MSI Z270 GAMING PRO CARBON, Intel Z270, S 1151, DDR4, SATA3, M.2, 2-Way SLi/3-Way CrossFire, GbE, USB 3.1 Gen2 A+C, ATX is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from looks and works brilliantly this motherboard is beautiful in my setup its got rgb lighting that you control through a downloadable program ez pz. the bios for this motherboard are easy to use. the only draw back about this motherboard is you cant set the rgb to cycle through all the colours like you can on other rgb motherboards.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Feature rich, stable and good looking The UEFI BIOS interface is nice and easy to use. The fan control is superb,you can even set all fans to be off unless a temperature has been reached. Easy to assemble and did not have any issues where the ports are located. The LED lightning is brilliant however you have to install an MSI app to control it. I have not tried to overclock my CPU yet, it is currently rock solid with an Intel Core i7 7700k and 16GB (2x8GB) of DDR4 @ 3000 MHz The motherboard has enough SATA ports for pretty much everyone's needs, My games (Battlefield 1, Resident Evil 7, Fallout 4) all run well too

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking mobo I upgraded from a 2 year old, pretty much featureless mobo so this felt like a MASSIVE improvement, usb 3.0 and gen 2 as well, type C connections and various other stuff like sound improvements and just cool lighting effects, reinforced pcie and ram slots which definitely gave me confidence in its durability and quality. Pairing with an i7 7770k gtx 1080 and 16bg of DDR4 ram this felt like a monsters, absolutely crazy and this felt like the right choice to go for to finally have a great system that will hold me for at least another couple years. Overall its easy to use and packed with features, not exactly enthusiast level but in my opinion someone who just want to plug and play this is great.
