MSI X370 Gaming Pro Carbon Unboxing and Overview

Today I kick off my AMD Ryzen Coverage with this unboxing and overview of MSI’s X370 Gaming Pro Carbon motherboard, a matte black board with carbon fiber accents and RGB LED Accent lighting sprinkled throughout the board in what looks to be a tasteful manner.

The packaging itself is simple, but for a $180 motherboard, I don’t expect there to be a ton of frills in here.  The box get’s to the point, with what you want on top, and what you need on the bottom, with not a lot of extra things thrown in that you don’t need.

The motherboard itself has nice, simple layout with no one thing standing out immediately, which I like more and more every time I work with and look at this motherboard.  The RGB LED placement looks solid, and with a single RGB header on the motherboard with  a splitter cable that can take that one header and plug into RGB LED Strips, the options for lighting your system with this board seems to hit a nice balance.

Take a look at the video below for the full unboxing and overview.

You can find more from me here on The GWW here, or you can find me on my own website here, although you’ll find more up to date writing here on The GWW.  You can let me know what you think of the motherboard on Twitter or you can subscribe to the channel here.

As I start on my Ryzen coverage and hands on, what are you looking forward to hearing about the most, or what is it that you’re most curious about?  Let me know so I can try to incorporate that into my videos as they come down the line.


Having grown up playing Doom II on LAN against my dad at home, I was on a course of Geekdom from early on. Decent, Doom and Wolfenstein 3D were my games of choice as a young one, and had me hooked on PC gaming. I haven’t turned back since. I’ve turned into a slight hardware enthusiast, and am increasingly exceeding the dollar to performance ratio one might consider a value in my gaming rigs. With gaming in my blood, it took me longer than most to find and start reading comics, but at last, in my latter half of my 20’s, I picked up my first few books and make my weekly trips to the shop, chatting with the staff to see what they’ve read, talking about trades I should read, and getting an education in the world of comics on a weekly basis. I also have a website and YouTube channel, where I occasionally put together a stream of consciousness or review a piece of tech I’ve recently purchased or received. Find me on twitter @geekindad so we can chat, you see my ramblings as a dad and football fan, and anything in between.
