We know that MSI love to create some of the best-looking motherboards out there, and we suspect the MSI MEG Z490 ACE is one of them! As one of their high-end enthusiast motherboards, it’s crammed full of features to ensure great overclocking performance from the latest Intel CPUs. However, aesthetics are just as big a part of the enthusiast PC building market these days as anything else, so they’ve given it a funky gun-metal, black and gold design laced with RGB to make it really stand out from the crowd.
Aesthetics are certainly a strong point with this motherboard, offering up plenty of RGB lighting and effects, but it’s certainly function before form here. Enormous heatsinks, a massive INTELSIL Digital PWM setup with 16+1 phases and a 90A power stage, built-in WiFi 6 and 2.5G LAN. Plus you get extensive support for M.2, all complimented with M.2 Shield Frozr. ESS DAC & Nahimic for audio, and much more. It seems then, there’s really much this motherboard doesn’t have!
“The MEG series seeks to transcend current gaming products, the flagship model designed to push the limits of what an extreme gaming series can be. Combining the strengths of our existing arsenal with new innovative technology; this results in significant improvements in operational and gaming efficiency. With the MEG series, take complete control of performance and personalization with the ultimate gaming series for enthusiasts who want it all.” – MSI
