I saw a msi i liked (MSI MSI Gaming Z170A GAMING M5 LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX Intel Motherboard - Newegg.com). It had everything i really needed.

This one goes great with my white/black theme and is saving me some cash. just a lil hesitant on the reviews. MSI MSI Gaming Z170A KRAIT GAMING LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX Intel Motherboard - Newegg.com
prob leaning towards the gigabyte or msi now.
Did you actually read the reviews? This is why I tell everybody to simply flat out ignore the reviews that are put on Newegg. 90% of the people bitched about not having 90 degree SATA ports. Um, it shows right on the pictures that they aren't 90 degree ports.....so why'd you ****ING BUY IT??!!

Asus is pretty **** too. If my WS board ever dies I'm just tossing it in the trash.

Now if you want to read some stories on Gigabyte, here's a thread for you.
