My experience is similar to yours. Made the 13 hour round trip to micro center in Kansas city saturday for a MSI Carbon Pro Mobo. Had everything ready for new build except the mobo so reserved the carbon pro on micro centers website, loaded up the dog and wife and we were on our way. Got the system put together last night, Booted up no issues. Didnt have time to mess with many settings and still have cable management/loop instillation left. I have a ch6 coming in today, but Im gonna sit that board to the side for now and just run the pro carbon because it doesnt seam to be having many issues unlike the ch6. My board it fully booting 10 seconds or less
you on stock bios or have you updated it?
