Please recommend me a motherboard

Post by Lupine Lacuna » Sat Oct 06, 2012 10:43 am

I currently run the Asus P8h67-I Deluxe in my H3 SODD. THe system is completely passive but as reported in the relevant thread, my motherboard gives off an incredibly irritating electrical noise which I cannot stop. I am therefore looking to replace it. Can anyone recommend me something similar that you know for a fact does not have electrical noise?

I have a feeling that for most boards this will be a "luck of the draw" situation. I've generally had good luck with ASUS as far as coil whine goes, but obviously you have had a different experience.

Is it a new board? ASUS generally has good QA, so they might give you a replacement if you ask. Obviously the replacement might also make noise, but it might be worth a try.
