no stay with the MSi G45...http://www.msi.com/product/mb/Z77A-G45.html#/?div=Detail
I just did a build with this board.
it does everything the more expensive ASRock board does with the same VRM strength 8+4 or possibly a 12+4, not certain which one.
also runs x8/x8 dual GPU's.
I love the military class components and sleek professional but savage look.
clocked a 3570K @ 4.4GHz with an Antec 620 H2O cooler.
BIOS easy and I didn't need to update it.
just my opinion but I like it and would run one for myself.
