    MSI MPG Z390 GAMING EDGE AC Reviews

    MPG Z390 GAMING EDGE AC LGA 1151 ATX Motherboard is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Does as advertised. Use Intel site to get the newest drivers as not all MSI supplied drivers work. Manual describes BIOS decently. In my experience, MSI boards last for years. The first board sent would not recognize the CPU, B and H promptly exchanged and replacement board works correctly.
