Hello,

This is my PC configuration:

Processor - Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3570K CPU @ 3.40GHz 3.80 GHz
Mother Board - Gigabyte Z77X-UP5 TH-CF
Installed RAM - 16.0 GB (15.9 GB usable)
GPU - Intel Processor onboard HD Graphics 4000
PSU - 750 WATTS CorSaiR
System type - 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor
Microsoft Windows 10 (10.0) Professional 64-bit (Build 19044)

Lately, my motherboard is giving lot of issues, (unexpected reboots, 2 out of 4 faulty Ram slots, CMOS battery depletes in 3 days max, every reboot requires to clik load optmize defaults then boot, sometimes BIOS auto-recovers itself, etc. etc.


I have planned to purchase a new Socket 1155 motherboard but have very limited options in my country - INDIA
Above 2 models from Zebronics are available with local vendor.

Can you help me decide best among two ?
Also let me know if there are any better motherboards (1155 socket) available in India, so i can select those instead.

My requirements:
HDMI
SSD
SATA drive
8 * 2 sticks = 16 GB RAM
USB 3.0

Since B75 is newer, it is also better,
chipset comparison: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/products/compare.html?productIds=52806,64030

With 60-series chipset, you will not get USB 3.0.

Also let me know if there are any better motherboards (1155 socket) available in India, so i can select those instead.
Best chipset MoBo for that CPU would be Z77 or Z75. Other 70-series, compatible chipsets, would be H77, B75 and Q77.

Thanks but those best mobo are not available (since this almost 12+ years old technology)

Z77 or Z75 are Socket 1155 motherboards ?
If you come across those kindly suggest

Lga1155 is 2nd gen Sandy-Bridge 60 series chipsets or 3rd gen Ivy-Bridge 70 series chipsets. So 2nd gen would be B65, Z68, 3rd gen is B75, Z77.

The Intel 3570k is 3rd Gen Ivy-Bridge cpu, so will work on a 2nd Gen motherboard on 1 condition, the bios must have been updated somewhere in the past to accommodate 3rd gen cpus. That would mean at some point a 2nd gen Sandy-Bridge cpu was used to update for Ivy-Bridge or the board was manufactured late enough to have a bios that includes 3rd Gen cpus.

Stick with the B75/Z77 motherboards, don't opt for B65/H65/Z68 as there's no guarantee they will accept your cpu. It'll physically fit, but there's a good possibility it won't work because bios upgrades back then were too easy to brick the board so were considered a taboo unless absolutely required.

There are plenty of B75 MoBos out there, rest are more rare but still, few findings;

That should do, for now.

Amazon.com offers international shipping (from USA), and some of those i linked, i can order to Europe, where i live.

Thank you for search but, those are not available for my country India
Www.amazon.in
Yes, they may not be in Amazon.in, but did you check if they can be internationally shipped to India?

E.g i live in Europe, and when ordering from Amazon, i usually do it from Amazon.de, since Germany is closest to where i live. But there have been products that aren't in the listing of Amazon.de, whereby i had to buy them from Amazon.com. E.g my AVerMedia Ballista Trinity GS315 speakers. Sure, shipping cost is more, but without other options, you either pay the higher shipping cost and wait far longer, or you don't get that product at all.

All-in-all, your best option currently is to go with the B75 chipset MoBo you found. But overall, i'd go with newer CPU-MoBo combo. E.g Intel 4th gen CPU with 90-series MoBo (if you want to reuse your DDR3 RAM) or newer CPU-MoBo-RAM combo than that, with DDR4 RAM.

Also, doesn't India have Ebay-esque markets for obsolete hardware? They may not be online markets, but instead street markets. Flea market or sorts.

Will check again, but custom and shipping costs are way too high from US to India.

There's still a market for lga1155 in India. You can Google Z77 and get sites like FlipKart, m.indiamart.com etc.
Thanks for reply.
Flipkart is deadzone (they list products which are unavailable)
Indiamart is only a listing of manufacturers/dealers.
Contacted nearly 10+ and none of those have this series..

How about street markets? Have you visited those? Since they often doesn't have online listing, or website in that matter. (Regarding what i've seen around the world). But going on site, usually has good selection.

E.g this thing (Nehru Place Market in New Delhi), vlog:
He speaks Indian in there and i have 0 clue what he is saying. Video is to show that there are street markets for (old) PC hardware, even in India.

Nehru Place Market looks so big, that i could almost say: "If you doesn't find it there - it doesn't exist.". :LOL:
