When Intel launched the 12th generation of Core processors, the major manufacturers also launched motherboards based on the Z690 chipset. They were recently joined by MSI with a MEG Z690 GODLIKE motherboard that goes beyond the standard E-ATX format with a height of 305 millimeters and a width of 310 mm.

A special feature is the 3.5" LCD touch screen to provide metrics such as temperature, clock speed, etc. It is magnetic designed to work independently when connected to the rear USB port, held on a desk or front of the case.

One of the craziest motherboards for enthusiasts with its new MEG Z690 GODLIKE. It has a huge touch screen that is as big as the original Apple iPhone.

You can place the 3.5-inch touch panel anywhere: on your desk, next to the monitor, on the side of your computer, or wherever you want. The screen will show you CPU and GPU temperatures, overlocker settings, quick restart and shutdown buttons, and more.

The MEG Z690 GODLIKE comes with highly customizable ARGB lighting, a cooler made of two Shield Frozr blocks connected by a copper heat pipe and other innovative solutions to keep the temperature under control.

There are four DDR5-6666 memory slots that support capacities up to 128 GB of RAM. The board is powered by dual 8-pin connectors with MSI’s exclusive Core Boost technology. It also has a 20 + 2 phase power supply and supports a current of 105 amps.
