Asus STRIX Z270-E GAMING VS MSI Z270 GAMING M6 AC

Looked at these two boards really like the looks and features of both, Also the wifi but I wanna know if ones better then the other cause maybe one of you guys know something about it.  There pretty much the same price,

ASUS is way better.

MSI has shitty BIOS layout, shitty warranty, shitty customer support, shitty everything. I would recommend ASUS, ASRock and Gigabyte.

I have to say MSI is not as bad as @domandric034 says. They have good BIOS layout and good customer support. It's just a opinion.

I shall round of the features of either motherboard, as for a means of conclusion to which motherboard is 'superior', simplistically:

 

Asus STRIX Z270-E GAMING.

 

Absolutely hand down does that board's features, construction qualities & design simply shred the MSI Z270 GAMING M6 AC. Literally no competition.

 

Also to point a few issues out with MSI's product feature list, one thing I noted was this incredibly peculiar sentence in there promotion for the board:

 

"With a unique look and feel, packed with exclusive gaming features, MSI ENTHUSIAST GAMING motherboards offer the best possible gaming experience."

 

With a unique feel...Whaaaa??

 

I mean, if you so desire of it the MSI board actually features an innovative Turbo M.2 cooker.

  

 

 

 

 

 

I once did the unthinkable, back many headphones ago...

I split an audio split, again

I mean this is for my first build but the only thing i see on the msi board that i know i would want is the fan headers but i think i can do something which slitter cables or something

What do you mean 'it's that bad' It looks really solid and has more USB 3.1 ports, 2 more case fan headers, 1 more m.2 port and 1 more PCI-e x16 slot.

You are misleading people by using your opinion instead of the theory

If you desire to hate MSI even further, compare the two overviews:

 

https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/Z97S-SLI-Krait-Edition.html#hero-overview

 

https://www.asus.com/uk/Motherboards/Z97A/

 

I think I would prefer the ASUS motherboard over free bloat ware xD

I've got 4 broken motherboards out of the box and 7 dead gpu's out of the box and you call that solid. Re think about your existence.

Here is the list : 

4 dead mobos out of the box. I will give you list of chipsets cause I don't remember the models :

1. Hudson A75 (Owned and RMA'd with GA-A75M-UD2H)

2. 990FX (My brother built himself PC few years ago, he was so pissed off with mobo quality and that was dead out of the box)

3. H81 (When I built server for company)

4. Z170 (When I upgraded my rig this year)

 

7 dead GPU out of the box :

1. HD 3650 (Owned)

2. HD 6450 (Owned)

3. R7 260X (Owned)

4. GTX 970 (Owned & RMA'd with R9 390)

5. R9 390 (Owned & RMA'd with GTX 970 again from ASUS this time)

6. GTX 1070 (When I built PC for my friend)

7. GTX 1050 Ti (When I build PC for my girlfriend)
