Our good friends over at HardOCP have posted a review on the MSI X370 Gaming M7 ACK AMD Ryzen Motherboard. They gave it their silver award … proving that it ain’t bad at all. Go check out the review on their website.
MSI’s X370 Gaming M7 ACK brings a solid feature set and potential overclocking to the table. So far things have been a bit bumpy regarding AMD’s AM4 platform, but things have improved a lot recently. AMD’s AGESA code being up to scratch doesn’t mean anything if the motherboard manufacturers don’t do their part. Did MSI do its part?
The only real knock we have on the MSI X370 Gaming M7 ACK motherboard is the odd Killer Nic wireless issues we experienced. If wireless onboard is not an issue for you, the rest of the package truly shines. The MSI X370 Gaming M7 ACK is currently selling for $190 after a $20 MIR at Newegg. If you are not a rebate kind of guy, it is the same $210 price at Amazon with Prime Shipping. The ACK has a lot going for it, solid pricing, great overclocking, great power components, very good audio integration, dual M.2 support, and overclocking that has been as good as any we have seen on any Ryzen system. The fact is that a lot of AM4 motherboards have NOT been sent to us for review, kudos to MSI for stepping up with a solid AM4 design that we can suggest that you add to your possible buy list if AMD’s Ryzen is starting to look a bit more attractive to you.
