I'd suggest changing to ASRock, Asus or GigaByte, I'm not enthralled with their quality and it appears they are again having issues w/ mobos that have gone out with overly tight DRAM slots which are causing lots of problems, they had the same happen when they brought out think it was the Z77 line

Yeah, I think you're right. After i read some review, asrock z77 ext4 is better than msi. Thanks for your answer.

Unless your RAM bars have huge heatsink that's even bigger than Corsair Platinum then tight slots of mainstream MSI boards shouldn't bother you. B75-G43 gaming is an efficient board for any non-OC gaming system ( mostly due to Bigfoot Killer LAN controller ), but since you picked the i5 3570k, I bet you want to do some OC with it, making Z75/Z77 boards more sufficient for your system. At Asrock Z77 E4's price range, we have the MSI Z77A-G45 gaming, which myself consider as a strong candidate to be put into rig.

The tight RAM slots have nothing have Nothing to do with positioning of the slots or size of the heatsinks, it's the interior of the slots where the contacts fit in, preventing a solid contact to contact between slot and stick, which can often result in a boot/shutdown/boot loop or even unexpected shutdowns in the midlle of something

At least name a few MSI boards with that bug. In my country they sell dozens of B75a-G43 a week ( it's like hot cake here due to cheaper price than in the US ) and I haven't seen any complains about that RAM problems.

Was pointing out that there have been a number of complaints about the slots on the new lines as a general observation and that it is the same thing MSI had with the release of their various Z77 family of mobos, which a lot of builders took exception to because it was a known problem, MSI knew it was a known problem, yet if you called support they would tell folks they hadn't heard a thing about it, further they never recalled the boards. It's sort of hard to trust a company that basically intentionally continues selling product they know to be defective...their overall QC in my opinion has continued to decline since even before then and sales have continued to decline...MSI shipped appr 7 million units in 2011, and was down to appr 6 million in 2012, where ASRock went 7.8 and then up to 8, GB did 17 million in 2011 and climbed to about 17.5 million in 2012 taking a fair share from Asus who went about 23.2 in 2011 and declined to about 22.2 in 2012

I see. That's a terrible service in the US there, much worse than in Asia thou. I've always been a fan of their VGA cards, but their boards seem to be problematic these days.

For me it sort of worked out well, before the previous problems I had started using ASRock mobos on a fairly consistent basis along with the other 3, but when the stuff hit the fan with the sockets and having to RMA about 7 MSI mobos within two weeks, Iused the Rock mobos on all those builds and my clients loved them, same features, lower prices....I just sort of dropped them, get to work on one everynow and then and haven't been impressed, had clients buy some and had others build them and they haven't been happy (and also got some DOAs) - to me they just aren't worth the headaches

There you got my computer. Buy a Gtx 660 instead.
