Summary: DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT until you find out how much time is left on the warranty. MSI warranty is based on the date of manufacture not by when you bought the mainboard. So if it has been on the shelf for 1 year, you will only get 2 years warranty.
Summary: A clone of this M/B has been in use in my office for the past 6 months, so when I saw this board for a very reasonable ($59, I think) price, being sold as a refurb direct from MSI, I jumped at the chance. BIOS was a bit back-dated, but that was easily fixed.
Summary: If you're like me and purchased the $40 Windows 8 upgrade, do NOT update your BIOS. Your system ID will be changed and Windows will lose it's activation, locking you out of Windows until you purchase a new license key.
Summary: Just plugged the baby in and ran it. It over-clocked using the genie II setting without any configuration needed and popped a quad-core 3.6GHz up to 4.2.

Summary: I got this MSI board a few months ago as a Christmas gift. When I got everything installed, I got a blue screen immediately when loading Windows 7. After doing some research, I discovered the board was bad. Sent it back to MSI. Got a replacement board, and it was DOA as well.
