Help me Select a Motherboard

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Currently set on purchasing either an i5 6600k or i7 6700k and need a motherboard to pair up with the CPU. I have narrowed it down to the following three motherboards. Really just looking for everyone to weigh in (yes I will be OC'ing). No SLI.

I've been contemplating a z170 build and the mobo I like is the Gigabyte Gaming 7.

2 m.2 x4 slots so no need for a card if you want to raid.

Thunderbolt 3 on back io.

Reinforced pcie slots.

Upgradeable audio amp. Really want to play with this, you can get alternate sound chips for a few bucks.

Dual dac up usb 2.0.

Dual ethernet.

Serious heatsinks.

Mass Effect style aesthetics aren't terrible.

Sub $200, not much more than the boards you've picked out.
