  1. The Maximus is a waste of money, you can get 99% of the features in cheaper mobos. Go for the MSI one, Don't knw abt the fan hub connector, it should have one.
  2. thanks for the quick reply.will MSI one do the best? :)

    I would also suggest a Seagate HDD as WD Black series has high failure rates. Seagate performs better in my experience. No graphics card?
  6. Well, you are only saving $13 with the MSI M7 over the Hero! Whether deserved or not, MSI MB's don't have the best reputation for quality control.

    Read these reviews and see what you think. Steven Bassiri didn't review the M7, but did review the higher priced M9:

    Radelf_Gamer, you should also look at the Ranger which is very similar to the Hero but with 2 less SATA ports and no fancy LED lighting.
  7. I would and did go the Hero and wouldn't change it, it's taken all I've thrown at it and never blinked, and I throw a lot more at rigs than most people, constantly testing components and configs. I've run numerous GPUs up to and including XFire with 290Xs, 980s in SLI (current 980Ti), half a dozen different CPU cooler, numerous sets of DRAM. It has a great BIOS, runs cool, OCs well, no complaints at all ;)
  8. what about the z170 gaming G1 or Asus Deluxe? ill use Gigabyte gtx 980ti xtream edition
  9. Best answer
    As I remember, the Asus Deluxe is for extreme overclocking. Here is a comparison of the Asus boards. Generally, the VRM quality increases the higher the price.

    Gigabyte makes some quality boards too. Here is the review on the Gaming G1:
