This ATX board from Gigabyte has all the expandability you would need. The specs will tell you that it has loads of SATA, USB and PCI slots. I like the fact that there are 4 fan headers plus the CPU fan header.

I like having as many RAM slots as possible and this one has 8. I also put in a fat CPU cooler (AEGIR SD128264) and still have space to access the other RAM slots closest to the CPU.

Third GEN i7 chips run on this board first time - no need for initial BIOS update and if you do happen to update the bios, there's a spare version on a secondary chip. The BIOS also has a nice graphical interface (A bit slow but looks and works great).

Performance wise, this board flys. Paired with an i7 3820 running at stock speeds and 8GB DDR3 1333 + ATI 5870, I'm getting 26,000 points in 3DMark06. My old i7-920 overclocked to 3GHz with the same GPU was only getting 20,100 points. It runs cool too. The heatsinks are well positioned across the board..what more could you ask for!

  • Overall 5*
  • Ease of use 4*
