    Well in consideration of the custom mATX case build thread here https://forums.overclockers.com.au/...-while-still-using-a-standard-layout.1260931/
    and in order to keep costs down and reuse some existing hardware, I am looking for a suitable mATX mobo so I can re-use my i7 4770 CPU.

    My existing ATX system is

    PSU THERMALTAKE SP-650P SMART POWER 80Plus Bronze
    MoBo Gigabyte GA-H87-D3H
    CPU intel i7-4770 @ 3.4Ghz
    RAM Kingston HyperX Blu 32Gb (4x8Gb)

    and I'd be looking to run an SSD or two.

    I've found this list of compatible motherboards
    http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/CPUs/Intel/Core_i7/i7-4770_motherboards.html
    there are a number of mATX options.

    1. I'm not sure whether any of these are still available at a reasonable price., and
    2. Any comments as to which brands to avoid and which to favour?


    Thanks.

    I'm still on the lookout for one of these if anyone happens to know where I can get one (even a guaranteed working 2nd hand one) ?
