    All of them will do just fine.

    if i had to choose, it would be the MSI Gaming 5 or Asus Z97 Pro Gamer because those two will give you solid overclocking.

    If i were you i would go with the cheapest one out of those 4 because their abilities will be near identical, overclocking wise.
  2. I have heard about the msi's QC problem is it still going or is it okay to buy the msi board

    I have also read more than a few times on this forum people say pretty much exactly that; avoid MSI motherboards as they have hardware QC problems and their motherboards are particularly suspect etc. I have no personal knowledge nor experience in this at all but I also have read it, just came up in searches I was doing in the last 2 weeks actually. (no idea when the posts were actually written but I Have read it a few times in the past 2 weeks)

    I have a few people who use MSI and are very satisfied with their motherboard, however if this is a concern the Fatal1tyX or pro gamer is an excellent choice.

    Hey brother I meant you no disrespect, nor MSI etc. I just was saying, I read obviously some of the same stuff the gentleman read. But I have no personal experience and to be honest i hope to buy a new MSI graphics card soon so it's not like I won't buy their stuff etc.

    No worries, i felt no hostility or disrespect at all, it's good to share knowledge especially to the OP since he is thinking of purchasing a motherboard.

    There will be no performance difference at all. They are both excellent quality motherboards with excellent brands that have good customer service.

    I would personally choose the MSI because of the outstanding aesthetics and i've had good experience with MSI.
