Cons: Not sure if its the MOBO or this but when i first started my new build up this wouldnt show under MY PC. Would show in device manager,not a big deal. Created a drive and boom! In business!
Overall Review: Drive is a beast, loads games and programs super fast. This drive is only used for games and programs, have a Samsung 970 EVO for my os. Crazy difference in speed compared to my SSD i was using.
Pros: 2 M.2 slots
Easy to use BIOS
Cons: Only 1, it wouldn't populate my other M.2 drive. Device manager knew it was there but it wouldn't list it in MY PC. Had to go in and write the drive in and its fine now. Just thought that it was strange, not sure if that's a motherboard issue or a drive issue. Either way, it was a quick fix. Just a strange one is all.
Overall Review: Great board, love the colors. AMD and MSi baby! Looks awesome! The BIOS is super easy to use, had a BIOS update and to flash it was one of the easiest processes ive ever done. Compared to my last board, ASROCK X370 Killer SLI\Crossfire (great board) but updating the BIOS in that thing was a nightmare!
GeIL Evo X AMD Editon 16GB (2x8GB) 3200MHZ
Samsung 970 EVO 256GB M.2(OS only)
Sabrent Rocket Q M.2 1Tb(Everything else)
Sapphire RX 580 (upgrading once AMD announces their new cards)
MSI Optix AG32C 32 monitor
MSI Interceptor DS200 Gaming Mouse
AVIO Mechanical keyboard
Corsair 750 Power Supply (Full modular)
Cons: RGB software is a pain.
Overall Review: Great mouse, been using it for a couple weeks and big improvement over my Hyper optical mouse i was using. I've never used a laser mouse before and I'll tell you, this is nice! Changing the DPI on the fly is easy, going from battlefield to browsing the web, no problem! Only thing i could complain about is the software, maybe its me but idk. I went to MSI's website to get the download but yeah about that not a thing. AGAIN, maybe its me but i couldn't get it to work. The red lights it puts off is perfect though, matches my scheme to a T!
Pros: The screen
Red lights on the back (subtle yet classy)
Overall Review: This monitor a BEAST! Games look amazing and the picture is beautiful! Playing Battle Front 2 on max looks b.e.a.utiful! Any game looks amazing, along with the options to change what mode you want is good to. From FPS to whatever, its a great monitor. I wouldn't do 2, these things are bigger then you think. Unless you want to roll from one side of your desk to the other to look at em. I have to set back a ways in my chair just for 1 lol.
Pros: Easy to install
Like the Red
Cons: Instructions are a joke, scan the QR code and it takes you to a Chinese site and yep......of no help. It wasn't hard to put together but still instructions would be nice for others that may not be able to figure it out.
Overall Review: The red scheme is cool and matches my MSI AMD setup I'm rocking. Easy to install (minus the awful instructions) temps stay super cool.
Overall Review: Purchased this lil fella to put my OS on and wow it is fast, computer fires up and BOOM! I purchased another M.2 for programs and games, wanted to keep the OS separate from the other jazz on the computer. No regrets with picking this up. I had no idea how small these things are! Paired this with a MSI MPG X570 Gaming plus and I'm rocking! If you're looking to upgrade your drive, this is the ticket!
Its the new 7nm chip
Cons: mmmm nope!
Overall Review: I've had AMD processors since the AMD Athlon dual core first came out. I have zero regrets from switching from Intel to AMD. I upgraded from a 1600x to this and there is a difference for sure. I basically use it for gaming and certain programs, no video editing or anything like that. Processor is quick and does what i need to it and that's all i can ask for.
Pros: Nice fit
Cons: Slight static
Overall Review: I was in need of a new headset for my New build and decided to go with this MSI model. No regrets thus far. The headset fits nice and has great sound, only issue is some static. I messed with the cord and it seems to the issue. Its nothing i cant live with, just had to mess with it a little bit and its fine now. This headset fits perfectly in with my MSI build i'm doing.
Easy to overclock
Overall Review: Been running my new system with this set of memory for about a week now and so far so good. My MSI motherboards BIOS makes it easy to overclock! The RGB's are a nice touch. I didn't get wrapped up with the software to change the lights, so i can not speak for that. If you don't change the transition of the lights, the default look awesome. I'd recommend them for sure.
Plenty of ports
Cons: Truthfully I don't have any
Overall Review: I've been running this motherboard since 2017. Have not had a single issue, machine boots up every time. Computer boots up in no time! Running a AMD 1600x with a 580X along with 16gb ram with a SSD for the OS and a 2tb for games. Long story short no problems since first install in 2017!
Pros: Got this hard drive a couple days ago, installed windows in 5-6 mins. Good lord its quick! My last HD was a 7200 rpm and i didn't think i would see such a difference in speed!
Cons: Only con is that windows gave it a rating of 5.9? Doesn't make much sense to me honestly, considering my last hd got the same rating? Oh well thing still fly's!
