Hi Guys do you think I should go with MSI Z170a Gaming 5 or MSI Z170a Gaming Pro CARBON RGB? Any thoughts?

The MSI Gaming M5 (and its G45-Gaming new iteration) probably will OC a bit better but it should be pretty small and the Pro Carbon has an appealing all black PCB with a bit of RGB lighting.

Pick the one you like the most.

Thanks, I'm going on a Red black build and do a minimal OC on the CPU, so should I get the carbon?

if you want yes.

For red and black, the MSI Tomahawk has a similar color scheme but also includes wifi & bluetooth chips if this is something that could interest you.

Well I own a Phantom 530 which is roughly the same as the noctis but no PSU shroud and I use my front 200mm fan and my top H100iGTX as intakes and use the back as an exhaust and also placed 2 120mm fans at the bottom to serve as exhausts.

The last 2 were recently added and it helped drop a few degrees in temps around the bottom of the case for my PSU and GPU.

I see, so in my case, 3 front intake, h110i 2 fan (TOP) intake also and just 1 rear exhaust
