Looking for a Socket 1155 MB (preferrably ASUS but other reputable brand will do) with RS232 COM port for CAD equipment.

Can someone recommend one, please.

I dont know if there are any modern mobos around that have this onboard. Unless its got the header on the mobo

stormdragon: the MB in your link doesn't state that it's a RS232 com port, I checked with ASUS manual and it says it's a 9-pin com 1. Not too sure it's the same.

Yup 9 pin serial is the same as RS232 and a lot of boards still have the header pins on the board but don't include the actual 9-pin socket to plug anything into it.
You need to get a serial header cable as well, like this:

Haven't seen of those for a long time though.
The other option is a USB-Serial adapter cable.

Should work, a lot of motherboards still have the header, just check the specs.

Also there are these;

Another alternative is a PCI Serial card: http://www.pp.co.nz/AddonCards.php
