So I decided I want to take the leap to the 2700K today. The thing is I want to find a motherboard with the following attributes (if possible):
Ivy Bridge Compatible
PCI-E 3.0 (with Bios/firmware update)
Supports SLI (Tri SLI is a plus)
Basically I want it to be able to switch to IB IF I DECIDE TO (which I highly highly highly doubt but just in case) and have all the supported features of IB. Also I may choose to put a water block on it as well so Ill be checking to see if whatever suggestions you guys make have compatible water blocks.
After doing some reading I've read a lot of people having problems with gigabyte boards. Anyone care to vouch for their quality control? I do have 2 gigabyte 580s that have no trouble but just want to be sure
