...the MEG X570 Ace is a commendable motherboard carrying enough good points to make it a noteworthy addition to the premium AMD chipset firmament.
Priced at £350, the MSI MEG X570 Ace is a decent motherboard in most respects, housing excellent VRM cooling and power-delivery support, best-in-class RGB lighting, solid M.2 coverage, and an attractive I/O section augmented by 2.5G Ethernet and WiFi 6.
We also like the stealthy look, even if it is a bit busy, and top-notch fan support, though we suppose it should have all of these features, and some more, at the £350 asking fee. The Ace could do with a few tweaks, mind, from increasing the number of SATA ports, voltage-monitoring points and dual BIOSes for the proper enthusiast, and a layout rethink enabling easier connection of a few key features.
Our overall feeling is that the MEG X570 Ace is a commendable motherboard carrying enough good points to make it a noteworthy addition to the premium AMD chipset firmament. Extremely strong in I/O provisioning and RGB lighting, its appeal may not be that wide, but for those that like it, there isn't another board quite as cool.
