MSI MPG Z790 Carbon WiFi Review

Test Setup and Clock Speeds

MSI MPG Z790 Carbon WiFi Preview

Test Setup

MSI MPG Z790 Carbon WiFi - 1.10 BIOS
Intel Core i9-13900K
G.Skill Trident Z5 Neo 4800 32GB
Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti
Sabrent Rocket 2TB
Corsair 5000T
Corsair RM1000i
Corsair H170i 420
Windows 11

Clock Speeds

The Intel Core i9-13900K is a complete monster out of the box, boosting to pretty much as high as we can go. With the MSI Carbon we managed to squeeze an extra 100 MHz out at the top end, and this was available across all P Cores. It's a massively impressive processor that is far more likely to be thermally limited than any power considerations, particularly so on a board with the 105A power stages we have here.

I'd like to understand why you didn't provide even one full review of an AM5 motherboard until now, but you've done full reviews of several Z790 boards on day 1.Quote

You can only review what you have to review.Quote

I'm pretty sure that OC3D had a ROG Crosshair X670E Hero on hand in order to be able to review the 7000 series CPUs with a ROG Crosshair X670E Hero.

Considering that the other motherboard previews also had photos which indicated that OC3D had the motherboards, and yet only posted 3 page previews instead of full reviews like the Z790 motherboards got, the question still remains.Quote

Thanks for posting the price; that saves me from reading on.

I might not get away with it, but more than €/$ 200 for a board just seems excessive outside of specialized workstations or servers.Quote
