I was looking to get the krait 3x with Nahimic Audio Enhancer but it's priced at 140 AR. It seems that's the only difference with the two boards. Anything I am missing before I pull the trigger on this one instead?
I can't imagine audio Enhancer =$40 more.

The Nahimic audio enhancer sucks. I have the msi m7 and if that is the only difference id get the m5

here are the differences

Why's this board so cheap compared to others? Also do you still get the free rainbow 6 code? It said the promotion ended in March below in motherboard details, but still shows that it's the bundle with free game.

Well, I have the m7 and it works great besides one small problem. It has realteks best audio chip 1150 and it has audio boost 3 which is supposed to be able to drive higher end headphones but for me on my 558's the volume is not going loud enough. Its loud but I have it maxed out.

I'm currently running an a10-7850k at 4.4ghz. Wanting to switch to Intel. I'm hoping this board and the i5-6600k will give me a nice boost with my r9 390 crossfire setup.

Just switched to the msi m7 with i5-6600k it overclocks easy to 4.7ghz.. All you do is turn the knob on the mobo

I also was looking at the Krait 3x, can anybody spot any massive differences between that board and this one?

I did a straight spec comparison between this and the Krait 3x and they appear to be functionally identical, this one just has Rainbow 6 branding on the packaging.

That's basically what I gathered from a Newegg comparison, the only difference I saw was the Nahimic Audio Enhancer which I don't really need or want.

Also, the board you linked has no Optical audio out port. No USB 3.1 (Type A and Type C). Those are just immediate differences I noticed.
