Reviews
MSI Z270I GAMING PRO CARBON AC, Intel Z270, S 1151, DDR4, SATA3, M.2 (PCIe/SATA), GbE/WiFi, USB 3.1 Gen2 A+C, Mini ITX is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality motherboard very well built. I built many PC's in my time I have to say this motherboard is one of the best on the market for a borderline advanced OC Motherboard. The MSI Z270i Motherboard in my opinion is one of the best boards out there on the market for what it gives to the user and the cost of it which makes it beneficial for investors of a decent PC. Within the BIOS of the motherboard the amount of options within the overclocking and the user interface provide a advanced experience allowing fully customization clocking on all the hardware. The quality of the build is clean and sturdy with decent soldering done to components and with a clean traditional MSI black colour scheme in which I particularly like. Not only does it allow the user to go into much depth within over clocking but it also allows beginners to overclock with a automatic OC preset which will identify the hardware and calculate what OC can be done to it, having tested it out it works extremely well but could use some tweaking here and there apart from that I have nothing to complain about. It is a well built PC that game or PC enthusiasts would enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Mini-ITX for money avaliable Bought this motherboard for a gaming build inside a node 202 case. My requirements included a chipset that supported easy overclocking and RAID 1. SOFTWARE The board features an intuitive bios and control center software. a RAID set up was hassle free taking no time at all, windows 10 installed onto the new array without any additional drivers needed. HARDWARE The design of the board is very premium looking and includes every possible IO you could want on a board of this size. The inclusion of a usb type c port is also a welcome addition. PERFORMANCE This board gives you lots of expandability when it comes to upgrading your mini-itx build; There is a double CPU power plug for extreme overclocking along with a slew of advanced OC features in the bios. Very happy with my choice and I'll be sure to stick to MSI for future products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product with only 1 annoying problem Overall a great board and would recommend. Its handled overclocking my 7700k to 4.8GHz so far without a sweat and motherboard temps are great. All the headers are close to each other making cables neat to bunch together for awesome aesthetics. MSI software is always great to have especially Gaming apps gaming colours mode which I found always makes games look more vibrant. Only annoyance I've found is when plugging in system fan 1 there's a small connector from the gigabit port that connects to the motherboard, this overlaps the fan connector so make sure you have some tweezers to unplug this connector, plug in the fan header then plug the small connector back in.
