MSI Z87M Gaming mATX Motherboard Review

Rating: 9.0.

Since its inception earlier this year, MSI’s Gaming series of components has been a success story. With its well-respected ATX Gaming series motherboards receiving positive feedback, MSI turns its focus to winning over mATX gamers. Enter the micro-ATX Z87M Gaming.

Retaining many of the gaming-orientated features that made its ATX brothers alluring products, MSI’s Z87M Gaming is the first micro-ATX motherboard for the series. Support for 2-way SLI and CrossFire, MSI’s enhanced ‘Audio Boost’ sound system, and a Killer E2205 NIC are just some of the features that will appeal to many gamers.

Based around MSI’s Military Class 4 components, can the Z87M Gaming prove that a motherboard doesn’t need to utilise the ATX form factor to be packed with worthwhile gaming features?



  • Killer E2200 Series NIC.
  • Audio Boost.
  • OC Genie 4.
  • Military Class 4.
  • Multi-GPU Support.
  • Sound Blaster Cinema.
  • Gaming Device Port.
