So good

My first build and I used this, Msi have a preset OC for my 6600k for 4.1 ghz with the click of a button and like the above review says its so good!

Top Board. Recommended!

Tested with a Core i7-6700K, GTX 980 Ti, 2x4GB of DDR4-3000 RAM, and a Samsung 850 EVO M.2 drive. Easily OC'd the 6700K to 4.4GHz with a simple change of ratios, no need for extra voltage. In fact these Z170 boards (this is my second) are coming from the factory with pretty high default vcores (1.28V), and I undervolted the board by 0.1V to hit the overclock. Easily accepted my fast DDR4 kit.

There is no debug LED display on the board. Instead, there are single red LEDs by the various areas (GPU, PCH, RAM) that light up during POST as each section is tested, then turn off when the test is passed. If you're building a brand new system, then I would say go with Skylake, given the falling cost of DDR4.

The MSI PRO line of boards has been very reliable to me, and MSI likely fine-tuned this board for optimum stability for the price, not features (even though you do get a lot for your money still). Everything just worked for me, and MSI makes it easy to set up.
