True but then every cooling setup is different, air flow may effect an air cooled system more for example smile.gif anyway off topic lol

Gigabye gaming 5, MSI Pro Carbon, or Asus Strix-F? All same price with an 8600k, what would you pick?

Just wanted to stop by and thank everyone for the discussions in this thread. Spent a few weeks researching mobos, vrms, and overclocking potential. I had settled on the Maximus X Hero until AlphaC turned me into the fact that the Gaming 7 was on-par with the Hero. Was back and forth between the two for the past week, but I just nabbed the Gaming 7 for $135 less than the Hero, so I've made my choice rolleyes.gif

My next adventure is working up the nerve to delid my 8700k so I can push the cpu and mobo to their limits.

Good news guys. I just changed the motherboard to a gigabyte aorus gaming 5 with 47.5 more euro. The supplier hasn't the taichi so I stick to the gaming 5. I think I will love this motherboard. I love the rgb lighting it has wifi/BT that I definitely will use and good vrms for OC my 8700k to 4.8 for just gaming.

Last night I was sad now I am happy. Also I think to make the h60 push pull with an additional fan so I am OK with that too.
Also the case was the simple s340 but the s340 elite with full tempered glass with plenty of space. It will be an amazing setup with my rgb motospeed v30 and the mechanical keyboard. Thanks you for put me in the right directions. Also 3 years warranty and 20 euro to steam wallet.

I've always found ASRock to be solid boards, they do the job well and aren't too flashy.

Same here and a much better UEFI than Gigabyte at least in the past.
