MSI MEG X570 ACE Preview



The MSI M range has brought us some of the best motherboards around in recent times and with a new chipset to play with we had to see what they'd done on the X570 platform with the MEG ACE.

Yea. The font is terrible, the print is like it was done in a garage in a hurry, and it looks really cheep, and plasticky. It may be a good board, but MSI needs to up the aesthetic. The lights are worse than those on a circus tent.

The boards are really good normally and the reason for all the "tackiness" is they mainly sell in an Asian market so it's targeted for them, it's like the monstrous grill on the new BMW 7 series the biggest market is China so the rest of the world have to put up with it as they like big grills on their cars.

I guess it didnt apply very well to brushed metal. Looks like they just put the font over the brushed metal as opposed to laser etching.
