MSI X370 XPOWER Gaming Titanium Preview



The flood of X370 motherboards is coming and the next to come crashing into the OC3D offices is the MSI Titanium, and we give it a quick rundown in anticipation of our upcoming full review.

Crazy as ever Tom. Other reviewers are just not cutting it. They have kinda boring videos. I love your camera. It is making your life so difficult.

Looking forward for a full review. I really like how this board looks. It is really unique. I hope MSI does proper job this time.

This board is screaming out for a S.H.I.E.L.D themed build

Price and dragon. The only two things I do not like about this board.

I don't mind the dragon.

What I do mind is price vs features.. it's nearly identical with everything like the Carbon Pro. And imo that board looks better, but I don't mind the look of this one.

That worries me to. It is even more expensive than CH6, and yet it has less features. And MSI doesn't have that good reputation to justify the high price. Apart from the unique look I don't see their idea for the high price.

We should w8 for the reviews to come out to have more clear picture.

On a board this price there shouldn't be any stupid dragons. Just my opinion of course. I mean, I don't think Asus had much trouble selling Rampage and Rampage Black boards.

But when you add something even slightly tacky to a board costing this much you bring it down.

Not looked into the features yet but my days of spending £350 on a motherboard are well and truly over. I'm quite glad that the 350 boards are the best looking, as that may be where I get mine from

I really like this MB but considering price and my view on MSI since what they did with the Bios, I'd just go with the CH6

MSI: would not buy, especially at the price. That's a retarded price to pay for a pretty board from a manufacturer that can't hold a candle to the big boys in quality or QA.

TBH I would possibly go back to MSI again for an AM4 board but not because of them. Only because AM4 socket is here for three years which covers the warranty term on some of their boards.

After having a MSI BBXPII X79 die 11 months in only to be told they don't make X79 boards any more so can't really offer me anything I was pretty bloody put off tbh. At least with AM4 they can just give you their latest boards, of which there will probably be many in the three years minimum that AMD have penned out for the socket.
