Best Motherboard for this setup.

Hey guys, I'm considering buying a new computer and I've decided which Graphics card and CPU I want.

The problem is I find it hard to get my head around Motherboards (or which ones i need for my setup)
And i was hoping someone here could give me a quick referral.

My GPU is a GeForce GTX 670
And my CPU is a Intel Core i7 3930K 3.2GHz LGA2011

Further help would concern how many fans I need along with if i need a sound card or not (I don't run surround sound but with my computer sometimes I hear a buzzing noise that drives me up the wall, I concluded it was due to a crappy sound card.)

  1. Hey, my budget isn't too limited, im willing to spend upto 800 on a CPU and 400 on a motherboard if need be, I couldn't actually find a Third gen Intel I7 CPU in Australia that was more than a quad core. So i guess im stuck with 2nd gen..
  2. Wow! Well if that's the case, here are the options you got -

    ASUS Rampage IV Extreme
    MSI Big Bang XPower II
    ASRock X79 Extreme11
    ASUS Sabertooth X79
    EVGA x79 FTW

    All of these boards are AMAZING. Have a look at all of their specs and make your decision :)

    (I'd go for the MSI Big Bang XPower II Or the ASUS Rampage IV Extreme)
