Good motherboard for i5-4670K

Hi
I am planning on building myself a new PC, and am a bit lost regarding motherboards.

I like to have a decent computer, but i do not engage in overclocking and have never done so. What reasonable motherboard would you guys suggest? im thinking full size ATX or micro ATX.

  1. Best answer
    Full ATX
    ASUS Maximus VI HERO
    MSI Z87-GD65
    Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD4

    M-ATX
    Gigabyte GA-Z87-G1.Sniper
    ASUS Maximus VI Gene

    i have a asus gene vi myself but not done any gaming on it yet :)
  2. Actually i just came across an asus Z87-Pro. I liked the idea about its wifi features. Do you think that compares to the motherboards you suggested?
  3. The Asrock Z87 Extreme4 is about $160 and is a great motherboard for the price. I have the Z77 version of it and it was amazing to work with and also has great programs that come with it like Xfast Ram, Lan and USB with speed up USB, Ram and your internet. Also go with a full ATX size MB since it will have more space and compatibility should you want to upgrade.

    PS: I saw you said that you don't want to overclock but I suggest you go with a Z series motherboard and a K series processor so if ever in the future you find that you need more power you can overclock.
  4. Like the Asus and GB mobos, might look at the ASRock Z87 Extreme 4, wouldn't touch MSI
  5. I am going with a K processor. The non K edition is only about 5 dollar less :P
  6. For a basic no-frills motherboard that overclocks well and can do 2-way SLI/Crossfire, the cheapest options IMO are the Asrock Z87 Extreme3 and Gigabyte GA-Z87X-D3H. They're in the $130 neighborhood.

    ... and if you're not going to overclock much or run SLI/Crossfire, you could go even cheaper than that.
