Great board for the money

Joshua V., Newegg

  • Summary: Overall for a home pc or a gamer that is not trying to overclock this is a great board. I've had it over a year and have had 0 issues with it. The bios is easy to use with being able to use your mouse and keyboard.
  • Pros: Great value, reliable, easy to use bios, ample amount of connectors.
  • Cons: 4 pin cpu connector, no ability to change cpu voltage in bios

  • Summary: Great mobo for the price!
  • Pros: Have been using this mobo for some time now and it is working really well. I use it for some moderate gaming, nothing super serious but it handles anything I throw at it.
  • Cons: None to speak of.

Great Budget Board

  • Summary: Why still 5 eggs? The customer support that MSI provided was awesome. I submitted a query to tech support after registering the board on their site expected a response in the next few days, got a response in hours (even though I didn't check my e-mail for a few days).
  • Pros: Picked this up cyber Monday for around fifty. Used it to build a computer for the wife's schooling. Wanted something that booted fast and launched apps fast for those last minute "I have a term paper due in 4 hours" situations.
  • Cons: Bios Update failed....completely. followed it by the book and it just couldn't do it. I even let it sit after it rebooted it self for an hour and a half to make sure.

This one works!

YANIK B., Newegg
15 March 2015
  • Summary: If you don't know what to choose between Bolton D3 & D4: The major differences are the D4 has more SATA ports and you could configure a RAID 5. The D3 is fine for most users who's needs are for browsing and multimedia applications.
  • Pros: Got a Gigabyte Mobo to replace a defective Acer OEM mobo. It worked for less than a week and died. We found all the required features on this board: USB 3.0 expansion port, HDMI, VGA & DVI, 4x USB 3.0 rear I/O, etc. And it still works after a month. Very satisfied overall!

Does not work with 860k

ASA G., Newegg
22 February 2015
  • Summary: One eggs for at least working. As far as I'm concerned, the 860k is the only fm2/+ cpu that will not work in this motherboard.
  • Pros: At least it is not broken.
  • Cons: Do not buy if planning to pair with a 860k. You will only get fan spin. The BIOS is not compatible. Even on the MSI website it says it is compatible but do not be fooled.

Nice small board

Michael S., Newegg
16 February 2015
  • Pros: I like this board. I had no issues with install.I used it in a home server running WHS 2011. I like the small micro ATX form factor. I have an SSD boot drive and a 2TB storage drive with 4 gigs of ram. I like the USB 3.0 and with build in video i needed no card for initial setup. I don't run the ...

  • Pros: My MOBO was not DoA in fact this was my first build and I almost fried the whole thing... Yeah I mess up big on the USB.
