Great board and has been hassle free

Worked from the first bootup. Nice Bios, easy overclocking so far. The board was easy to install, extra fan headers were useful. The software and drivers have been good, regularly updated too.

Awards & Media Coverage

  • Hardware Heaven - Diamond

    "Quite simply this is the best Z170 based board we have tested…we wouldn’t change a thing really and therefore it wins our Diamond award."

  • Play3r - Gold

    "MSI definitely released a unique motherboard in the sense of its colour scheme. As I mentioned right at the start, I was unaware that MSI were going to bring another motherboard to the market that has an overclocker-orientated (as well as high-end gaming) design to it, as they supposedly dropped the XPOWER (from previous generations) moniker in favour of their “GAMING” brand."

  • TechiCize - Design

    "Based on everything we’ve seen today I’m awarding it Gold, though I feel it fair to further complement it with the design award; there's nothing else like it. the TE is solid and extremely able and pricing is very fair. Great job MSI"

  • KitGuru - Worth Buying

    "MSI deserves credit for trying something new with the Z170A XPower Gaming Titanium Edition, and the gamble results in a board with strong performance and an extensive feature set."

  • Vortez - Gold

    "MSI has taken a bold step forward with the introduction of XPOWER GAMING TITANIUM. This motherboard is a head turner for all the right reasons – the physical appearance is unique and the feature-set is all-encompassing!"

  • Bit-Tech - Extreme Ultra

    "It's fast at stock speed and overclocks well and very easily too - made even easier by a wealth of overclocking tools, both software and hardware based such as the included OC dashboard."

  • eTeknix - Editor's Choice

    “The most unique Z170 motherboard has landed in the XPOWER GAMING TITANIUM, but be warned it isn’t for the faint-hearted and requires some knowledge to really reap the benefits.“
