The King is Dead, Long Live the King! – Ryzen 3900X & Ryzen 3700X Review

This is the MSI MEG X570 Godlike

The other board I received in my kit for the launch review was an MSI X570 Godlike. The Godlike is the top end board, part of the MEG lineup from MSI targeted at enthusiasts. The Godlike has basically every feature MSI could think of either on the board or in the box waiting.

The X570 godlike is a massive board meeting EATX sizing due to the component layout and space needs for ancillary controllers. But fear not, beyond what’s on the board there are a few goodies in the accessory box to further enhance what the Godlike can do.

The MSI X570 Godlike even includes an LCD display that had animations of lucky the dragon or whatever else you want to set it for through their software.

A few of the cool features of the MSI Godlike are:

  • Corsair RGB port

That’s right for those who like myself have something like a commander pro or other corsair RGB enabled devices, it looks like there’s a built on port at the top right of the board and I look forward to seeing how Corsair collaborated and to what extent we can expect to sync with MSI and Corsair gear.

  • Infinity mirror design on the IO Cover

This is a mirror looking area to the left of the CPU socket built into the plastic shroud over the rear IO. This has RGB LEDs inside which create an infinity mirror effect when illuminated.

  • MSI M.2 Xpander-Z Gen 4

This is an Add-in card which supports dual PCIe M.2 drives and can use a PCIe slot to

  • MSI 10G ‘SUPER LAN’ network card

This is MSI’s solution for those who need 10G LAN which employs an Aquantia chipset otherwise, you can just run the onboard which is either 1Gbps Killer E2600 or 2.5Gbps Killer E3000.


I do have to say, the X570 Godlike is one sexy board, and I look forward to working on it and hopefully solving the issues we had early on so i can do some overclocking with this beast.
