I'm on the fence here. Building a new HTPC, I'd like to go with the 1151 and DDR4 but I have a PC I can steal the g3258 and ddr3ram for the build with a 1150 mobo.

Wonder if I can sell the ATX 1150 mobo. hmmm decisions.

Too much work selling it, ebay sucks hard. DDR3 will last a long time, more than 90% of the market still uses DDR3. I'm getting it pairing with a spare i5 and 950 for a small gaming rig. I play Dota and Overwatch mostly.

Great board, I have owned two of them, one for going on 2 years and one for going on one year. Both have been problem free.

How much of a future-proofing penalty is the LGA1150-ness of this? I've always figured one should go with the current socket, especially once we're nearly a year into skylake/1151. But enough people jump on these older socket deals—at prices that don't seem scorching hot—that I wonder if I'm mistaken.

I see this has the Dehumidifier function, how many square feet can this handle?

I have a 300sq sf space I'd like it to dehumidify.

I don't think that's one of the features of this board. But if the system is under some load it can probably take the chill out of the air in a small room.

Dehumidifier
Dampness kills most electronics, so it's a better idea to keep your personal computer dry. Now users may prevent motherboard damages due to dampness by enabling Dehumidifier. When it is enabled, the computer will power on automatically to dehumidify the system after entering S4/S5 state.

It is a feature, I wonder where the water goes to? Do I put the deposit tank on the outside of my case?

There are socket 1155 Xeon processors like the 1290v2 that score almost 10000 on passmark.

Not that you'd want to buy one, but that's a processor from 2012 that outperforms 80% of Intel's current chips.

This is a very good motherboard, had mine well over a year and OC'd CPU and GPU and it's been rock solid.

It's always nice to get the latest CPU, but for my needs, the decision is usually made by the motherboard itself. There's not a big enough difference between 6xxx and even 2xxx to make the newest gen a "must-have"... To me, 1151, 1150, 1155 whichever can build my desired project the cheapest...

However, the newest standards for connectivity are going to be on the newest sockets. SATA Express, USB 3.1, m.2... etc... you're mainly going to find those on 1151 boards. If those are things you think you will need, then you are likely going to buy Skylake.

The RAM standard isn't a big deal at this point. There is no real benefit to DDR4 yet, and when a benefit emerges, it will likely be accompanied by a new socket (since Intel loves changing sockets every chance they get)... The DDR4 you get today will likely even perform worse than similar DDR3. Down the road they will tighten up production and get better yields and such, but I don't know how much today's processors and motherboards will get from those optimized DIMMs. DDR3 is at it's end of life, which is a mixed blessing. There likely won't be anymore advances for DDR3, but that also means they have already made many many advancements for it already, and now even the budget DDR3 outperforms the stuff we were buying when DDR3 first came out.

Long story short, processors and RAM have been pretty much stagnant over the past few years (uncluding 6xxx and DDR4) so pick a motherboard with features you want, not because it holds the latest CPU or RAM...

I thought this was a joke at first but it does list dehumidifier in the overview on newegg. I thought humidity was a good thing especially for mechanical hard drives as dry movie parts can develop static.
