    It is MSI's version on an on-board RGB header. Like Asus Aura.

    This is a very sexy motherboard.

    It's basically all-black with hints of silver, and the way you customize the lights is entirely up to you. So yeah, very, very nice visuals on this board.

    I have a MSI X99A Godlike Gaming Carbon. Its their highest-end motherboard but it just doesn't have an RGB led-strip header. I don't really need one of those but the LEDs and the black and silver color scheme with the metallic accents is just so beautiful. Also the layout of both this board and the Godlike Gaming Carbon is almost flawless.

    Definitely the best motherboards I have ever used. I have my i7 5960x overclocked to 4.4ghz @ 1.2v and have gotten is to 4.7ghz stable.

    Besides, I just love the blinky lights. They give me seizures. :-D

    Love how the picture for front USB 3.1 Type C support shows an iPhone. 0.o

    You can always turn on just white lights and with the mobo's deep black & hints of silver it would look veeeery slick.

    I'd be so happy if one day a mainboard came to be where tri-SLI cards are meant to run in slots 1, 4 and 7. My board allows this, but one card runs at PCIe 8x as consequence. The thermal advantage is too huge to give up though.

    I have the same board just the vanilla Godlike, one thing that really annoys me is that after everytime u change the color scheme and shutt down the pc and reboot it again it always reset it to its base color, i kinda stopped with these rgb led things because of that.
