The Gaming Plus, so far, has worked out perfectly. Everything is working flawlessly, and installation was a breeze after I figured out I didn't need the extra 4-pin power connector for the CPU Power, just the 8-pin (my power supply only had the 8, not the 8+4). The BIOS is terrific--easy to configure, and the XMP profile was convenient for setting up my 16GB (2x8) of G.Skill RipJaws DDR4 3000 RAM.
The USB so far appears solid--a problem I faced with the Gigabyte board, which had a flaky USB bus (among other problems). Also, my Samsung Evo 960 (250GB) is blazing fast, as is everything else. No overheating at stock or boosted core speeds, and the heatsinks are all very firmly seated on this board (my Gigabyte had badly-seated heatsinks which meant the board heated up too much with even minor overclocking attempts).
The "Armored" PCIE port is a great idea, and works well with my ASUS GeForce 1080Ti ROG Strix in there--a heavy board that doesn't bend the armored port at all.
The MSI also easily accommodated my Corsair H60 liquid cooler, which I repurposed for the 2600X as I did not want to go with the stock (fan) Wraith cooler. The Corsair attached easily, and even at peak effort with all cores firing at over 4GHz, the highest temperature I've seen is 72C; I'm getting between 36C-44C at idle, and around 56C under moderate loads. Absolutely no overheating issues with this board (unlike the Gigabyte).
If I had one criticism, it would be the lack of color-coding for the audio jacks in back, but I eventually figured out what goes where (the diagram in the manual didn't really help), so I'm not taking points off for that. Everything else with this board has been terrific so far.
Anyway, very pleased.
If I have one complaint it would be that nothing (box, antistatic bag) was sealed.
And all was fine, I could overclock up to 4.2 GHz and stock voltage, but it's a tad bit warm, even with a closed loop 3 hole radiator. I find that the 3.6 GHz boost is fine and plenty fast. The bios wasn't too hard to figure out, but manual was little help. Information is vague for this brand, even on their website.
After everything was reinstalled, I hooked up a pair of WD 1TB HDD's to a RAID 1 set up. So far so good, I could see and back up into the raid. At the same time I started to notice sleep/resume issues. And things went downhill from there. The computer would go to sleep on it's own, but when I tapped a key or the mouse, it would reboot. If I forced sleep mode, the screen would shut off and the computer would hang. meh.....
Long story short, I did everything my 25 years of knowledge knew, I finally let windums try to repair the install and that was that. I unhooked the raid drives, reset the bios to default, I never could get the damn thing to run.
Ultimately, with all drives disconnected, I found I couldn't even install to the M.2 drive! Lucky for me, in the bios you can secure erase the SSD M.2 drive, and only then I could reinstall Win 10 to the boot drive. For a while I really thought the board was toast.
And all is again, well and good. But no raid, I won't go there again! The two WD 1TB drives work fine, in non raid mode. I have heard of others having similar problems with MSI gaming MB's and raid functions. IF your going to try using the raid, make sure you got a good back up!
For a gaming platform, it seems to be fine. I don't know what's up with the raid, if it's hardware or software, I would avoid if your wanting to run a RAID. Another of my turnoffs with MSI is the very lame forum. Not only is the layout confusing, it's the black background with white letters that just kills my eyes when I'm trying to find a solution, which I found none. I did better on AMD's forum for answers about the x470 platform.
So my major cons for this mother board are-
#1- The RAID functions are questionable reliability
#2- The manual has very little information.
#3- The MSI website/forum is horrible to look at and is not very helpful.
#4- I am only using AMD drivers since my reinstall, the software and drivers from MSI can be confusing.
I would not recommend this board.
