Good overall look from the RGB with G.skill memory shows great esthetics. Carbon look to it stands out,
A lot the issues come from this card overheating. If you don't overclock it you wouldn't have an issue. Works well with 5900x. Best value for price hands down. Software is a headache to deal with dragon center says one thing then afterburner says another, I would use Afterburner. Most hot it got was 75 degrees, if you don't overclock.
Overall, Motherboard is quite no issues, got it on for a good price. For the overall, it works. If you get this motherboard plan to upgrade in the future.

This motherboard has great strengths at its price point: -Great memory support, XMP profiles load without issues -Stable board, runs a 3700X like a champion, several hours of heavy gaming and coding, no issues or temp problems -Excellent overall design and clean aesthetics -Power delivery and VRMs are decent, solid heat spreaders -Excellent Ethernet from Intel with solid drivers, great gaming performance -Fantastic Intel AC wireless built in, big overkill antennae, includes Bluetooth 5.0! -OUTSTANDING Audio, strongly amplifies even average gaming headsets to improve quality over older audio chips, excellent power, solid drivers, great sound! -RGB is clean, pleasant and not over the top, works well with the practical carbon fiber accents -BIOS is potent with a lot of features, adjustable GUI fan curves and great tuning capability -Several fan headers -M.2 heat spreaders have thermal pads -Low chipset fan speed and usage with good temps, even sits idle in BIOS!
Concerns are: -Boot times using XMP (DOCP) are a bit slower on initialization, hopefully new BIOS revisions will solve -Top m.2 heat spreader requires pulling graphics card to remove easily, front screws not captive like the rears -USB 3 case header connector location is clean from a visual standpoint, but also places it in a spot where some cases will have a tough time with very narrow room to maneuver! -Dragon Center software needs work, seems to interfere with Ryzen 3000 boosting and fan profiles, hopefully updates improve it -MSI software bundles in Windows 10 could use some improvements, grammatical errors are seen as well -A proper Clear CMOS button at this level of motherboard should be standard in 2019, same for boot codes, you get diagnostic LEDs but this level of board in 2019, again, should have built in boot code LEDs and power reset/switches -VRMs could be a bit more robust at this price point versus the other manufacturers,
A fantastic board, works very well and provides great gaming and production performance, very stable, cool-running and powerful. In-Windows MSI software could use improvements and XMP load times need a bit of work. Chipset fan runs quiet and is of robust design. Excellent Audio, Ethernet and Wireless included for the price MSI online customer center is very nice and solid customer engagement, registration also can include warranty extensions depending on the product. Would purchase from MSI again.
