Summary: Careful when buying discount bundle deals. Especially with motherboards.
Pros: Useable and it's lasted 5 years for what was meant to be an overclock build for Skyrim.
Cons: Red light was on from the start, setting to power on through keyboard never took, techsupport wasn't much help with either case, seemed they resigned to defeat too early as if they knew there was nothing they could do, the boot interface is lacking, and stopped using four sticks of RAM because th...
Summary: It is the centerpiece of my computer, which I use every day for music production as well as email and things like writing this review. The only bad thing about is that the fans are loud, otherwise it is excellent.
Pros: My Whole computer had a massive fall from shoulder heigth, The motherboard was still kicking strong after that. So this board is great, well made, many SATA ports for all my drives I still have not attempted to use the O.C.
Cons: My first board died about after three months, I RMA'd it and revieced a new one promptly, that was in 2010, and now it is 2013 and the new one they sent me has been running strong so no egg drops
Summary: Honestly on basic settings I could not have asked for a better mb for my first build and will always recommend msi to anyone who asks.
Pros: It has never truly given me much hardship works great on all basic settings.
Cons: All the utilities on it dislike me because they don't want to work for me. I tried to overclock it the other day using the genie program given to me and it reboot my computer and just kept rebooting for about an hour. Now this happened to me once before and it was when i noticed my CPU Nb voltage...
Summary: should have waited 35 more days then would have gotten the 6 core AMD but that is how it is with computers :-)
Pros: I got this to build my first computer had a large computer case I was going to put it in then I got some plex glass and made my own case the MSI MB is prefer for what I needed and what money I saved is great
Summary: Been building my own gaming computers since I first worked in a computer shop when I was 12, MSI has been the highest performance for it's price by far and extremely reliable still upholding there standards when they built boards and electronics for the Military.
Pros: Amazing, I'm no stranger tobuying MSI motherboards... Every one of them not all of the utillities all work on them, but most of there boards are better off sticking to BIOS anyway. This was the first board I bought of MSI used, but do to there personal reputation for being very reliable and very ...
Cons: The only cons is that I didn't know about it sooner, and that though the manual control knob on the board works JUST FINE, it is much more practical and effective to do your self straight from the BIOS.
