Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD3H ATX LGA1150 vs. MSI Z87 G45 GAMING

Hey guys, I was wondering, for gaming purposes which motherboard would be better, the one linked in my build below, or...

http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00D12OBEU

Now purpose is solely for gaming. My friend found this one and we were both wondering. Only difference between both of us is I will be overclocking my CPU and he will not be overclocking his CPU, he will be getting the intel i5-4670.

Thanks :)!

  1. more power phase design is better for overclocking
  2. Sorry, what do you mean by power phase design =s Im a noob to all this lol. Which one here has more ?
  3. Best answer
    Definitely go with the GigaByte, I won't touch MSI for builds, poor QC and support....Rest of the rig looks good, if you have it in the budget, might look for a SSD for OS and Apps for overall performance increase

    i think they have the same power phase.. only the features different,
    Many people says that Gigabyte is better than MSI
  5. Gigabyte Z87X-UD3H hands down, as tradesman1 says.
    VRM temperatures on Z87-G45 gaming are unbearable.
    It lose by a milestone to the Z87X-D3H, although the Z87X-D3H has a less capable VRM.
