MSI are now teasing their upcoming Z270 KRAIT Gaming motherboard, which has dual M.2 SSD slots and an internal IO cover. 
Right now, Intel has not released any solid information regarding their Kaby-Lake CPUs and their upcoming Z270 motherboard platform, though we already have some leaks which confirm that the new Z270 platform will add four additional PCIe 3.0 lanes for M.2 storage
MSI has only revealed half of their Z270 KRIAT Gaming motherboard, though we can already see that the company is using a very different aesthetic with their upcoming Z270 series motherboard. Firstly can see that MSI will be using right angled SATA connections with their new motherboard for better cable management with modern cases and that MSI will be using a different design for their PCI express x16 slots.

Looking at this new motherboard it is clear that MSI's 200-series of motherboards are not a simple refresh of their 100-series counterparts, making some significant upgrades to their feature-set as well as changes to their aesthetics. 

Let's hope Intel will officially reveal Kaby Lake soon, as we would certainly love to see what other motherboards MSI and other manufacturers have up their sleeves.

That being said,

I really love the colour scheme. Not to sold on the "krait" font. Seems a little immature or too "street" to me.Quote
