This motherboard is great. The BIOS is incredibly easy to navigate, and the the theme is gorgeous. The 3X version ensures that the SATA ports are faced sideways, as opposed to earlier versions where they were up and down. This means if you use a second GPU then the ports don't get blocked. I love this motherboard and highly recommend it.
Great Mobo and looks even better in the case. POSTed on first try. BIOS seems pretty simple as well. FINALLY something from MSI that ins't red. I won't lie, when you are shopping for this mobo online, it doesn't seem like the #1 choice. In fact it looks super janky online. When you get it in your hands, you truly see how well built this motherboard is. It is a real tank, especially since I may have been a bit rough on it putting it the case on the standoffs.
The only real con I would say is that installing any PSU headers were either hard to put in, or did not feel secure. But they all were in the end.
Also, I didn't order the R6 version from Amazon. I just ordered the normal one, but thats the one I got. Not complaining, I got a free game!
I could not decided between this or the Asus z170-a. It literally took me about 2 weeks to finally decide with the help of the krait going on sale. Have to say, no complaints and I love the aesthetics. The UEFI was super easy to use and navigate and allows super easy overclocks and XMP profiles.
No problems yet and easy to work with.
Not the best Z170A motherboard out there, but it fits my color scheme and surprisingly overclocked my chip well. Had a few hiccups when I first got it which was the drivers fault, but everything has been smooth sailing since
I LOVE this Motherboard! It looks great, overclocks great, has metal reinforced pci-e brackets, has USB 3.1 type A and C, and many other things! All in all a great board!
?k motherboard.Some weird sata but you can work around it.
A nice looking mother board that also worked really well for my monochrome build. The BIOS have been fairly easy to navigate so far.
Again, all we need and bios super easy to navigate. Good oc options.
The board is black and white and reviews are pretty good.
