    Good run of the mill Z170 board. Lacks m.2 port for SSD's which was a little bit of a bummer. 6 USB ports is a plus though. The ambient red LED's can also be turned off if your build isn't red. Pretty much the only color neutral mATX motherboard, just wish it was about $20 cheaper regular price.

    Has enough I/O ports to satisfy 90% of users. No USB-C port, which might be a turnoff for some. I might probably want it in the future, but for now it's good.

    Cheap, z170 platform, stable, and has a good feature set. Better than the train wreck that was Asrock's AMD software. It also can hold very nice OCs without the VRMS getting too toasty.

    I saw this mobo on a 'weekly sales' list, and I immediately fell in love with it. I've never had an MSI product before, but I didn't hear any specific bad about it either. So there wasn't too much to think about. The BIOS menu is heaven compared to those old, blue 8-bit designed dull ones. Everything's easy to find, easy to handle. And the software support is just awesome. I remember I had to deal with every single driver, bios update repeatedly. Hate it. Now it's just one click, and everything's taken care of. Including the bios update. I'm sorry, I'm just sold.

    A fair priced Z mobo which has almost everything I need. Only downside is that there is only one JUSB1 port so i had to use it for the AIO and not for the front USB 2.0 ports.

    Cheap, z170 platform, stable, and has a good feature set. I do have a problem with a red LED just over the first PCIe slot(which I know isn't just for aesthetics for the specific LED in question). Also the separated audio PCB LED doesn't work. Still a great board though.

    Great Motherboard especially for the price. NOT immediately compatible with 7th gen intel cpu's, will require BIOS update.

    Fantastic for my needs. Only issue I had was that it only has three fan headers, but oh well.

    Update: Definitely should've gone with another board, I'd love to add an m.2 ssd to my build but unfortunately this board doesn't have the proper support. But alas that is my fault for not researching thoroughly enough.
