I have the following :
cpu : i7 -870 @ 2,93 ghz
cpu cooler : Noctua NH-D14 *
ram : Kingston HyperX 1600 XMP *
gpu : Palit gtx 460 Sonic Platinum
psu : Corsair TX 750W
case : Haf 922
hdd : Seagate 1TB
audio : old soundblaster audigy
dvd-rw : old asus
current mobo : Gigabyte H55M-UD2H
*= compatibility issues with mobos
OK ... thing is , my current mobo is mATX and my noctua is so big that there is no way I can fit my gpu in the normal x16 pci express slot... that , and it's crap
I want to buy a 200$ - 250$ mobo that is ATX and with intel P55 chipset (h55 is not that good as I heard .. not so sure) , and sadly where I live I'm limited to the products that I can buy . Could you guys please gimme your feedback as to what mobo to buy at this price range? I would very much appreciate it . Thank you !
Hey thanks a lot for the list u compiled .. The Asus P7P55 WS Supercomputer (dont know if its "with NF200") is the only mobo available... The name of the site will not help 'cause it doesn't have support for english or any other language
Thanks for clearing it out for me ...but strangely the SUPERCOMPUTER mobo with this NF200 chip says it can only do x8 x8 on SLI ... Anyway, does it matter if it's "D-E pro" instead of just "D pro" ?
The NF200 chip allows for x16 x16 SLI CF. Yes I meant the Asus P7P55E pro or deluxe that allow X8 X8 SLI CF.
So far which one is "best" out of PRO , DELUXE and SUPERCOMPUTER ?
EDIT: on the noctua site it says there can be a "Possible compatibility issues with video cards that have large protruding components at the back " with SUPERCOMPUTER , D PRO and D DELUXE ... but says it's ok with D-E PRO and D-E DELUXE
