MSI X99A XPower Gaming Titanium review – the king of LGA2011

Along with the new Intel Broadwell-E processors, some of the motherboard manufacturers decided to renew their X99 portfolio and released new boards. Yet, not all of them unveiled new flagships, and actually only Asus and MSI did. For the former, you can read our Asus Rampage V Edition 10 review, while for the later I have this very article.

The subject for today is MSI X99A XPower Gaming Titanium review. We are used to the silver style from the Z170A XPower Titanium, but MSI decided to have one similar flagship for their X99 family. And that can only be great!


Having the X99A XPower AC for some time and knowing its potential, made me very anxious to test the new Titanium.
