MSI Z97 SLI Krait Motherboard Review

Introduction and Technical Specifications

MSI Z97S SLI Krait Review


We recently gave you a preview of the latest MSI motherboard, the Z97S Krait. 

Taking a cue from the most popular colour around at the moment, or rather lack of colour, the Krait is a monochrome offering with no colour to be found. The perfect fit for those of you who have tired of the endless sea of red or blue that dominates the majority of colour schemes.

If the monochrome nature of it wasn't sufficient to pique your interest then the price certainly will be. We've regularly mentioned how affordable the majority of Z97 motherboards are, and the MSI Krait takes this to new extremes.

Does the performance belie the low price tag?

Technical Specifications

Certainly if you look through the specifications all of the major boxes are ticked, with plenty of PCI slots, high memory overclocking capabilities and support for both SATA Express and M2 SSDs.

Hmm, I wonder if anything there will be improved with future BIOS updates. Sure seems a shame, as that is one sexy and well priced board. Great review!Quote
