  1. What about MSI Z370 Gaming M5? I can spend a little bit more if it will be without any risk and well performing.
  2. That's why I'm trying to buy one without those issues. If it's only VRM I think I will chose the MSI.
  3. In what way is it better than the MSI Carbon? The issue with LLC scares me off as I don't have time for another mobo replacement.
  4. I have watched some reviews and asked on reddit and it seems that Asus mobos have problems with LLC. I know it supposedly has been fixed on some of them, but as I said I want reliability so I think I'm gonna go for MSI Gaming PRO Carbon instead. Is it the best choice assuming that I don't want Asus or ASRock?
  5. I already have the CPU, I'm just changing the mobo. The question is: MSI Gaming PRO Carbon or Asus PRIME Z370-A or Asus ROG STRIX Z370-G?
  6. Well all the mobos are more expensive where I live, the price range was for US prices. Should I get the Prime Z370-A then, or is there something better (similarly priced)?
  7. Around 170$ on PCPartPicker, where I live it's 210$.
  8. What do you mean by lowest possible end z370? I think there are many cheaper mobos than MSI Gaming PRO Carbon. I was also thinking about ASUS ROG Strix Z370-H Gaming, what do you think?
  9. I tried almost all BIOS versions, enabled and disabled XMP after Windows install many times. I used a pendrive to install windows, I don't think anything is wrong with it.
  10. I don't know, when I bought the board the update was already out. Also i think (I'm not sure because it unfreezed after a while) it froze during Windows installation so it wouldn't make sense.
  11. What do you think about MSI Gaming PRO Carbon? It's a little bit more expensive, but if it's good and reliable I'm fine with that.
  12. I've heard that Gigabyte Z370 mobos have some problems, can someone confirmi if it's true?
  13. To be honest I don't care about aesthetics since the PC is under my desk anyway. I just want something well performing and reliable.
  14. Actually upgrading the BIOS made it worse. I've tried almost all versions and it didn't help. Most of them are, but at least where I live some are more expensive.
  15. I bought ASRock Z370 extreme4 for my i7-8700K but had problems with windows freezing when XMP is enabled. After asking at their forum it turns out I'm not alone. I'm returning this mobo and buying a new one. I want something that can overclock well, and is reliable. What would you recommend for the price of ASRock Z370 extreme4? I was thinking about MSI but they have so many mobos and I don't know which one to chose.
