MSI Formally Launches the MEG Z690 GODLIKE Motherboard

As Intel launched the 12th Gen Core processors and immediately gained lots of attention, MSI also released many motherboards for various usages. However, the best has yet to come until now. Today, the last member of the Z690 platform is here. The one board to rule them all - MEG Z690 GODLIKE. GODLIKE's number one goal for the end-users is evident, designed for the best performance and experience enabled by truly remarkable systems. Whether it's record-breaking overclocking, ultra-customization of ARGB lighting with touch control LCD dashboard, or simply the desire to build the most powerful system imaginable, the MEG Z690 GODLIKE stands unrivaled at the pinnacle of all the Z690 motherboard capabilities.

It is covered in dark, deep, and full aluminium heatsink fashioned with a triangular grid pattern. The illuminating dragon nebula with tempered glass reveals the power with a column of faith and meteor RGB effect. The MEG Z690 GODLIKE symbolizes the endless power of the one universe, ready for every challenge.
Under its powerful appearance, there are multiple patented-pending cooling solutions. The Dual Cross Heat-pipe connects two MOS heatsinks, while the exclusive Wavy Fin Design with 7 W/mK Thermal Pad provides a great surface for heat dissipation. The Magnetic Double-sided M.2 Shield Frozr effectively reduces the high-speed M.2 temperature that helps gamers enjoy its extreme performance while having the lowest operating temperature.

M-Vision Dashboard
It is equipped with the industry's first built-in touchable LCD. The 3.5 inch IPS LCD panel on the motherboard provides the next level of system diagnostics - hardware monitoring, reading debug codes, finding other useful information, and even customizing your display with dedicated MSI software. Moreover, the touchable function enables system operation, fine-tunes complicated PC settings, and even activates the windows function with customization in one touch.

The M-Vision Dashboard connects the motherboard with its easy to disassemble magnetic design. Furthermore, once connected with the GODLIKE rear USB port, the dashboard can operate independently. You can put the dashboard in front of your case, on your desk, or stick to your monitor for easy access. With just one touch, your PC operation received an entire new form.

Extreme Power Solution & Storage Performance
The MEG Z690 GODLIKE features the summit direct power solution, Direct 20+2 Phases with 105 A Smart Power Stage power design, dual 8-pin power connectors with exclusive Core Boost technology, and 8 Layer Server Grade with 2 oz copper PCB. This makes it all the more ready to push the latest processors to their limits!

The incredible onboard 6x M.2 connectors for the maximum storage performance with one Lightning Gen 5 solution allow gamers to get super-fast game speed. Strengthened by Magnetic Double-sided M.2 Shield Frozr, the M.2 SSDs can be cooler and faster.

The Ultimate Performance
GODLIKE features tons of the latest technology to overcome any challenge at hand. Onboard 10G Super LAN, WI-FI 6E Solution with MSI LAN Manager, Dual Thunderbolt 4, USB 4.0, Dual Lightning PCIe 5.0 Slots, Latest DDR5 Memory, Dual Front USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 20G Type-C, Audio Boost 5 HD, and MSI Center software all provide you the "GODLIKE" performance.

Limited Edition - Plentiful Accessory
There is only a limited quantity of this masterpiece. For those who want to pick up the MEG Z690 GODLIKE, we're offering a prioritized qualification to those who purchased a previous generation of GODLIKE motherboard or an MSI RTX 3080 or 3090 series graphics card before as an appreciation. The limited-edition comes with a MEG CORELIQUID S360 liquid cooler, 2X KINGSTON FURY BEAST DDR5 16G memory, and tons of membership rewards. Please check here for more purchase information.

That’s more than many people pay for their whole computers. Heck, some people pay LESS than that!

32GB DDR5 that costs around $360 on newegg and an AIO that should be another $150 or so, even after that board is overpriced beyond reason. Gigabyte's Z690 Extreme at $900 looks "reasonable".

Yeah in India Asus is no better than Gigabyte when it comes to after sales service, basically its pick your poison. Asus also has a lot of castration done in BIOS for "product segmentation".

It doesn't matter for highend products like these. Generally never a MB broke on me, I'd rather take that chance with Asus than with GA. I don't know what's happening with GA but the company went downhill

I love the design and looks of many Asus products, tempted to buy them but with their bloatware software and that hideous armoury crate that they can never seem to fix it, I stay away from them.

The software isn't perfect but not nearly as bad as people say it is. It works. Also bloatware software? Not really. Everything is useful or simply don't install it if you don't need temperature readings etc. Ehh, unnecessary criticisms with people nowadays.

I don't have much *personal* experience with Asrock, but used it for a few builds I made for others. EVGA is fine, yes.

ASRock is fine as well. This is not the same company it was in the early 2000's.
