MSI Z270 XPower Gaming Titanium Motherboard Review

Legit Reviews has posted a review of the MSI Z270 XPower Gaming Titanium motherboard today. You have to admit, that is a very sharp looking board.

For a flagship motherboard, you expect it to have a wide range of support, which the Z270 XPower Gaming Titanium doesn’t disappoint.  Take a look at the storage options, three M.2, eight SATA 6Gb/s, and a single U.2 port; there are no SATA Express ports (which is good in my opinion).  You want lots of USB connections?  There are two internal USB 3.1 Gen 1 headers, and two USB 2.0 headers; on the back MSI provides four USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A, a Gen 2 Type-A, and Gen 2 Type-C.  Dedicated GPU support isn’t a slouch either, 2-Way SLI, and 4-Way CrossFire is supported.  To cool all of the equipment there are five fan headers, and a dedicated Liquid Cooling Pump header.
