MSI MEG Z390 9th Generation GODLIKE Motherboard
The ACE up MSI's sleeve appears to feature a 13-phase VRM, down from the Godlike's 18-phase power design. This will likely only affect extreme overclockers—anyone chasing a world record with LN2 cooling will probably want to opt for the Godlke SKU.Both motherboards feature a pair of 8-pin PCI Express power connectors. The MEG Z390 ACE also boasts three reinforced PCIe x16 slot like its pricier sibling, along with a fixed I/O shield, at least six SATA 6Gbps ports, and heavy duty heatsinks.There are some other differences between the ACE and Godlike than just the power delivery. The ACE does not have an onboard OLED display, and only one of the three M.2 slots has a shield. There's also no indication that MSI will be bundling a streaming add-in card or an M.2 card. And finally, we can see that there's 'only' one GbE LAN port, though it does come with onboard Wi-Fi connectivity.
