3 reviews for MSI Z170A GAMING M5 LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX Intel Motherboard

  1. 5 out of 5

    :

    I recommend this product for anyone that is new to overclocking and doesn’t know a lot about over clocking and playing around in the BIOS.

  2. 4 out of 5

    :

    The F20 BIOS update changed the SATA controller options from AHCI/RAID to AHCI/Rapid Storage Technology which had some trouble finding my RAID array. Eventually got it to find it but not sure why it broke.

  3. 4 out of 5

    :

    The only – I mean only – issue I could find is that fan speed vs. temp profiles cannot be adjusted from Windows as the Command Center software intends. I has to do so in the BIOS, which requires a little more manual effort. Big deal.
