MSI Z170A Gaming Pro Carbon Review

Our friends at Neoseeker have the MSI Z170A Gaming Pro Carbon on the test bench today for a little review action. I don't want to spoil the conclusion for you but this motherboard did earn a "recommended award."

Today I will be reviewing the MSI Z170A Gaming Pro Carbon motherboard! Manufacturer MSI already has a plethora of motherboard options available for the Intel LGA 1151 socket, with the main difference between boards being specific features. MSI designed this motherboard around the Intel Z170 chipset for LGA 1151; it's worth noting that other chipsets for this socket do not allow for full overclocking. CPU cooling solutions for prior sockets including LGA 1150, LGA 1155, and LGA 1156 are still compatible.
