Which one is better, and WHY?

Thanks in advance!

Well, unfortunately we can't. The budget isn't really big so we have these 2 options.

According to this database the MSI board is to be avoided and the Gigabyte board needs aftermarket cooling.

Enzotech makes VRM coolers that will fit. Also a fan blowing on them will help a lot.

From looking at the pictures it looks like something like a Thermalright HR-09U might fit the MSI board. Maybe.

Well due to some problems with potential BIOS update, we decided to pick Gigabyte 970A-UD3 smile.gif
