  • Summary: Probably wont use msi again. Athlon11 Mushkin ram (2x 2) w7 pro os
  • Pros: Went together easily without having to tweak. (Was) good mb after 18 months need to replace. The mb would no longer read the ram in 1st slot correctly. very dissappointed, booted W7 pro in 45 sec. from Day1
  • Cons: I really did not expect to replace this after only 18 mo. Reliabity of MSI questioned as mb no longer available. I have a build with an Asus board still running like a champ after 3 years.

  • Summary: I have always been an MSI fan boy but I had issues with my last 2 MSI boards (bought years apart) so I will buy an ASUS and see how that goes. I know that companies some times read this reviews so MSI if you are reading this and would like to help out please let me know and I would be willing to...
  • Pros: Great price when this board was available. For me MSI had always been the number one choice due to price and reliability of their products.
  • Cons: I have owned this board since 3/22/2010, since early last year this board will crash with no indication of why. I have tried different OS, win xp and win 7 but have the same issue. I ran a few stress test and it willpass them all but as soon as it is at idle it will crash. I am running a 4 disk r...

  • Summary: It is disappointing to see it is no longer available here. I was hoping to avoid calling Microsoft about reactivating Windows, but alas, I must.
  • Pros: Decent motherboard for the price. Allowed me to overclock my AMD Athlon II X2 245 to 3.45 GHz. Was stable.
  • Cons: MSi driver install interface always seems to lag. I wish they could implement a smoother (faster running UI) interface. I'm not sure why it takes so long. The motherboard failed after about two and a half years for no apparent reason. The price didn't seem to drop at all while it was still availa...

Great for the cost

  • Summary: Got more than what I paid for. Looking for a budget build? This isn't a bad mobo if you're not concerned about upgrading your video card past PCI-E (x16)
  • Pros: Extremely affordable, painless installation, working great so far, angled SATA ports
  • Cons: no PCI-E slot

Fair, but don't buy for RAID; poor documentation

Dale L. Curtis, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this MB as part of repurposing an older desktop PC as a file server. I needed RAID 5 and a PCI-E (not 16) slot for a TV tuner card. I also wanted to re-use an IDE DVD drive, and a PCI slot to re-use an older USB external port card. In general the MB fit the bill.

Still not sure what to think..

  • Summary: The board really is pretty nice. It has PCI-E x1 and PCI-E x16, even if it is 1.1 or whatever, that;'s not big hindrance really. It's like the HyperTransport thing, it won't matter in the user experience much.
  • Pros: The good part, the pros. This board was easily the best option for the money. The only board I found with PCI-E x1, and PCI-E x16, DDR3/AM3 support. This board has turned out to be a pretty nice little board. Its dimensions were ideal for me. The board installed Windows 7 Ultimate x64 without a h...
  • Cons: The motherboard itself is pretty good, my main discrepancy is with Newegg on this one. The picture of the motherboard is a red PCB, the motherboard I received was black-brown PCB with blue accents. This threw me for a loop and if I had the time, I would have RMAd it. I had a custom build for a cu...

  • Pros: Cheap, works, good for random htpc or file storage stuff. Onboard video is good enough for 720p video with absolutely no issue (suspect 1080p would work fine too).
  • Cons: A bit cramped on the board, cable management & etc can get iffy. D-sub only video output is :(

Nothing Wrong with this board

Daniel D., Newegg

  • Summary: Using a 300W power supply I had lying around so its obviously easy on the gas. No problems. Repaired an old HP system for a friend that the MB died in. I want to point out that it shows as a 6150SE but it is actually a GeForce 7025/nForce 630a.
  • Pros: Easy install. Windows 7 Prof. 32 installed without a glitch. Using an Athlon II 250 with 4G crucial 1333 memory. Fired right up and haven't looked back. Very stable. Windows 7 has no issues. Real Tech audio 24 bit. AM3 supported. Using the BIOS it came with. Updated drivers from MSI have no issues.
  • Cons: PCI-X 1.0 but it is x16.

  • Pros: -almost 100% reliable (see cons) -good power consumption -adequate amount of usb ports
  • Cons: -somewhat finicky about booting with some usb devices attached. hangs at splash screen, though it does post eventually. for this reason it was relieved of duty in my car pc and now lives happily as a home server
