Oh my word! Did MSI just release a board I actually want! Kudos to you boys. Tom grab some tins get those accents painted, white with red stripes

You could probably 3d print replacement parts in the color of choice too, can't wait to see if MSI do this same thing with X399

I really do like the ability to customize the heatsink covers much more easily than what's been possible in the past.

Both the 7600k and the 7700k is rated at 91W (Does hypertreading not add heat?)
Do the TDP of 112W for the new kabylake-x hint a higher OC potential? Or does it not work that way

MSI might be on track with this one. I think Kabby Lake X is complete waste of time and money on X299 platforms. You can't use half of the functions of the boards.

(Based on the assumption that they wont go and make a v3 socket in 2 years) (But they probably will)

It can actually make sense. Buy a expensive MB and a 7740k now, and then a 10-18 core CPU later.

Liking the looks, good looking specs! Can't wait to see the full review and am especially curious about the BIOS.

KBL-X makes no sense, not in any universe but one: if sold as a pure overclocking part to break world records and stuff. Definitely the black sheep of the Basin Falls X299 family.

I really hope BIOS engineers have got that voltage sorted out. MSI has become famous for overdoing voltage. They should overdo some other thing instead of that.

Hmm indeed. I feel in safer hands with Asus.
