RECOMMENDED MOTHERBOARD TO REPLACE MY ASrOCK z77 eXTREME 4
« on: October 12, 2017, 08:22:31 PM »

My Asrock Z77 Extreme 4 motherboard is dead.
:(

I am looking for a recommendation to replace/upgrade my dead motherboard with a new one. I originally wanted to buy a used Asrock Z77 Extreme 4 ( socket: 1155) to replace the dead one. However, the used ones are very expensive, more expensive than the new motherboards. I better buy a new one.

What motherboard would you recommend? I would like to move everything onto the new motherboard, i7 intel, memory, SSD, Gpu, etc. I would use the pc for photo/photoshop and video editing.

What I have:
- i7 intel
- memory: 4Gx2|G.SKILL F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL
- GPU: ASUS Radeon HD 7750 DirectX 11 HD7750-1GD5-V2 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

THANKS SO MUCH!!!!

You're going to be hard pressed to find a new board for that socket - 2011/2012 generation tech.  You may want to consider going with a newer barebones to put the SSDs & GPU.  What other slots are you using, how many internal drives?

i have always had good luck with ASUS. GO to their website and filter for Intel and socket 1155. then check the cpu compatibility reference for the motherboard you are interested in.
