Great move to use the public bios to test this board else everything might have worked fine and you would be like "Hey this is one damn great board".

Awesome review Guv and Kudos to you for working with MSI to get those issues sorted as it's a nice looking board and needs to perform as good as it looks

This will be why OverclockersUK have this mobo with "free" ram and M.2 drive bundle for £350. They've picked the ram for you to save on all the returns!

Any money it either gets more expensive or the free ram disappears

IIRC I paid about £230 for my Big Bang Xpower II, which is what this sort of replaces.

Crappy speed - so it faffing should work

Pointless getting 2400mhz with this mobo tbh

Updates?

TinyTom, have there been any more updates on this board? I am strongly considering it since I am going to be getting the LPX 2800mhz ram anyway (Good way to afford 64gb)

Thanks!
