Affordable Z270 motherboard
But no new models
Also MSI presented upcoming boards but there were no new models we’ve not yet written about. Due to a leak a few weeks ago we already know that MSI will offer the X370 XPower Gaming Titanium and the B350 Tomahawk. Nevertheless MSI has mentioned to create gaming grade motherboards based on AMD’s X370, B350 and A320 chipset.
MSI M.2 heat trap?
With the launch of the Intel 200-series chipset, MSI has revealed their M.2 Shield. To prove that it helps in decreasing temperatures they had Tom’s Hardware test exactly that. Meanwhile Steve Burke from Gamer’s Nexus has had a look at the same and he states that there is a chance that the M.2 Shield actually increases temperatures.

The H270M Mortar Arctic Edition from MSI is a mid-range motherboard that comes with a few interesting features.

As you might know already the Z270 XPower Gaming Titanium is MSI’s latest flagship model, based on Intel’s Z270 Express chipset. Apparently it comes with an armada of features, such as three M.2 slots for example. Compared to the predecessor, which went by the name Z170A XPower Gaming Titanium, they’ve kept the color scheme, but improved almost all the little details.
MSI announces that their MSI Z270 Gaming M5 and M7 are going to be bundled with Intel’s 600p Series SSD. This promotion was already available a few months ago but in combination with the MSI X99A Gaming Pro Carbon. If you plan on buying a MSI Z270 Gaming M5 or M7 you will receive a free Intel 600p 256GB NMVe SSD.
