Customer Reviews

Nice board, some issues!

All in all, very pleased with this product, arrived with next day delivery from CO and well packaged.

Downside was the initial install and windows boot. No drivers were installed and took about 2 hours to get it all working as it should (despite a number of attempts to flash the BIOS and clean install Win11Pro. In the end had to use some SysAdmin privileges to bypass the normal windows install junk to force install network drivers to the board.

Though, not a reflection on the board as this seems to be a common issue with MSI boards.

Once done though, the board is working as should, very very fast indeed with a 14900k i9.

Performance and Aesthetics

Selecting the MSI MPG Z790 CARBON WIFI as my motherboard was a decision driven by both its technical specifications and design elements. The motherboard's power delivery is engineered to cater to high-end Intel CPUs, demonstrating stability under various load conditions. Thermal efficiency is notably enhanced by the extensive heatsink design and the incorporation of quality thermal pads, mitigating heat during intense computing tasks. Aesthetically, the motherboard stands out with its sleek design.
