MSI X299 Gaming M7 ACK Motherboard Review

MSI’s packaging is fairly typical of its Gaming line of products with a strong red and black theme. The rear of the packaging highlights four standout features which are the GameBoost switch, RGB Mystic Light, 3D X-Mounting and M.2 Shield Frozr all of which will be detailed as the review progresses.

The documentation bundle includes guidance on memory installation which varies depending on the CPU as some of Intel’s lower-end models (Kaby Lake-X) only support 4 out of 8 DIMM slots whereas the high-end models (Skylake-X) support the full complement of 8 lanes. The full extent of the accessory package is as follows:

  • User manual
  • Registration Insert
  • Driver and utility DVD
  • Memory installation Notice
  • Quick Installation guide
  • Cable labels
  • Case badge
  • 4 x SATA cables
  • Rear I/O shield
  • SLI HB Bridge M (2-Way)
  • 2 x WiFi Antennae
  • 3D X-Mounting Screw Pillars (12 pieces)
  • RGB LED extension Y-Cable (80cm)
