Yup, I like this board a lot also. To bad I have a fairly new 470 so not ready for an upgrade. I wonder how much it will run. It looks expensive.

NEVER buy a mobo with a proprietary fan in it! Never! If that fan breaks, and I have had two fans on mobos do exactly that, you have to either kludge a fan to cool the board or throw the board away. MSI even brags that the fan embedded in the heatsink is "patented" so good luck buying a replacement fan somewhere. If you DO buy this mobo, immediately order two replacement fans for it from MSI as insurance (if that is even possible). Better yet, skip this board.

Hardware unboxed was very impressed by this motherboard. Very good vrm. It did runs very cool. Good features, reasonable good heatsink without any stupid plastic covering it!

That goes for the whole x570 lineup then... and possibly all motherboards in the future with a PCI-E 4.0 support. Just got the Asrock Taichi with high chipset temps and a fan running at constant high rpm.

What is the estimated lifetime of a motherboard fan running at ~3000-6000 RPM constantly btw..?
