Question Substitute/Upgrade to the MSI X99S Gaming 9 ACK Motherboard


Jun 17, 2013
Recently my MSI X99S Gaming 9 ACK motherboard was not working due to a loose pin on the CPU slot, which was repaired and working as per Required substitute for MB and CPU post.
But i am sure that wont sustain long enough so was looking forward for suggestions/recommendation to substitute/upgrade to a different motherboard which will be compatible with the rest of the components.

Have shortlisted 2 ASUS motherboards. please let me know which one will be a best fit
1. ASUS Rampage V Edition 10
2. ASUS ROG Strix X99 Gaming
