Hello,
 
would need advice on selecting the appropriate motherboard (Socket 1155).
I need it to do simple assembly on which I will test the functionality of older processors (This will be an Intel i7 2600k - Lot of them).
 
Thank you :)

What kind of tests are you going to do.

Just see if it works, test the video, test RAM support, test for overclocking, everything + stress test.?

What is "lots", 5/100?

What kind of cooler will you use.

Will you need a mechanical CPU loader?

 

Some info, > http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_1155

Just basic testing - Functionality, verifing the processor operating frequency...

 

For now - Maximum 10 CPUs per week (so manual loading is not problem).

 

Maybe this? 

ASUS H61M-A/USB3 - Intel H61

Gday.

A H61 will do, this one. as your selected is out of stock. > http://www.newegg.co...ID=3938566&SID=

You may need to flash the BIOS, info, > http://www.asus.com/...0/HelpDesk_CPU/

This consumer type MB s not designed for the continuous install/uninstall of the heatsink/cooler, the retaining holes are likely to get worn/damaged quickly.

I would try to get hold of a detachable mounting plate from an old case, placed on an insulated surface so that you can screw the MB down to standoffs.
