  • Summary: I have built 4 different computers and upgraded them all using MSI motherboards and AMD cpu's on the initial builds and on upgrades and the only problem that I ever had like this was a 4-5 year old board that failed. I have sold the motherboards that I upgraded and never had a complaint.
  • Pros: I purchased this board on 2/8/12. The board booted on the first try with no problems. Win 7 installed with no problems and the computer was much faster than before when paired with an AMD Phenom II X4 975 Black Edition 3.6 Ghz. cpu and 4 GB of Kingston Hyper X DDR3 1333 memory. This computer was ...
  • Cons: After about 6 months the honeymoon was over. The computer started having random crashes but they were just an annoyance at first. The crashes became more frequent and then in Dec. after a MS update the computer would not boot into windows without crashing. Since there was a laptop available for u...

Good enough

  • Summary: MSI is one of the best out there. It would be the same if you spent 70 on a ASUS board. Their both Amazing companies, But In order to have a Beast Comp you have to spend at least 1300
  • Pros: Ive had the board for awhile and now and have only had 1 issure with it. Had computer in Hybernating mode for long period of time, and it wouldnt boot after that, simple had to clear the CMOS and it began to work once again. OC genie is a rediculously stupid program, Oc'd system by myself from 3....
  • Cons: North Bridge gets hella hot. OC Genie is Awful, Board is Flimsy,

Completely useless!

  • Summary: I am very dissatisfied with MSI motherboards. This was a computer that I have been working on for quite some time, and it was going to be my first truly earned gaming rig... I guess that's what I get for going for the cheap parts like this...
  • Pros: None, as it never really worked.
  • Cons: Well... none either, besides the fact that it has no video output. At first when I got it, I tried plugging in a DVI cable on my GPU, no video then, however I remained hopeful that I just needed to install the drivers for my GPU, and sadly, due to unforeseen financial problems, I was unable to te...

  • Summary: why have a program from the manufactor that will mess up your system. when you got to the website it even says dont update they bios this way. if you cant do it that way take the option out of the program.
  • Pros: i was one of the lucky ones my board worked great for almost a year.
  • Cons: dont ever use the live update software it flashed my bios and bricked my system, there is no getting into a boot device manger to even try to boot form usb to reflash the bios. so newmother board here i come, not a msi.

MSI let down

Darrell A., Newegg
13 August 2012
  • Summary: I don't blame newegg at all, because what they sent me was actually working. I do, however, blame MSI for having poor customer service times and representatives that believe arguing through email about how its IMPOSSIBLE that the board is defective and must be the customer's error.
  • Pros: The color scheme is nice, as I am a fan of black and blue. The specifications aren't bad for the price (I paid $80 before newegg dropped the price and discontinued it, which I'll get to in a moment why they did)
  • Cons: First and foremost, I believe that MSI's track record is going down further and further. I used to believe that MSI was a strong brand, with good customer service and reliable products. But, after purchasing this board, I would not go too far to say that Dell is better. It's that bad. When I orig...

Yet Another Defective Board

Bill B., Newegg
2 August 2012
  • Summary: MIS has reached a new low in quality control with what, in my long memory, has proven to be the least reliable motherboard made since the Abit KG-7. My partner and I are contemplating the removal of MSI from our motherboard vendor list. It's too bad.
  • Pros: None that deserve mentioning.
  • Cons: To date, out of the last lot of five boards we purchased, two have failed within several weeks of being placed into service—I just received a call this morning from a client whose PC went bell-up—and a third was defective out of the box with no sound and a dead SATA port. Although Newegg is no lo...

  • Summary: I am still happy with this board.
  • Pros: I have had this card for about 4 months now and I have had zero problems with it (knocking on wood).
  • Cons: I do have on the front of my case a 1394 plug. The motherboard does not support this. There is no place to plug it in. I wish there was.

SLI - ??????????

Marion B., Newegg
30 June 2012
  • Pros: OK board for running 1 video card..........flimsy......only 6 mounting holes for install.
  • Cons: If you're buying this board to run SLI as I did ( & I'm sure most others have), be aware that it does not come with the SLI connector. Don't know if this is an oversight on MSI or just cheap on their part. I don't know how they expect you to run SLI without it. 1st Board I've bought ( or seen) th...
