The MSI X370 Gaming M7 ACK is clearly ahead of the game and the X470 Gaming M7 AC takes that learning to polish a product fit for Gaming. The overall product experience nudges it past the competition and it’s hard to complain that this board provides value in the high-end space. You’re move.
Overall, this is a confident release from MSI. It boasts a strong feature set, great performance out of the box, and a design that doesn’t overdo the RGB lighting like some do. It is on the pricier side, but if you can justify the price to yourself, it comes heartily recommended.
