H61 vs b75

whats the difference between these 2 cards? they have the same amount of pci-e 3.0 slots and they both have a pci-e 2.0 @4 slot. 2 legacy pci slots. both lga1155 only difference i can think is the usb 3.0 and b75 supports 32 gigs of ram? should i just go with the cheaper h61

  1. i am not expert in this but i heard H61 is no good if you plan to use SSD. don't know more details, but i think this is sata connection.

    there is a good article to explain it
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_1155

    in simple words
    h61 and b75 are chipsets for lga1155 cpu socket of intel
    b75 is much better than h61 due to native support for 2nd/3rd gen core series cpu, native 1600mhz ram support with 3rd gen cpu, native sata 3, usb3, pci-e v3 support, it also support base clock overclocking

    purchasing decesion of either h61 or b75 depends on your purpose and your cpu , and budget too so provide some details here .

    the h61 and b75 is just $15 difference so i just wanted to know if i was wasting $15 dollars for features i didnt need but i guess i do. thanks
  4. if you don't need those extra features then you can go for h61 ;)
  5. I've built PC's using same hardware onto both boards. The resulting WEI's for the Intel G1610 CPU goes up when installed on the B75 board.
    Graphics from 4.3 to 5.1
    Primary SSD from 7.3 to 8.0
    Other benchmarks stay the same

    Much better to spend another tenner or so on the B75 boards. The Asrocks with Ultra-Fast boot are impressive for the money.
