MSI X470 Gaming M7 AC review: Easy overclocking for Ryzen+

MSI X470 Gaming M7 AC motherboard

AMD’s Ryzen+ CPUs have arrived and if you’ve read our Ryzen 5 2600/2600X or Ryzen 7 2700/2700X reviews, then you’ll know there’s a lot to like. Indeed, one of the great things about AMD’s new family of processors is that you might not even have to buy a new motherboard to start using them, as every Ryzen+ chip will happily slot into every existing AM4 socket motherboard that’s currently available.

That’s good news for anyone wanting to save a bit of money during the upgrade process, but those erring toward the higher end of AMD’s Ryzen+ spectrum, particularly anyone considering the Ryzen 7 2700 or 2700X, may also want to think about getting one of AMD’s new X470 chipset motherboards instead – like MSI’s rather nippy X470 Gaming M7 AC, for example.
