Summary: no issues with the product so far really. only real drawback is if you get a big graphics card or pci-e device you cannot easily access all of my sata connections. got all my parts put together and everything seems to work like a charm.
Summary: Quite pleased with board. Only negatives are the SATA ports face horizontal, so I had to cut into a side facing HDD rack to get access to them; there is no USB 3.0 connector on the mobo,just the 2 ports on the rear panel.
Summary: This board delivers excellent bang for the buck. MSI continues to make great products, both software and firmware support is great and up to date. USB 3.0 is blazing fast. Board is VERY power hungry however, especially with a RAID 1 and SLI setup - make sure you get at least a 750w PS and LOTS of cooling surrounding this board.
