Impressed with this board, coming from a z490 unify I miss a few features, but the price is about the same and overall its nice to have the option for an igp again, 4 nvme slots are nice! To my surprise dropped in a 14600k and a 2x16gb corsair 7200mhz CL34 kit in and it just works. This must be the easiest motherboard I've used to overclock, ram much to my surprise works at 7400mhz, cpu just runs at pretty much whatever all core you want with the board seemingly getting most auto settings spot on. In my instance 5.8all core just works, 6.0 requires extra voltage and for me isn't worth it but seems almost too easy. Seems to be odd quirks on the per core overclocking settings in the bios, seemingly ignores per core settings and defaults to 5.3 all core when selected, Intel XTU lets me set different multipliers based on core loading allowing me to have 2 cores boosting 6.2 ghz. I'd recommend this board, but I also didn't realise there are 2 versions, i actually bought this after reading tomahawk max reviews not realising there are more variants! Hoping bios updates help with ram stability, a lot of trial on error to get stable, as i said xmp just worked and until I tried y cruncher had no indication it wasn't quite right, I'm sure that's more imc lottery, but after lots of posts saying 6600mhz plus kits don't seem to work well I'm happy with the results Ultimately I think this is a good board, I just wish MSI made figuring out which one you want a lot easier, so many variants of the same board. Can be a bit of a nightmare to figure out what is what.

Great colour scheme and very solid build quality. Perfect for a new blacked out build. Also has new gen features such as DDR5 and Lightning Gen 5 which can be useful. Fast shipping even on a weekend also.

Cracking motherboard. Very difficult to claim the 30 cashback though.

I think this is a great board - four NVME slots - PCIE 5/0 ready - easy to install and set up - BIOS nice and easy to use - MSI are a great brand.

No problems (as of yet!) and everything worked out of the box.

I chose this motherboard as MSI offered a fairly good overall package of ports, I/O and connectivity with this product as Z790 motherboards go, although it's difficult to call any of them more than fair value for money since they are all expensive. I did want a PCI-E 5 GPU slot, at least one USB 3.2 Gen2x2 slot, 2.5Gbps Ethernet, at least four M.2 slots and ideally Wi-Fi 6E, all of which this board delivers on. It's unfortunate that it doesn't have at least one PCI-E 5 M.2 slot, but all of the slots it does have are PCI-E 4, which is still good. It also has multi-channel audio out, which not all boards do around this price point. While other MSI motherboards do improve on many of these specs and offer improved VRM cooling, the additional cost is difficult to justify. It's been reliable in operation so far and has worked as expected. I did once run into a strange bug where the BCLK settings disappeared from the BIOS and didn't come back until clearing the CMOS, but that hasn't recurred so far. It's also been pretty good at recovering from bad memory overclocks, nearly always rebooting with safe settings rather than requiring a manual CMOS clear. When that is required, the button on the back panel makes that more convenient than opening up the system. If you're looking for a Z790 board I think this one is about at the sweet spot once you've accepted the already high entry prices, and I don't have any major complaints.

Works fine. Probably a little expensive but I have no complaints after running it for one month.
