Are these good? http://www.scanmalta.com/eshop/asus-p8h61-m-le-usb3-s11... http://www.scanmalta.com/eshop/intel-core-i5-3450-ivy-b... More about : compatibility jaquith a c 717 V Motherboard a b à CPUs August 27, 2012 3:29:49 PM The CPU is fine, but ehh on the H61 Chipset for a couple reasons: 1. IB support may require a BIOS update (Fail to Post; requiring a donor CPU, Repair Shop or RMA to update), and 2. unless you'll NEVER need more RAM i.e. 4x_GB RAM. Therefore, I'd look at one of the ASUS P8H77-M series - http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/Inte... as the most comparable options with your (IB) Ivy Bridge CPU. dillonthebest August 27, 2012 3:39:28 PM I found 1 http://www.scanmalta.com/eshop/asus-p8h77-v-le-h77-ivy-...

Get the answer jaquith a c 717 V Motherboard a b à CPUs August 27, 2012 3:55:55 PM Wow that's a huge price jump, but I looked at your site and it's the best & cheapest option to support your CPU out of the box. I sorted -> http://www.scanmalta.com/eshop/components/motherboards/... The alternative is a Sandy Bridge CPU and the Asus P8H61-M LE/USB3, but at that site your choices are severally limited - http://www.scanmalta.com/eshop/components/cpu/intel.htm... So yeah I'd get the IB i5 3450 and the P8H77-V LE (ATX) or if you need mATX form factor either the P8H77-M LE or P8Z77-M. The ASUS P8Z77-M might be a better option if you'll upgrade the CPU later. dillonthebest August 27, 2012 4:03:39 PM Thanks alot! Can't find your answer ? Ask !
