PUSH YOUR SSD EVEN HARDER WITH TURBO M.2
Delivering speeds up to 32Gb/s using Gen3 x4, Turbo M.2 is more than 5 times faster than a regular SATA III connection! Enjoy a blazing fast system boot up and insanely fast loading of applications and games with MSI motherboards.

Next generation M.2
Turbo M.2 is the successor to M.2 10 Gb/s, offering 3 times more performance up to 32 Gb/s using Gen3 x4. M.2 is packed in a small form factor and is compatible with 3 different sizes to fit most storage solutions. All latest generation Intel® based MSI motherboards feature Turbo M.2 storage.

FAST STORAGE WITH SATA EXPRESS
SATA Express introduces a new solution in high speed storage through PCI-Express, providing more bandwidth for the latest generation SSDs up to 10 Gb/s.

OPTIMIZED FOR MULTIPLE GRAPHICS CARDS
With a large number of PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slots for every MSI motherboard, you get to choose optimal placement for your graphics cards for better fitting and airflow up to Quad SLI/CF. That way, you can enjoy the best graphics at the highest framerate jumping off from your screen when running a NVIDIA® SLI™ or AMD CrossFire™ setup.

OC ENGINE
Run into unstable situations when pushing your CPU to the limit? This occurs because the internal clocks are linked through the 100 MHz BCLK strap. Thanks to a integrated Clock Generator, MSI motherboards support more flexible BCLK adjustments, from 100 / 125 / 167 MHz straps.
Using these straps prevents system crashing while overclocking on the edge and opens doors to achieve the absolute maximum. The MSI X99 motherboards all come with the next generation Clock Generator offering even lower jitter and power consumption resulting in even higher stability under extreme conditions.

MILITARY CLASS 4
Military Class 4 is the next step in high quality components. The Dark Choke and Solid CAP will make sure that your PC runs more stable under extreme gaming conditions.

SUPER FERRITE CHOKES
uper Ferrite Chokes use a Ferrite core that is Super-Permeable. This allows the Super Ferrite Chokes to run at a 35 degree Celsius lower temperature, have a 30% higher current capacity, a 20% improvement in power efficiency and better overclocking power stability.

SOLID CAP
With their aluminum core design and Japanese made quality, Solid CAPs are made for high-end design motherboard. Not only do Solid CAPs could provide lower Equivalent Series Resistance (ESR), but also work firmly for over-10-year.

CIRCUIT PROTECTION
Carefully selected materials, multiple PCB layers and shielding result in the best circuit protection for our motherboards.

Reviews
Rated 4 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great for the price I recently bought one of these to go with my 5820k, I think for an entry level x99 board it is quite good and considerably cheaper than a lot of other boards with similar features however it does have 2 minor problems for me which is why I gave it 4/5. 1) The BIOS that comes with it is quite old so when you first build your pc you might run into the problem I had where it doesn't recognise all of your memory, in my case it only detected 12gb of the 16gb I put into it and failed to POST when the fourth stick was added. After the hassle of going through each stick individually to verify that none of my memory was bad, manually flashing the BIOS to the latest one on the MSI site and trying alternative DIMM slot combinations I just went ahead and installed windows anyway with just 12gb being detected. The MSI Live Update 6 software that comes with it then updated a huge number of features of the board and it miraculously decided to boot correctly and detect my fourth stick of memory, it was annoying at first but at least MSI are aware of it and the updates will solve the problem. 2) It has no PCI slots only PCIe slots, for people with modern expansion cards (or that read the specs more carefully before buying) this wont cause much of a problem but I use an old E-MU PCI sound card with external audio dock for recording so I'm left looking for an adapter or a new sound card. Overall if you don't want to pay a ridiculous amount for a motherboard but you still want easy overclocking and M2/USB 3 functionality for your x99 system this is a good solid board with a nice all black colour scheme that will suit most system builds. 11 December 2015
