Default MSI Z270 Gaming M7 Motherboard Review Motherboard Review

The Gaming M7 sits near the top of MSI's Z270 motherboard lineup and it has the features to match a premium price. But how does it match up against the better-entrenched competition?

Wow. Didn't read the whole review yet but in terms of look I certainly like that one! Bummer about the odd choice for controlling the LEDs but if off is an option for at most then that would be fine for me. The red only on some is weird.

I haven't had the time to read the review yet, but I did notice the addition of Canadian pricing. I thank you from the bottom of my big red maple leaf!

LOVE that you added the CAD pricing! I'd love to see that on all hardware reviews moving forward. I'm personally a little dissapointed in the lack of decent sound quality, but that can be resolved with a sound card. All in all, pretty happy with the review of both this board and the Carbon. I'll very likely be settling right in the middle on an M5.

I do have to note that I don't understand everyone's fascination with LED's these days? I thought lighting in computers was mostly tacky in the 90's, and IMO, it really hasn't aged well. But I'm on old, grumpy bastard now... so what the hell do I know. >.<!
