MSI Z170A Gaming M7

MSI is jumping onto lớn Apple’s bandwagon in the naming of its USB 3.0 ports, calling them USB 3.1 Gen 1. Both names are considered valid, yet the newer one seems intended to lớn confuse buyers inkhổng lồ thinking they’re getting more than they paid for. By traditional names, the Z170A Gaming M7 includes a pair (Type A and Type C) of rear panel USB 3.1 ports (10 Gb/s), a pair of USB 3.0 ports that are confusingly given the same color, three USB 2.0 ports, two HDXiaoMi MI ports, a DisplayPort output, GbE, a CLR_CMOS button & the traditional five analog/one optical audio connections.

The analog audio jacks are gold-plated to assure oxide-free connections, the network port is lit from the inside and the CLR_CMOS button lights up when engaged. You’ve sầu probably noticed that one of the USB 2.0 ports is vertical, and that’s because MSI wants it to stvà out as supporting its USB Flashback function. That’s right. MSI adds a CPU-miễn phí, DRAM-không lấy phí firmware upgrading feature just in case you try to install a newer-Mã Sản Phẩm CPU that requires a firmware upgrade lớn boot.

MSI outlines the two CPU-driven PCIe x16 slots with aluminum braces that, in turn, are supported by the plastic beneath. These may help prevent the slot from opening up in the middle (losing contact with the card). But they vày little lớn prevent a heavy card from ripping the slot off the board during the rough handling that occasionally occurs when shipping a complete system. Flipping the board, I only found one extra attachment point per slot.

As with the other boards in today’s round-up, those two slots cốt truyện 16 lanes in either a x16-x0 or x8-x8 configuration via automatic switches that detect the second thẻ. The third x16-length slot is tied via four lanes lớn the Z170 PCH, supporting CrossFire but not three-way SLI.

All four PCIe x1 slots are open ended, but using them forces the four-lane slot to lớn a single lane. This probably doesn’t matter to you if you’re using a bunch of single-slot graphics cards khổng lồ drive sầu displays in 2D mode though.

The top board by both price and features in today’s comparison, MSI"s Z170A Gaming M7 has two PCIe x4 M.2 slots. Though both slots tư vấn PCIe 3.0 x4 connections, total bandwidth is limited by the chipset’s 32 Gb/s DXiaoMi MI interface. SATA mode is also possible, again limited by the DXiaoMI when combined with other PCH-supported devices. All of these limitations are traceable baông chồng khổng lồ Intel; there"s little MSI can bởi about them.

Two USB 3.0 front-panel headers are lined up along the front edge, one facing upward above sầu all the cards and the other facing forward behind the top thẻ. Of course, you could hotline these USB 3.1 Gen 1 if you preferred, but their bandwidth is still limited lớn USB 3.0’s 5 Gb/s.

Referred lớn as trò chơi Boost, the red button in the Z170A Gaming 7’s lower-front corner includes a dial with eight different overclocks. By skipping a few numbers, MSI is able to lớn tell people that these go khổng lồ 11. Presets range from 4.3GHz at 1.25V (màn chơi 1) lớn 5GHz at 1.45V (level 11) skipping levels 3, 5, 7 and 9. Other on-board controls include the Flashback button for USB firmware updates, a “Slow Mode” switch khổng lồ drop the CPU to a more stable frequency when using LN2 (khổng lồ avoid “cold bug” conditions under light load) và a switch to enable MSI’s “Gaming Hotkey” keyboard mapping function.

MSI slides its front-panel audio connector forward slightly from the bottom-rear corner, but probably not enough khổng lồ avoid the rare (but dreaded) problem of poorly designed case cables. The company also adds labeling stickers và a thicker case badge lớn a Z170A Gaming M7 installation kit that has but four SATA cables & a flexible SLI bridge.

Software And Firmware

MSI Commvà Center still provides software overclocking, power/fan controls và even helped us determine the actual BCLK limit of firmware (since the firmware would allow nonfunctional BCLK settings). Commvà Center và firmware overclochồng settings are linked.

Command Center’s advanced voltage menu offers a surprise setting in CPU Ring Ratio, which is not a voltage. Core Voltage is confirmed through CPU-Z.

MSI fixed its DRAM settings thực đơn, though this particular setting has a troublesome history. When it doesn’t work, it causes the program khổng lồ crash.

The “Real-time Onboard Temperature Sensors Control” menu adds an interesting look lớn system stats.

MSI Gaming App includes a quick overclocking utility (4.3 GHz at 1.25V), “Eye Rest” monitor brightness và contrast settings, keyboard/mouse settings and on-board LED controls that include the network port"s LED.
