A mouthfull of a motherboard, the MSI X99A XPower Gaming Titanium Edition

The list of features on this motherboard is as long as the name; five PCIe 3.0 16x slots, the  Game Boost overclocking knob, 10 SATA 6Gbps ports, one each of SEx, M.2 and U.2, 13 USB 3.1 ports including a single Type C, WiFi and Bluetooth ... all it is missing is a game fowl in a fruit tree.  [H]ard|OCP did have problems with XMP settings, but nothing they couldn't overcome via manual settings and the issues they had with the Core-i7 6950X turned out to be caused by the PSU and RAM and not the motherboard at all.  If you need a plethora of storage and add-in cards then check this board out as it can handle almost anything you want to stick in it.

"MSI’s X99A XPOWER GAMING TITANIUM is a mouthful, but the XPOWER series has been a favorite of ours here at HardOCP for years now. The latest X99 iteration has much to prove. Is the X99A XPOWER GAMING TITANIUM another pretty face, or is it a fitting addition to the venerable XPOWER line?"

I looked at this mb last week, but went with the gaming 9 ack after my Asus deluxe mb usb over current locked on me.
I've been noticing a slow down with my 5960x. Boot times with this system is over 4 minutes. Yet with my 4770k it's a matter of seconds.

I just figured out that my brand new Corsair AX1500 PSU is causing my system to slow down. Maybe my Asus MB will work again.
