Very niche product, from the same company you can get much better motherboard options like MSI MAG Z690 Tomahawk WIFI at nearly half price (290€ vs 530€) not for the same crowd of course.

I find that MSI Center software is heavy on system resources, same as MSI Dragon was - weird that they cant make that lighter...

It's there for a reason, it's for extreme overclocker with ln2, usb io got messed up during benching sometimes.

MEG series with unimpressive VRM cooling. Whats up with this MSI?
Moreover, it's a freaking unify, it's supposed to be one step below godlike.

Not a "bad" motherboard but I don't see who this product is targeting. Looks kinda pointless (or niche? maybe) to me.
