Default MSI X370 XPower Gaming Titanium Review Comment Thread

As one of the most expensive X370's on the market, MSI XPower Gaming Titanium has a lot to live up to but does it have the overclocking and benchmarking chops to keep up?

I had their z170 Titanium and loved that board.

There's something a bit off about this one for $400 CAD though. It's pretty much inferior to the TaiChi yet $100 more seems crazy.

My System Specs

Default

Their M Power and previous X Power boards were pretty much bulletproof. They had decent BIOSes, relatively useful fan control (unlike Gigabyte), above average VRMs, and a very good if not great feature set.

Pricey? Yes, worth it? Likely.

This board has been much maligned over on Overclock.net because it doesn't have good overclocking VRM quality, and they've secretly put out a second mini revision to this board to compensate with slightly improved power delivery components. But it seems like a very pretty, but rushed X370 product.

Even their Tomahawk Z270 Arctic (which I have) has better VRMs for a CPU that doesn't even require as much power as a Ryzen 1700 and above to OC. Tsk Tsk.

Alternatively they do offer a local (to GTA) Canadian RMA, but so does Asus, and the Prime X370 Pro is a better board than this for nearly $175.00 LESS CDN and has similar VRM quality to the Crosshair VI.

Good review though Mac.
