There’s nothing worse than trying to trouble shoot a faulty MOBO, I wish companies like MSI would offer that 24 hour burn in on ALL models for an additional charge.
I’d pay it just to mostly eliminate the RMA process.

If you do upgrade just the CPU all your left with now is a useless hunk of silicon sitting in a box that most people won’t touch (Craig’s List) because it’s “used”.
