Our good friends at HardOCP have just published a review on the MSI X299 XPower Gaming AC Motherboard. They give it their Gold Award which mean one thing … it’s really good. Head over there to check out the rest of the review.
The X299 XPower Gaming AC is MSI’s flagship HEDT motherboard for Intel CPU’s. This monster motherboard has an enormous feature set and an fairly large price tag as we have come to expect with HEDT boards. However, there is definite value here if you are looking to put together an Intel based High End DeskTop system.
… For $450 and Prime Shipping, the MSI X299 XPower Gaming AC comes equipped with just about everything you could ask for in an HEDT package. And actually, we still think at that price it still represents an excellent value. MSI has “come back” in terms of designing and building motherboards in the last couple years and the X299 XPOWER GAMING AC very much represents that. The motherboard also has a very good look to it as well with its all black and silver shading. Of course it has all the fancy frag-harder lights if that is your thing. If you are looking to tempt fate and overclock one of these new HEDT CPUs, the X299 XPower Gaming AC has shown to be second to none in that arena.
