made some really good points. I would kinda disagree on the MB OC buttons being close to gimmick. Its there for those who actually need them(I also didn't use
Last but not least, afaik besaides the OC sockets stuff, I havent seen a motherboard(at I havent read anything so far) achieving for example 100-200Mhz OC than the rest, lower voltages etc.
There are some variation ofc since build/components quality varies, but all in all in the your best bet is to choose at least a trouble free motherboard that fits your bill, has the features you need/want and you like it.
Any good quality X99 MB will get the most out of your CPU/Hardware. P.S:
Small side note: For those who are updating the bios and come across the "File not found" when trying to update/flash the new bios, don't forget there's a small procedure to be done.
For updating the bios from a USB. It MUST
be bootable and FAT32. At least that worked for me.1)
Download the bios(.zip format from the MSI Support website)2)
Extract them somewhere of your preference if you wish(e.g Desktop)3)
Download RUFUS (current ver 2.4) and slect quick format it to FAT32 and make bootable with "FreeDOS".4)
After its complete copy paste the 3 files that were in the bios .zip file to the USB. Do not create any folders.5)
Reboot and choose M-Flash and select Update BIOS and ME and it will restart automatically and will start updating.Edited by Koniakki - 10/3/15 at 5:19pm
