Packaging and Unboxing
MSI’s MEG X570 ACE arrives in an entirely black box with gold accents. The front of the box sports a futuristic backdrop with the MEG X570 ACE on the right. Toward the lower part of the box, we see that the MEG ACE is Ryzen 2000 and 3000 series compatible and also is PCIe Gen 4.0 ready.
Looking to the back of the box, we get our first looks at the full MEG ACE board showing off its infinity RGB mirror and steel-reinforced PCIe / DDR4 slots. On either side of the photo are some of the MEG’s features, which include:
- Onboard 2.5G plus Gigabit LAN with the latest Wi-Fi 6 solution
- Mystic Light Infinity
- Lightning Gen 4
- Core Boost
- Game Boost
- Frozr Heatsink
At the bottom is also a list of the MEG’s specifications, as well as a photo of its I/O.
Opening the box, we find the MEG ACE enclosed in an anti-static bag, which is stored in a cardboard tray.
Lifting the tray, we find a bunch of goodies that include:
- User guide
- Registration card
- Driver CD
- Warranty guide
- Cable labels
- Bag of accessories
Emptying the contents of the MSI branded bag reveals a Custom MSI Wi-Fi / Bluetooth antenna, MSI Badge, and various SATA/RGB extension cables.
After taking the MSI X570 ACE out of the bag, all that is left is removing the protective film from the board and getting it on our test bench.
