Good Board for Upgrade

Bennabus, Amazon
13 February 2012
  • Summary: I got this board because I still had 4 gigs of good Corsair DDR2 but I wanted to move up from some of the older stuff I had. The price was good when I got it and it could handle all the old peripherals I had from my old PC.

Beats the knickers off my old mobo

Justin B., Newegg
28 January 2011
  • Summary: if you're going to overclock, get yourself some mosfet coolers.
  • Pros: good overclocking options, easy to install. Assembled and booted right up. no muss, no fuss.
  • Cons: It's a bit narrow, I'd like my memory a bit further from the cpu, but hey, I'd also like a robot pegasus.

MSI 790x-G45 a great deal

Hans P., Newegg
13 December 2010
  • Summary: Not many bells and whistles, but all the functionality is there to meet today's needs for computing and gaming. Not sure why the PSU was an issue. Used it in another PC so nothing was wasted.
  • Pros: Easy installtion. Easy to update BIOS from within Windows 7.
  • Cons: Issue with POST and video with KINGWIN 1000 PSU. Has same issue with MSI 870A-G54

Decent board but bios issues

Seth T., Newegg
6 December 2010
  • Summary: Won't be keeping the board, BIOS issues are minor but highly annoying.
  • Pros: 90% of the time, everything runs smooth. Good price off a shell shocker deal.
  • Cons: First off, these issues were before and after I flashed to the newest Bios. Annoying Bios issues: -Randomly resets the boot order and tries to boot off my secondary hard drive. Easy to change, but far from wife-friendly. -Sometimes moving around the menus, keyboard presses get "stuck" and will fi...

My mistake

Anonymous, Newegg
26 October 2010
  • Summary: Faith restored.
  • Pros: I contacted MSI as soon as I discovered the front panel header with no pins, they replied the next day. Explaining that there was another header "with pins" in another location. The one with the same identifier just very very small print. I commend MSI technical/customer support for their quick a...
  • Cons: Can't say as time constraints haven't allowed the build.

What Quality Control

Anonymous, Newegg
25 October 2010
  • Summary: Of the 60 plus builds I done int the past, this has got to be the most flagrant gross oversight I have ever encountered. One egg is more than this particular board deserves.
  • Pros: none
  • Cons: Bought this board for an econo gaming rig I planned to give to a buddy. The build was going well until I attempted to plug in the front panel connectors. There were no pins in the board! All clearly labeled but nothing to connect to. I understand stuff happens, and have used MSI products for low ...
