This isn't going to be the best motherboard on the market, or maybe even in its price range. However it works well enough, and I like the more subtle back/edge lit LED as opposed to other mobos that shine it directly in your face.

Beautiful looking board. Has everything I need. Like I mentioned in my main text, POST time is a little longer than I expect it to be which kind sucks, but I hope that gets better in an update!
UPDATE: Mystic Light is pretty frustrating. It doesn't coordinate with the RGB Wraith spire well and the G.Skill RAM at all, so I have to use G.Skill's own configurator for that, which is also pretty terrible. I'm lightly considering selling this and buying the Crosshair VI Hero.

Really nice looking board with just the right features and more, kind of lacking in terms of sata ports and included accessories but overall fantastic. And has RGB.

from completed build Blood Over the HoRYZEN (My First Build)
As this was my first motherboard I ever used in a build, I was impressed by this one. The LED effects are fantastic, the build quality is nice, and the armor + matte black finish really gives this motherboard a nice appearance.
For a beginner, I was glad to see an EZ Debug LED system implemented in this board. Sometimes a continuous beep happened when the computer didn't POST among the debug LEDS, and sometimes only the debug LEDs lit up. Odd. The software is pretty good and does what it's supposed to do, and I love the LED effects it has. Overclocking is great with this motherboard as well; I was able to overclock my RAM (rated at 2800 MHz) to 2933 MHz at 1.32 volts (still tweaking with it though) and my Ryzen 7 1700 to 3.9 GHz @ 1.3875 volts with no issues.
However, when turning the system on, I notice that the debug LEDs will light up in the processor & RAM area before finally booting up the system and passing the POST. On top of that, POST times are honestly horrible; it takes a good 15-20 seconds before the PC passes the POST. With all of that being said, I had to take off a star.
If you want fast boot times, this is not the motherboard for you. If you want a decently priced X370 motherboard with a great overclocking support, user friendly POST debug & UEFI/BIOS, then this is the motherboard for you.

A solid motherboard, AM4, and X370. My only issue still is an annoying red LED signaling an integrated GPU issue according to the manual. However, Ryzen 5 (or 7/3) does not have integrated graphics... No option to disable this check in the BIOS yet. I contacted MSI support who were just becoming aware of this. Hopefully a BIOS update will be out soon. In the mean time... Electrical tape?

Packed with a a great set of features and a user-friendly bios, this motherboard has become one of my favorites and a must have for a beginner X370 motherboard. Featuring an 8+2 phase power delivery, 2x Turbo M.2 NVME support, SLI / CF support, DDR4 3200+ support, USB 3.1 gen 2, and Military Class 4 protection, this motherboard offers a great experience for beginners and enthusiasts alike.

from completed build iLLuminator
• Great RGB lighting
• Neat looking carbon scheme on the VRM heatsinks
• The ability to support future Ryzen chips until 2020
• EZ Debug LEDs for easier troubleshooting
• Not the best Ryzen motherboard for overclocking
• VRM heatsinks can get really hot easily without any load
• BIOS updates are still buggy
