    Another great job Hilbert.

    so very sexy.
    MSI is my favorite Intel mobo manufacturer, but i have been disappointed with their Ryzen 1.0 boards. Asrock had been kicking everyone's butt on the Ryzen platform...i even bought a B series with dual M.2 under $90.00 for the office.
    but now, MSI seems to be making a real effort and i applaud this.
    but fair warning, on my MSI Intel Win10 (kaby lake) laptop -

    Killer Networking software has been nothing but a buggy disaster.
    the control suite Does Not Work under Windows 10. Period.
    the product still works as intended, but you can't fine control anything or even analyse connection speeds. This is a Software Related Issue which is unfortunately very common when (to me) basic internet security protocols are being followed.

    What do you mean DOES NOT WORK. On my rig the Killer Networking can not be STOPPED from working!!!

    After installing Killer E2200, I upgraded the motherboard. TWICE!
    Two different motherboards, both with Intel LAN, instead of Killer, and yet the Killer Software refuses to be uninstalled, no matter what. So it tags along, for years after it has been removed from my rig :D :D
    If you're crying about the speed optimization suite/monitoring tool, don't worry about it, it's sh1t. Get yourself a decent router and monitor/optimize like a man ;)

    @Hilbert Hagedoorn : Many of those MSI MBs have "Ramdrive". Can you do some synthetic tests like Cinebench, Corona, WPrime when Ramdrive is ON/OFF?
    I would like to see if there is performance overhead for BIOS based addressation this uses.
    It can smallest of sizes. As idea is to compare what enabling does to memory. And how that affects CPU performance.

    Edit: And maybe check if there is difference in latency.
