Most Favorable Review

It works without issues

MSI MAG B650 TOMAHAWK WIFI AM5 AMD B650 SATA 6Gb/s DDR5 Ryzen 7000 ATX Motherboard
MSI MAG B650 TOMAHAWK WIFI AM5 AMD B650 SATA 6Gb/s DDR5 Ryzen 7000 ATX Motherboard

Pros: Unlike other B650 mobos this one had no issues booting with a 7700X and 32GB of GSskill 5600 DDR5 RAM. Rock solid running PBO Mode 3 with CPU max temp capped at 90c.

Cons: Had an issue with my MSI 4090 Suprim Liquid with shipping mobo BIOS, 4090 was stuck at PCIe Gen 1.0 instead of Gen 4 speed. I put in a ticket with MSI and in less than 24hs they provided me with BIOS ver 1.11 that took care of the issue. Excellent service by MSI here. Only gripe is the price, B650 mobos should be less pricey than they currently are.

Overall Review: I would recommend this mobo without reserve.

Most Critical Review

Incompatible with most software

Mad Catz Saitek Pro Flight X-55 Rhino H.O.T.A.S. (Hands on Throttle and Stick) System for PC
Mad Catz Saitek Pro Flight X-55 Rhino H.O.T.A.S. (Hands on Throttle and Stick) System for PC

Pros: Looks great

Cons: This hardware is incompatible with over 90% of software that can use a joystick and throttle as they are seen as two separate devices and when the throttle is connected it uses the same axis as the joystick making the joystick unusable. The manufacturer's software does not address this issue in any way and you are forced to use a third party software to rectify the situation, if you can get that to work. For HOTAS that costs $200 that should not be the case.

Fastest GPU ever, gorgeous design, cool and quiet operation

Pros: Personally I think this is the best looking GPU ever made. Incredibly fast, yet unlike other 4090s this one fits easily in two slots. Of course you need to have space for the rad and you have to have it expelling lots of heat outside your case.

Cons: Only one con: price. Ouch!! Gonna keep this bad boy for a long time.

Overall Review: If you can afford it you won't regret it.

Great product!

MSI GeForce GTX 970 GAMING 4G

Pros: Fast, silent, overclocks like a champ. The best of the 970 cards!

Cons: None with the exception that I missed out on the bundled mouse pad. If any MSI people see this please let me know how I can get a couple.

No voltage control

Pros: Cool running, holds its own at 1600x900.

Cons: Despite what the box says and what some MSI reps here have stated there's no way to increase voltage to the GPU on this model card. I really think MSI pulled a fast one here. They should remove all references to voltage control in the box and description of the card and send people who bought this product a repalcement card that actually can be overvolted unlike this one. At least I got the VRAM maxed out.

Insanely fast

Pros: Amazing card. Wicked fast, can handle ANY title at 1080 with AA/AF with ease. Runs cool and quiet but I've set up my own fan profile. I got very lucky and got a golden sample that runs at 1333/7000. No need for spend more $ on a 680.

Cons: Price? This gen is somewhat overprice in my opininon but there is value here.
