@picketech while it was really cheap i can actually best the price on it with an MSI Gaming 5 z97 board that i got several years so for the huge sum of free after $10 rebate. Yes i paid $10 for it then got that $10 back! Haha
@katsuo every manufacturer has horror stories at some point. I have never had a high end board. It’s far too good for my little i3 in it! Haha I’m most likely going to swap it out for an updated gaming rig. The wife has already given me approval to do custom cables and a new case within a reasonable price range.
