Summary: I bought this motherboard because it has some good features, but mostly because it has two PS2 ports, and it's getting difficult to find reasonably modern motherboards that have two PS2 ports. I need it because I have KVM units that do not support USB connections, and adapters don't work.
old MSI board that finally died (probably from a bad sata dvd drive)

Summary: Bought this as a replacement for my 6yr. old MSI board that finally died (probably from a bad sata dvd drive). Everything is clearly marked, my liquid cooled fan setup did not cause any issues with my ram, not even close.
Summary: This board would be pretty good if it worked. It arrived and when i installed it the computer would not communicate with any graphic card (I tried a couple). I had to call MSI and they told me it was a bad board. Very disappointed and will not be purchasing another MSI board in the future.
Summary: I wanted an AM3 socket, SATA III, and USB 3 on an ATX board. This had everything I wanted and at a great price. Assembled computer a couple weeks ago, installed WIN7, added drivers for motherboard and it works great! Now plan to overclock system and that was a nice added feature.
Summary: I live in a house with 6 people all using wireless internet, due to this, the wireless is extremely slow. Previously I used an ethernet cord and my internet was responsive as can be. Unfortunately when this motherboard arrived, the ethernet port is broken.
