Great Motherboard. I was going to get a Z170 but they said there would be BIOS update issues with the Kaby Lake cards. Great Mobo..

I didn't necessarily need this high-end of a motherboard since my CPU isn't the k-model, but I got it for a good price and I like the look of these boards.

The board works fine, but the software and drivers were/are a pain to get and use.

The only real reason this doesn't get a higher rating is that the RGB is lackluster and kind of a pain to get working at first. All in all though a reasonable price and strong performance from a brand that you can trust.

I love MSI so this may be biased, but this a great looking motherboard with an easy to understand bios (especially since I'm new to overclocking), and the little rgb looks cool under my gpu. Everything's working perfectly so far so no complaints.
