MSI X99A Tomahawk Motherboard Launched; Stealth Black Look
The Tomahawk series from MSI is great value for money and it offers everything that a gamer would need without the fuss. You get everything you need, the great look as well as excellent build quality. Some features are those which you would expect from a high-end motherboard, but this comes in the mid-range category. It leaves out all the unnecessary features as well. The MSI X99A Tomahawk motherboard is a great example.
Some key features of the MSI X99A Tomahawk motherboard are as follows:
- M.2 and U.2 ports
- Reinforced PCIe lanes
- No RGB LEDs
- Dedicated audio sections
- Beefy power circuitry
- Dual Gigabit ethernet ports
All these features make the MSI X99A Tomahawk motherboard except for the lack of LEDs of course. But then again you can use aftermarket LEDs and case lighting as well so not a huge loss there either. You are on the other hand getting a really high-quality motherboard. Every offering can’t be perfect and in this price range, you can not expect much anyways.
MSI X99A Tomahawk motherboard has a stealth black look which will look great in your PC build no matter what you color scheme is. It will look especially great if you have an all black look going on.
Other mid-range motherboards have also been coming out recently we saw Asus rolling out a few of their new products which had Aura RGB lighting. So if this MSI X99A Tomahawk motherboard does not do the trick for you then you can check that one out.
If you really want those LEDs then the Asus offering would be the better option for you. For me, that is not much of a big deal and I am not that picky about the details.
