This one here: Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 I use it in my main build which you can see here : https://pcpartpicker.com/b/GtRG3C this motherboard has not given me a single problem.
With this case my back fan got in the way a little bit so when I close it I have to make sure it does not pop off since I only use the magnet portion of it and not the tape part.
A better motherboard definitely .
Lol. He would not budge on a little more for something a little better. I wish he didn't want a blue ray drive cause then I could of gotten him something a little better.
It holds up to just about everything.
Really good. I have since upgraded the case to the cooler master mastercase pro 5. I might set up a separate build on here later with all the changes I have made (changed the build on here a million times now lol)
you really don't need a liquid cooler for it cause my cpu runs just fine. I average about 30c on idle and 40-50c (depending on what application im running at the time) while under load. but everyone has there temps they like to stay at so its up to you.
update your drivers for your graphics card see if that works
