What Z87 MB for 4770K - Page 3

post #21 of 29
I had a Z87X-OC, bios really turned me off was a pain in the ass to change anything, that plus I got a defective board really made me upset. Just got back from driving for a couple hours to microcenter and I got a z87-Plus by asus and I am loving it already.

Intel also has software called cFOS which supports that application prioritization and such, but no one really uses it. In the end they are about equal, but for me and many other users with the Killer we disable the application control as it tends to cause more harm than good, sadly that is what people buy it for, the app control. But anyway yea it isn't a bad nice, but a lot prefer Intel. Qualcomm owns Atheros, but no one really likes Atheros NICs. lol

ZealotKiller-Good luck with your GD65!

Why is the chip smaller on z87 sniper boards than on z87 msi gaming boards?

Sniper 5 has two NICs, one is an Intel the other is the Killer, they are the same size Killer chips. The Sniper m5 this time has intel this time instead of Killer. Mastahg, you had a defective board, it isn't comparable to having one which isn't, who knows what else that could have affected with your DIMMs being all messed up, it sucks about your experience tho, i would be a bit ticked off too.

According to the spec page, the m5 comes with the killer nic but i think you misunderstood my question. The MSI killer nics 2205 are bigger sized than the Gigabyte Sniper's killer nics 2201.

What does the size of the chip matter? You just pointed out they are different, a 2201 and 2205, a larger or smaller chip shouldn't be a surprise.

oh yea I noticed they have a last different digit, i guess they changed the M5 to the killer, interesting i didn't catch that, i just figured it was Intel. On the M3 it was Intel and i guess M5 is killer. M5 is the one board I don't have yet. I don't know the difference I tried to look it up, there is a slight difference in size, the MSI's is a bit bigger. I have no idea why, i will ask Killer as I had dealings with them in the past relating to the FIOS issue which they said was FIOS's fault which IDk how that can be.

I have the cFOS program thumb.gif
http://www.cfos.de/en/cfosspeed/cfosspeed.htm

Software will :
-Keep your internet fast during heavy upload/download
-Improve your Ping for online games
-Reduce audio/video streaming problems

You need to have Realtec RTL 8111E on your motherboard.
