Which motherboard would you pick? Tags: Asus Motherboards Components Last response: November 11, 2011 8:24 PM in Components Share xwwwx November 11, 2011 7:39:33 PM I am thinking about building an intel i5 2500k with 16gb ram (1600MHZ GSKILL RIPJAW 12800CL9D) and a 1GB ATI HD6950. I can pick from these motherboards: GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD3H B3 s1155 ASUS M4A89TD PRO USB3 AM3 ASUS M5A99X EVO AM3 ASUS P8H67-M EVO s1155 ASUS P8P67 s1155 ASUS P8P67-M PRO s1155 MSI P67A-C45 Which one would you pick and why?

I wanted a micro-atx motherboard, and one that could overclock a 2600K. At the time it was the only board that met those two requirements. You will be disappointed if you buy the AM3 boards, the 2500K will not fit them. On the rest, take your pick, they are all good. The ASUS P8P67-M EVO is also a micro-atx motherboard with 4 expansion slots. M-atx effectively precludes using dual graphics cards. Not that two can't fit, but the top card will get overly hot. To use 16gb of ram, you will want a board with 4 ram slots. Some smaller boards will have only two, requiring a 2 x 8gb ram kit which will be very expensive. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
