Introduction

This is it! Right here is the last piece of hardware that I received as a result from my trip to CES back in January. It only took me four months, but that’s the inadvertent side effect of being the solo act for a bit. The good news is it looks like those days are about to be behind me, with new content trickling in from fresh and familiar faces. But enough about me, let’s talk about MSI.

We truly live in a golden age of computer hardware. It wasn’t too many years ago that only one motherboard manufacturer stood out as the go-to company for top performance motherboards. Today, I can think of three or four really great companies that all compete for being the best in their own particular ways. MSI is one of those companies. Quality, performance and competitive pricing makes this company a clear contender when shopping for a new motherboard, but we’ll need to flesh out the full details of the Z270 Gaming Pro Carbon to determine if this is the board you should have for your Kaby Lake build. We’ll do that soon enough, but let’s first look at a statement from MSI, especially since it’s been a while since we’ve covered one of their products. (Shame on us!)
