    Here are nine popular motherboards that should work well for you: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=2010200280%201070509908%204802&name=Top%20Sellers

    Before buying I suggest doing a search of the newegg reviews of the board for ‘kentsfield’ to see if anyone has run into any weird issues, as well as double checking the manufacturer’s page for the board your interested in to make sure they confirm kentsfield compatibility.
