    Nice review! Glad MSI is getting noticed once again. I own the MSI Z170A Gaming M9 ACK mobo and love it. It's one solid mobo and handles everything I throw at it. But this MSI Z170A XPOWER GAMING TITANIUM EDITION sure has my attention. You guy's should do a review on the MSI Z170A Gaming M9 ACK...

    What Z170 Board do you plan to use?

    For me it I picked up the MSI Z170A GAMING M9 ACK. Going to give it shot. My build is just under way as my parts started shipping out last week. I'm not sure how this board is going to be. I like what it offers. Love this feature "Keeping your system cool in the heat of battle, the heatsink...

    Will R9 280X CrossFire with 7970 GHz Edition? Yes - Complete Success

    That's what I love to hear and see. XFire a 7970 with the new 280x! That's just bad ass. I love it! Thanks for the awesome news. I just picked up a new 7970 so I'm in luck. Then I might add a QNIX screen to run it. Still thinking about that one. It might happen. Not sure yet!

    Is this AMD 7970 a good card?

    Just got my card in last night after I had to replace my mobo! I have it clocked at 1025core/ 1325memory and it's kicks some serious ass. And it's so damn quiet. So far, so good!

    Is this AMD 7970 a good card?

    I ended up ordering it on Saturday and was wondering if anyone here at this forum owns one and how does it perform for you? I can only take the customer reviews at New Egg so far. I want some in depth information on it. Thank you! HIS IceQ X² H797QM3G2M Radeon HD 7970 3GB

    Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP5 dead already?

    So what did you do to fix your issue? Did you replace your flaky PSU with a new PSU? Just know I haven't had a single issue at all! My mobo boots up fast! And it overclocks excellent! :cool:

    Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP5 dead already?

    On a side note: If this board makes through my one month of torture tests which I believe it will. So far it's survived some burn runs and P95! I have to say this board is solid and overclocks easy. Great board and I'm glad I own it!

    Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP5 dead already?

    Got my Gigabyte put in last night. I love it. The only thing I do not like about this board is the placement of the USB 2.0 internal ports. Only two on in between the TMP and the sysfan 4! I would have liked to see another USB 2.0 port there making it 3 instead of 2. Bad placement IMO.That's the...
