Best 1155 Motherboards – P67 i3, i5, i7 Combos

ASUS P8P67 DELUXE LGA 1155 2400 ATX Motherboard

In early January of 2011 Intel released its new Sandy Bridge series or 2nd generation of “i” series processors.  These CPU boasted the new 32nm lithography that both performance enthusiasts and gaming fans alike had been waiting for.  New motherboards with 1155 pins were made to accommodate Intel’s new technology.

In order to use the new Sandy Bridge i3, i5, and i7 CPU you’ll need a LGA (land grid array) 1155 motherboard in combo with your CPU.  In late February of 2011 Intel sent out a press release stating that they were having problem with their Cougar Point chipset technology which was causing problems over time in the performance of PC peripherals including the SATA hard-disk drive or optical drive.  Luckily this was promptly fixed and REV 3.0 or B3 revision motherboards were shipped out immediately.  Still, consumers will want to make sure to purchase their motherboard from a trusted retailer in order to ensure that they get a proper revised motherboard.

*Look for the sticker on the box and check the bios to make sure you get the B3 revision.
