The Bios for this motherboard is good. It comes with auto overclock but only to 4.5 Ghz on i5 7600k. Guess I still will have to learn manual OC to get it to 5GHz. My only issue with this motherboard is my speaker seems to have some white noise in the background. Noticeable when no music is playing. But I am not sure if which is the problem.
I really like the looks of this board, minus the kinda cheesy writing on the top of the IO ports, but my rear case fan mostly covers that from view. It is a good mid-range Z270 option and I do not really miss the bells and whistles of the high end motherboards. I do hate the red LED that is present under the PCI-E port and have not figured out a non-warranty voiding way to turn it off. The UEFI is a bit clunky, but I am more used to old school BIOS settings and that may just be me. Overall it seems solid and I never felt like I was going to break a port while installing everything.
Great motherboard, really good looking too, the bios might need some time to get used to (I only used Asus UEFI so thats why)
The LEDs stay white for me and I just want Purple lights...why
Got a good price on it. Really like the black and white stripes. Not a fan of MSI bios.
