The X399 SLI Plus is very similar to the more expensive Gaming Pro Carbon. The main difference between these two models regards the metal reinforcements and the number of PCIe x16 slots. While on the X399 Gaming Pro Carbon there are five PCIe x16 slots, on the X399 SLI Plus we find "only" four of them. This motherboard should become available by the end of October.


A little gem

Yesterday Intel launched their Coffee Lake desktop parts and meanwhile there are already a couple of impressive overclocking results on HWBOT. At the moment in the first place we find the chinese overclocker "Kovan Yang" who was able to achieve a monstrously high 7'405 MHz using the new Core i7-8700K CPU. Meanwhile also the well-known overclocker Roman "der8auer" Hartung has come across yet another gem hitting 7'300 MHz.


Even better looking

Compared to the previous model, which goes by the name Z270 Gaming Pro Carbon, we see a similar color scheme - as the name suggests - but a reworked layout and a new design for all the heatsinks. Although the design has been improved, we still see cheap plastic covers all over the motherboard.


First MSI X299 microATX model

With the X299M-A Pro, MSI introduces the first MSI X299 micro-ATX motherboard, which is only compatible with the Intel’s Core i5-7640X and i7-7740X. Like the name suggests, the X299M-A Pro doesn't belong to the vendor’s Gaming series.



A downgrade from the Gaming Pro Carbon

The X399 SLI Plus is very similar to the more expensive Gaming Pro Carbon. The main difference between these two models regards the metal reinforcements and the number of PCIe x16 slots. While on the X399 Gaming Pro Carbon there are five PCIe x16 slots, on the upcoming X399 SLI Plus we find "only" four of them. This motherboard should soon be available at an attractive price point.


Another high-end AM4 motherboard

The X370 Gaming M7 ACK from MSI is a high-end motherboard that comes with a few interesting features. Compared to X370 XPower Gaming Titanium, the Gaming M7 ACK should be a bit cheaper but still pack a bunch of features. At a first glance the X370 Gaming M7 ACK looks very similar to the Intel Z270 version with the same naming.
