Ok this was based on other pcpartpicker models for decent low level mobo's. I actually try and stay away from MSI due to some issue with my 970 2 years ago in my other build (3 replacements later) but it was priced right so that won out.
Live Update 6 - installed all drivers i needed and let me flash bios from windows. super cool making it much easier to have to get drivers individually.
1 CPU fan and one sysfan.. should have paid attention to that.. the case has 2 fans included (and i don't want one running @ 100% all the time)
The stock CPU fan hits on capacitors (i don't know what to call them) - making it really difficult to get a nice fit on the twist in screws to the mobo. It actually felt like i kinda had to bend it slightly to get it to finally pressure set in the screw.
Great motherboard for those who don't want or need all the bells and whistles of an expensive Z170 or H170 board!
A no frills motherboard with an easy to navigate bios for skylake CPUs. It unfortunately has one case fan header and only 2 ram slots, but is not really a problem for me.
