Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not just another MSI board! Well where to start, I know this is a review of a MSI motherboard. First of all I would like to comment on the buying experience. I have used SCAN a few times and just need to say, That I ordered this on a Friday evening. It was sent out on saturday, due for delivery on Monday. However to my joy I got an email Sunday morning that it was out for delivery! So Sunday was a day spent replacing my old motherboard out for this beast. Right on with my review of the Z270 Gaming M7. First impressions when opening the box, where 'my god, when is some company going to change these anti-static bags'? Lets face it, these days you get a power supply in a fake velvet bag! Anyway the board, first impression are. It looks aggressive just in your hands, also the other thing that hits you is the amount of metal reinforcement. Not only are all 3 pci x 16 slots surrounded, but the ram slots are too! The angular plastic shrouds that cover the most part of the motherboard, are black matte with led's. What has impressed me the most, is the m.2 bays of which there are 3! (just more slots to fill) These can be run in raid 0, as if they need to run any faster? Not to sure about the m.2 cover, I'm still undecided of or if there will be any benefit to temps? The board support 2 way SLI or 3 way CROSSFIRE, SLI bridge is included in the box (standard). which brings me on to the contents of the box. 4 sata cables, sli bridge, driver cd and manuals. oh and a MSI badge. Only time will tell whether I made the right choice of board, but first impression are good. I never have been one for overclocking , even though I have a full custom water loop. However this board has a dial on it, that does it all for you! AMAZING. All the mystery of overclocking gone in the twist of a knob. Go on buy it, you know your gonna.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Motherboard available in January 2017 MSI Z270 Gaming M7 – one of the best motherboards money can buy nowadays. Based on the latest Intel Chipset Z270, it provides 4 DDR4 Slots, which support the staggering 64GB of Ram Memory, meaning that even the most memory hungry application will run without any issues. The motherboard also comes with support for the latest generation of Intel® Core™ processers, giving you the boost you need when you need. On the other hand, it still supports the previous 6 generation Intel ® Core™ processors, giving you the ability to upgrade from your old LGA 1151 motherboard to this one, without spending more money. Bundled with SSD and overclocked Intel® Core™ i7 7700k @ 5.2Ghz, will provide unmatched performance both in gaming and in heavy applications. Another advantage of this motherboard is the m.3 shield, which is designed to reduce the heat which is produced by the SSD memory, thus improving the overall performance of the product. If you are lucky enough to purchase your new motherboard before 5th February 2017, you will be up for a treat as MSI will give you a free 256GB Intel® Series 6 SSD drive! This is not everything, you can also get a free copy of Ubisoft`s latest game – “For Honor” RRP - £40, even before it is released on the market. If you are hardcore gamer you can use the 3x PCIe x16 slots to install your favorite video graphics card, boosting your overall experience to the maximum level.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great motherboard On opening the box my initial impressions for this motherboard are that it is well made and has a solid feel. I like the gun metal look, which is a bit different to standard black or white options, but is still neutral enough to suit most builds. For those who want to customise the look there is the rgb lighting. For me, one of the main advantages of the motherboard over other brands is the number of internal usb headers. I have a number of devices that use these, so having two usb 2.0 and two usb 3.0 headers was a big plus. It also has a usb 3.1 header and three m.2 slots for future expansion. I also liked the audio specs. Overall this motherboard has a solid feature and software set that make it a great all round package.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing motherboard. For the past of 20 years I’ve been having many Intel and AMD motherboards. I have recently upgraded from Z170 motherboards. I had 2 Gigabyte and 1 ASUS. I really liked them but I wanted to see what is different on z270. Well, on the first look not much but... The new chipset gives you access to new Intel Optane technology and more PCI-E lines. It could be very useful for anyone who is using multi GPU set ups and M.2 drives at the same time. On MSI M7 are 3 Turbo M.2 PCI-E x4 Gen3 up to 32Gb/s and M.2 shield (!) to prevent overheating- great idea for the M.2 drive under the graphics card. Build quality is outstanding and you can really feel it is a high quality motherboard. There are shields on all PCI-Ex16 and memory slots. Power section is very good (8+2+1 phase design), memory section is fully isolated for better overclocking. Yeah, overclocking... It looks that MSI Gaming M7 is build for that. It can be done in BIOS (btw in my opinion MSI BIOS is the best one, even better than Asus or Asrock and way better than Gigabyte), using Command Centre or Game Boost knob (8 different presets) on the motherboard (no need to go to BIOS to overclock CPU!). Nice and easy. I used to use i5 6600K. No matter what I’ve done I couldn’t go beyond 4.4 GHz. On MSI M7 I used the same CPU, memory etc. and I was able to reach 4.8 GHz fully stable with easy. It reached even 5GHz (!?) but Prime95 was crashing. Sweet. There is also a significant improvement to sound card (Audio Boost 4) thanks to new Realtek ALC 1220. I am not a big fan of integrated sound cards but this one is really good - close to my Sound Blaster Z. There are 2 (yes TWO!) sound cards with amps. It is possible to watch or listening something on the speakers and play games using headphones in the same time. Crazy. MSI M7 is a very good looking motherboard. Mate black and (all!) heat sinks have RGB LEDs (RGB Mystic Light): 7 colours and 5 effects. If this is not enough you get RGB LED extension cable 80cm. There are also very useful onboard LEDs: EZ debug LEDs, XMP, fan etc. One quick look gives information about status of every important component. The debug code LED after the system has fully booted into the OS displays current CPU temperature. Love it! There is also new USB 3.1 internal connector (Gen2 Type-C), U.2 ports, USB Flashback+ to restore corrupted BIOS etc. Are they any cons? Well, yes - it not cheap but it is an amazing motherboard with tons of features. Fully recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent product Its been a few years since I last built a PC and was astonished at the quality of this board. At the moment combined with the free 256gb intel M2 SSD it represents outstanding value for money. I really can't recommend it enough. Grab yourself a bargain while the promotion is still on!
