Great review Guv. Those BIOS problems are pretty much on par with all the hell I had with my X370 Carbon on the original BIOS as well. I'd hope for MSI's sake, it won't take 6 months to sort this board out like it has done for mine.

Great review Tom and we can always depend upon you to give an unbiased opinion, just wish Msi would get their S**T together as it's really letting down an otherwise reasonable product.

Nice review Tom , i understand that the rapid development of new board and socket for this platform has put immense pressure on manufacturer to get there high end products to market , but since its is for the higher end , you would like to think they thoroughly test them before releasing a flawed bios, rather than waiting for a reviewer such as yourself to point out the flaws .

The new BIOS actually makes it pretty decent, Id say the only flaw now is the VRM heatsink. I just hope that beta BIOS gets put on the website ASAP now

Any chance of a quick head up if that NH-U14S TR4 (I'm presuming that what it is and not the U12) cooler clears both the first PCIE slot and the VRM heatsink? CPU Cooler is the last thing I need for my upgrade.
