1. Integrated I/O shield
2. Individual status LEDs for CPU, RAM slots, and GPU
3. Miniature OLED display
4. RGB lighting and control
5. Overclocking dial, along with power/reset buttons
6. CMOS clearer button on the back
7. Switches for changing BIOS profiles
8. M2 drive heat sinks
9. 6.5 mm headphone jack output
And those are just the motherboard generation-agnostic features -- granted there are some features like the built-in WiFi that are unique to the 9th generation in particular which are supremely useful.
I hope the features of this motherboard can trickle down to entry-level boards in a few years. The BIOS software on this is also pretty expansive in terms of capabilities, however, the UX could have used a bit more work, and its clear there are perhaps some translation issues as there's a few grammatical errors which are fairly minor, but are more of a visual inconvenience.
Also, as is natural for many high-end products, this motherboard came with a few nice add-ons:
1. A PCIe HDMI capture card. Haven't used this yet, and I'm unsure its specifications, but I will update this review once I've tested it.
2. A PCI-E M2 expansion slot. The motherboard already comes with 3 slots, but if thats not enough for you, then this device is handy.
3. External antenna for LAN/Bluetooth
I haven't had this board for very long so I couldn't genuinely comment on any features like longevity/durability, but it at least feels sturdy -- unlike other boards it's not going to make you sweat pulling out the 24-pin power connector, for example.
What became quite clear was how incredibly well-built and feature-rich this motherboard is. Every time I was wondering how to connect something, I found there was a connector for it. Every time I was looking to push the envelope on speed –with stability– I found there was an easy way to do it. And, every time I was stuck, I found the manual and the MSI support site very helpful.
The PC is now two months up and running and it's been stable. I maxed out the memory with 64Gb. I maxed out the graphics with 2 Titan RTXs. It has 6Tb of M.2. It runs an i9-9900k. So, yes, it's a crazy setup. But so worth it. And all that is possible because at the heart of it is this amazing motherboard.
If there were one or two things to improve it'd be:
1. The number of USB 2.0 headers. There are two adjacent USB 3.0 headers and that's very helpful. But having only 2 USB 2.0 headers forced me to buy an extension.
2. A Thunderbolt header.
All-in-all, this is an incredible motherboard that I can highly recommend.
There were many inquiries on the internet about the ability for this motherboard to fit in the cougar conquer case. There was not much for answers since this is a pretty new product. That being said , I went ahead and got it anyways accepting the risk. As you can see in the attached photo, this eATX (extended ATX) motherboard fit in the cougar conquer case flawlessly, there were even mounting points for it. The manufacturer of the case states that it only accepts he normal ATX standard. This is a temporary review to give the answer to the same question many people were asking on reddit forums, twitch, etc. Im still waiting on Stupid Intel to ship out there i9 9900 processor even though it was released like a week ago, so as soon as I finish my build I will post more about this.
