If there's one thing we like nearly as much as exotic cooling, its proper VRM cooling. The Skylake-X debacle taught us all a lesson in VRM cooling, but MSI is better prepared this time around. The MEG Creation features massive beefy heatsinks over the 19-phase digital power delivery subsystem, along with dual-eight-pin connectors and ten PWM fan connections. The large heatsink over the chipset conceals three M.2 slots. Yes, three.
Other accommodations include eight USB 3.0 ports, a USB 3.1 Type-A port, a USB 3.1 Type-C port, dual Ethernet LAN ports, two Wi-Fi antenna ports, five audio jacks, an optical S/PDIF out, a reset button, and a power button.
