MSI X99A GODLIKE GAMING (Intel X99) Motherboard Review 01 |

At Computex earlier this year, MSI showed off their X99 GODLIKE GAMING motherboard for the first time; the board took world records during a live OC event hosted by G.SKILL and made a quick leap to fame. This quick ascension into the lime-light is partly due to its over the top name. Today, I have the X99 GODLIKE GAMING in my system and ready to undergo analysis and testing. This motherboard catches your eye with its aesthetics and reels you in with its insane feature set.

MSI usually diversifies its lineup into its gaming and overclocking series, but the X99 GODLIKE GAMING is a mix of both. In the past, we have seen a diversification of gaming and overclocking motherboards, companies have been trying to target different users with features unique to each line, but now it seems some manufacturers are going back to pre-diversification times with above the top motherboards. Let's see how over the top the X99 GODLIKE GAMING is!

MSI has loaded the X99 GODLIKE GAMING will dual Killer NICs and a Killer Wireless AC card, together they provide a function called Killer Double Shot X3 Pro which I will cover later on. Apart from networking, MSI has provided the GODLIKE with USB 3.1 capabilities as well as M.2, SATA Express, and a slew of overclocking features. This board also has dual Bluetooth adapters, one is hidden under the shield which is dedicated only to the LED capabilities of the motherboards and is used to connect the LEDs to the application on your phone.


The X99 GODLIKE GAMING isn't listed on any US site as of yet, but I predict it will cost more than the $419.99 price tag on the X99A Gaming 9 ACK from MSI since it has more features.
