This motherboard does everything I needed it to do. BIOS is intuitive, and the IO shield is padded for safe and easy installation. As for aesthetics, it looks gorgeous, but don't expect a brilliant light show from it. It's only aesthetic LED is off in the corner and underwhelming.

Overall, great product.

Great board with amazing features for the price you pay. It also looks very nice. The red LEDs are subtle and fit the board very well.

My only beef here is the 2 USB 2.0 headers. I would like to have a third but it's not essential.

MOTHERBOARD This.. is HANDS DOWN my most favorite part of my PC. I LOVE this motherboard. The dark colored design of the panels, and the I/O shield has a nice padding on the back, and the I/O has nice plastic covers on the inside part of the MOBO. This also has 2 M.2 slots, which was NICE because I was able to take my SAMSUNG 960 Evo out of my Laptop (MSI Leopard Pro G72) and not have to worry about an OS. This board also comes with red LED lights along the left side near the Audio boost chip which gives it a nice accent on the inside if you don't have much LED's. I have a few in mine so they dont show up very much. I will include a picture. However I CANNOT say enough good things about this slick MOBO. Everything about it fit what I needed. Will definitely Buy from MSI from now on.

Motherboard is perfect all you need for decent gaming has all over clock/gaming settings.

Used this instead of the B250 Pro Carbon Mobo from MSI, because I wanted to overclock. MSI Command Center and the bios for this motherboard have a game boost mode which is pretty good its just a click of a button and you get a lot more out of your CPU.
