Summary: I have assembled over 200 PCs since 1997 with the vast majority of them based on MSI motherboards and AMD CPUs. For my money you cant do any better when considering bang for the buck and reliability!
Summary: Had a problem with no power but assembled everything out of the case...and worked fine. Must be grounding out on case. Installed slightly taller risers and thing worked excellent. Thanks for this product. Shipping was real fast...arrived in two days.
Summary: First off I would like to say the board did work for me and maybe I got one that just slipped through quality control. My biggest complaint is the sata controller on this board is horrible. It would only allow an install and or boot of windows if the main hard drive was plugged in the sata port 5 position and dvd drive in ports 1,2, or 3, this took a reasonable amount of time to figure out (and if you are wondering, yes I had the bios set correct, it was the board).
This little motherboard was easy to install and runs great!

Summary: I wanted an economical replacement motherboard for a PC at work I was rebuilding. I used an AMD A4-3400 CPU with built in graphics capability. I didn't have big demands for a lot of bells and whistles, or lots of memory expansion. I put 4GB on there and Windows 7 64-bit installed quickly and worked like a charm. The only thing I wish the mobo had is USB 3.0, but I know there were other choices for slightly more $$ that could have given me this feature.
