    Default MSI Z97 SLI Krait Edition

    MSI has certainly upped its game with some gorgeous motherboards for Intelís X99 chipset. The dominating X99S SLI Plus is the companyís first all-black motherboard and it looks amazing. Today, MSI has revealed yet again its first black and white Z97 SLI Krait motherboard with an elegant design despite being mediocre in terms of specifications. The Z97 SLI Krait is not a high-end motherboard but it has all the essential features for mainstream overclocking and gaming.





    MSI Z97 SLI Krait; A must have for case modders


    Just looking at this beauty makes me want to empty my pockets right away. MSI has finally listened to its customers especially modders who were demanding a black and white motherboard. Z97 SLI Krait has a simple yet elegant design and the company has managed to put it all together without over doing the color scheme. The all-black PCB accommodates white PCIe slots and striking black and white heatsinks.


    In terms of specifications, MSI did not reveal any information but we can derive some specs from the image shared on its Facebook page. Intelís Z97 chipset and LGA 1150 socket controls the heart of Z97 SLI Krait. There are four DDR3 DIMM slots, two PCIe 3.0 x16 slots, three PCIe 3.0 x1 slots and two legacy PCI slots available for expandibility. I count a six phase VRM design which can deliver enough power to overclock your 4th generation Haswell processor to its limits on air.


    MSI also included a SATA Express port along with six SATA 6GB/s ports for storage. There are plenty of fan headers available along with USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 connectors. It seems like the I/O shield on Z97 SLI Krait consists of four USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, a LAN port, HDMI and VGA ports and lastly 8 channel audio.


    Z97 SLI Krait does not feature MSIís exclusive Audio Boost technology since the motherboard is designed with a focus on aesthetics demanded by case modders. Itís a mid-end motherboard and it will appeal to all those users who wished for a black and white motherboard to compliment their whole system theme. Never the less, Z97 SLI Krait is a great looking motherboard and itís certainly on my wish list when it launches.

    Its pretty amazing it has taken companies so long to do something this simple. The white can really be any color you want it to be by place LEDs inside the case at certain places.

    I seriously need this in my life. My 990FX Sabertooth just doesn't cut it for a black and white build.
