Texas native, no I don't talk like what you see on the big screen.

Been a TF member since 2002, this username is my 3rd iteration. I've kept a keen eye on progressing PC tech for over 10 years now, was a hardware reviewer for 3 years but quit when I noticed the site would let brands bully them for positive remarks. Looks like MSI is biting that bullet finally, since they were one of the biggest. I like to stay on the bleeding edge, but have a knack for helping people with rigs on a budget and making sure people make sensible choices in hardware. I've also done it on an enterprise level for almost 5 years now.

I'm also really into servers and networking but more as a hobby.

If it wasn't for forums I wouldn't be where I am today, I'll say that much lol.

Welcome aboard, I guess!
MSI seems to have good 10th gen. Intel mobos.Good VRM's, OC, specs and M.2 passive cooling.
I'm on one right now and at least turbo boosting is going strong with good temps and XMP.
Say, it the right spelling ya'll or y'all? Or is that not really Texan?

What/who is a good example of an appalachia accent for the uninformed to hear?
Here are some examples, but I'm not quite that bad. I don't have a nasally way of talking and I can actually sound educated when I want. I guess you could say that Appalachian is mostly using different words or shortened versions of them, like winder for window, worsh for wash, yonder for there, mater for tomato, poke for bag, etc.

MSI is a good middle ground, but their pushy PR tactics and under the table schemes with influencers pushed me away 10 years ago and I never looked back. Only board I've bought MSI ever was a specialized WS board I needed for a Xeon as it was miles ahead of the Asus at the time.

Y'all, more of a southern thing in general. Short for you all, so the apostrophe goes after the y. I say that a lot, and sometimes yous guise.
