So the motherboard in my gaming machine has died, I would like to try and find a suitable LGA1150 board given I currently have an i7 and 32GB of Kingston Hyper-X memory.


If anyone has one they wish to sell can you please get in touch with make and model and what you want for it.




Much appreciated, if worst comes to the worst I guess I have to tell my wife I need to upgrade :p

When my gigabyte gaming board inexplicably stopped powering on I got another similar one off aliexpress for about 2/3rds of what the local trademe dreamers wanted for one. I think that was 1151 tho, but loads of tested and in some cases repaired used boards on aliexpress for ok prices.

What CPU do you have? I have an Asus Maximus Hero VI Z87 but that only supports gen 4 CPUs.
