Which MB should I keep for my SB build.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ok so here's the deal. I bought a Asus Sabertooth P67 but it was backordered at the time. The next day the MSI p67a-gd65 came in stock at newegg so I went ahead and ordered it. 2 weeks later the Asus board comes in.

Now I have already built the PC, but I am changing my cooler from the Hyper N520 to a Corsair H70 so I will probably pull the MSI board out to do that. So which MB do you guys and gals think I should keep.

Here is the rest of my system as well:

Core i7 2600k
Corsair Vengeance 8gb
Corsair 750TX PSU
EVGA GTX 570
Samsung Spinpoint F3
CM Storm Sniper Black case

The Sabertooth is better in my opinion... It depends a bit on the purchase price difference between the two to an extent. I'd lean toward keeping the Sabertooth though.

Just a little update.

I decided to keep the ASUS, and I have been more than happy with it so far. Overclocking has been a little bit easier. I've gotten it up to 4.5 ghz with max temps hanging in the mids 50'5 and occasionally hitting over 60. First time builder and oc'er so I appreciate the advice on the better board.
