There a 3 motherboard versions with this socket that will work: H67 P67 Z68 They all offer slightly different features with the Z68 being the best of the bunch (a P67 and H67 combined) Most gaming builds will opt for the Z68 or P67. I recommend looking to these brands: ASUS GIGABYTE ASRock MSI Here's a TOMS HARDWARE link comparing some of the Z68 Boards: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/z68xp-ud3-dz68db,review-3... | Report abuse redhotbd August 5, 2011 4:58:52 PM Out of personal experience, I would choose ASUS. Their mobos may cost a little more, but they are solid and are often worth the extra $$$. I had a bad experience with Gigabyte, so I'm kinda wary of doing business with them. Z68 is definitely the version you want... | Report abuse ScrewySqrl Gaming Expert August 5, 2011 5:01:18 PM there is one other socket: H61, which has the fewest features (no crossfire/sli, no overclock, no SATA 3 oe USB 3 by default (though there are models with that) intended as a bargain basement board. | Report abuse realdaniel1989 August 15, 2011 8:21:06 AM Thanks guys!! I've gotten the Z68 but I could find the Asus mobo here in Malaysia and even the P68 versions were too expensive for me so I went with gigabyte z68 x-ud3p-b3. Built my comp already and it's working great.
