X99 Mobo for Xeon E5-1660 v3

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm going to get a Xeon E5-1660 V3 and i have few options for mobo. Asrock Fatal1ty X99X Killer (246€), MSI X99A Mpower (252€), MSI X99A Gaming 7 (264€) or Asrock Fatal1ty X99X Killer USB 3.1 (270€). My requirements for mobo are ATX form factor, DR. Debug, red/black/(yellow) theme and a good mic output. My absolute max budget is 270€.


I'm Linus too. (:

Also good overclocking would be nice because that cpu is unlocked.

it's not unlocked, get the 5930k (i7 version of the E5-1660 V3) or the 5820k
