Gigabyte GA-B85-HD3 Desktop Motherboard - Intel B85 Express Chipset - Socket H3 LGA-1150
  • Intel B85
  • 4th-Gen Intel Core i7 / i5/ i3 (LGA1150)
  • DDR3 1600/1333
  • $89.99
  • $78.99

Pros:

Clean layout, with four SATA3 ports and two SATA2 ports in a good location and room for tons of RAM.
Three fan headers.
Supports procs up to i7 4771.
Affordable (I got it on sale).

Cons:

Will not boot with more than 8GB of RAM until the chipset driver is installed.
Does not come with latest BIOS (but it does have an easy-to-use upgrade utility).

Other Thoughts:

I rebuilt my system using this board and an i7 4771, 240GB Samsung SSD, 16GB of G.Skill RAM (but I had to start with 8), and a GTX760. The only driver I had to install was the chipset, Windows 8.1 took care of the LAN, audio, and video drivers for the onboard video and video card. I did a clean install because I didn't want any instability caused by driver conflict. So far everything is rock stable --- this is a good board.
