Packaging is neat and professional with everything labeled and in individual bags. A instructional guild that is so simple and helpful with details that I bet a 10 year old could install this motherboard. Loving the sleek and smooth design with the color changing lights. Plenty of ports for anything and everything you would need. Installing the drivers and utilities are a breeze once your PC is up and running. 10/10 love MSI!!

AMAZING Yet Simple Motherboard

Pros: -The Bios is very easy to use and is not confusing, especially to new builders
-All the connections are in easy to reach places
-Simple yet great design
-The motherboard is very sturdy and feels expensive
-It comes with a USB 3.1 GEN2 type-C connector
-It has 5 total of USB ports
-The manual is very specific and detailed when it explains where all the connections for cpu, fans, gpu. ram, etc belong

Cons: -The lights aren't the brightest

Overall Review: I got this motherboard for my very first build and I had no experience in PC building besides watching a couple of YouTube tutorials and this motherboard was so great for my first build.

The manual was detailed yet simple for beginners which in turn made it easy for me to set up all the multiple connections from the cpu cooler, the gpu, power supply, etc.

The motherboard is also great for cable management because almost all of the connections are in easy to reach places.

Another positive is that the case came with multiple fan headers which was great for my build because I was going for positive pressure to keep dust out and this motherboard allows me to connect 3 intakes and 2 out takes.

Booted up first time, flawless since

Pros: Simple installation. Fast with a 6-core Intel CPU and stock fan. Installed it into an Antec Sonata II purchased several years ago. All assembly went easy.

Cons: Only "con" is that the PC can't be started with the main power switch that turns on a desk lamp, the monitor and printer. No biggie.

Overall Review: About eight years ago, I built the wife a PC that had a cheap ECS board with an Intel 6300 dual core CPU, 4GB RAM. Windows7 Pro64 was her OS. Her setup had developed a few issues... so I decided to upgrade hardware and OS to Win10 Pro64. She put it off because not being a techie, she didn't want to relearn and re-setup everything. It couldn't have been simpler. I copied her old c:\ drive to a fast SSD, installed it in her old PC. Installed Win10Pro64 over her Win7 installation, saving all settings and the desktop. Then I put the new SSD in her soon to be new PC with this mobo, 16gb RAM, and a premium EVGA modular power supply. No video card was moved, I used the one on the new MSI mobo. Sucker fired right up first time, has been working flawlessly since! All her passwords were saved, favorite sites to browse to, so on. Not even a hiccup so far.

Very good board at a bargain price

Pros: Inexpensive, really well made, it just works. A few minor issues below.

Cons: I haven't done a build in about a year, and initially found the BIOS to be confusing. It powered my Ballistix RAM at 1.2 volts and ran it at 2800, when it was rated at 1.5 volts and 3200. Took a while to figure out where to set that.

Also, this is the first BIOS I've dealt with that doesn't "fall through" the boot order. Normally, I would set my DVD drive as first boot, USB as second, and the NVME as third. But when I do that, if there's no boot CD/DVD, and no boot USB stick, the thing errors out at boot with a 'no bootable device available'. If I want to boot from the NVME without my intervening, I have to set that as first boot choice. Perhaps I'm doing something wrong, but I have five year old machines here which deal with that correctly. Now if I want to boot from, say, a USB stick, I have to push F11 after the BIOS beep to bring up the boot menu, a bit of an inconvenience. I wanted to knock off half an egg for that, but since I can't, one egg it is.

The cons are relatively minor, and may or may not be my fault for not doing enough research, so don't let them sway you from this board, which is otherwise very good.

Overall Review: I bought this elsewhere on sale, and I was able to pick it up locally. The board is well made, with a decent manual and every other manufacturer of boards should note this: IT CAME WITH TWO NVME MOUNTING SCREWS for the two NVME sockets. It's not that difficult, and yet hardly anyone else does that. I'm running the Core i7-8700 with a Noctua cooler, 16Gb of Ballistix 3200 RAM, a 250GB WD Black NVME and Win10 Pro.

I moved a Win7 Pro installation Samsung SSD over to it, got it to boot (yes, it can be done, and quite easily - Google is your friend), then immediately installed Win10 Pro, booted from that, then cloned the SSD to the WD Black NVME. Worked like a charm.

The best motherboard yet!

Pros: This is such a great motherboard, and there are so many details to back that up. for example the LED in it is so decorative and the amount of design that goes into the board is astounding. I also love the PCI-E steel armor that keeps it from falling or drooping. The DDR4 boost is also Very amazing. I Love the extended heat sink design too. The last thing I love is that it is made by MSI. MSI motherboards are built to last and are the 1st choice I make when I am buying PC parts.

Cons: There literally are none.

Overall Review: overall, this motherboard is amazing and works like a charm. I definitely recommend buying this motherboard.

Pre-Build Comment (Will update once built)

Pros: Looks like it was advertised.

Cons: Processor guard / cover / thing was loose in the sealed packaging, but the actually processor bay is secured in place like it's supposed to be. Must be a manufacturing error. Pins look okay and otherwise the board looks fine, but the delivery has left me very anxious about this build.

Overall Review: Going to update this review as I go, just wanted to get my immediate thoughts down.

This review format is weird and limiting.
