need some msi mobo info z87 - Page 2

post #11 of 14
I am getting this board. I cancelled my order for the G1 Sniper 5. Honestly Haswell has so little headroom for overclocking and you will hit that thermal threshold with even the cheapest motherboards. This time around, just look for features you need. I'm getting this board because this is probably the best board for 3-way graphics without getting the $400 flagships.

yea, for 3-way i woudl have stuck with the sniper 5, its audio is also much better than anything else on a motherboard. but yea its cost is more than double so you need to weigh what you want.

You are welcome, it is a decent board, are you a gamer, is that why you are looking into gaming boards? Or you just like the NIC or audio or somthing?
