MSI GAMING M7 Z270 Motherboard Review and 7700k Overclocking Results.

by birtanpublished on April 6, 2021

Hello everyone its mark from silence Tech Intel's new chipset Z 270 is finally here today we'll be taking a look at Emma side gaming m7 motherboard aesthetics wise I absolutely loved the design the motherboard will match any build because it's completely absent of any color so the board won't clash with any of your other components inside your gaming rig but don't think the board is boring though using MSI's mystic light app you can choose between several lighting options and I'll be running through that later moving away from the aesthetics just for a second the gaming m7 has a whole host of top-of-the-range

Features straight off the bat water stick out most about this board is its massive shielded rear i/o cover keeping heat away from those valuable components also the V RMS are cooled by a massive heatsink and hopefully that will help when we overclock this beastly 7700 K the LGA 1151 socket is still used on this motherboard supporting sixth and seventh generation Intel Core processors such as newly released KB Lake 7700 K and the oldest skylake 6700 K MSI's Z 270 gaming m7 houses for ddr4 dimm slots allowing for dual channel memory support max speeds are rated on this motherboard

Up to 4000 mega Hertz and the DIMM slots like the PCIe Express slots have metal plates running around them which looks awesome especially with some chrome special edition Dominator platinum installed the motherboard also has free pcie 3.0 x 16 expansion slots but unfortunately the motherboard only supports 2-way SLI from Nvidia although if you're running pasco cards that shouldn't really matter if you're running AMD GPUs the gaming m7 allows up to freeway crossfire much like the DIMM slots the gaming m7 motherboard has steel PCI Express slots which look

Really good they help stop heavy GPUs from sagging and haven't used a similar design on other motherboards before I can confirm that they really do support heavy graphics cards and stop them from sagging looking over to the far left of the expansion slots MSI fitted plastic covers which are numbered from one to five just in case you forget which one is which but they also light up and I absolutely cannot wait to see how they look when I test the lighting out if you like end up two drives that em7 has you covered the motherboard features free m2 slots you'll be able to

Fit drives of various lengths including 22 42 22 60 and 20 to 80 is great the board allows you to pair up two drives simultaneously in raid straight off the motherboard without the need for any adapters the gaming m7 also comes included with a metal m2 shield although I'm not sure I'm a fan of that bulky bolt used to fit the shield to the motherboard but other storage options are plentiful with you two and six SATA free ports the bottom right corner of the motherboard has its own power and reset switch removing the need to ever

Jump the motherboard next to them is an overclock button that turns on MSI's gaming boost it will overclock your cpu and memory depending on how you configure it in the system bios there's also a dial with various levels that can be adjusted it's strongly recommended though to leave the dial well alone if you don't have any knowledge of overclocking all the correct cooling Hardware lastly before moving on to the lighting there's a debug LED that reads off various codes during post to help you diagnose any errors that you may have during the motherboards lifetime

The lighting on the gaming m7 looks awesome using MSI's gaming app there's various colors to choose from such as red yellow green light blue dark blue purple and lastly white onto the rear i/o the m7 has two USB to ports a ps2 mouse keyboard port clear CMOS button a USB flash back port that can be used to update the motherboards bios without the need for any other components apart from a connected power supply it also has one HDMI to point B a DisplayPort 1.2 to USB 3.1 ports a killer LAN port two USB one port

One type sea and one type a and lastly mic and headphone jacks as well as a s/pdif fan support that m7 has one CPU header one pump header and for system fan headers giving just enough to connect up free front fans and one rear trying to overclock with the gaming m7 motherboard was extremely easy whether it's my rom or my CPU much like my last review the gaming m7 overclocked the 7700 K to 5 gigahertz no problem at all it's easily got the 7700 K to its limit using only 1.31 volts using either 64 I found the temperatures were extremely low and never hitting anything higher

Than 78 degrees Celsius and so far I've been extremely impressed with this year's lineup of d2 17 motherboards anyway guys that about wraps up this quick review well a quick review for a motherboard at least as a summary MSI have done a great job with the gaming n7 their flagship z2 17 motherboard has to be one of their best yet in not only features but the design as well I love how they've kept the PCB black and not used red around the heat sinks otherwise the motherboard is essentially limited to people with red and black builds only the m7 s features are plentiful and it

Shouldn't be outdated for a number of years especially due to the fact there's so many empty drives available on the board finally the award for the gaming m7 motherboard is going to have to be much like my last motherboard review a platinum personally I think motherboards are a great example of where companies seem to get everything right and not only the looks departments but features and pricing as well anyway I hope you've enjoyed the review guys and girls I've been mark from Silence tech goodbye
