How well does the Z490 perform as fashionable headgear?
Probably as well as most other motherboard chipset platforms.


Any plans for built in Tile Tracker or other Tracker?
I assume you mean if we are implementing GPS based location tracking technology for our motherboards. At the moment no, but if something like this is sought after for a motherboard there may be bigger issues at hand :)

Could we see some improved VRM cooling with B550? Possibly even with water cooling?
Unfortunately we cannot comment on this at this time.

We don't have onboard watercooled VRM, but the Z490 boards feature bolstered up heatsink solutions across the board. Motherboards such as the MEG Z490 GODLIKE and MEG Z490 ACE actually feature built-in active VRM cooling. However, we're working with EKWB and Bitspower, as they'll be producing customized water blocks for GODLIKE, ACE and Gaming Carbon covering both VRM and CPU.

Do you think a GTX 1050 is good or not ? Because I want to buy a gaming pc ??
It certainly can be a great entry level gaming card, just depends on what games you are looking to play and at what resolution. If you are playing games like Fortnite then you will probably be fine.

Ok Thankyou for the help also does it matter that there is going to be a intel core i3 2100 in there will that effect anything?

Again, it will depend on what your use case is; what type of games you are looking to play. As a general rule of thumb using entry level hardware will in turn yield entry level results meaning that more advanced gaming titles may require stronger hardware to run.

Are you able to control the motherboards LEDs with other light software such as Aura Sync or iCue?

Motherboard RGB lighting would be controllable with Mystic Light on our Dragon Center app.

Is a MSI RX580 worth to buy or it's better to lean on Nvidia's GPUs (like for the power consumption and unexpected crashes)? Thanks in advance..

Are there any plans to introduce ATX12VO with MSI motherboards? Not as sole, but as a transitional option to retain both ways and allow migration.
