Summary: this motherboard is awesome. I use this with a am3 six core processor (1090t) and it boots and works perfectly. However, the only problem i can say is that if you ever get a black screen and see that their is only a cursor blinking, it is probably because you updated the bios. if not and you still get the same thing then you have to go to bios and rearrange you boot order or if that doesnt help just restart your pc and problem will be easily solved.
Summary: UGH! Punch! Yeah you taste that! That's my 32GB of motherboard Ram that shoved in your FACE! Yes this motherboard supports 32GB of DDR3 Ram! The bandwidth is ridiculously high! This i would recommend to all people who need a computer for Performance! PERFORMANCE! Do you know how rare that is?It's one thing to have a motherboard that supports 16GB.But how many can support 32GB! Get a SSD drive and you are set!
Summary: I like MSI products now with their Military Class components. That is what they call it anyway. Quality components. So by the time you want new technology this thing will likely be going strong. But one thing I don't like is how it didn't load XP. I did some research and found out that if you slipstream I guess it is called SP3 with your XP you can load it. I did that perfectly. It updated it and I put it back on disk.
Summary: I have had the system build for a month now and not a bad thing to say about this board at all. I was a little skeptical at the price but I did not need on board video and the 6GB/S sata connections were a plus since the HDD I was going with could utilize them. Plenty of space and great layout. I have a huge CPU cooler (see photo section) and it did not interfere with any of the RAM Slots.
