    Can someone recommend a H55-based motherboard that's easy to mod for Win7 and inexpensive? The brands I can purchase easily where I am are Intel, Gigabyte, ASRock, and Asus. Gigabyte H55M-UD2H looks pretty tempting for the price/features. At the same price I can get the Intel DH55TC or the ASRock H55M. The Asus P7H55-M PRO is more expensive but it has radiators over the voltage regulators; dunno if these are worth $20 extra. The GA-H55M-USB3 gives me USB 3.0 at the same price.

    get any that has SLIC 2.1 in their BIOS .. that is Key..
    i would recommend researching to see which companies are offering it with their M/Bs ..
    that way you don't have to do any "modding" ..

    If BIOS mods will be taken into consideration then I'd pick the ff. They would be harder to pick off by WAT.

    Asus P7H55M-Pro with Asus SLIC.

    MSI H55-GD65 with Acer or MSI SLIC

    and

    Intel DH55TC with Dell SLIC.

    The MSI H55-GD65 has a dummy SLIC which is replaced by the real one by the Award automated tool. You can use the new iIntel tool to insert a Dell SLIC into the board's BIOS.
