    My old motherboard died and was no longer available. After looking into many different replacements decided to swap from my old i5 to the new Ryzen CPUs. Went with this board and have not been disappointed. It was easy to install with plenty of room for everything and clear labeling/arrangement on the board itself. Performance has been great and it looks gorgeous. Highly recommend for anyone with or looking to switch to Ryzen. Previously had dealt mainly with Asus and EVGA products. This was my first MSI product and it won't be my last.

    Its MSI, I really like this company because they build really good hardware. I currently have it paired with my Ryzen 5 2600x , Its really good. I has a great system for overclocking. The bios is simple and user friendly. There's really no negatives you can give this board other then to add more lighting I guess lol but the lighting it does have is really nice looking. Also red and black scheme looks beautiful as always.

    Have had this motherboard for a few months and it’s worked pretty great other than what just happened. I’m using the ryzen 7 with the stock heat sink (which is a little heavy) and one of the brackets on the motherboard holding the heat sink down snapped from the continuous pressure causing my heat sink to fall off of the cpu. Currently waiting for replacement brackets that come in the mail. Hopefully my cpu is ok.

    Great mother board for DIY building

    The mother board is small and compact, but it still has all the abilities to adapt to some higher parts. it supports over cloaking, and it has a steel casing. the only down side though was attaching the CPU fan, because the screw couldn't reach the holes made for them. but over all it is great for the price and its build quality!

    This is the ultimate board for a gtx sli setup . It provides for huge memory capacity that is demanded for optimal use with Ryzen processors. I have an sli setup of two 1070s running on an 2700 Ryzen 5 and it has been amazing performances on windows 10 for gaming and work.

    So far it's working great. I decided on this board for my newest build. I love that it has two M.2 slots. I'm currently using both. It has all of the newest connections and sockets. Using it with an AMD Ryzen 7 CPU, 4 G Skill Trident Z RGB 8gb DDR4 RAM.

    This mobo does its job. Only problem I ran in to is the top pci e slot has the reinforcement. Kept losing signal. May not have had gpu in correctly, but ended up moving it to middle slot and no issues since.

    Not bad for the price, overclocking seems a breeze and everything I have is compatible, booted first time. Memory oc'd as well, used corsair xpd 3200s at 3400 speeds atm. No problems.

    Decent motherboard and looks nice. the only thing that i didnt like was that they advertise the lighting effects but the effects are subpar. one little corner of the motherboard lights up, thats it
