    from completed build Razer Skylake build

    Although I haven't used the software yet, the hardware is top of the line. I'm not a fan of the black and red styling, although it's what's expected of msi. It was easy to mod the board colours to black, which was helpful. The red ddr4 trace lines printed on the board look cool but are red :( So until I figure out how to colour or remove them I'm stuck. The inclusion of an on board sound card and the wireless capability really sold this board for me, not to mention the other numerous functions like the easy overclock dial and the great software. The mobo armour on the back is a big plus too.
