    I didn’t need RGB or Wi-Fi and I’m not planning on doing any serious overclocking, so I didn’t see any need to order a more expensive motherboard. It ticks all my boxes, has PCI 4.0 and should be relatively futureproof. MSI’s BIOS is also really easy to navigate and tweak which is a bonus.

    This board is a mixed bag. Works fines and has nice features for the money, but it has since come to my attention that it has improper cooling on the VRM and can be an issue, depending on the setup (though I must admit, my temps seem very fine at around 50/55C max) see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xbyWKufthS4

    Oh and for some reason the UEFI BIOS is nerfed from the version I always see everyone else have on their MSI motherboards. What's that about?

    But actually what erks me the most is the very sparse, poor documentation. It barely has anything in the PDF and they certainly didn't bother to provide a hard copy of the manual. But it's ridiculous that basic things aren't clarified, even online. Like RAM details, RAID configuration/setup, etc. In fact I couldn't even get the RAID feature to work, heaven forbid I'm the only person on the planet that wants a separate boot drive from my storage raid configuration, are you kidding me?

    Otherwise it performs fine and has nice things like USB 3.2 gen 2. But I have a feeling This board will hold me back before the CPU does.

    The BIOS was very easy to navigate. Responsive and intuitive. I'm not a huge overclocker, so I cannot speak to the quality of overclocking you may get out of this board. Only giving 4 stars because the box only included a Quick Start instruction manual rather than a full users manual, which I found really weird. Was able to find the full manual on MSI's website though.

    It’s a no-frills X570 board with less than stellar VRMs. I’m not a hardcore OCer, but it is a little disappointing to know that I wouldn’t be able to achieve a great overclock if I was. I really wish that more newer board came with a front I/O USB 3.2 Gen 2 connector, but I won’t blame that entirely on MSI. I do find it odd that MSI delivered such great B450 motherboards and have since seemingly dropped the ball. I have had some trouble with a single m.2 slot, but I am hoping to work out the kinks as I dive further into the bios and what not. I do like the aesthetic that doesn’t beat you over the head with LEDs and odd PCB designs.

    The MSI X570A-PRO motherboard seems great so far, no fancy built-in led stuff, just what I wanted. 2 M.2 slots on the front. Super easy to flash Bios as well.

    A good layout and thankfully devoid of all the cosmetic LEDs that I see elsewhere. If you plan to use your chassis front-panel audio, note that this board has the connector in the lower rear corner and that may be quite a stretch for some cables.

    Awesome motherboard, especially for the price. IO shield was a little tough to press into place (NZXT 510i), but not a big deal. MSI's BIOS is super easy to use as well

    Great motherboard. Was kinda scared that the chipset fan wasn't spinning, but I found it's designed to only run when it needs to. You also don't need the extra 4 pins along with the 8 to get power to the CPU. Works perfectly fine with just the 8.

    Good and cheap x570 motherboard, but msi needs to fix their chipset fan connector.
