Equipped with a 14-phase VRM solution, a well-designed onboard cooling system, and triple M.2 slots, the MSI MEG X570 ACE is aiming to prove its worth in the enthusiast segment of the AM4 market.
Despite being positioned third in MSI’s X570 hierarchy, the ACE brings noteworthy features to the high-end market segment. ‘Mystic Light Infinity’ is unique in its approach to onboard RGB lighting, with the feature utilising a highly reflective panel to create an infinity-style lighting appearance. MSI aims to add further ‘zest’ to the ACE’s styling by opting for gold accents in specific areas – an unusual styling approach that could certainly appeal to some users.

Aside from the power delivery solution and visual pointers, the MSI MEG X570 ACE is well equipped with useful features. You get three M.2 slots, all of which can be used simultaneously whilst also featuring a smart cooling system. And for networking gurus, 2.5Gb Ethernet and 2.4Gbps 802.11ax WiFi accompany the usual Gigabit port.
One clear area of differentiation for MSI is its heatsink design. The inclusion of a heatpipe connecting the MOSFETs to the chipset heatsink is touted as improving motherboard operation by making a portion of the fan’s active cooling capacity available to the VRM. That’s a smart design move, so let’s take a deeper look at the rest of the motherboard.
