MSI X299 Gaming Pro Carbon AC Preview

Customisation

You would imagine that swappable heat sink covers would be far down the list of things you want your new expensive flagship motherboard purchase to come with, but you just need to glance at the shots below of it filled with gold or silver in place of the default carbon inserts to understand how revolutionary it is. We're not that keen on gold generally, it's a bit showy for us austere English types, but here it works perfectly against the black PCB to produce an effect that has us hunting for gold coolant.

Oh my word! Did MSI just release a board I actually want! Kudos to you boys. Tom grab some tins get those accents painted, white with red stripes Quote

You could probably 3d print replacement parts in the color of choice too, can't wait to see if MSI do this same thing with X399Quote

I really do like the ability to customize the heatsink covers much more easily than what's been possible in the past.Quote

Both the 7600k and the 7700k is rated at 91W (Does hypertreading not add heat?)
Do the TDP of 112W for the new kabylake-x hint a higher OC potential? Or does it not work that way Quote

MSI might be on track with this one. I think Kabby Lake X is complete waste of time and money on X299 platforms. You can't use half of the functions of the boards.Quote
