MSI and their drivers are not always up to date. I have problems with software they included with the board, and stuff off the internet. For example, MSI Mystic Light. I first thought it was a separate program, but I was not able to find it anywhere. So, with some painful digging around MSI's terribly designed website (I have to use google to navigate to pages, seriously?) I figured out that it was part of MSI's gaming app. Great. Sounds like bloatware, right? Well, the advertised RGB controllable chipset lighting never showed up in the RGB control section, and for some really strange reason, I had to run it logged in to the admin user on windows, even after doing "run as administrator" on a standard account. Then, the version of CPU-Z never worked because of an driver issue, but I installed MSI Sync, which is some driver updater on the CD I received, so all drivers should be fine. Plus, it was an MSI skinned version of CPU-Z, so I expected it to somehow work better on my PC. Then, there is audio. I made sure I installed the right drivers off that software that MSI gave me, and it was incredibly pathetic audio. If your website claims to have "AUDIO BOOST", why is it hard to drive 32? headphones even though it is adverted the amp will fulfill up to 600? headphones. I tried playing around with the realtek software I had installed with my drivers, and it apparently detected my headphones were 600?? Plus, the audio was crap quality, regardless of the silent, under powered headphones I use. Both "HD AUDIO" and rear audio ports suck, too. My speakers were getting fed clipped audio, and it sounded horrible. I plugged in a cheap DIY amp I made (not a DAC) and the audio was clipping horribly with my headphones, and it was much much worse than what my phone can output alone. Plus, why do I need two drivers? Nahimic and Realtek? Why don't I just have one.

There where no reviews on this before I built. I thought it looked amazing and had a great price when I bought it. I feel like aesthetically this is one of the boards that hangs with some of the high end ASUS MOBOs. BIOS is easy to use, and I will be overcloking in the future.

I was an early adopter of Z370s & kinda paid the price. It's fine & I like the lower profile ascetic of the board but it does not have enough USB ports for my needs & I had to buy an expansion.

I love me some MSI and while I couldn't get the Godlike Gaming, I think this is good enough for my build. I love the color scheme and the way you can customize it to your sytle. I did wish that the board had a set of On/Reset switches built in so you can turn it on while you breadboard it or when its on a test rig.

Epic motherboard, easy BIOS, easy installing, awesome software that keeps everything as it should be! LiveUpdater updates youre BIOS by itself risk free, very happy with my choice of board!
