Which X99 mATX motherboard?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Budget is £200 so that leaves me with the EVGA X99 Micro2 or Gigabyte X99M Gaming 5. I'll be pairing the mobo with a 5820K

I don't really like the colour scheme on the ASRock X99M Extreme4.

Haven't had personal experience with either board, but going off previous experience with both companies I would choose the evga hands down.

Gigabyte X99 BIOS is to this day a little finicky, I have a X99 UD5 and had little annoyances with it. I plan to reduce my PC's footprint and I think I'll get the EVGA Micro2, or maybe ASUS WS-M, arrrrrrgh, I don't know yet either biggrin.gif , but between Gigabyte and EVGA, I would go for the Micro2.

I'm actually thinking about getting the Asus X99-M WS if I can get a good deal on it so it's closer to £200 than £250.

I've already decided on the case, the Corsair Air 240 biggrin.gif
