    I would buy an ASrock before a Gigabyte or MSI mobo.

    Those decorative parts on the top of the VRM sinks (and the SB) look to be removable. I would take them off anyway, to me they make the board look cheesy.

    Might be better for the thermals aswell to have the surface of the heatsink more exposed
