I have the z97-I plus, I can definitely vouch for it. I like the features it comes with, its a solid mobo for this particular build... Great bios too, im using a P/P h60 setup, temps are decent depending on how hot my room is though... I posted some pics a few pages back if you wanna see...
That video proves my point, it's better for multitasking and doing other stuff, in terms of sheer gaming performance, it isn't worth the money, 6fps difference (when he should have overclocked that 4690 in his test, I'm sure it would have closed the gap on the fps) for a cpu that is almost 3 times more expensive... No thanks
List me the games that 6/8 cores make a significant difference in performance, i'll wait.If you are a graphics designer/music composer, I can understand, otherwise its strictly e-peen.
For those having a problem with light games, STOP PLAYING LIGHT GAMES! it's 2014, we're off that weak sauce, CHALLENGE YOUR MIGHT PEOPLE!
My guess is cuz some people have those unreasonably priced LG2011 CPU's that don't weigh that much into gaming performance, so comparing Graphics scores is more adequate of graphic performance than looking at the overall score... just spit ballin here jerry
1. Temp wise im okay, obviously its going to run a bit hotter than say having it in a ATX case with more cooling. I get around 35c-41c idle temps, around 55-65c load depending on what game im running. It still stays under 70 which is all I care about. Noise is pretty decent, the Cougar fans im using are fairly silent, plus I wear headphones so it doesnt bother me at all. One thing for sure id say is change out the 2 92mm fans at the front, I put in some Arctic F9 ones (or...
Im happy Temps are much better than I thought they would be with this case...

Got my 970 today, thought that because it wasnt the blower kind id have temp issues, so far NO temp issues, MSI card runs super cool, got a solid +150 on the core and +475 on the mem, loving it so far...
