MSI has officially unveiled its new X299 TOMAHAWK ARCTIC motherboard, with its freakin' beautiful - and super unique look.
The new X299 TOMAHAWK ARCTIC sports 4 x PCIe x16 slots, 2 x PCIe 1x, and 2 x M.2 slots. MSI's TOMAHAWK range is the company's mid-range series, so this doesn't have all of the bells and whistles that the high-end/enthusiast motherboards will have. We do have MSI's own Mystic Light feature, which will light up the board - and in that white theme, it'll look crazy good in the right combination of RGB LEDs, graphics card/s, and case/fans.
