Either. Z170A SLI is fine though. You can get it cheaper than that, no need to pay so much for it. Chnage the PSU to EVGA 650W GQ/GS, like I said. That case is a terrible choice, do not get it. That cooler is also a terrible choice.

The Gaming M5 has a bit stronger VRM

Don't get the C7 Cooler that one is complete garbage get an M9i or an H7 Or an H5/R1

Change the PSU also.

What is the problem with the case? Someone else on here recommended it to me. I'll probably return the PSU and exchange it for the EVGA, but returning a case is a pain in the ***. What cases do you recommend?

Case is expensive and imo its kinda ugly looks like they wanted to make alienware themed case its not bad performancewise. Airflow is prob decent.

IMO these white cases look much better.

I thought you were implying the case was defective in some way, I just prefer a standard black PC, nothing fancy, hate the flashy cases.
