Really like the LEDs at the edge of the MOBO; you can change their colour to virtually any colour you want
MOBO looks good with the black and red colour scheme
I'm not a pro by any means, but with this MOBO it's just a one-click "overclock" for various modes such as gaming, OC, etc so that's very neat and convenient
I didn't really care about the number of USB 3.0 ports before purchasing this but while I was setting my PC up, I realised that this comes with six USB 3 (various generations) ports at the back alone
LED on the motherboard, the color. .. are fantastic
The right edge where the LEDs are is yellow in colour. It's like a strip of yellow top down which is, well, absolutely horrendous. It spoils what is otherwise an amazing looking board but then again m
I get better Sound on me same speaker compare to my old motherboard that's not MSI
Very supprized to see a MB with 6 sata III ports with no raid functionality. any memory over 2133Gh will get clocked down to 2133
Little lower
Only has 1 onboard connection for case fan. Power pin connections are a little hard to connect
