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: 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. I put this in with a power supply that only had a 4-plug CPU instead of the 8 this board asks for and no complaints at all from the board, all...
Summary: This board is very relible and has very good temp's on the north bridge cooling its has a built in over clocker on the bios and boosts you almost 1 whole ghz by a single click. it reads my AMD 1055t perfectly and my Patriot sector 5 2000mhz.
Summary: So far, everything appears to be working well. I did have to flash the bios to get it to work with my FX 4100, but after that it seems to work fine... mostly. It looks like one of the PCI slots on my board has failed.
Summary: I bought this board for an upgrade. At first it seemed OK because of the price and features but I didn't know about the need to flash the bios in order to work with the new FX processors. at first I was a little worried, mostly because I live outside the U.S.
Summary: Length:: 0:21 Mins I am a noob especially when it comes to building a computer from scratch. I have been "playing" around with them like swapping hard drives, adding video cards and accessing the BIOS (even though it wouldn't let me do anything). So here is what I did and what my experience was.
