Need new motherboard, keeping same cpu

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello everyone! I have a question for you: What is a good motherboard for my Intel i7 2600? (Need 4 slots for RAM) I would prefer a list in the order of about $50, $70, $100, and up (Pretty much I just want to see what the money can do for different motherboards) 

The only reason why I am trying to get a new motherboard is because dumbass me bent alot of the pins on the mobo that touch the pads on the cpu, so now the pc doesn't even post. Other than that, thanks!

Dental tool, toothpick, or itsy bitsy screwdriver and some patience will solve this.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

You can try to bend the pins back, it is tedious and i usually use a razorblade personally.  But if you're just looking for "good mobos" for an older series like that you're going to struggle.  Luckily for you that was a super common series, and any motherboard with a compatible chipset and adequate cpu power.  Since your chip only needs 95 watts I believe a single 4 pin is enough power but i could be wrong thats just off the top of my head.

8 pin is usually recommended for older CPUs that you'd like to turbo, because 4 pins won't really be on motherboards with good VRMs that deliver constant power (unless it's itx)

I'm just looking for a motherboard at this point. Would it be alright if you could send me links (or at least the names of the MOBOs) so I could figure out which one to purchase? I do need it to have 4 RAM slots though.

It's really worth a try to fix your board, but if you must go finding a replacement, just check eBay for B75 or Z77 boards.

Did you lose pins? All you said in the original post is that pins are bent.

Yes I lost pins. I'd rather get a new MOBO at this point.

Then any of the B or higher H chipsets would probably be fine.

I have little experience with CPU compatibility to MOBOs, so would it be alright if some people would post links to those? I can do 8 pins to power the CPU, and I do have 4 sticks of the same exact RAM (DDR3 to be specific)

Any B85 or H87 will do, no links necessary. Will you be using eBay for the purchase?

Not optimal for hardware this old, you'll end up overpaying.

Do you mean that the MOBO will be overpriced?

Yes, buying a new motherboard from Amazon would be an extra 66% more expensive at least, unless you somehow find a listing sub $100 for a good board.

Dang. Ok, so I already did some searching, but I can't find any with 4 slots for ram (I want to be able to run 16gb, not just eight) I'm going to keep looking.

Hey, do you think this one will work?

Aside from it working, do you think it is worth it for the CPU that I have? (i7 2600)

I do. A good b series board for a locked i7 has always been a good idea
