Cheapest ATX motherboard that is compatible with 3200mhz ram at the time I purchased (I believe I paid under $150 CAD tax, and shipping included). I made sure to buy memory on MSI's compatibility list, which is 16gb of G.Skill Ripjaws V 3200mhz, but I was getting errors and it would crash during games, so once I turned it down to 2933mhz, I haven't had an issue since. Not too big of an issue, but still shouldn't have that issue if 3200mhz is on their list.
Was easily able to overclock my 1600 up to 4GHz no problem. Even has lots of nice features too.
Beautiful board, although my IO shield did not fit quite as perfectly as I would've imagined.
It has a cool LED lava line type thing running down the side and isn't too expensive for the options it provides for future upgrades. The board was absolutely perfect for the red theme.
This is yet another part I would consider to be too good for its price. It looks awesome and does its job even better. It has many PCI lanes, an interesting USB-C port on the back and some nice flashy LEDs which accentuate the agressive black and red theme even more :P Some things to complain about are the position of the RGB port, which didn't bother me but might bother people with Ryzen 1700s, and the lack of SATA ports (only four in a world where data storage is crucial).
Overclocks like a charm.
So far from my experience this board is great. I wanted the ASUS Rog strix b350 board but I received 2 DOA boards. So I purchased this board. It has nice fan header spots & a nice pump header spot, decent VRMs, very nice clean look, and Overclocks very well. The MSI bios is amazing and very easy to use.
Beware the USB 3.0 hub is sideways and might not be able to fit your usb 3.0 cable in due to tight wiring holes in cases ( I bent the pins and cant use) Also the IO shield is metal with no padding, and only comes with 2 Sata 6GBs cables. Manual is great.
Has red lights on the side, easy to work with and looks amazing for the price. No problems with it as of yet.
No problems with this motherboard, overclocking settings are easy to get to and use. Still playing around with fully overclocking now but so far has been a breeze.
Pretty good motherboard, nice red LED on the corners that go with the rest of the build. BIOS nice and easy to use.
Only criticism is that as a first time builder I had to refer to the manual a lot as pins aren't labelled like you find on other motherboards.
