MSI have really put thought into the layout of connectors on motherboard, with beautiful matt black finish with a neat looking MSI Dragon. Manual easy to follow, not that I needed it much. Bios also easy to configure with my i5 6600k CPU, which I overclocked to 4.4. Lots of space for my CPU heat sink and fan. Great feature is the Killer E2500 Ethernet port with great bundled software. Amazing sound quality from the new Realtek ALC1220 audio codec and gold plated audio jacks. I love the mystic light sync features you can control RGB lighting on the motherboard. Overall I have nothing to complain about has given me no issues and very stable.

MSI Gaming M5 Z270 board. Good Solid Gaming Board
A fantastic gaming board! All the functions you require, with plenty of options for additional fans, and water pump. Great looking with nice onboard lighting, and an onboard temp. display.
If I had any negatives, it would be that the software came on a CD, it would have been good to have it on an USB stick, as with this new build I've decided not to have an optical drive. (I had to copy it on my old machine).
