Any suggestions for a motherboard that cost ranging from 100$ to $200. Z87 chipset.
ATX, mITX, mATX?
The answers are:
ATX - MSI Mpower or Mpower Max
mATX: Asus Maximus VI Gene
mITX: Asus Maximus VI Impact, Z87 Pro I, or EVGA Stinger.
Just ATX. What are the differences of the Mpower and mpower max?
Mpower Max has two 8-pin EPS ports, more USB 3.0 ports via a third-party controller, and I believe a 20* phase power design, which is 4 more phases than the 16 on the Mpower. Very good boards, the both of them.
yeah the Mpower is realy nice ☺ one tip if you go with the msi mpower please download the lan drivers from the killer site. some people complain about the msi lan drivers are a pain. just a tip, but big chance that msi allready fixed that on theire website.. ☺
If you end up with the stupid Killer lan card, you won't be able to connect to Internet in Linux.
