Thanks a lot man. I appreciate your help.
Ok so after looking into MSI mother boards a bit more, I have noticed more people on different boards saying they stay far away from MSI motherboards. So after all is said and done.

So I swap the H50 for the 212 hyper cooler and the MSI mobo for the ASUS hero. I do like the idea of more SATA ports for future use if I decide to get into something else. So this is my potential future rig. Anything thing else?
