Is the MSI worth the premium over the extreme6? I hate the stupid looking gun heat sink but that's a small price to pay ffor better performance.
And yeah, 22 power phase sounds meaty.
How much more is the Big Bang over the Extreme6 where you're purchasing from?
It's also unfortunate that you had a bad experience with Gigabyte, as their current boards have arguably the best VRMs on the market.
And I apologize, the one I meant to recommend in my last post was the X79-UP4
. Again, top of the line VRM on this board. Exceptional for overclocking.
