    best motherboard for intel i5-4690K

    I am looking to upgrade my computer because my old motherboard just died recently. So, I am looking to purchase an Intel i5-4690K which will also be a graphics upgrade because the integrated graphics should be faster than the my current 9500 GT graphics card. So, I am searching for a motherboard that offers decent quality at cheap price. I am also going to overclock the processor but not to a great extent. Thanks for any help in advance.

    It really depends on how much you are trying to spend on the motherboard. If you can tell us your exact budget then we will able to find a decent board for the intel i5-4690K. If you are looking to purchase a board in between around $150 to $170 then I will recommend you to go for the Gigabyte Z97 gaming 5 or 7, which is also a very good overclocking motherboard. There are 8 true power phases on both the mobos and will also support your Intel processor as well.

    You can also try to go with the Gigabyte U5 motheboards that will cost you only $130 and the CPU comes for $199. Most of the Gigabyte motherboard are very good and tough because they have got 8 sata ports and pci slots as well, but note that most of the higher mobo's do not support legacy PCI slots. I dont think that you will require any Z system however, you can find a motherboard that can meet your specific requirements anytime that you want.

    I would suggest you to go with the ASRock Z97M OC Formula Intel Motherboard. It comes at a decent rate of only $130. The main feature of this board is that it is future upgradable and has Z97 chipset with 9 phase power delivery. This board also supports Crossfire and Sli configurations. There are many fan headers, killer LAN, and UEFI is very easy to use compared to any other board in the same segment. You should definitely invest in this board for sure.
