MSI H270 Gaming Pro ITX Motherboard + i5-7600 + 16GB DDR4 + 128GB M. MSI H270 Gaming Pro ITX Motherboard inc. Box, IO Shield, Backplate. Intel i5-7600 CPU (Mounted, Intel Fan included, CPU brown box less cover). Skill Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2x8GB) DDR 4 2400 15-15-15-35. 2 2242 NVMe Drive (Mounted, no Windows install). No Windows 10 included on the 128GB Boot Drive. IO shield is included (that shield you install in your case for your motherboard input outputs). The board has a WiFi adapter on it and an antenna is included. The antenna is not the original MSI one, I repurposed one from a Gigabyte Z270n build. You can connect to internet via wireless instead of running a long ethernet cable. The blue cover saying i5 is not included (lost it) but the brown box inside is included with the plastic container. M2 2242 NVMe 128GB SSD is mounted already on the motherboard (the slot is underneath). Skill Ripjaws V 16GB Ram already installed on Motherboard and XMPd. Hook up a power supply, connect case peripherals, connect HDMI to PC, turn it on, install Windows, and you have a working PC. This is an ITX motherboard please make sure your case supports installation of an ITX board (the mounting holes are different to ATX or Micro ATX). Many cases do support a variety of motherboards but nonetheless check to make sure. Motherboard tested and fully operational, Bios easy to work with. This is about as good as it gets in this chipset. 16GB Ram and i5-7600. While the i7-7700 is technically the highest end CPU for this chipset, in applications that do not heavily hyperthread the i5 and i7 should be ostensibly equivalent (slight bias to i7 due to better binning and 100MHz stock/300MHz boost increase). Lease be aware I cannot control delays incurred by the postal carriers. Addendum Suggestions and Q&A. When working with the motherboard, do not do so over carpet and preferably wear a strap for ESD protection. While modern motherboards are quite resilient compared to the older ones ESD can still damage small components like surface mounted capacitors or CMOS/MOSFETs. Do not try to install the Intel stock fan. I included the backplate that allows you to install the fan but you will have to remove the CPU socket to install. Do not attempt this if you are not an expert PC builder or technician. For cooling the CPU, just get an aftermarket air cooler, one that includes mounting brackets/hardware. These will keep the CPU below 60c while the Intel stock fan the CPU will run in the 70s and 80s under load. 58c on CPU in bios? Intel CPU fan is horrid at cooling. Under same condition with a low profile cooler like Thermaltake Engine 27 yields temperatures slightly above room temperature, i. If you want a cool running PC install an after market cooler. What CPU cooler do I need to complete a PC build with this motherboard? You get a range of options but for relatively cheap. Cooler Master Master Air has RGB but could run pricey as stocks thin. The Thermaltake Engine 27 is the lowest profile CPU cooler I know of (make sure to get the one rated for TDP of 70W since there are two models) and works well with locked Intel CPUs. My personal top two recommendations are Be quiet! Any of these recommendations will keep your CPU cool and long lasting. For larger budgets there is liquid cooling, be it all in ones or custom loops. If you are under severe space restrictions but have a 120mm fan slot on your case for exhausting, an All in One 120mm will cover your CPU cooling needs. Is the 128GB NVMe SSD supplied enough for a modern Windows 10 machine? It is common in most PC builds to run Windows 10 (and all essential programs) off of the fast NVMe drive and use a slower Solid State Sata Drive (SSD) or a Hard Disk Drive (HDD) for your general storage, files, games, movies and so on. If you use 128GB for your programs and OS, it is plenty. Do you recommend the i5-7600K or i7-7700K instead for this motherboard? No, it is not worth it. The motherboard does not have VRMs that support overclocking (although an experienced overclocker may pull an extra 100 or 200MHz out of this chipset) so those chips will run at stock speeds. No point paying extra for a feature you will not be able to use. Games and most popular software applications strongly load one or two cores and do not scale with hyperthreading. Since the i7-7700 and the i5-7600 have very strong and very similar single and dual core performance the difference between the two is small. I personally do not recommend that you sell the i5-7600 to replace with a i7-7700. Will this run Fortnite?
