Are the bad reviews customer reviews or professional reviews? As far as motherboards, customer reviews are practically meaningless because people that don't know what they're doing will write a negative review of a motherboard if their PC using that motherboard doesn't boot up when it in reality could be any part causing the problem.

What reviews are concerning you? The TUF series is a proven line used by vendors like Puget Systems and Digital Storm monthly for many builds without issue. The vast majority of users who experience an issue we find are tied into issues with installation or compatibility issue of some type.

Both the MARK 1 and S are really great options. If you are looking for an alternate consider the Z170-A or Z170 PRO GAMING. They are great options as well and they offer the benefit of Auto Tuning if you are considering a K series CPU.

If you have other questions let me know.

Best of luck with your build!

Hi,

Thnaks for the reply.

Would the Sabertooth benefit the i5-6600k cpu the same as the Z170-A and Pro?
