X670E board at a solid price, even below some B650E boards prices Solid USB port count and support PCI-E 5.0 on both NVME and x16 Board bandwidth between lanes minimally shared allowing high compatibility Solid build quality Easy to work with Highly compatible for future upgrades on the living AM5 platform Good power delivery Minimal LEDs (Only system test information LEDs on board)
If you like LEDS on your mobo this won't meet your needs (Personally bought it because it isn't flashy) BIOS that came on board crashed when using EXPO (Updating to latest beta BIOS fixed this) No BIOS reset jumper included requiring use of a screwdriver to reset BIOS Long start up times if you don't configure BIOS settings correctly
A great X670E board with a price point that doesn't hurt the bank wanting the X670E features. Build quality is solid, easy to work with, and placement of connections on the board allow for easy cable management. The boards bandwidth isn't shared in a limiting manner allowing a lot of PCI-E, NVME, and SATA connections without loss of performance or loss of specific usage. The onboard LEDs for system test information such as CPU, Memory status allows for easy start up diagnosis or BIOS configuration issues. The only issues with the board I had encountered were regarding the shipped BIOS and start up times without setting particular settings in the BIOS. EXPO would crash when enabled though the fix was easy enough by updating to the latest beta BIOS. I don't see this as a major issue though as when building a PC I believe it's best practice to update to the latest BIOS so long as there are no reported issues with a particular version. After updating the system recognized the EXPO settings and operated correctly. To fix the start up times which were about 40 seconds default, enable PowerDownEnable, Memory Context Restore, and A-XMP. After setting these the average boot time from off to W11 desktop usable was on average 9-10 seconds. For it's price point, especially on sale being under $350 this board is an absolute steal. The compatibility this board has will allow for long usage with the growing AM5 platform facilitating simple part swap outs through its life, saving money over the lifetime of the system. I'd highly recommend this motherboard to anyone looking to build a AM5 system with upgrade capabilities over the years.

I did not have any trouble with this boqrd at all, everything works so well and the installation was very easy.
The only thing was it does not have fancy lights on it but that not a big deal because my card and ram and fans have light already. The only thing was it did not detect my m.2 drive so I found a video on YouTube and it got fix really fast.
So I am happy with the board and it seem everything works great on it and I love how sturdy it feels; unlike my gigabyte board that I had.

- Great bang for your buck for a x670e board. Has no RGB and none of the extra unnecessary baggage. Perfect for people like myself who value functionality over aesthetics. - Updating the BIOS was a breeze, no issues so far. Haven't encountered any of the issues regarding the AMD SOC voltage problems with this motherboard. I have had EXPO enabled (using trident neo 64 GB currently with 6000 mhz) for several weeks now with no issues so far. - Construction of the motherboard appears to be solid, no complaints there at all.
- Had to take things apart just to find the CHK number to register for warranty after the PC was already fully assembled. Wish there was a easier way to get the number (or was informed beforehand that we'd need it). - Detaching large graphics cards (I'm using a 4090) from their slots can be a real pain. Had to use the end of a pen to do so. I wish there were easer ways of doing this...
So far I'm pretty happy overall with the motherboard. This is my first MSI motherboard (previously used ASUS exclusively and got burned badly by them from my last ASUS purchase), Haven't encountered any problems yet with this motherboard so seems very promising. I'm looking forward to sticking with MSI in the future if this keeps up.
