I think your ram/gpu is because intel boards look to minimize space between the ram slots and the gpu. But I understand what you mean.

Your biggest issue will be not a whole lot of 1156 boards are atx, most are matx..... which is the same size as you have, unless youre running micro atx.

I'd go with the antec 300, with fans, and you'll never get case related heat issues. Maybe a less pricey haf.. but i think theyre ugly.

For me, any ASUS or Gigabyte is good. Just comes down to what components you need. USB3? number of usb slots? how many SATA slots. 3/6gbps? 7.1 audio? etc.

SATA is defined by the connector on the hard/cd drive.



No more grey cable.

USB 3 is newer and faster than USB 2. There aren't many devices made for it, but there may be in the future. Best be prepared.

SATA are your drive connections, youre most likely using 2.

Youre very limited for usb3 vand SATA 6 on 1156 boards, and i doubt the cost is worth it on them.

I have 2 SATA 6gbps and 2 USB3 on my P7P55D-E LX. Mine was just over $100. They are very affordable.

They are not abundant, but you can get those ports.

Newegg.com - BIOSTAR H55A+ LGA 1156 Intel H55 HDMI ATX Intel Motherboard

$80 + $8 shipping

USB3 and SATA6 are nice and all, but I figure you're like me and don't have either of them anyway.

F.Y.I. SATA is both singular and plural. No "SATAs" :P
