Would change out the mobo, neither I nor the builders I know will touch MSI due to poor QC issues, have been three new threads today on this mobo with non-working ethernet ports...Might look at the Asus Z87-Plus or the Z87-A,,maybe even move up to a Gryphon

Looks good the Asus Z87-A is a very good entry level mobo, OCs well, handles DRAM well, should be happy with it, rest looks great, good buy on the 7970, that's a great GPU
