I'm just not quite sure to be able to know which version of the BIOS these motherboards will ship with... Is there any way to find out with production date or something else?
Thanks a lot again you are awesome!
No problem! EVGA and MSI are both great brands, but as far as I know, there is no real way of determining what BIOS version the motherboard will ship with. You could always email NCIX and ask though, I'm sure they would be more than happy to help you. Other than that, the only motherboard I can really recommend to you from either MSI or EVGA that would almost guarantee you get a good BIOS, would be the MSI X99A Pro Gaming Carbon
, as it is newly released and has only ever had one BIOS update
so far. That being said though, that motherboard looks to be about $100 CAD over your budget. I would definitely recommend you start by asking NCIX first before you jump for the X99A Pro Gaming Carbon.
