MSI Z170 Gaming Pro Carbon vs Asus Maximus VIII Ranger

Hi everybody,

As the title states I am not sure which motherboard to go for. Both are within my price point in Australia, with the MSI being $259 and the Asus being $279. Any recommendations between the two would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks :)

  1. The MSI Pro Carbon would be more than enough for most people's needs. Unless there's a specific reason you want the Asus Ranger save your money and use it on something else. Both are v advanced boards.

    You could probably get away with a much cheaper board. Depends on your requirements really.
  2. Okay, so there are no particular advantages for either? I'm not sure if you have experience with either of the boards.

    I have experience with MSI and Asus boards, and trust me you wont utilise half the features either board offers if you had to ask this question in the first place. Just get an Asus Pro Gaming or MSI Gaming M3 and save yourself some money.
  4. Okay! Thank you very much, I was planning on originally going with the Asus Z170 Pro Gaming anyway...

    So thanks again! :)
