Any suggestions ? I'm thinking the msi z77 mpower..

The MPower is a solid board. I'd also recommend the Gigabyte UD3H, UP4 or UP5 boards.

I personally recommend the Gigabyte UD3H, just make sure you get the ULTRA durable, not just the durable (D3H). Can never go wrong with Gigabyte, their CS has never done me wrong.

I don't like their (Gigabyte's) bios & software..

Sorry for your loss frown.gif

I always measure fan mount screws before using them as well. Another tip is to do a test-install of one screw and see how many turns it takes before it contacts the fins. Number of turns = number of threads.

I think MSI boards do not support offset mode. I'm pretty happy with my MVG. Most of the features the Formula has, at a very lower price.

I read somewhere that they re-enabled the offset mode in a bios update, they said they initially thought overclockers don't care for it...

Isn't the MVG micro-ATX ? I have a problem sticking a tiny board in a case that supports much larger ones.. can't explain it. lol

I generally do finger tight, plus 1/4 of a turn practicing very light torque/pressure on the screwdriver.

Maybe having 38M thick fans makes this easier?
