MSI X299 Gaming M7 ACK Review

There is a review of the MSI X299 Gaming M7 ACK motherboard posted today at Overclockers Club that is certainly worth checking out.
Overclocking was fairly painless with the X299 Gaming M7 ACK and allowed me to reach up over 4.6GHz on the Core i9 7900X and step over the 5GHz boundary on the Core i7 7740X. The key to overclocking on eight-core and higher chips from Intel is to keep the voltage as low as possible to minimize the thermals. Short-term, a quality AIO will get the job done, but for the long-term you will need to go with a custom water setup.
