MSI X99S XPOWER AC Review



It's a lengthy all caps review title and that can only mean one thing, the MSI MPOWER is back in the OC3D Bench system.

Great review as always guv, especially the conclusion, which was pretty funny

Its a shame about the stability of this board (yes I read the edit), as it does look really good.

X99 Mpower

Great review shame about the stability was thinking of this or the XPower may still go with it as the Bios will come right soon Im sure and then it will be a Holy Grail board if thats possible.

No comment about the ugly grey wireless module? it's like a mini optical drive hustling in and disrupting the clean. I really wanted to love this board, I think it's probably my favorite X99 offering aesthetics wise, such a shame about the stability problems. I'd probably still unbox it tbf.
