Its been a year. 11/29/2019 11:16:09 AM

Pros: I did watch a build on YouTube from Australia on assembling this board that was a lot of help. Many thanks for that video. Motherboard install was a bit time consuming but fairly straight forward. I am running it at default setting except for RAM and fan control. It recognized the RAM set for 3000 and they were 3200. That was manually changed. The fan controls are in the Cons section. Most of the read-back monitors stays at 40C while gaming. No issues with it running. I was lucky enough that the bios was updated before it was shipped. It saved a few steps during start-up.

Cons: The startup puts the board into silent mode. Which means no fans running after startup completes. I have to go into the Command Center and reset the fans for gaming to keep the system cool. Would like to change default to my setting for gaming. Not a major con. After a year, it is routine now.
The only hot spot on the board is the PCH monitor. It runs 4-8 Celsius hotter that the rest of the board.

Overall Review: Board works as advertised. Have had no issues with it.

Seemless windows 10 pro install, and I am a proud owner of the GS70-2PE, GT73VR-6RF and now this... the MSI Meg Creation X399 4/17/2019 9:48:11 AM

Pros: -I have never had an issue with an MSI products and laptops and when came time to build a custom desktop, I wanted this motherboard from the start (after months of planning)
-I have an RTX titan gpu, 2990wx Threadripper cpu, 128gb 3600mz Gskill Trident Pro ddr4 ram, and all the rgb bells and whistles and it booted up first try, windows and all!
-Easy to read instructions and or manual, just follow the steps and you cant go wrong..

Cons: - did have a hiccup with a driver and a NDIS BSOD during windows install, specifically the the Intel Wireless-AC 9260 driver, however just follow this easy MSI forum and it work perfectly, just took the time to download the driver to fix lol:
https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=309637.0
-the screws for the M.2 heatsinks are a little too tight, and may strip like one of mine has, just make sure to have the proper screwdriver handy

Overall Review: I highly recommend this motherboard to anyone, this was my first custom desktop build and its packed with all the high end components to boot and its all compatible.. only took me a cpl hour too boot into windows and fully install every driver for the components as well.... 10/10 MSI well done.

Problematic Windows 10 Pro install 2/21/2019 8:13:23 AM

Pros: So far, working fine now that I spent 8 hours getting a stable Windows 10 install.

Cons: Software issues on install

Overall Review: So if you aren't competent and willing to spend a bit of time doing a driver install dance, just say no. I haven't played with overclocking yet, I hope it is more capable than my other MSI board which wont overclock my 32 core threadripper past about 3600 mhz

Cannot Install Windows 10 and MSI support is non-existent. 11/30/2018 1:34:50 PM

Pros: Probably a good board if it worked

Cons: Doesn't detect my drives and USB if Windows 10 support is turned on.

Overall Review: Can't install win10 either via SSD, m.2, from windows installation CD via internal optical DVD drive or USB drive or USB external DVD drive. UEFI won't detect my drives/USB if I set the setting to support Windows 10 in the bios, it only detects it if Windows 10 support is off but obviously that won't work since that would just result in the installer not working.

Top VRM design, extensive M.2 support, expensive 11/23/2018 3:17:56 AM

Pros: Second pass at a motherboard after giving up on a failing MSI SLI PLUS X399 mobo that suffered from high VRM temps & dead audio. Seriously heavy duty design, best in class VRM design (and it runs very cool), super-extended M.2 support (if you use the bundled PCIE card), USB-C port, full featured. Easy BIOS layout, updated just recenty (11/15) very good. Tons of thermal monitoring options, I can't imagine any board having any as many points to measure in CPUID's HW Monitor as this. Overclocking options are simple and convenient.

Cons: Downside: Price and availability. E-ATX size and layout led to cramped cabling in my Thermaltake Core V71 Tempered Glass ed. case. Mobo PCIe power connector is a horrible MOLEX unicorn in a weird location, why?

Overall Review: Wish I had bought this motherboard in the first place instead of losing hours (and $$$) monkey around with the (cheaper, simpler) SLI PLUS mobo that ultimately had to be scrapped. Premium product, and good looking - the M.2 FROZR heat spreaders are seriously heavy, and not over-flashy with the LED stuff but man... DAT PRICE

The best X399 board right now 10/22/2018 9:52:33 PM

Pros: I was impressed by the reviews of the 16 phase power delivery system, especially by KitGuru. The board appears to be the most robust out there, and should future proof my system for a couple more generations of Threadripper. This was my first new build since 2011 and my i7 2600K. That system was completely maxed out so I had to do a completely new build.

In any case the build was completely free of hiccups. It booted the first time from 16GB USB stick which I had preloaded with the Windows 10 OEM install. I immediately went into the BIOS and changed the memory to Profile 2 so the RipJaws V (14-14-14-34) would run at their stated 3200 speed. The OS was installed on my Samsung 970 Pro NVMe within minutes.

I went with a 32GB kit of G.Skill RipJaws V (F4-3200C14Q-32GVK) as it was on the motherboard's QVL list, even though it's not marketed as AMD specific memory. It works beautifully with this board and is among the cheapest Samsung B-die available.

Cons: It's E-ATX, which limits your case choices somewhat.

Overall Review: I mainly do 3D modeling and 4K video editing so I went with a 1920X because of its bang for the buck performance in Davinci Resolve and because of the HUGE price drop. Performance is above expectations with my two Titan Xp cards and a GTX 970 driving the display. My last PCI-E slot is filled with a Black Magic Design Intensity 4K capture/display card.

All of this is in a Thermaltake V71 case with an external Watercool MO-RA3 420 radiator cooling the two Titan cards (EK water blocks) and the 1920X, which uses the all metal version the XSPC Raystorm Neo TR4 water block. The PSU is an EVGA 1600 P2.

The board looks much better in person with a black, gray, silver aesthetic. I removed the plastic cover over the i/O which looks better.

It has been completely glitch free from the first power on. I highly recommend it.
