Got a doa MSI Z68, What is a viable alternative? Tags: Motherboards Overclocking MSI Last response: April 8, 2012 3:11 AM in Motherboards Share chaosgs April 8, 2012 2:37:51 AM So my msi board, has over 20 bugs. Newegg made an exception (god I love those guys), to make a full refund and allow me to buy a different model. I cant tell what I should get. Overclocking will be moderate but only when needed, like skyrim. I know the Z77 boards come out tomorrow. But cant make up my mind to wait or get a Asus/Asrock mobo. Why is there a $60 difference between these 2 mobos, when the only difference is a GUI bios. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
