i’m a a total newfag in this forum but i’m watching the forum now for over a year now.
I thought you could help me with this:
I’m planning to throw out my old MSI B85 G43 Gaming as all of my SATA ports are occupied.
So i’m running the I7 4770K on 16GB and am willing to keep it which boils down to any board with 1150 socket.
As i am working in IT and commonly had bad experience with ASUS hardware, i’m against Motherboards from ASUS; but i’m not excluding them.
Special Requirements are as Follows:
- at least 8 SATA Ports
-opt. optical audio onboard (SPDIF)
-opt. M.2 Slot for newer SSDs
Don’t need any of the fancy stuff like fan controllers and such.
Price range is below 200 but may be expanded if needed.
Now its your turn. Recommend me a motherboard and/or share your experiences with them.
Would be glad to post Pictures after the Upgrade to pay back your effort.
Thank you in advance.
