Great board

Pros: Out of all the competitors and other options of boards, i chose this as i read the reviews for aquite a few. This board had the best all around reviews that i have seen.

Worked straight out of the box, and was easy to install and work with. Plenty of headers for fans (5 four pin headers and a pump 4 pin for a 6th fan or cooling pump).

Rgb is minimal, not necessarily a bad thing. I like the black and silver highlights. Makes the board look good. Works well with my corsair 580x case and ll 120 and 140 corsair rgb fans.

This is my first pc with integrated bluetooth and WiFi. I haven't even plugged in the lan cable. Works great.

Updates for drivers readily available on msi's website, and dragon center is convienet for updates as well.

Cons: I honestly don't see any cons with this board

Other Thoughts: I didn't purchase this to get anything extra, but the assassins creed is a plus to this motherboard. Thanks msi for a great product

Satisfied First Time Builder, Has everything a Computer needs

Pros: - Built-in WiFi and other accessories (Bluetooth, etc.) very useful. Have yet to setup my Ethernet cord. If you are used to buying laptops or pre-built computers laptop this board has just about everything a laptop would have. No extra adapters or Usb dongles needed.
- Instructions manual very well detailed and helped greatly with installation (with pictures and chronological instructions)
- Has everything I need in terms of ports
- All connectors, holes in reasonable places, nothing out of place in terms of internal wiring
- LED Lights subtle enough to not be annoying (they're on the back of the board, so a case with 1 open side like mine provides a nice glow but not a blinding light)
- Nice box. Currently houses all leftover parts, manuals, screws, etc. from after building the computer.
- MSI website makes it very easy to install all necessary drivers.

Cons: - Hard to choose which model to get when there are so many
- Pins for installing the processor were very slightly bent, making it difficult to snap the processor in as it pushed quite hard on the processor. In the end it worked but I had to push a bit harder than I'd have liked to to snap the processor in (you know the, am-I-being-too-careful or am-I-going-to-break-it feeling). Other than this installation was very easy.
- Less than aesthetic back panel (black with red symbols, hard to see and read the names/icons of ports)

Other Thoughts: - Why did I chose this model over the others?
The built-in WiFi sounded very attractive so I knew I was going to pick an AC model. While I initially planned on eventually using an Ethernet cord it is still very convenient to have the WiFi available (LAN parties, moving across the house, etc.); however, the WiFi has been strong enough that I have yet to find a real need to dig out the 200 foot cord needed to reach my router from the upstairs (I'm directly above my router in my house, about 30 feet through a floor).

It was hard to decide which model to choose, as each had about 15 buzzwords associated with them, many overlapping. In the end this one was on sale (about 20 dollars off), and had everything I needed in terms or ports, compatibility with my processor. Because I am a first time builder I was not fully aware of all the minor differences between models, but I am fully satisfied after choosing this one.

- Would I recommend this to other builders?
Yes, big yes. Even though I have not personally seen the difference with this model and all the others I am personally satisfied enough that I am not worried about it.

- How good is the on-board WiFi?
I have mentioned the WiFi a few times. At one point my connection was slower than desired. After updating my WiFi drivers (at the time of this review to the INTEL drivers available on MSI's website from 3/20/2019) everything was much better and I have yet to experience slowdown since. I hope this remains the way because this was a major selling point for me.

Easy Setup, Looks Great!

Pros: -Its one of the prettiest motherboards I've ever seen
-Its super easy to install, no stress involved
-The board is labeled nicely so you don't have to figure out what goes where

Cons: -Nothing

Other Thoughts: This motherboard was extremely easy to install. The last motherboard I bought and installed ages ago was an asus sabertooth Z77 and that thing was a nightmare. It was bulky, it didn't line up correctly with its own io plate, it was prone to short circuiting etc. Now I needed a replacement, as I was searching I felt only anxiety. I had no idea whether a motherboard would be user friendly or not but a friend recommended me this one here. Straight out the box it looked sleek. The instruction manual was very helpful and the motherboard itself was labeled clearly. The io shield fit perfectly onto the motherboard and installation was easy. Before I knew it I had the motherboard and all my parts into my case.

Decent enough performance

Pros: -for the on-paper specs, great price.
-RGB

Cons: -Can't get bluetooth drivers to work,
-Can't get nahimic" or whatever the hell their audio drivers/bullcrap is called. Apparently me and everyone else under the sun has experienced the same (regarding the audio drivers). Ontop of that left speaker output is noticeably bad quality and i'm not an audiophile. Luckily, bluetooth (not the intel/included BT but a dongle) work alright.
-After all these years and you guys still can't write a coherent english manual? I don't really even look at it except for the essentials it's just sad really.

Other Thoughts: Recommend: no.
Am I upset: no. Maybe irritated.
Will I buy another MSI product? No

Do not buy MSI, their warranty coverage is garbage

Pros: Worked good for 2 months

Cons: - When it fried suddenly (no overclocking etc, just normal use, fried while not even in use), they have a replace only option for this motherboard (most brands offer replace or refund). The replacement process takes 3 weeks. And since Windows 10 boot drive is locked to the motherboard hardware, you cannot just swap out for a different one in the meantime. Customer service is not helpful, they have no other options to help you out despite your hardware dying through no fault of your own except to sit and wait without a computer for 3 weeks, no refund options, you are entirely in their hands while they take several days just to unpack the motherboard and verify your problem, let alone all the shipping time, refurbishment, etc.

If they would just offer a refund option, I would purchase my replacement immediately while they do their snail paced testing etc knowing that the board has no physical damage and died through normal use.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy MSI. Get another brand, my dealings with other manufacturers like Intel and Asus have been nothing but positive. MSI support is amateur at best.
