Here's the first picture of the MSI MPG Z590 Gaming Force, an interesting new product from MSI slotted in its upper-mid tier MPG line of motherboards. This Socket LGA1200 motherboard based on the Intel Z590 chipset is characterized by a Hip Hop design language that's a break away from the company's other MPG Z590 motherboards, with a dash of neon-noir colors. A pair solid ridged heatsinks cool the board's 16-phase CPU VRM. Another set of three heatsinks cover its three M.2 NVMe slots, one of which is PCIe Gen 4 and wired to the LGA1200 socket, and the other two to the Z590 PCH.

Expansion slots on the MPG Z590 Gaming Force include two PCI-Express 4.0 x16 (x8/x8 with both populated), an x16 (electrical PCI-Express 3.0 x4) slot that's wired to the PCH, and a pair of x1 slots. The rest of the board's feature set appears to roughly match the MPG Z590 Gaming Carbon, including a 6-pin PCIe power input to supplement the two 8-pin EPS and 24-pin ATX power inputs, POST debug readout, a fairly premium onboard audio solution, and other connectivity that possibly includes 2.5 GbE.

Ah well, I'll just use this :fear:little guy to show what I think of this abomination of a motherboard :fear::fear:

Also, who dafuq approved this color scheme?! I'm itching to :nutkick: this person.

"is characterized by a Hip Hop design language"
Exactly what part has any resemblance of hip hop? It looks more electronic (duh)/house if it has to be compared to a music genre.

Colors kinda suck, but at least its not filled with RGB and huge flat plates that just traps heat.

Make it grey or something, remove the force force force force force force force force text, and it would be much better

If that's not enough, you've also got "m.2 shield frozr" 6 times and "m.2 lightning gen 4" 2.5 times on it.

an ex Soltek employee is working at Msi ? :D I didn't have a DIY PC back then, but that board reminds me of the eccentricity of computer hardware in the 90's early 2000. That might just be nostalgia, but I found that they had a certain charm.

(It's interesting to see the parallels that can be made between computers and cars. Old and low-end cars and got a crude engine, with bare metal, and wires everywhere. But just show the engine of a modern Mercedes AMG to someone clueless about cars, and he will understand that's it's a tier above because the motor just looks nicer and tidier. Nobody is expected to stare at an engine all day long, yet they still bother to make them looks great. Motherboards seems to follow the same path. Even the way that the electronics components are soldered seems more "organized" nowadays.
(and that's even taking into account all the luxury, overpriced Halo hardware)

Can't use this, not interested, was looking for a board with "FORCE" printed 6 times, not 5, and lit up with RGB, each FORCE with a different color. Oh well.

I don't need the Force to light up. I'm okay with the dark side. :pimp: But having it only 5 times is really unacceptable.

Edit: Oh wait, there is a 6th one above the "m.2 shield frozr" thingy. :laugh:

Edit 2: It's pretty weird how MSi managed to get everyone talk about the design, and not about technical details, like the 6 pin PCI-e power connector below the PCI-e slots.
