MSI Mpower VS ASUS MAXIMUS IV HERO 6!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello guys, i hope you are doing well!
I am planing to get a new mob for an i7 4770k, seasonic 850w gold and Evga gtx 780 acx, and i was wondering wich of these mob is the best for me? And no worries guys, i am not looking for crazy OC at least for the first 2 years and maybe a SLI in the future. So here are the boards: (its my first build)

Msi mpower z87 (not max)
Asus maximus iv hero 6
Msi z87-gd65
Gigabyte z87x-ud4h

And if possible could you tell me the actual difference, not the marketing features!
Thanks!! smile.gif

Gigabyte Z87X - OC and Asus Maximus VI Hero are very good choices for "crazy" overclocking. They are using excellent VRMs (60A inductors etc). However, because of not planning crazy OC, you can buy Z87X- UD3H. UD4H and UD3H are using same VRMs, but UD4H has a doubler, so it has 16 phase. In both, true phase count is same (8). You can buy which is cheaper. Also, UD3H can provides you to do "crazy OC".

Great review for UD3H:
