Why would you want that board, it has a 3+2 phase VRM. And MSI is notorious for using cheap hardware and motherboard fires. Ask AMD to send you a Gigabyte GA-F2A85X-UP4, that's the only board that really fits well with the case of choice. Plus it has a 8 phase VRM, so it's a monster for overclocking.
