Works great 4/8/2020 10:42:41 PM

Pros: Used the usb stick bios update - no problems there
This board controls the led of memory and fans
No interference on headphones from EF noise
The EZ debug leds worked correctly and helpful
The translations are entertaining
Easily fit into the case "Fractal Design Define Mini C"

Cons: Ran the ram at 2133mhz and had to unlock overclock expert mode to run it at 3466mhz, why not autodetect?
I don't think the fan speed reported in windows 10 software has anything to do with reality. The fans speed on their "dragon center" app says one thing, open a game, sounds like jet taking off and the value stay the same

Overall Review: Met my expectations for ease of installation, troubleshooting, and software support in the OS. Requires tinkering to get the fan settings how they should be out of box.

Good bored just no wifi and cant seems to update the bios easily 2/16/2020 7:20:19 AM

Pros: Looks good and is well made. Good color scheme and was well packed in shipping.

Cons: Only comes with one gpu slot and two ram slots. I didnt have the problem but cation when buying a cpu to fit with this bored there is a heat sink of some kind at the back of the gpu slot that could prevent you from fully slotting the gpu in. Updating the bios is not easy because of all the small things that could be wrong from specific usp slots used for the bios to the site not having the correct bios for your bored.

Overall Review: Good bored and mine worked. I would probably go with a cheaper option with more slots for expansion. Aslo this isn't a great "first time build bored" the instructions are poor and there isn't much in the way of build guides on youtube

Low cost, but the Micro ATX form factor limits expansion 1/7/2020 5:58:11 PM

Pros: Works and easy to update the Bios.
Nice appearance

Cons: ATX from factor means that all PCI slots are basically not accessible if you use a decent Graphics card. This can prevent you from even adding a WiFi card.

Overall Review: Worth it if you are only putting in a graphics card for a living room gaming PC, but if you are looking for expansion capabilities, you should go with a full size ATX

Great for my Micro ATX build! Totally worth it. 12/19/2019 1:35:34 PM

Pros: - Came on time
- Works as advertised (check online for more detailed specs)
- Awesome design
- Affordable
- RAM clearance is okay-ish when using Ryzen 7 2700 stock Wraith Spire RGB cooler.

Cons: - The Gaming App driver includes an MSI_LED.exe that interferes with my RGB schemes. It's not compatible with my G.Skill Trident Z rgb RAM and my Razer keyboard. Everytime I open my Razer Synapse 3, it says "MSI_LED.exe" is controlling my keyboard. Hence, I can't personalize it. It took me a while to fix it, but all I had to do is to DELETE that from the gaming app folder. This should work for anyone wondering what to do.

- The I/O shield is somewhat hard to install. I had to cut off some piece/s of metal from the back side just for it to fit the motherboard's I/O.

Overall Review: Overall, I'd rate it 4 stars. Having few cons is just normal. I would still recommend this to anyone building a Micro ATX build.
