My advice is to be cautious and not to buy a motherboard before finding out how it behaves using the new TR2 series. 16 phases on the MSI motherboard could very well be a waste which is payed for by the user that will never get any benefit of, if the CPU doesn't need that much power. Anandtech have a review of the MSI motherboard and they do point out that the boot time of the MSI is very long compared to other motherboards, so there are issues, could be fixed with later BIOS or may not be fixable.
