    Read if your having BSOD issuesIt’s a lot of board for the money with one major issue. If you run into system instability issues and constant BSOD’s go into bios and turn on the game boost or basic auto overclocking and the issue will be resolved. For whatever reason the board seems to undervolt the CPU when running stock out of the box causing major stability issues. I chased down the issue for 3 weeks and was ready to RMA it before coming across this fix on the 13th page of a random forum and haven’t had an issue since.

    Overall, I think this is an extremely capable motherboard and is priced to beat the competition.I purchased this motherboard for building a custom VR rig. This is not a full-size ATX, it is slightly smaller, which helps with system building. I also recently purchased a GIGABYTE X570 AORUS Master that cost almost $100 more. It is similar in spec and supports the AMD Ryzen 9. I would say that the MSI sacrifices a few frills, for example, there is no LED code readout on the motherboard and no power or reset switches. In addition, the onboard fan is exposed whereas, with the AORUS, it is hidden under a shield. However, I never see that fan spin, only when it boots. The MSI has a small advantage in DDR4 speeds up to 4600MHZ vs the AORUS supports speeds up to 4400MHZ. I’ve also used both BIOS’s and IMO, they are similar in that they both offer granular advanced control with voltages as well as an easy mode for folks who are just starting out with overclocking.Overall, I think this is a great value for money especially if you are budget conscious and want to get the most for your money.

    Worked for less than a weekBought this for use in my gaming pc.Had to wait three weeks for my back-order to arrive and it dies after less than a week of use.I didn’t overclock anything on my setup, used a high quality power supply, and didn’t even game on it once (was waiting till the weekend) and it still died… just from regular desktop use.

    great product and seller!Great product, I’m super satisfied with this mobo!

    Best VRMs at this price pointThis is a thick and well built motherboard. I selected this modem particularly for their well rated VRMs at this price point and build quality.Installation is as easy as most motherboards and plenty of room around the CPU to support many AIOs and water coolers.Performance out of the box is stellar (6100+ on 5800x no tweaks or adjustments).So why 3 stars?Mine arrived with bent pins on the front USB 20 pin connector I had to straighten.ALL of the system fan headers are on the very bottom of the motherboard. Prepare to purchase fan extension cables.Chipset fan can be a bit loud when it decides to take off for flight during startup.If you want to control the RGB, you will need to install MSI’s invasive dragon center software. Read through the EULA before they will let you install it and they are all over your data as much as possible. OpenRGB and similar projects do not work with this motherboard so you are stuck with OFF or an annoying pulsing. The actual component that controls MSI RGB, Mystic Light, used to be a stand alone program but MSI has now rolled it into their all in one control center suite which leaves you forced to use it. Best bet is to install, set your RGB and uninstall.A very good board with just enough wrong (the biggest culprit being the Dragon Center software) to knock a few stars off.3/5

    Holy Cow! What an upgrade over my old X470 MSI Gaming Pro Carbon!I’ve now had this installed in my PC since early September 2020. I swapped out the Gaming Pro Carbon for this, and what a difference!I have been running 4X8GB G.Skill Flare X (F4-3200C14-8GFX B-die) and a 2700X. With the Gaming Pro Carbon I could never get the memory to reliably clock above 2933MHz. With this X570 Tomahawk, particularly since I’ve been running updated AMD AGESA ComboAm4v2PI Patch C, I can run the memory at 3200MHz with extremely tight timings very reliably. If you are familiar with Ryzen, you know that utilizing four DIMMs and getting them to run fast with tight timings is difficult. So far, I haven’t tried going above 3200MHz, but I will, soon.The VRM is amazing – it runs very cool, even with PBO activated.It’s amazing how much a motherboard can positively affect a PC’s performance, with no other upgrades. My latest Cinebench R20 multi-core score was 4143, which for a 2700X is stellar. My 2700X is not overclocked.Eventually, I plan on upgrading the CPU to a 5800X. From what Steve at GamersNexus has found, Ryzen 5000-series actually run faster with four DIMMs, rather than two. I’ll find out.

    boot problemSo pumped to get this. Built whole thing turn on won’t boot. Dimms b1 b2 won’t work called msi they had me troubleshoot luckily I have extra parts ram on qvl, and other gen 3 ryzen chips. Only way it will boot is if no dimms in b1 or b2 now as you can imagine tons of wasted time have to take it all apart and send back.

    Nice motherboard lots of featuresI have been using a new build on this motherboard for almost a week now and so far so good. It has all the good features from the X570 chipset now with out a fan. The fanless X570 is the main reason I waited over a month for these new motherboards to hit the market before building the new PC.Paired with a Ryzen 7 5800X, 64GB Crucial Ballistix 3600MHz, Crucial P5, Radeon RX 580 8G (old card from old system but right now prices are insane for a new GPU) and some other big HDDs for storage. Booted just fined the first time, setting XMP profiles and configuring the BIOS is really easy. Not a single or anything.

    Simply AmazingMSI has done it. This board is simply amazing. Not filled with a bunch of bells and pretty lights. Able to OC my 3800X to 4.7Mhz. Board does not even break a sweat. If I had known how good this was I would have gone for a 3950X. VRM is running cool to the touch. The WIFI 6 is blazingly fast and stable. I wish I had more to put on it – still have 2 Sata available, 1 NVME, 4 fan controlers (I had a fan HUB for my controller). Right now my temp is registering at 23C and only using 119w (My old i7 went as high as 206). This is the best board yet.

    A lot of motherboard for the pricePros:- You get the VRM of a 300$ motherboard for 200$, which should be quite useful for “extreme-ish” overclocking.- Decent amount of USB ports.- PCIe 4.0 x16 (though it isn’t a game-breaker quite yet)- (subjective) is pretty good looking for those who like the “does it come in black?” color pallet.- Runs a 3900X OC’ed at a stable 4400MHz All cores and 16GB of 3600MHz 14-14-14-28 with no problems.Cons:- The USB ports are not enough separated for my liking. I get space is limited, but I’d have appreciated it more had the spacing between USB ports been a bit bigger; some devices’ USB header are quite big and I can’t really plug two of them side by side without one bending a little.- The antennas can interfere with cables plugged into the two USB 2.0 ports at the top; a bit of an overlooked layout design, in my opinion, considering people who pay the premium for the WiFi version wouldn’t want to potentially sacrifice ports.What you miss (VS higher-end boards):- No power button and reset button on the motherboard.- No Clear CMOS button; short only.- No LED postcode; you only have white LEDs for the booting sequence.- No 10Gb LAN** Please note that these features are useful for overclockers, but not for the casual consumer. In all honesty, casual consumers don’t miss out on anything, except maybe the 10Gb LAN, but that is generally reserved for the top-end motherboards, so that is to be expected **Summary:- Great value motherboard overall (you seriously get a lot of MOBO for 200-ish$).- Great overclocking capabilities.- VRM that is out of its league.If price isn’t a thing you consider when buying a motherboard, I’d recommend the MSI X570 Unity, which is a great motherboard for 300$, or the X570 Aorus Master, which is a top-end motherboard with all the features you’d want.If, on the other hand, you’re on a tighter budget, but still want PCIe 4.0 everywhere, the ASUS X570 TUF Gaming Plus is a great motherboard for 20-40$ less than the X570 Tomahawk (depends if you want the WiFi version or not), and should be able to run a Ryzen 9 3900X with no problem.
