MSI MSI Gaming Z170A GAMING M7 LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Great looking board
-Awesome feature set
-Has USB 3.1 type C
-BIOS v1.6 seems very stable
-UEFI is awesome

Cons: Not cheap.

Other Thoughts: Really a high quality mobo, and I am very happy with purchase. Yes it was on the pricey side a little bit, but it has worked flawlessly so far with my i7 6700k/Corsair H80i. Super easy OC to 4.7GHz seems very stable and temps are fine.

Feature set is fantastic. Can't wait to try out an NVMe M.2 drive. BTW, you don't have to install the Nahimic sound software if you don't like it. I tried it for a few days, and then removed it np. Not a big deal to me at all like some seem to think.

Almost went with the ASUS, but I'm glad I got this one.

Quality board! Well done again MSI.

  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -VERY Fast RAM
-Looks cool

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I'm not sure why the others are slamming this RAM, as it worked perfectly right out of the box for me. I have a MSI Z170A Gaming 7 board, and after one button clicked and it was running XMP at 3000MHz!

Love it!
No glitches or issues after one solid week. Really liking this RAM.

Intel Core i7-6700K 8M Skylake Quad-Core 4.0 GHz LGA 1151 95W BX80662I76700K Desktop Processor Intel® HD Graphics 530
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Runs very cool
-Seems to OC very easily
-Prob OC higher than Devils Canyon

Cons: -Not a huge "tock" from i7 4790k

Other Thoughts: I am actually very pleased with this Skylake proc. It runs very cool idling in the teens using a Corsair H80i. Very Fast! I mean this thing is a scorcher. If you have a Haswell or Broadwell you can wait, but Ivy Bridge or older it is noticeable.

Plus the Z170 boards have a feature set worth upgrading for.

I give this one 5 stars. Replaced a rig running an i5 3570k and I'm so glad I upgraded. Bought an MSI Z170 Gaming M7 board and some Corsair 3000MHz DDR4 RAM. It is absolutely awesome.
