I am looking at building a new rig and I have everything pretty well set as to what I am going to get except the mobo and CPU. The CPU will be either 2500k or 2600k I'll decide before I buy if the hundred is worth it. I am looking for a motherboard for one of thes LGA1155, so that it will be as Ivy Bridge compatible as possible. I dont mind spending 200+ on the mobo if it is worth the extra features, Currently I am looking around 150 -200 for the board.

Basically best bang for your buck lga1155 mobo, btw I'm going for a black/red theme in a haf 922 - so if it is at all possible to get these colours it would be excellent, not really stuck on the colour just a plus

Other components:
Haf 922
CM 212+
4 Sticks of DDR G. Skills Ram
Will eventually get a new GPU, I hope to have SLI compatibility

Thanks For any input

I really like that asus board but I'm not sure about microATX in general and especially with the CM 212+ and lots of ram.

The ASRock you recommended looks good and has a lot of features, when I previously built my pc 3-4 years ago ASRock wasnt a great brand is it better now? and worth almost 300?

MicroATX is fine, you just get fewer PCI lanes. Frankly I don't think the ASRock is worth 300. I only selected it for the red/black thing. If you don't care about it being blue tr the P8Z68 PRO/GEN3 from ASUS
