3rd Checkup on build.

Alright, I need help one more time on this. I was looking around and uh.

I'm not sure what Motherboard to get or what can be recommended due to performance prize or not.

MSI or Asus?

I don't plan on OC, I assume what I have is more than enough to run games fine.

But still, I'm doing it slowly. I already have the case, got the CPU and the Power Supply.

Feel free to edit the Motherboard into what you think works best. I read Z series can be used to OC, if so. Would I really need one? I dont have an unlocked CPU.

Educate me, and thanks for the help.

You do not need a Z series motherboard but I assume you still want a nice looking board since the case has a window on it. I picked a motherboard with a black/red theme on the H170 platform and it is about $60 cheaper.

I dont mind the looks as much you think. I rather go for reliability right now. I just want to know if it's worth it or not. Since i'm not OC I assume I do not a Z series for that very reason.

I'll give this a check and if I like it. I'll take it. Thanks though, i'm also checking the support on the Memory.

The H170 motherboards only support DDR4-2133 memory.

Alright, I know what to look for then. Thanks guys. Time to finish this.

If you're not going to overclock you could save about 100 bucks going to a b150 board and 2133 ram.

Im planning too. I dont think i'll need to. It's just a gaming PC and this seems about right.
