MSI Z170 XPOWER Titanium Review

Introduction and Technical Specifications

MSI Z170 XPOWER Titanium Review


The XPOWER range from MSI have long been at the top of their motherboard selection. Whilst modern motherboards are close enough in performance that the majority of differences are largely either cosmetic or about icing on the cake, the XPOWER managed to remain relevant due to its unique colour scheme of yellow and black, alongside a monster specification that meant it came with every current technology around.

You could be forgiven for expecting the new XPOWER Titanium to follow the yellow and black colour scheme. After all, why would you develop an easily recognisable hue if you're going to change it? MSI clearly disagrees and have taken a serious step away from the regular motherboard colourings to bring us the Titanium. So let's crack on.

Technical Specifications

Specifications follow the XPOWER ethos of throwing everything available at it. USB 3.1, M.2 support, SATA Express, the Titanium has huge bandwidth technologies wherever you look.

Nice review boss, it is a striking motherboard no doubt about it, and it was a bold move by MSi that's for sure, I'd like to see them do a pearl white version with the metallic fleck as I think that might look really nice tooQuote

Tom, you could have given us a few more photos of the board, some more up close....

Review is always without a doubt top notch stuff, reading it as I type this, about 4 pages in, liking what I see so far!

Lovely, though it comes with a price to match, thats expected given its a premium board.Quote

Knowing MSI, there will be a new BIOS out for it too,......

I wonder if they've released a new BIOS for this board yet. And if they did, what problems were fixed?Quote
