Nice product until it destroyed my drives1/7/2019 2:42:58 PM

Pros: The clone function works well, and the read/write speed is awesome with one or both slots occupied using USB 3.0.

Cons: One day I turned the docking station on as usual to find out the drives I used with it could not be identified. I then tried troubleshooting with a known working drive, but it was not identified either. Plugging them directly into SATA ports of the motherboard let me know that all 3 drives (2 sit in the docking bay initially and 1 used for troubleshooting) are no longer functional. Who knows my hard drives and dala could be destroyed by this product.

Overall Review: Read user manual before use, because you might wipe the drive that you want to clone data from without knowing clearly what you're doing.

Most affordable X299, yet comes with lots of features12/13/2017 10:01:44 PM

Pros: Most affordable X299 Lots of USB headers Can overclock really well 2x M.2 SSD slots, but still has 8xSATA III 2 Gigabit LAN ports, if you are interested in installing two separate cable lines for stability

Cons: Comes with only one heat spreader for the shorter M.2 slot Audio boost somehow is not that good

Overall Review: I am writing this review to enter into the MSI Reward Program, but this will not affect my personal opinion in any way. This is a really decent overclocking board with RGB for less than $300. The BIOS however, is a bit different than other MSI motherboards, so you might have to spend awhile figuring out how to work with it. Once you does, it performs flawlessly, although many people are let down by the changes in the BIOS. I have had a really good experience overclocking with this mobo, probably thanks to Millitary Class 6 rate components. The sound from this board is not as clear as others', but is totally acceptable for me, giving that you get many other great features. If you want top-of-the-line sound quality, I suggest you get a sound card or look somewhere else. Overall this is still a good deal, and even better if you get it with a discount.
