I'm building a new PC which is for non-gaming, but I do a lot of photo editing. I have an existing HP 30" Monitor with a really wide color gamut that I love, but being 5 years old, it only has DVI input (need dual-link DVI input).

For my new PC, I've been looking to built the PC around an LGA 1150 (haswell) Mini-ITX motherboard, but can't find a single motherboard that supports 2560x1600 resolution out of dual link DVI. I then looked at Micro-ATX boards and same situation.

All the motherboards I am looking at have HDMI and/or displayport that support 2560x1600, but that doesn't help me since my monitor only accepts DVI. I wanted to build a smaller PC and not have to resort to a dedicated video card just for dual link DVI. My other alternative is to buy a newer monitor that that seems foolish given this monitor works fine.

Does anyone know of a LGA 1150 Hagwell motherboard in Mini-ITX (ideally) or micro-ATX format that support dual-link DVI that will drive 2560x1600 resolution?

Wlcome to SPCR!

ASUS H97I-PLUS LGA 1150 Intel H97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard

From what i recall you needed dual dvi connector to do a 2560x1600, according to the specs, seems like that, Video Ports 1 x DVI-D. From the pictures seems like that as well,

I would still confirm with an Asus CS representative to crosscheck in fact its a real dual dvi, that would support your desired 2560x1600.

Not offhand. There are active displayport to dual DVI adapters out there for $30+...reviews seem to be hit/miss.

Abula: Dual link DVI is not two DVI ports. It is a single port with all 6 TMDS channels enabled instead of 3. While a single link DVI cable is obvious (it is missing pins) you can't tell as single VS dual link DVI port visually.

Im sorry if me omitting the word LINK, lead you to believe i meant dual ports, i though it was clear.

In that case it's only a single link DVI. 1920x1200@60Hz is single channel, 2560x1600@60Hz is dual channel. Not the end of the world if you can use HDMI however.

My monitor doesn't support HDMI either, only DVI. I need it to be Dual Link DVI at 2560x1600.

Based on replies, looks like I'm out of luck for mobo with native dual link dvi support at the resolution I need.

I overlooked the option of using a displayport to dual link DVI adapter. Need to look into that...

A DVI-HDMI-adapter might work. They are dirt cheap since DVI and HDMI are electrically compatible.

HDMI and single link are electrically the same. Don't think there are HDMI to Dual Link DVI adapters that support this resolution. I think it needs to be an active adapter and the only ones I've seen are Displayport based.
