MSI MEG Z390 Godlike – the Ultimate Z390 motherboard. At a cost.

Rating: 8.0.

MSI has given the MEG Z390 Godlike motherboard a name that promises a huge amount. MEG (MSI Enthusiast Gaming) and Z390 are self-explanatory while Godlike sets out the stall and promises this motherboard will deliver a list of features that are second to none.

Make no mistake about it, MSI has done its best to fulfil this promise with a motherboard that is packed with hardware, including 18-phase VRMs to keep the CPU supplied with power. You also get a number of accessories in the box that add extra M.2 storage, an HDMI streaming card and an external antennae for the Wi-Fi.

The downside is that this E-ATX motherboard has a huge price tag of £599.99 which means there is no room for error. This motherboard has to deliver the ultimate gaming experience with huge performance, great features and a user experience that is beyond reproach and if it manages all that there is still a decent chance that the price may still too much to swallow.
