Default Motherboard Suggestions...

I'm ordering a new SB rig tonight and am currently tossed up between MSI and Asus Z68 GEN3 boards but if someone else has a different suggestion SPEAK UP!!!!

Final Build:

Case - I'm going to see how I like the new stuff in the trusty old Antec 900. If it just doesn't suit me anymore I'm grabbing a Corsair 800D

Power Supply - Keeping my Thermal Take 850w Black Widow. It's been rock solid

Sound Card - X-Fi PCI-E

Video Cards - 2x GTX570 2560MB

CPU - 2500k

CPU Cooler - Zalman CNPS9900MAX-B

Memory - 8GB G.Skill 1600 (even though in a 64bit environment 4GB is a bit faster)

Motherboard -


MSI MPower Z87 | 4770k | CNPS9900MAX-B | 8GB G.Skill 1866 | EVGA GTX760 |ThermalTake 850w | X-Fi Titanium | HAF | Asus PA248Q | Lycosa | Death Adder | Win8 Pro 64


MSI GD65 | 2500k | H50 | 8GB G.skill | GTX570 | Ubuntu 13.10


17" Inspiron | i5 | 4GB DDR3 | 500GB HDD | Win7 Pro 64
