An eye popping price for a motherboard! I can recommend Asus boards. I'm currently running an Asus P5B
Thinking of building a new machine.
I have a good motherboard at the mo, Gigabyte Sli Quad Royal, but its too loud & sounds like a server with its onboard fan. Its not easily Modded.
I found this, which should provide some future proofing too, but what u guys think??
MSI P7N Diamond nForce 780i SLI Socket 775 8 channel X-Fi Xtreme Audio ATX Motherboard
What kind of case are you running, you may be able to solve at lease some of your sound issues with a better quality one that will rattle less due to fan movement. The 'quiet' cases do make a huge difference in comparison to the cheaper more generic variety.
If you don't want SLI I would go for an Intel chipset P35 or X48 would both be ample maybe even the P45 (replaces P35).
cheers guys. Ill give a quieter case a shot.....hope it helps a bit ...will be alot cheaper anyways.
