MSI Z270 Tomahawk review – the arsenal commander

MSI Gaming motherboards are split in 3 categories: Enthusiast, Performance and Arsenal. I’ve started with 2 products from Enthusiast line, Gaming M5 and XPower Titanium, but I will continue with the flagship of Arsenal series: MSI Z270 Tomahawk.

I had the X99 version last year and the impression was very good, so I have the same expectations from the new member.
