Nothing. Memory Express techs, yes techs x3, recommended this board on cost vs features telling me it is a great mainboard, I should have done some homework first. I haven’t had so many problems with a mainboard since I started building PCs in the 80s. This board will not post on either of its display ports, even with the BIOS at the latest firmware version. The only way I can get it to display anything during setup of my system is to use a low end GPU with a vgaport. Once I get it setup, then I can put in my higher end GPU. The two onboard display ports, useless. Change any hardware of significance or build a new OS to boot from, back to the low end GPU with VGA until you get the OS up. Good thing I saved them the old cards and monitors. I am not the only one, There are loads of blog posts on the MSI site about these display port issues. Promox experts recommend not to even consider this piece of junk. .
I’ve always had decent recommendations from Memory Express but on this one they really led me astray, probably to clean out stock. So choked. They shouldn’t even carry it, no techs would be able to recommend it then. First one was also DOA, a hassle all in itself, I should have requested a different board to replace it right then. Maddening. Avoid the frustrations, do not buy
Junk, do not buy.

Features with reasonable price Overall performance Wireless functions are included 4 x m.2
I had to update drivers to activate wifi and lan features. (You may need another computers or to download drivers in a USB/external drive before you build a pc using this motherboard)
It's a really good deal for intel 12 Gen CPUs users. It's Z690 motherboard under $300 which has 4 m.2 and Wifi/Bluetooth. I recommend this model since it has a good value.

I purchased this product on December 27, 2021 based on the reviews/analysis published on Youtube from Buildzoid, Gamers Nexus, and Hardware Unboxed. The consensus seemed to be that for your average person this board offered the best value. It's not cheap, but it's also not "cheap". The Gigabyte UD AX was at a better price point, but I think with not as good VRM (though more rear I/O) and most importantly has a really limited list of verified memory. This board had great memory compatibility, the VRM seems fine, it's got very reasonable rear I/O options. I am tentatively rating this 4/5 stars, since I'm still a little choked by the high price for an entry level product, even though it's the best value of what's available. I'll re-review at 5 stars if everything goes well after installation and the BIOS is usable. This review is for the MSI Review Rebate Program.
