The contents of the MSI MPG Z590 Gaming Carbon WiFi’s packaging are really complete, with everything you would need for your build, including a little screwdriver. Unfortunately the screwdriver doesn’t work with the smaller M.2 screws, but I guess you should have your own precision tools set. I also really like that MSI replaced the typical driver CD with a thumb drive that looks very sweet too. Bonus points are given for the brush in the box as well, complete with two ends, one softer and one stiffer to dislodge more stubborn dirt during your maintenance later in the MSI MPG Z590 Gaming Carbon WiFi’s lifecycle.

The Gaming Carbon packs in a 16-phase VRM with 75a power stages. There are an additional 1+1 for the system agent and IGP too. Dual 8-pin power connectors mean this board will handle any kind of overclock you want to throw at it. Your cooling will give out long before the board itself hits a wall. In fact, just running Adaptive Boost will stress anything less than a chiller or TEC!

Coming in at £311/$355 at the time of writing this, the MSI MPG Z590 Gaming Carbon WIFI has quite a lot to offer for the price. As with most PC components, motherboard prices are creeping up these days. While this isn’t the cheapest Z590 board, it offers plenty of bang for the buck and has some additional features that others don’t. Looking at similarly priced boards from competitors, this one has a couple of extra features that aren’t seen on all making the cost just that much more bearable.

The Gaming Carbon has been the top model in the MPG series from MSI for some time. It does not matter which socket or chipset is on the board. The MSI MPG Z590 Gaming Carbon WiFi can also be understood in the same way. For gamers, it should have everything they need and offer slightly upscale features. This time the board has got a twin, so to speak – the MSI MPG Z590 Gaming Force dispenses with the WLAN adapter and is more colorful, but otherwise designed and equipped identically ( see Intel Z590 overview ). The most recent version of the carbon motherboard has reduced its playful character a little, but not completely discarded it.
