best mb ever 7/4/2020 4:46:01 PM

Pros: low price, very fast, I have installed Win10 in 6 minutes with USB 3 Key and a M2

Cons: 8+4 power MB, not really a con, but I had to buy a new power supply because I didn't noticed before I bought.

Overall Review: I would definitively recommend this product,
if I had only to change 1 thing, it would be to let go of 2.5gb lan and make it dual 1 gb lan duplex like the z390 tomahawk
2.5 gb lan switch are too pricey anyway

Overall Review: For this price the extra USB ports and fan headers is nice versus other boards in this range. The lack of wifi doesn't bother me as I game wired.

Great Z490 Motherboard 6/26/2020 10:44:05 AM

Pros: Good power design.
Good Thermals.
Great board with great features for the cost.
Love the looks of the board.
No issues with RAM OC.
Dual Ethernet with 1 being 2.5g!!!

Cons: Would have liked to see a bit more lighting.

Overall Review: I have not over-clocked yet but looks like the board will have no issues, temps are great power is stable.

I had ordered an ASRock board and before I installed it, I saw how bad the thermals on the VRM were online (should have researched prior) and decided I was going for another board. After watching reviews I narrowed it down and chose this MSI board and I am glad I did, no disappointments, can't wait to OC and see if I got the "silicon lottery" with my 10700k.

There are plenty of options and goodies on this motherboard that makes it well worth the price.

Z490 MSI TOMAHAWK Motherboard. 6/26/2020 2:20:44 AM

Pros: -Runs gen 10 Intel chip sets!
-2.5G Lan!
-Affordable and great for a budget level to med level gaming pc!
-Great Rebate!

Cons: -

Overall Review: I love this motherboard so far. I will most definitely be recommitting MSI brand from now on instead of my usual Asus and to from Newegg.com where you can find it for less and get it faster than any where else. Newegg was the only store to have it in stock over Best Buy, Micro Center, and every other place that sells MSI motherboards online. I've never worked with MSI before and am very impressed. Great design, excellent features that suite my needs in a pc such as the 2.5g LAN. On top of all of the good things I've experienced in this fun and easy build is the MSI Review Rebate Program. This program allows me to review the product honestly and
possibly revive an extra rebate, while other companies want you to review something and they cl;aim its going into a lottery you'll never hear about again, MSI offers its customers a better product for a lesser price with a rebate. Cheers MSI and Newegg.com you made my build easier, faster, and with less money. 10 out of 10 will buy MSI and from Newegg again.

Affordable yet feature packed! 6/17/2020 11:27:14 AM

Pros: DDR4 4800MHz support
Dual Ethernet adapters (1 and 2.5G ports)
7 rear USB type A ports and 1 USB Type C
M.2 thermal pads on the back of the M.2 Shield FROZR plates
VRM temps stay under control while overclocking (10700k all core 5.3GHz)

Cons: My experience with this board has been flawless. I have no cons to report.

Overall Review: I've been using MSI motherboards in my last 4 builds and recommending their products to my friends for years. MSI motherboards have always been feature packed at a lower cost than their competitors and this board is no different.

The visual design is eye-catching with it's black PCB and silver horizontal accents. The chipset heatsink has a few independently addressable LEDs to shine downward on the board giving it a little pop. The board also has RGB headers so you can power and control LED lighting through one program, MSI Dragon Center. It's a beauty to look at.

MSI's UEFI interface is sleek and easy to navigate. It makes overclocking and managing your system very simple. I was able to get an all core 5.3GHz overclock on my 10700k and have my Patriot Viper Steel 4400MHz CL19 kit running stable @ 3800MHz CL15-15-15-30. Need I say more? This board is a beast.

Other features I'd like to mention:
6x 4-pin case fan connectors and a CPU water pump connector. If you like fans, you can have all the fans!
An extra ATX 12 volt 4-pin power connector for pushing overclocks to the max (with some liquid nitrogen of course)
There is also an integrated DisplayPort on the rear IO which is nice to have as a "just in case."

Specs of my system for this review:
MSI MAG Z490 TOMAHAWK
Intel i7 10700k (Dark Rock Pro 3 keeping it cool)
Patriot Viper Steel DDR4 4400MHz 16GB Kit
2x Inland Professional 1TB M.2 PCIe 4x SSD
EVGA 1080
