MSI Z170A XPower Gaming Titanium Edition Motherboard Review

Our next motherboard review comes courtesy of MSI. This go around, we get a chance to look at their flagship offering, the Z170A XPower Gaming Titanium Edition motherboard… wow was that a mouthful!

Being an avid overclocker, I am hoping MSI sticks to their roots on the XPower Gaming Titanium Edition and takes care of the overclockers. Bless your heart gamers, but your demographic is pretty easy to take care of in most cases. Let’s see where the needle lands when we look at MSI’s flagship Z170 motherboard! Read More

The features list is long and its power phases are more robust than anything I have seen. This should be a good one people. Let’s dive in and take a look! Read More
