Replace for MSI 890gxm g65

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
hello! i purchased a MSI 890gxm-g65 before reading reviews from here, adn found out it could burst into flames. well, recently, it crapped out on me (different reason.) And i am looking to replace that board. it seems the "vrm cooler" on it doesnt even touch the vrms after close examination! anyway, i found this board http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128445 and was wondering if it was better. it has 4+1 power phase, but nothing obstructing it from airflow. it is also from a dif. manufacturer, and has 8 pin CPU power.
PS the board needs to be microatx.

Being Gigabyte, definitely much better than MSI first of all. VRMs should be good for 125W CPUs at stock, and I recommend adding mosfet cooling for moderate overclocks 1.5V & below. triangle's suggestion is okay, but I prefer Gigabyte. $100 is a hefty lot for an mATX board. If you're not going to be using USB3 or SATAIII, get 880GM-UD2H
