Good Motherboard. Boots up very quickly. Decent amount of fan headers.

Plenty of Fan headers, and BIOS are easy to navigate.
Why 4 stars?? The 'Z270 PC MATE' badge in the middle of the board looks like it has a removable plastic sheet that needs to be removed. Wrong... Removing this will actually remove the text as well.. There is no protective coating, and it looks cheap.

I had this board laying around waiting for an upgrade to my current gaming PC, however, after realizing how basic this board is, I didn't want to use it as an upgrade anymore. I hate the BIOS, and the fan headers are in pretty weird places, but it's got 2 M.2 headers. Also, for some reason, it loses all of the drivers if the machine crashes, MSI really should figure out how to have that in an on board profile like Asus. I recommend getting an Asus, an ASRock, EVGA, or even Gigabyte/Aorus over MSI every time.

Has two internal usb 3 headers, allows for OC of ram and CPU, has more expansion slots than I plan on using, and has several M.2 slots if I ever need to use them.

Some USB ports don't work well or don't work at all. Difficult to tell if it's a software issue or MOBO issue.
