MSI is offering a lot of different options for those looking for a Z97 chipset-based motherboard. First they have the classis, gaming and overclocking series; now they have added the Eco series and some Krait edition motherboards. Hence, the gaming series is perhaps the more popular option for builders and gamers today with it having a black and red theme board and with it built for specifically for gaming. Today, we will be looking at one of the gaming series boards, the MSI Z97 Gaming 5 motherboard.February 21, 2015 at 10:57 am #84609ghostamongyouParticipant
If Ferrari made a motherboard, I think it would look something like this. That is a very stylish and attractive board.February 22, 2015 at 10:54 am #84636killjoyjimMember
I love MSIFebruary 22, 2015 at 4:47 pm #84639RealNeilParticipant
I like MSI’s Gaming edition products. I have a Z87 G45 Gaming Mainboard and I’m getting ready to install an MSI R9-290X-OC Gaming GPU into it.
They look great together.
Overall it’s a potent gamer and runs steady as a rock. MSI makes very nice components.
Good review Mike.February 22, 2015 at 5:37 pm #84641Bob2701Member
I have used a couple of MSI’s boards and really like how well made they are. Maybe for my next build….February 24, 2015 at 9:49 am #84649StaticFXParticipant
thats the board I have now.. its fantastic. Combo the MSI Fast boot with win 8.1 and an SSD, and I am cold boot to desktop (where I can start an app) in about 4 seconds. Its crazy fast!March 9, 2015 at 4:23 pm #84792YesParticipant
MSI has come a long way. Awesome products. Their new boards look goodJune 20, 2015 at 8:11 pm #85683nyne7lacParticipant
I never used a MSI product until this year. I bought a second hand laptop made by MSI and it’s everything I could ask for. Now that I am building a new rig I’m contemplating this MB. I’ve heard nothing but good things about itJune 22, 2015 at 9:03 am #85698StaticFXParticipant
Love it still… i think the only thing I wish it had was dual Bios… but thats the gaming 7June 26, 2015 at 4:29 am #85795aceMember
i have sported MSI for my last 4 builds. They are rock solid. I had to rma one board for a bad bios and they were super easy to deal with. Great review!
