Corsair Obsidian 250D Club - Page 47

post #461 of 3057
I have a dilemma on my hands. Which motherboard should I choose to go along with my case? Should I go with the MSI Z87I GAMING AC or the ASUS MAXIMUS VI IMPACT? No matter which I get, it will be swapped out around June for a Z97. Perhaps I should go for something in the middle like the IMPACT but as a "Open Box" so as to cut down on cost (knowing I will only use it for 3~ months)?

NONE OF THE ABOVE XD

go for gigabyte one. I had the same msi mobo you want and once i flashed and bricked bios by upgrading it with producent software, when i rma the mobo shop technican found factory bent pins on cpu socket. Second time i also flashed bios by... switichng the wifi pci-e card, totally bios unrelated stuff and did flash. Also ocing on them isnt that good as they say.

asus one will be a big struggle to mount in as you already have h100 inside. it probably wont fit.

Also I think everyone with large GPU like mine will need these PCI Angle connectors to make it work. You can buy them here in 8-pin or 6-Pin

Your link goes to replacment connectors for the gpu card, male, like on every gpu. I think what you are looking for are rightangled female connectors for the cable

Half the people here have the impact and reviewers say corsair must have thought of the asus boards when designing the case because the h100i sits exactly so that the tubes go between the i/o and the vrm board

But yeah, if you.re only needing a board for 3 month, take either something cheap, or high end if you think it will be easier to resell

Why go z97 at all in mITX? Seems a bit pointless having pcie m.2 ssd support with only one pcie slot which is used by your gpu... Or did i miss something else?

Ugh. Let me tell you. 2014 has been a HORRID year for me when it comes to mother boards. I used to be a huge fan of ASRock but the one thing I have noticed over the years is that they continue to use real bad fan GPIO fan muxing logic that more often than not cause my fans to not start up at all when using Ultra Fast Boot. I then changed it for a GIGABYTE and quickly found out the board was unstable when it had all RAM slots populated. I then got a MAXIMUS VI and, despite being told by TigerDirect otherwise, I got a C1 stepping board that could not OC my 4670K worth a damned over 3.8GHz. What little time I did spend with the ROG was pretty great (OC problem being chalked up to a fluke) but ultimately I can not help but wonder if the grass is greener on the MSI side.



If I ask it is because I have noticed that many of you have the IMPACT but I wonder if that is because the GAMING AC is newer or flat out worse? Perhaps none of the above hu?

That is what I have read as well. However, are the H100 and H100i the same in that respect?

SATA express, no?

Keep in mind that if M.2 / NGFF is really all we get, perhaps ASUS will update the ROG lineup for all form factors but mITX? It is that indecisiveness that is driving me up the wall. As mentioned before; I have had some real bad luck with boards this year so please forgive my fence sitting. At this point I just want to put this thing together and be done with it for some time to come.

and keep in mind, the Impact already has PCIe M.2 support on its module, not as fast as the z97, but it's there if you want that feature

Anybody else having issues finding a 250D in the US? From amazon to new egg and even corsair's website, they are all out of stock.

Yepp. Fry's, Amazon, B&H, NewEgg - all out of stock. I got mine from NCIX US as they still had a few in stock. Better hurry as having just said that, I am sure it will sell out quick.
