First MSI a good motherboard5/12/2021 8:18:12 PM

Pros: Easy to install, it goes well with Fractal Meshify2 case, and the BIOS is pretty easy to navigate.

Cons: I did not care for the orientation of the ATX power plug was installed on the board. More 4-pin fan headers would be useful. After installing the rear i/o plate for the board, I had issues trying to install the ethernet connector in that there was a tab that was somewhat blocking the port. It would have been nice to have utilities external to BIOS where one could observe and control fans and cpu turbo-ing and or OC capability.

Overall Review: I would recommend this motherboard.

Great processor5/12/2021 7:59:45 PM

Pros: This processor runs and runs pretty well. I was playing around in BIOS and had it running @ 4.7GHz. Its the first time I ever heard Firefox open up with a smaking sound. 🤣 X Plane 11 fairs pretty well too.

Cons: At this point in time, there is nothing that I dislike about this processor.

Overall Review: I would recommend this processor, if you are looking for a 6-core processor

Fractal meshify25/12/2021 7:43:11 PM

Pros: I really like this case. It has loads of room and the air flow is exceptional. To say that the designers of this case have their ducks in a row would be an understatement. The functionality of this case goes beyond the status quo. I put in an additional 4 140mm fans so far. I had some trouble slipping in my first 140 Noctura on the bottom front, as the space was somewhat tight. I am running three 140's in the top, and at this time, they are keeping my 11600 i5 temps at 47C~48C at 4.7Ghz

Cons: I think the case could use another 2" length, width and height; make it the biggest mid-tower. An area for a CD/DVD ROM would have been great. Instead of 3-pin fans, 4-pin fans. More fan headers

Overall Review: I would highly recommend this case and would not hesitate purchasing another. Once again, hats off to the designers -it is a great case.
