First up we've got the ITX motherboard. We love the heatsink design on this, and having the Gaming Series logo on a board this small definitely adds character to it. The audio chip is on the opposite side of the motherboard as to where we'd normally see it. This makes for an interesting I/O.


MSI Gaming 3

As we were already award, MSI are following a different naming system to their previous motherboards. Now we start with 'Gaming 3' and for this range we've seen up to 'Gaming 9'. The Gaming Series badge again looks very good here. The top heatsinks have been redesigned too to be black with red accents on each side. Other than this, the board looks almost identical to the previous Z87-G45 Gaming.

MSI Gaming 5, 7 & 9

The Gaming 5, 7 & 9 come with a different heatsink design to the Gaming 3. The heatsinks here still have red accents, although this time they're built in parts of the heatsink, rather than just accents on the side. The southbridge heatsink again incorporates the Gaming Series logo. The Gaming 9 motherboard comes with shielding over the audio tracers and circuitry which suggests a more advanced audio options on this board. Discuss in the OC3D Forums

Not too sure on them really, the gaming series badge looks tacky and I liked the actual dragon heatsinks.
Good to see M.2 connectors on the ATX boards thoughQuote

I personally prefer the current dragon design heatsink on the Z87 board. Have to see one of these in person to see if it catches my attention. So far the videos/photos have not done it.Quote

Not really sure what to think of them. I kind of liked the dragon heatsinks too. It might just be that I need to get used to the new look though.Quote
