DOA. Could not replace because it is out of stock

SAMUEL M., Newegg
24 April 2012
  • Summary: Wish I could have tried a replacement board.
  • Pros: Good specs for price.
  • Cons: Board would not complete POST. Board would turn all fans on when power supply was turned on even without power pins in place. Board even turned on all fans but not even give error beeps when no ram was installed. Yes there is a onboard speaker. When calling MSI tech support I was able to give the...

Great board for $

Michael S., Newegg
20 March 2012
  • Summary: For a mid-level board this works great, has all the features you need and works great. Very good product from MSI. On-board GPU is perfectly decent for what it is and really does the job just fine and dandy.
  • Pros: Lots of features. SATA3, USB3, fast, on-board GPU perfectly adequate.
  • Cons: None really

dont listen to the bad reviews

Fayez H., Newegg
16 November 2011
  • Summary: I don't Know why Intel can't integrate all the SATA3 ports into one chipset when this cheaper motherboard can do it! Unit is hooked up to a Scanner, with 2 1TB SATA3 HDD Raid1, WIN 7 X64, not used for anything crazy...... yet
  • Pros: Runs perfect, will definitely purchase again, make sure to match this thing with a SATA3 HDD!
  • Cons: NONE

Goof board on paper

Peter B., Newegg
6 October 2011
  • Summary: This was a huge disappointment to discover I would not be able to use this board in my XBMC box. Avoid this board. Comes with the smallest manual I have ever received with a motherboard. The price is way to high for being limited to one single OS. Shame on you MSI!
  • Pros: Good set of features
  • Cons: No matter what you do, this board will not boot any flavor of Linux. It stalls on the dreaded kernel_thread_helper+0x6 0x10 Usual resolution is to disable ACPI, but it does not help by disabling it in BIOS nor setting acpi=off in grub. If you intent on running Linux, this is NOT the board for you.

No problems

Brad L., Newegg
9 September 2011
  • Summary: This is part of a complete new build with a Lian Li micro atx case v352, MSI 6770 twin frozer, cheapest quad AMD, SSD boot drive and 2 regular hard drives, and 8 gigs of ram. It is replacing the family computer that the kid kicked to death. This one is small enough to keep on the desk.
  • Pros: No problems with install. So far so good regarding stability. Matches very well with a MSI 6770. The vid card goes over 4 of the 6 sata slots available but I was still able to use 3 of the 4. Provides 90 degree sata cables but they were tall and used rosewill ones instead. Onboard sound good enou...
  • Cons: I would have liked a small MSI logo sticker to put on the case.

Don't buy

Douglas M., Newegg

  • Pros: none
  • Cons: I bought 4 of these boards to build 4 systems at work. first two boards would not boot if there was ram in DIMM1. The third board booted and saw all 8gb ram but the video was tiled badly and then stopped. I didn't even open the box on the fourth one. I called MSI, updated the BIOS, called back tr...

Impeccable

Step73, Amazon
22 October 2011
  • Summary: Carte complète, sans regrets concernant son achat. Suffisamment performante, avec des options BIOS avancées concernant l'overclocking pour mon Phenom II 1090T, reconnu sans souci. Attention, un seul connecteur PCI. Je n'y avais pas fait attention...
