Summary: I bought this motherboard for my new gammer PC and it worked fine. I love its Graphical BIOS. I will use the crossfire option in the future. Great performance. What I didn't like: It didn't come in a MSI Box....maybe I bought an OEM, just plastic....I don't know. And it lacked of drivers CD and SATA3 cable... so I just download everything from MSI page and used by the moment a SATA2 cable for my SSD hard disk.
Summary: I ordered this motherboard as a refurb from MSI for only $55 dollars. The deal was too hard to turn down. Plus I haven't ever really had a problem with refurbs before that weren't fixed by a simple call to the Manufacturer. I am using an Intel Core i7-3770, so this board was perfect for me since my CPU isn't unlocked meaning I am unable to overclock it. A Z77 mobo is necessary to OC an i7-3770k and I didn't have that kind of money to spend. Shipping was fairly quick.
Summary: I was building a friend a computer and I needed something decent at a cheap price. This definitely did the job! And its expandable, with OC capabilities. So if you are getting/looking for something cheap, this is your deal!
Summary: You know, for the money, this is a great little motherboard. No, not going to create a huge honking server with this, but for workstation (I used it for a small bitmining rig) it works great. Love the new GUI cmos.
Summary: It works fine, good connectivity, not suitable for overclocking. Only two fan controlled my specs: 750w Antec Modular PSU i5 3570K Intel 240GB SSD 3TB HD AMD Sapphire R9 280X Dual X 16GB Kingston DDR3 Hyper X 1600 MHz Samsung Drive Zalman Z11 Plus case + Zalman Fan cooler
