I can put any sized MB in my rig and i don't want to crossfire. Is there any reason not to get this instead of its bigger and more expensive brother.

Even if you decide for SLI/CF then this board will be better than many cheaper full ATX size as it has 8+8+4 pcie , not like other 8+4+4. Just that last slot is working as pcie 2.0 but who cares .

I went through the same thought process as well. Never bought a mATX motherboard but this thing is just DAMN sweet. Powerful, lots of feature, perfect for my needs and the one GTX 670 I plan to run. I'm just a gamer and do blu-ray rips...so this thing is perfect for me.
