This was a Machine for my personal use at home for gaming and low end Video Publishing.
Initially I heard that AMD hadn't updated their Bios to support memory over 2400mhz so that is what I bought ....my mistake within weeks all that changed so If I was you I would go 3200mhz . MSI claims that they you can use up to 4000mhz memory on this board....but for me 3200mhz is the sweet spot for most bang for your buck for my needs.
Also Be sure to get a Monitor with at least 144Mhz listed, AMD freesync compatible, and 1ms ....bought a monitor that said it was a gaming had to return it ....looking to buy a Optix G27C2 in the near future.
Love getting this much power in my CPU for under $300. Was able to OC it to 3.9 stable with just the Wraith Spire that came with the CPU.
This Motherboard has so many options. It is best to know what it comes with ....If I had known about the M.2 SSD turbo options. I would have made a different decision about my boot drive. Also with the ability to up grade in the future with extra memory slots up to 64 GB and ability to go crossfire if you need too. Plus the Graphics PCI port is fortified to make sure the heavier video boards like mine do not end up bending the PCI port making it loose and unresponsive in the future. Easy to use Bios if your not a Super wiz....can give you added power without being a total number cruncher on the OC.
good solid Memory.
Love these new SSDs great way to rewrite you Operating system without losing years of Data.
Good solid Data storage.
Not as much as I initially thought I was getting Graphics wise.....but the coolest package ever for a Graphics Board. When someone's going to put a Pentigram on my Graphics board...yep I am going to buy it...lol. May need to sacrifice a goat to make sure I am getting the most out of this board. jk.
Great, roomy, easy to install all my devices....only thing I was looking for was a bay for my optical drive...just bought a usb to sata cord and bought a lil black cover...so when I need it I just plug it in...but I guess I am just too old school...still want a 1.44 drive lol....the rest of the layout was great with lots of tie down spots and just enough holes in just the right places and just the right sizes to get all my cables where they needed to go with out looking like a cuthulu possession. Everything is now snug and locked down and allowed me great areas to use my LEDs to light the Motherboard and other devices especially my Red Devil's Pentigram and give me viewing pleasure of all my sweet toys.
Great, durable, well made and enough power for my hungry Rx 580 Red Devil Graphics Board at a Gold rated power usage.
"It's Alright?"......yes, Frankenfurter...you still need a better brain in your golden speedo wearing monster.
Excellent Connect-ability compromise so I didn't need to run a Lan cable upstairs to my Den.
Nice ease of use and at a excellent bargain.
