It looks pretty standard fare, except for the SATA port spacing.
Some PC enthusiasts are so gullible. "A gaming mobo". Right... Any respectible quality mobo will do everything this "gaming mobo" will do and for a lot less money. This board isn't even production ready. They are hyping it to create demand for a over-hyped product. A 16 phase VRM isn't necessarily any better than a 8 phase VRM, other than it might run slightly cooler but that isn't an issue as long as the VRM is properly designed and has a static heatsink.
I'm sure the gullible will be lined up to buy these with Mommy's money.
What do you call people who would buy this motherboard for reasons other than "hype"?
That makes more sense than what I thought: urban/gangsta/graffiti look.
it's remind me with my old 815 motherboard.
it reminds me the old motherboard era
and this is prototype so, better wait for further development
its pretty much a z77 gd65 but with the new nic and sound chips.
and im with the other guy, my msi z77 was nothing but a headache and i will be steering around them in the future too.

Now MSI needs to make a vga of the some style and get some 80mm fans too!
Added a poll. This should be interesting.
Like Asrock, Biostar and Foxconn ?
They need to come ot with color coding imo. Like Black/Red, Blue/White, Orange/Green, Yellow/Purple etc...,. Only prob I have is boards are becoming cheap, low quality but yet we pay a lot of money for them.
I don't even understand how from five years ago to now, people care more about the colors of the board more than the performance.
Sounds like all the reasons (sans right angled 24-pin,) why I got my P9X79 Deluxe.
The 16+2+2+2 phase VRMs for this is over kill, and the ASRock Extreme11 with 24 is even more crazy. All in all, the current capability of the VRMs might be out of the park but they might have extra VRMs for better voltage regulation rather than better current ability.
I do dig the no PCI slot though, it was a goal for my rig when I was putting parts together.
You would be surprised how often people get butt hurt because they don't get something that would typically be considered commonplace nowadays such as PCB color. A lot of people like their computer to look just as nice inside as it does outside and a PCB that looks like a prototype isn't going to do that very well unless that is your theme.
It depends, if that way the end user saves money I think it will only be dependent from the performance.
My Xonar DS starts crying...
Personally I really like the expansion placement on the MSI 990XA-GD55. You still get one PCI in case you need it but you're loaded right up with a ton of 1x slots.
