    from completed build My First Gaming Rig

    Well balanced motherboard for gaming, Simple design with strong feature set.

    • Easy to overclock i7-9700K and voltage regulator cooling is also good for overclocking. Look for Overclocking guide on msi website or just press Game Boost button in Bios and all set

    • XMP overclocking is also good. I am able to hit up to 3060mhz on 3000 mhz Memory

    • I love the no of RGB and ARGB headers, i have build a beautiful RGB system, check the pics

    • Well Using MSI RTX 2070 Super with this MB and i must say it works really well, overclocking also working as expected, hitting at 1980 mhz with 100% power with Dragon center app

    • I did not see System temperature goes higher than 62-63 degree temp, tested with MSI Kombustor and GPU Z stress testing for more than 30 mins

    • With 100Mbps connection and On Board WIFI i am able to hit 93.7 Mbps with 5 GHz frequency which is highest among all other devices, and the best part is it has MU-MIMO support

    • 5 Fan headers included which is easy to configure with PWM/DC step-up and down based on the CPU/system temperature, CPU AIO Pump header is really good addition, this configuration makes the system silent and cool. Balance approach to keep system cool and silent both with good performance from all the components.

    Conclusion:

    • Good MB at this prize

    • Easy overclocking with Game boost for entry level gamer, overclocking potential is good

    • System stays cool under load

    • Good wifi card onboard

    • Happy to have AIO pump header

    Flawless. Excellent VRM thermals and stability, even with 5.0ghz overclock on i9 9900k, at a very good price.

    from completed build Dragon Jr

    Overall is a very nice motherboard that I hope to keep for years to come and upgrade around. 2x TURBO M.2, usb-c and built in wifi making it an all around great first and lasting motherboard choice. Only small concern was MSI website is not as streamlined as I am used to for updates.

    Very nice motherboard for the price. Offers RGB and has more than enough fan ports. The backlit RGB offers nice features as well. Also have had no problems with the Mystic Light software.

    from completed build Gaming v2.0

    Good motherboard, had everything that I needed and the bios is a pleasure to use. Its reinforced PCI-E Steel Armor combined with the case means I am seeing little to no sag on my card.

    The choice was between the older Z370 chipset and the newer Z390 chipset when I started my build and I chose the newer chipset mainly because of the inclusion of the AC WiFi onboard the Z390 board. Maybe for future proofing , I can later decide to upgrade the Core i5 8th gen CPU to something more powerful in the 9th gen cpu range from intel. The spacious board was so nice to work with during the build process and it accommodated my NVidia GPU perfectly with enough airflow around the card.
