Most Favorable Review

Fantastic Motherboard!

MSI PERFORMANCE GAMING X470 GAMING PRO CARBON AM4 AMD X470 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Easy to work with, had most of the features I was looking for.

Cons: The video on this page at the 2:10 mark says that this motherboard comes with AC WiFi antennas and shows a image of the Gaming Pro Carbon with said antennas, however every other promotional photo and information I came across does not support this. Once I received my motherboard I was not surprised to find out it did not come with any AC WiFi antennas,

Overall Review: Was originally going to go with the x470 AC M7 but everywhere I looked it was sold out. I settled for this motherboard and an Asus AC1300 wireless card.

Most Critical Review

Nice case but cheap build quality

DIYPC Solo-T1-BK Black USB 3.0 ATX Mid Tower Gaming Computer Case with 2 x Blue Fans (1 x 120mm LED fan x front, 1 x 120mm fan x rear) Pre-installed

Pros: Inexpensive good airflow for the price

Cons: Can only use 3 of my 6 sata slots. The inside of the case blocks the 3 bottom ones. Unable to fit a GTX970, but can fit a GTX 770

Overall Review: Should have went with a different case myself, but it works.

Only thermal paste I use

Pros: Been using Arctic Silver 5 for the past 10+ years. Only one I use

Cons: None ever

Working perfectly

TP-Link AC1300 PCIe WiFi PCIe Card (Archer T6E) - 2.4G/5G Dual Band Wireless PCI Express Adapter, Low Profile, Long Range, Heat Sink Technology, Supports Windows 10/8.1/8/7/XP

Pros: Disk works well with options to install Driver and Software or just the Driver

Cons: You need an optical drive to install the driver or download it before installing as Windows 10 does not auto detect the adapter.

Overall Review: Working perfectly. Loving the speeds I am getting from it.
