Moving my i5-3570 to new MOBO. Do I need new MOBO or can I use a different one?

#1ReconXBLPosted 1/28/2014 8:20:17 PM
Can I use a different LGA 1155 MOBO, or do I need to use the exact model I have now? Have to get a new MOBO because the one I have has only one working DIMM slot and I don't really want to use 8 GB sticks.

o_o

Thanks.

Yeah any LGA 1155 should be fine. You might need to reinstall Windows though if I'm not mistaken since that's tied to the motherboard.

I planned on buying a new HDD and Windows 7 anyways. So I should be good with a new model MOBO with my current i5? That's great news.

Correction, not a new HDD, but that Seagate 1TB SSHD. >_>

Make sure to get something with a starting digit of 7 in the chipset (H77, Z77 etc) just to be sure. Those are the boards made for ivy bridge parts. The earlier ones would probably work but if you got one that didn't have the current bios you'd be SoL because you wouldn't be able to reflash unless you also have a sandy bridge CPU laying around.

Since you have the 3570 non K, you're not gonna really need that Z77 Extreme 4. Even if you OC the boost on the 3570, you could get by on a Z85 or a cheaper Z77. But the Extreme 4 is great so if you're set on it then get it. Could mess with OCing the boost clock.
