Pros: This MoBo installed very easy in my Corsair Carbide 03. Everything aligned perfectly. Even the WiFI antennae looked tricky but was easy too. Runs cool in setup mode anyway. Only just arrived here few hours ago and looks great.
Cons: Have found this "Z170 Tomahawk ac" listed on MSI.com But; have not installed Windows OS yet, so no way to get to drivers; or support page. I remember having to install Dos partition to get Windows installer to see my Samsung SSD. MoBo can see it. Now when I look for support page at MSI.com MoBo not even listed. Have to try using an old Hard Drive to get it started on OS install.
Other Thoughts: About those tiny screws for WiFi bracket: find an old floppy disk drive. If you keep them around, get those screws from it. Had mine from long past failed floppy drive kept them in a plastic baggy till needed em.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: With 4 USB 3.0 and 4 USB 2.0 sockets plus 2 USB 2.0 mouse/keyboard,,, Fan headers are all four pin can use 3 pin fans too. PCIE 2.0 =3 slot. I use one PCIE .3.0 @ 16x.
Corsair water cooled cpu fits nice. Very nice board arrangement everything has room!
Cons: The driver package has some legacy support items; Avoid them if you can.
Other Thoughts: Everything works as described in the install book. My experience with this board is very good one. Recommend it for gaming and any other home use. Use XMP settings but nothing else overclocked.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Has just enough room for my MSI 760 with side power connectors. Three pin fans 120 mm = three included. USB 3 sockets up front. Did I mention very light to lift up. Well planned cable storage area. Easy to setup front connectors. Looks better than the pictures.
Cons: Screw set has 6 standoffs.. Lucky I had extras. Fans are 3 pin not four pin speed control type. Scary moments as I looked for best place to install drives with mother board in first.
Other Thoughts: Considered Mini Itx ; but good deals where for Atx. Issue with the mother board back plate. Put it in place; it fell out. Then was difficult to snap in.READ FULL REVIEW
