Is there something wrong with 1155 type motherboards?

#1chiaPosted 4/16/2014 10:36:22 AM
It seems if I'm looking around for motherboards, I can't find any of the cool looking ones for 1155 socket types.

I can certainly find, good, practical boards for 1155, but it seems like most of the manufactures prefer the 1150 type socket when it comes to the better looking motherboards. (strictly aesthetically I mean)

Is there a reason for this?

Just curious, thanks!

1150 is the new standard.

not the latest board, thus less options?. Asus RoG (republic of Gamers) has some pretty boards...pricey tho..EVGA has some nice ones too

Welcome to Intel's upgrade path. New cpu usually equals a new socket.

Most 1150 boards have an 1155 counterpart if you look around.

"cool looking"

You don't buy a motherboard because it looks "cool", genius.


And 1155 is outdated. X79 and LGA1150 are the main socket types right now.

You don't... but at the same time you want it to please you when you look at it.

Unless you have a case without a window, then who cares ;)

Some people do. Some people go for aesthetics as well as functionality, especially when getting to the higher end builds where they use colored water for their cooling setup and braided wires. Some of the sickest looking builds use just 2 colors for everything like all white and orange.

Stop being so insulting over something you don't have a firm grasp of.
