Summary: I installed this board as a replacement for a bad mobo. Everything went together well, and I decided to do a clean OS install to avoid any conflicts with the new board. However, the video did not work on startup. I reseated all the components, one at a time and started up each time as well. Still, no video. I switched out the RAM with a different manufacturer, and I was able to get video.
Summary: Pros- It works perfectly fine when used with a Phenom II X4. No issues there. Cons- Even though MSI has stated that it will work with all FX processors, it works... Questionably well with an FX-8350. It cannot handle running all eight cores at once, and will bluescreen under heavy load when using the 8350. Realtek audio has incompatibilities with many programs, and is the onboard in this case. Overall- A good budget board that will work well enough with lower end CPUs.
Summary: The motherboard itself is fine and bared no immediate issues during installation or use over the course of over a year since I originally purchased it. However it should definitely be known that the VRM's are definitely not designed to handle mid to higher end processors like the AMD FX-8350.
Summary: The AMD onboard graphics on this mobo have been extremely problematic from installation on. I eventually had to disable the onboard graphics and add a discrete graphics card to get my system to keep from having graphics crashes every five minutes. I would not recommend this board to anyone for any purpose.
Summary: I love the system, and it works well. Wont resume from hibernate so I dont use that feature but its low power consumption mixed with solid reliable family computer processing is just what I wanted. I wouldnt try gaming on it, it may work for that in a limited sense but that isnt what I bought it for.
