    Hi everyone,

    It's time for a new project!

    I am quite relieved to announce it will be ATX, so I have some wiggle room to work again!

    First components should start rolling in by the bunch but the very first part that kicked this off and I am very proudly supported by MSI is the MSI Z170A XPOWER "Titanium Edition".

    I looked at a lot of pictures of this and photos just do no translate how amazing the finish is on the board. The whole thing is a metallic silver and looks outstanding. I'm really hoping a play with light and some video footage can share how great this looks.

    Heatsinks on this board make the board surprisingly heavy!

    Not just for look, power delivery and components on this board are top notch. Hopefully the CPU holds up its end of the bargain come OCing time.

    Loving all the metal and metallic finishes, going to make for a great themed build.

    8+4pin CPU power just some more hints that its intended take as much juice as you can throw at it.

    Not sure about the OC dashboard, but im interested to play with it!

    Really looking forward to working with this board!

    That's it for right now but a friend just arrived for this motherboard so more pictures are not too far away!

    I hope you enjoy.

    What did the Bitspower block say to the MSI X-POWER?

    "Oh HAI FRIEND!"

    Coming from a jewelry making background I really appreciate Bitspowers quality plating.

    Now the interesting part. I'm curious to see what the consensus is around the FCB for this board. I have a feeling it will be...

    I have my own opinion, i'm not overly fond of it, I appreciate that they are trying to replicate the metallic silver of the board. Perhaps some artistic flare can make it seem more at home. I'm sure you'll see...
