I just got my 8700k. I ordered an ASRock mobo. I think MSI, ASUS, and ASrock are all great options. Let me know what motherboard you end up with. Curious to see personal feedback regarding any MSI z370 motherboards (building a second system with i3).

I can't comment on that specific board, however every MSI board I have owned they have been rock solid (touch wood).

Benchmark Scores Faster than most of you! Bet on it! :)
It should be just fine like 90% of boards. What are you putting in it? 8700k? That information is helpful. :)
