Pros: It worked great had many easy boot configurations worked well for four years but finally had an issue it was not booting so started trouble shooting found out the ram slots have gone bad. one ram slot still works but that drops me down from 16 gigs to 4 gigs which is not Ideal for a gaming PC.
Summary: - I had this thing for a long time. It treated my brother and I well. I believe the reason it died was because my brother overheated it when his thermal paste needed to be replaced. Kind of sad to see it go, but I have it stashed in its original box in my house for the memory.
Pros: - Good setup and space management. - Ran very cool. - Never had any issues with it. - Extremely stable.
Summary: This was the first MSI MB I have ever purchased. While it did last 5 years, and that's fine.. my old computer ran for 8 years prior, and the motherboard NEVER blew up. I replaced it because it was out of date. I've never had something like this happen before.
Pros: This board worked great when it ran smoothly, which was for about the first year or two that I owned it. Nothing special, but it got the job done.

Summary: Pretty much outdated unless you're doing a simple build with older components to minimize price.
Pros: Got it for a great price, has held up strong for years for me.
Cons: Have some issues with the RAM slots. - They tend to malfunction if I lose power and the computer shuts down improperly. Have to pull the sticks and re-insert them and then works fine. -RAM really close to CPU as with most mobos so with an aftermarket cooler master cpu heatsink, I'm unable to fit ...
Pros: Excellent motherboard. Has lasted me quite a few years without any hiccups. Bios is easy to understand and navigate. Haven't had any problems except needing to upgrade. Well worth the price. Thanks!
