Pros: Easy setup
Worked out of the box with Ryzen 7 3700x.
Cons: Wifi / Ethernet does not work as expected.
Dragon Center software can not reliably update BIOS.
Overall Review: Decent board for the newest generation of AMD processors, with some out-of-box issues.
Wifi / Realtek PCI-E Ethernet Drivers on the website are garbage. Have Gigabit Ethernet and couldn't get over 200 Mbps download, 8 Mbps upload wired or wireless. Had to scour MSI forums for troubleshooting, finally deleting the Realtek drivers and letting Win 10 use default drivers, I can get 900+ Mbps download and 35-40 Mbps upload wired, which is where it should be. Never did get wireless upload speeds past 8Mbps, but since the computer will be plugged in, that's not a total deal breaker.
Tried updating the BIOS using Dragon Center software and it hardlocked my system (computer restarted to black screen). Had to reset CMOS. Will never be using that software again to update BIOS.
This review is for the MSI Review Rebate Program.
Overall Review: This is my first fully modular power supply, and first time buying Seasonic. I must say that I am impressed! The packaging was secure, and I love the cloth bags that enclosed the power supply and cables - that was a nice touch. I will never go back to a non-modular power supply design. The unit is quiet, which is always nice.
A 10 year warranty is great, hopefully I will never need to use it.
I will definitely buy Seasonic again for my future computer builds.
Pros: Worked out of the box. Love the white color. It's Corsair. Price was great!
Cons: Doesn't come in blue for 2 x 8GB.
Overall Review: Stable and affordable. Will purchase again!
