Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for windows not so good for linux The bios on this board is terrible, you wont be able to install Clear linux as the uefi is set for windows 8.1, if the board doesn't like what you have chnged if you use uefi becuse it's not windows it just resets the bios,there was no way to switch of the wifi from the bios which causes problems on installs for some operating systems, the board really is only suited to windows, If you are a linux user you might want to only install Ubuntu usingf the non uefi mode. On a good note the board has lots of features the delivery was ontime and you get notified of your time slot for when you are getting you delivery which is very handy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good I can't really fault this mobo(had for around a month now). Very easy and clear to use and setup. Plenty of expand ability with the dual m.2 slots etc. Also nice having the clear error lights if anything is wrong. I would buy again. Only downfall is the RGB lights are a bit basic and it is hard to link with iCue but I wasn't expecting much :D
Date published: 2019-12-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent motherboard Its not a case that this is an excellent motherboard for the money, its an excellent motherboard. An all core 5Ghz on a 9900k and 3600Mhz DDR4 XMP achieved with ease. Powerful on board Wifi Plenty of fan connectors that are easily adjustable in an easy to navigate Bios. Plenty of power through the VRM's that also run cool. Good on board audio. Fast boot up times Easy to use flash utility Msi lighting is also easy to customise. An angled USB 3.0 front panel connector improving visuals in a windowed case. Short of a couple more USB slots and a M2 heatsink I cant complain. Even saying that, a USB hub and third party RGB M2 Heatsink are so cheap its still an absolute bargain. Top marks to MSI.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing design and high performance. The company MSI again show us it's possible to create good value motherboard with amazing gaming design, comfortable port mounting and performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Motherboard I am currently using this motherboard in a high spec set up, absolutely brilliant for an overclocked 9th Gen Intel system.

8+4 pin CPU power connector

My power supply only has one 8 pin power connector would it still power up this board using just the 8 pin or do i need an 8+4 connector PSU
Asked by: Birdy88
The additional 4 pin is for serious CPU power / overclocking. IE i9 OC. The 8 pin is adequate for most users.
