Summary: everyone online put a big scare on this board but im happy to say they are wrong i love this board no problems over clocking was very easy i paired it up with an FX6300 best gaming pc for the money...
Summary: I bought this board as part of a bundle and the first one developed some sort of fault about five minutes after turning it on. However the retailer's great customer service got me a new one and an RMA for the original. Plenty of room for expansions, the plugs are good and easy to access.
Great motherboard for an everyday computing experience.

Summary: Fair price, fast shipping. Easy to install and booted first time, no problems. Only con is that the motherboard lack of mounting toward the rear of the board. Have to be careful installing the main power cord, but once seated the board seems stable enough. Paired with FX6300 and 8GB of G.
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.
