MSI X99A Godlike motherboard updated

MSI X99A Godlike review

With regard to the technical characteristics, the new MSI X99A Godlike Carbon Edition is the same as the first version that the manufacturer launched long except now incorporates a USB 3.1 controller that adds two Type-A and Type-C ports on the panel rear connector plate.

Removing this data, the plate is equal in terms of technical features, but you have completely changed the aesthetics because now all the PCB is black and has been added ELD RGB lighting configurable by the user.

Therefore we are facing the most advanced base MSI motherboard compatible with Intel socket LGA 2011-3 and based on the Intel X99 chipset, compatible with DDR4 RAM memory.

Manufacturer incorporates unique features such as Mystic Light (allowing control lighting from an application on the smartphone), network card Killer DoubleShot X3-Pro (which includes dual-band WiFi) connectivity Turbo M.2, five PCI-Express 3.0 10 SATA 6 Gbps (SATA 3) and even a SATA Express connector, so the MSI X99A Godlike Carbon Edition has everything you could possibly need in our high-end system.

In addition, this motherboard MSI gives (as you can see in the picture above) a USB stick 3.1 Type-C High speed, although they have not said what capacity has (presumably be as little 64GB). MSI has not said when will we see this new plate Carbon Edition in stores or at what price, but considering that it is the top end of the company can expect it to be quite expensive.

On the other hand, MSI will soon present other plates with this new styling Carbon Edition, but have not revealed approximate dates for this.

In addition, the RJ-45 connector for LAN LED lighting has to have it in sight when we go to the back of the box.

MSI has announced the upcoming launch of this new motherboard but has not said arrival to the shops or the price at which it will. Yes you said that together with the plate will give a mouse MSI DS Gaming B1 will come included in the box of the plate itself.

App not compatible

1GB RAM or more

Subway Surfers Needs 1GB RAM

This is weird since the download page clearly shows that it is compatible with 512MB RAM devices.

Earlier this month the Subway Surfers got compatible with 512MB support but the company has now made it incompatible. Let us hope rest of the amazing game titles for WP remain compatible since most of the cheap devices come with 512MB RAM (lumia 520, 620, 625, and 720).
