Very Well Made 9/27/2020 2:17:54 PM

Pros: This is my first purchase of a MSI motherboard. I have used several of the two top rated motherboards in the past. I was surprised at the quality of this MSI motherboard. It was very
sturdy and well made. All of the hookups for fans etc were well placed. I would bye MSI again.

Cons: The SATA hookups on the motherboard were too few for my liking. I realize people are moving away from this type drive hookup and using the M.2 storage drives.

Overall Review: Very Good
