Let's start with the pros... 1) easy to install and the manual is very easy to read for anyone who has never built a system before. 2) multiple PCIe 4.0 x16 slots. 3) two m.2 NVMe drive bays with heatsinks. 4) 6 Sata ports 5) USB 3.1 Gen 2 port and multiple USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports. 6) Embedded HDMI, as long as your CPU provides support for graphics. 7) Two USB 3.0 connectors. 8) Two USB 2.0 connectors. 9) Supports 128GB of DDR4 RAM Now for the cons: (these are just based on personal preferences.) 1) The system fan connectors are located at the bottom of the MB. These are difficult to reach when case fans are installed on the roof of the pc case. -- Also, there aren't enough system fan connectors in my opinion. (x1-CPU fan, x4-system fans, x1-water pump fan). 2) I don't feel like the system bios is very easy to navigate. I'm an experienced PC builder and I had some difficulty trying to navigate the BIOS. I really hope MSI comes up with a better BIOS platform in the future. Overall, I think the MSI Tomahawk Wi-fi is a great x570 motherboard, but in my opinion you shouldn't spend more than $220 for it.

I purchased this motherboard for building a custom VR rig. This is not a full-size ATX, it is slightly smaller, which helps with system building. I also recently purchased a GIGABYTE X570 AORUS Master that cost almost $100 more. It is similar in spec and supports the AMD Ryzen 9. I would say that the MSI sacrifices a few frills, for example, there is no LED code readout on the motherboard and no power or reset switches. In addition, the onboard fan is exposed whereas, with the AORUS, it is hidden under a shield. However, I never see that fan spin, only when it boots. The MSI has a small advantage in DDR4 speeds up to 4600MHZ vs the AORUS supports speeds up to 4400MHZ. I've also used both BIOS's and IMO, they are similar in that they both offer granular advanced control with voltages as well as an easy mode for folks who are just starting out with overclocking. Overall, I think this is a great value for money especially if you are budget conscious and want to get the most for your money.

Insane board well worth the money, performs on par with high end boards within a couple degrees. Wasn't ready for the weight difference between this and Tomahawk B450 this thing is packed with more than enough features for the average consumer definitely recommend this board

THE MSI MAG X570 Tomahawk WiFi board was an EXCELLENT choice for a first timer trying to customize a desktop gaming pc. The build included a Ryzen7 3700X cpu, Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 gpu, 32 Gb TridentZ neo DDR4 ram and a 2Tb 970 Evo+ SSD. The heat sinking on the X570 Tomahawk is awesome (I just used the AMD fan). Instructions with the mother board are very clear. Yes at $240 the X570 is in the high middle, but I’m very pleased with the outcome. I rated “warmth” at 5star because everything runs cool. The PS is a Corsair RM850x, and the system is very quiet. For whatever reason, I’m asked to grade it on “thickness”. So I’ll say that I bought an NZXT 510 Elite case and the X570 seemed a perfect match. The fans and rgb lighting are pretty slick also. In fact, Windows 10 Pro was the only real disappointment.

Pairing this with a 3700x. Motherboard has good vrms, all the features you need. Good amount of USB ports and the new pcie 4.0 slot. Good bios. Will support Ryzen 4000 series.

User says:

The best sub-$400 X570 motherboard in the market right now. Unfortunately, the first board was DOA and I had to wait for almost 2 weeks for a replacement because it was so popular and was sold out. But the wait was worth it. Buy at MSRP. Do not feed into 3rd party's price gouging.

Put it in my first pc build. Has been working flawlessly and has surpassed all expectations. LTT S- tier

User says:

Keeps my ryzen 5 3600 under 65c while overclocking to 4200hz all core. I'm using a 4 years old evo 212 cooler. To compare, asus tuf gives me around 75c under the same load
