Very good product. Love the aesthetics. 10/29/2019 12:33:14 AM

Pros: I bought this motherboard after researching for a few days online. Initially, I was going to buy the Asus board for my 9700k, but I changed my mind after seeing a video of benchmarks.
The color scheme is excellent and fits with any build. I love that this board has plenty of fan headers as well as RGB headers. Before this z390 build, I never messed with RGB, so this is all new to me, but this board makes it very easy to learn.

Cons: The bios are laid out pretty nicely. I don't find the overclock "switch/dial" to be handy. If you want to overclock, it's better to do it on your own. Maybe if you are a beginner, this would be helpful?

Overall Review: it's really great I highly recommend it
especially if youre planning to overclock

Good product. No issues. Like the aesthetics. 10/25/2019 11:52:55 AM

Pros: I upgraded to this and a 9700k from a 3960X and an ASUS motherboard. This setup is very noticeably faster. I didn't run into any real issues with the board. This is the first time in probably 15 years that I have used an MSI product. Last MSI motherboard was I think an AMD Thunderbird board. (Showing my age...)

BIOS was easy to navigate. I was able to overclock my 9700k with ease. I appreciate the steel reinforcements on the memory and PCI-E slots. Though I'm pretty sure they don't do that much on the memory slots. Audio is surprisingly good also.

Cons: The only thing that confused me at first was how to put the NVME drive in the bottom slot with the heatsink. I almost didn't use it. KILLER software isn't really that helpful. I remember when KILLER first came out. I thought it was awesome what it tried to do. I quickly realized that deep down, it really wasn't doing much.

Overall Review: My choice was between this board and the Gaming Pro Carbon. I've used Gigabyte, Asus, and EVGA motherboards a lot in the past. I wanted to see what MSI had been up to. I'm happy to say, they don't disappoint with this board.

P.S. If my board catches fire after I leave this glowing review, I am going to be really upset. :P

Great board packed with perks 9/9/2019 6:16:57 AM

Pros: I have had this board for a little over two months and just added my second SSD to the M.2. It handles both disks perfectly, along with my 2tb HDD. All the features and the Dragon Center and BIOS make tuning this puppy quick and effortless. MSI's customer service is impeccable too. Highly recommended.

Cons: Wish the dragon logo on the board lit up and all three m.2 slots had the froze shield.

Overall Review: Definitely a solid board and glad I picked it for my first PC build.

Not worth until I get a replacement 8/31/2019 5:45:27 AM

Overall Review: I have got this motherboard a month ago, and after assembling everything I couldn't even install windows 10 because of the freezing issue. I tried changing many settings and after changing some CPU settings I got better stability, However that stability lasts for 4 min then computer freezes again. So i thought it was the CPU and i changed it with a new one and I have replaced all the parts like the PSU, Rams and storage devices from my old working PC Build and still the issue is present which is computer freezes. Right now I am so tired and not satisfied from what I got from MSI.
