Don’t have anything against
Don’t have anything against Gigabyte. They were my choice of motherboards back then.
Today, it’s a different story. I’d like to know about durability due to heat from various components (GPU mostly).
– Has there been any new improvements with the capacitors and other components?
– Any motherboard recommendations for Gamers, Broadcasters/Streamers, and Casual Video Editing/3D Rendering?
– Which motherboard recommended for 2xSLI support
– What about onboard audio (well isolated, etc.)
Not looking into overclocking, however it’s always interesting to know for future possibilities!
Are there boards going to be
Are there boards going to be Hackintosh compatible?

I heard Intel’s Broadwell will use Socket 1150 also. Will Broadwell be compatible with Z97 Chip Set? Or will Broadwell bring it’s own newer chip set? If Broadwell will use the Z97 chip set then this is a pretty good “Near Future Proofing” scenario….
Are these new motherboards
Are these new motherboards only for Intel cpus ????
