Write a review for: MSI Z270 GAMING PRO CARBON LGA1151 Intel Z270 DDR4 ATX
Great looking board
This motherboard has looks to die for with a carbon fibre styling and the r.g.b led it will go with any build the r.g.b out is fantastic when connected to an led strip and you can light up your build far cheaper than an alternative if you had to get a control box to go with it the bios and apps are great for easy overclocking also this is a great price for a board with the complexity of the rgb led on the board itself plus at the moment you get a free copy of for honour saving you another£40 wich makes it incredible value my next step is to get an msi g.p.u with mystic light r.g.b so my whole build can be synced in r.g.b awesomeness.
Ease of use
Value for money
I love the looks of the motherboard and the rgb lighting is a great feature. I bought this motherboard because I've had many MSI motherboards from different builds. I've never had any issues with them and they seems to work great. Aesthetically, this board looks amazing with the carbon/greyish theme. It definitely fits my other hardware choices beautifully.
Easy to understand manual. Every component was easy to install (doesn't hurt my enclosure is the Corsair Air 540). Has plenty of fan headers throughout.
I've got the 7700K clocked currently at 4.7ghz, with voltage set to 1.30. I've noticed though that the voltage does not exceed 1.276 at this clock speed under heavy load so there's definitely some room there to overclock even more.
All in all, I highly recommend going with this board if you're in the market for a new Kaby Lake build. I've used Gigabyte for years, and I've recently switched over and used MSI for my last couple PC builds now. Everything has been flawless.
