Warning! NO AHCI support!

Anonymous, Newegg
21 September 2012
  • Summary: I'm really surprised and out $50. Why would a motherboard have SATA II support, but no AHCI support? I did not expect that! MSI's site says "4 SATAII ports with transfer rate up to 3Gb/s." It never mentions IDE support only.
  • Pros: none at this point I'm going to try to return it.
  • Cons: No support for AHCI sata drive. IDE ONLY!!! It is quite useless. I looked in all the documentation and could find no reference to this limitation.

Great Board

Rejean G., Newegg
10 September 2012
  • Summary: Loaded flawlessly with no issues - Great mobo
  • Pros: Works great - will work with core 2 duo and quad cores including the QX9650, Q9650/9550 dual cores etc DDR3 is a great feature to have with a core 2 duo or core 2 quad, these CPUs are still very fast and adding DDR3 extends their life even more.
  • Cons: No SATAIII but thats fine, and you can ad a SATAIII PCI Express card to get access to FAST SATAIII SSDs

No Problems at all

Antonio B., Newegg
10 September 2012
  • Summary: I see so many mixed comments that could deter someone from buying this board. The ones complaining are the ones who always need to overclock. If you just need a motherboard for ordinary use this one is perfect
  • Pros: Worked flawlessy, right out of the box. Perfect price. I purchased this motherboard to replace my daughters ddr2 motherboard.
  • Cons: none

JUNK

Chun W., Newegg
5 September 2012
  • Summary: Installed everything on the new board, the fans spin, but would not boot. Tried using one Dimm and resetting the CMOS jumper to 2-3, then to 1-2. Nothing happens. Tried all combination of installing the ram and resetting the CMOS jumper. New board is worst than the old board.
  • Pros: NONE - I can reuse the NewEgg Shipping box to store some old books
  • Cons: Purchased this for a simple build for a working C2D E6550 pull. Purchased new ram, ( Kingston Value 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1066 Desktop Memory Model KVR1066D3S8N7K2/4) . Used built-in video card. Installed both ram modules. The fans would spin, but the system would not boot. Looked...

Can't update

Troy M., Newegg
29 August 2012
  • Summary: I'm gonna give it another try. If it still won't work then I will return it and get another board instead. By the way BIOS version is 30b. I went to their website and latest bios update is 28a. Might try to downgrade the bios.
  • Pros: Newegg rocks!!! Very fast shipping! Inexpensive.
  • Cons: Everything seems to work fine at first. Installed windows 7 64 bit and then installed drivers. After that, it won't start at all. I'm stuck in the start up repair screen. So I reinstalled windows again and decided not to install the chipset drivers. Everything worked out fine until I updated wind...
