Introduction

MSI's X299 XPOWER GAMING AC is one of MSI's more recent X299 motherboards, and it features certain upgrades over the X299 Gaming M7 ACK and X299 Gaming Pro Carbon AC, including improved VRM cooling and many more features.

For starters, the XPOWER line has always been targeted more towards enthusiast power users and overclockers rather than gamers, although the features do overlap.

The motherboard costs a little less than $100 more than the X299 Gaming M7 ACK, so let's see what it has to offer over the rest of MSI's X299 lineup.

Specifications
