    from completed build My First Gaming Rig

    Well balanced motherboard for gaming, Simple design with strong feature set.

    • Easy to overclock i7-9700K and voltage regulator cooling is also good for overclocking. Look for Overclocking guide on msi website or just press Game Boost button in Bios and all set

    • XMP overclocking is also good. I am able to hit up to 3060mhz on 3000 mhz Memory

    • I love the no of RGB and ARGB headers, i have build a beautiful RGB system, check the pics

    • Well Using MSI RTX 2070 Super with this MB and i must say it works really well, overclocking also working as expected, hitting at 1980 mhz with 100% power with Dragon center app

    • I did not see System temperature goes higher than 62-63 degree temp, tested with MSI Kombustor and GPU Z stress testing for more than 30 mins

    • With 100Mbps connection and On Board WIFI i am able to hit 93.7 Mbps with 5 GHz frequency which is highest among all other devices, and the best part is it has MU-MIMO support

    • 5 Fan headers included which is easy to configure with PWM/DC step-up and down based on the CPU/system temperature, CPU AIO Pump header is really good addition, this configuration makes the system silent and cool. Balance approach to keep system cool and silent both with good performance from all the components.

    Conclusion:

    • Good MB at this prize

    • Easy overclocking with Game boost for entry level gamer, overclocking potential is good

    • System stays cool under load

    • Good wifi card onboard

    • Happy to have AIO pump header

    Flawless. Excellent VRM thermals and stability, even with 5.0ghz overclock on i9 9900k, at a very good price.

    Overall is a very nice motherboard that I hope to keep for years to come and upgrade around. 2x TURBO M.2, usb-c and built in wifi making it an all around great first and lasting motherboard choice. Only small concern was MSI website is not as streamlined as I am used to for updates.

    Very nice motherboard for the price. Offers RGB and has more than enough fan ports. The backlit RGB offers nice features as well. Also have had no problems with the Mystic Light software.

    I love it, great easy to use MSI bios. Supports essentially every type of RAM. 1 star taken off only because the pins (specifically USB 3.0 pins) were so easily bent. However it was also super easy to unbend, so we're both lucky.

    from completed build 2080 Super Silver & Black Clean

    MSI MPG Z390 EDGE AC Not much to say about this one, it does the job and MSI's BIOS interface is easy to navigate. LGA1151 ready. Tons of fan headers. Multiple USB 3.1's. Onboard wifi and bluetooth. Really easy to build on for a first time builder.

    from completed build Future-Proof Budget Build

    Great Motherboard, I needed a Z390 for the I7 9700k and Wifi, but nothing special aside from that. This fit the bill perfectly. BIOS was no issue and the RGB is subtle but a nice touch.

    from completed build Gaming v2.0

    Good motherboard, had everything that I needed and the bios is a pleasure to use. Its reinforced PCI-E Steel Armor combined with the case means I am seeing little to no sag on my card.

    Great board, no problems so far. The extra 4-pin helps with overclocking, but i'm not pushing my system too far. Wish it had more system fan and argb headers.
