This was a great board 9/24/2018 8:23:57 AM

Pros: During mid-late 2018, I had this motherboard running a i7 7700k overclocked to 4.7 ghz, 4x4 GB (16 GB total) of 3200 mhz DDR4 RAM OCed in the BIOS and a EVGA 1080 ti FTW3, along with a 500 GB SSD and 6 TB HDD. The PC was hooked up to a 144 hz 1440p monitor with G-Sync-- and the games were REALLY FAST. I was playing Far Cry 5 all summer in the 120-144 fps range on ultra with this hardware and wow was it an experience... I mean vivid like I was actually there.

Cons: It's not waterproof

Overall Review: Yeah I spilled water on it, otherwise would still be using it. Great board would buy again.

I tried to replace it with an ASUS z270-P and was appalled by the cheap build quality. ASUS pins were flimsy and bending/pushing into the mobo... MSI is clearly the winner here, with durable construction, DDR4 boost and high quality audio.

What a great product 9/5/2017 7:31:39 PM

Cons: No real cons.

Performs well for a great price! 7/13/2017 6:52:38 PM

Pros: - Great performance
- Great price compared to other z170 boards
- Easy to install and set up with a 6th gen processor
- Supports 7th generation Intel processors after BIOS update

Cons: - Pre-installed BIOS does not support 7th gen processors

Overall Review: I ordered this motherboard because I was building a decent gaming PC and was looking for a Z170 motherboard that was not too expensive. This motherboard is easy to install and, with a 6th gen intel processor easy to set up. It does not get in the way of performance. It overclocks easily and does not bottleneck. However, the pre-installed BIOS does not support intel 7th gen processors, so I had to buy a cheap 6th gen processor in order to update the BIOS so I could use my i7-7700k

Great overclocker! 5/17/2017 7:23:25 PM

Pros: I put a 6600k in this and overclocked it to 4.6Ghz at 1.35v with rock solid stability. Tweaking the voltage settings was a breeze. I set it on automatic voltage to take advantage of energy saving features.

Cons: Overclocking an i7 with this board had a few problems keeping voltages at set levels. But, i5's overclock great!

Great for he price. 12/17/2016 8:45:46 AM

Pros: Two USB 3.0 header connections. Easy overclocking features. More SATA ports than you'd needs for a MicroATX build.

Cons: Red LED's were a bit annoying and you can't change the color. You have to go into your power management settings in the UEFI. Only two fan headers please the CPU fan.

It is a trap 11/27/2016 4:52:40 AM

Pros: The reviews were apparently good.

Cons: This motherboard came faulty, making a high-frequency noise, making it unusable. When C1E is enabled, and we run some applications (like enter the UEFI settings), then we do not even talk. I contacted 6 times with MSI's RMA sector, both on the site and by email, and to date I did not get an answer. I gave up. I'm posting this review here and I never buy any MSI products, a company I've been a customer for about ten years, and that provided a service that I thought was excellent so far. But not anymore.

In short: terrible.

Overall Review: I'm considering to get an ASUS Z170-PRO to replace this one.

Good Board. Needs more fan slots 11/18/2016 10:23:58 AM

Pros: -Very Sturdy. especially around the power connector slots.
-Nice white/black/silver theme

Cons: -24 pin connector was hard for inserting into slot
-only two fan header slots (although its microATX so it is what it is)
LEDs on the back are dim and provided no real lighting

Overall Review: wish this board had an m.2 slot, but other than that and the addition of another fan header or two; this board is rock solid so far and i love its color scheme. would give it 4.5 eggs but thats not possible so if you read this far you'll understand why its got a 5/5 even after my grievances

MSI Z170M MORTAR LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 uATX Intel Motherboard 9/8/2016 10:01:18 AM

Pros: The quality of this motherboard is solid. But BIOS and drive are pretty bad.

Cons: First,I used BIOS XMP to OC my RAM from 2133 to 3200(G.Skill Tridentz 3200 2*8GB ). But this will cause the lower half screen get breaking flash. I checked on MSI forum, lots of people have this problem. I should visit the forum before I brought this product.
Second, the SYSTEM process will use 25%+ CPU sometimes which is when I only opened one webpage on Chrome. Try to find which thread in SYSTEM cause this. It is ntoskrnl.exe. People on MSI forum get the conclusion that this is some BIOS problem.

Overall Review: If they have more system fan connector on this motherboard. This is the second day since I built my PC. Will keep updating if there is anything new.
update:9/9/2016
Actually, the high CPU usage seems caused by Intel CPU graphic card drive. But XMP still a problem of this motherboard.
