MSI MEG Z590 ACE Review

Packaging and Contents


The front of the MSI MEG Z590 ACE box features a dark background with a shot of the rear I/O cover in the bottom right. "MEG Z590 ACE" is in the bottom left with the MSI logo and other brand badging along the top.

The back of the box has all the highlights: a top-down shot of the board, several panels detailing prominent features, a shot of the rear I/O, and the specifications list. The box design is well executed and captures the theme of the ACE flawlessly.


The accessories are quite good and include extras like RGB extension cables, thermistors, and even a a pair of keychain screwdrivers and a cleaning brush. Notably absent is any kind of rear I/O shield because the shield is integrated into the board. I also appreciate the inclusion of a USB stick instead of a disk for the drivers, a shift I would like to see more often as disk drives are becoming less and less common.

The full list of accessories includes:
  • Manual and support USB
  • MEG and cable sticker sheets
  • Registration card and reward flyer
  • 4x SATA 6 Gb/s cables
  • Thermistor cable
  • 3x RGB extension cable
  • DP to Mini DP cable
  • Cleaning brush
  • Screwdrivers
  • 4x M.2 mounting hardware
  • Case badge
  • Wi-Fi antenna
