My initial thoughts:
For the price, it is definitely a quality motherboard capable of at least decent over-clocking. No frills version of the more expensive boards . Great bios for nooby like me. Still has all necessary features i.e. all usb 3.1 gen2, 2x max speed SATA ports, m.2 and more (see image 10, back of box). very helpful and clear manual showing locations of each power sockets etc.
Only comes with 2 SATA data cables, so if you have SSD+HDD you will need another sata cable from an old computer/ebay to have an optical drive :) But when first booting/installing things you can always just swap out cables.
It is brown when put under white light but it just looks like a nice very dark brown/black normally, a good option for black schemed colour builds. (Google and/or see my pics)
CAUTION: However do NOT use MSI Live Update to update bios or any of that. Everyone says to avoid it and if you don't need to update then don't do it.
Probably should of gone for one of the gaming boards but this does the job. Oh the I/O shield is **** but aren't they all now.
Seems fine and supports 7.1 audio. Only thing I don't like is that it only has three 4 pin fan headers. Plenty of USB 3 support.backplate included,etc. Plus when I purchase my next CPU, it will be overclockable so I won't need a new MOBO.
Its a nice and motherboard. I got it for a good price, it does its job.
Basic Skylake Z170 motherboard. Doesn't have too many features, but I didn't need that anyway. Nice and cheap.
Nothing special. Just got it because it was cheap and had enough USB & SATA Ports.
Pretty basic motherboard I kept from previous build. No problems with it.
Motherboard - Bios very easy to use. Booted up Win. 10 easily. Haven't attempted overclocking with this board yet.
A low cost motherboard with over-clocking capabilities that fit my budget and my color scheme.
Good board if you can find it for a good price. I had to RMA my first one after it'd only recognize 2 out of the 4 RAM slots.
Replacement unit came and so far I've got no problems with it. Seems to be able to handle some basic overclock to a 7600K. I'd love an RGB header, but you can't complain for the price.
