MSI Z87-G45 Gaming Mobo

this is one of the best mobo for 4770k, it offers features that's usually found on other boards that cost $100-$150 more

not really, it offers features pretty much standard for its price range, along with a NIC that lots of people have issues with.

Not to mention the tacky-as-f*** dragon on the chipset heatsink.


The Asrock Z87 Extreme4 is a good value, IMO. Not the flashiest board but it offers good features for its price, including HDMI input which I think is great. I think I heard some people have had UEFI issues that required an update but I can't remember for sure. I never had issues.


look at the features again..all the youtube pro reviewers all say this board offers features that's double it's price, same with the g65 model

the board came out june/july..it's november now, prices will drop more

Eh. I just went ahead and ordered an Asus Z87-Plus. NCIX had a combo deal going where the i7 was only $309. $480 after insurance.

and the MSI Z87-G45 overclocks the worst out of all of them.

i'm using 4770k @ 4.6ghz..the board uses good cooling and parts (military grade 4), and it's the same chipset as the other boards (z87)..so it's not that bad

I also own a MSI G-45 with a 4770k and it has worked great for the few months I have owned it. @4.2ghz

I'm looking at them now and I'm failing to see what it offers that the other boards don't other than the Killer NIC. It does have a good number of PCIe x1 slots.
