  • Summary: I had this motherboard since Feb. 2012 and have not had a single problem with it. I will update if things turn south, but at this point I'd say it is a great buy.

Refurb?? Maybe an open box, but otherwise new

Scott Blake, Amazon
4 February 2013
  • 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. Board was obviously new; in fact, the only indication I could find that it had been opened at all was the owner's manual had a couple bent pages.

Love these MSI boards

metsons, Amazon
15 April 2012
  • 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 voltages and temps are fine. USB 3s and SATA 6GBs make this baby purr. MSI wants to download a lot of extra software, but that's optional. These are good boards.

best and most afordable board for the price

Michael, Amazon
25 February 2012
  • 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. the only down side is when you run crossfire youll be running X16 and X4 its fine if you have low power consuming card. My opinion is get a Dual gpu card and use the X4 for your Physx card.

So far so good

Jaa, Amazon
4 February 2012
  • 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. I'm not concerned by this enough to RMA it, I don't actually need two, but I do think that warrants knocking a star off. edit: here we are nearly a year later and still going strong.

just excellent so far.

Francis A. Castellanos, Amazon
16 January 2012
  • 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. and being unable to return the board because of high shipping costs. anyway I took the risk and borrowed an athlon X2 from a friend to flash the bios. The process was very easy.

All I can say is wow!

B. Swaback, Amazon
23 November 2011
  • 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. First off, I did quite a bit of research before I pulled the string on anything. I originally was going to get the Phenom 555 and saw last minute that there was a 560 out there.
