Fried...

Brent R., Newegg
10 April 2014
  • Pros: None... At all...
  • Cons: I installed this motherboard in a newly built system about 2 years ago. And within the burn-in process, it up and died but not before that awful electrical burning stench filled the room. Returned even tho they were out of stock, got a refund.

No Post

Jordan R., Newegg
26 February 2014
  • Summary: Could be great, we will see how this goes.
  • Pros: Nice specs, good price.
  • Cons: Just got this all setup and it won't post. Boots up for 10 seconds and shuts down. A quick search shows this to be an unfortunate and common problem with this board. Using supported memory and CPU, swapping components etc. nothing. This will be the first item I have ever had to RMA with Newegg. W...

Not As Described

Eric M., Newegg
13 September 2012
  • Summary: Good for a small desktop style enclosure, but i am not using those!
  • Pros: Motherboard has most of the features as described, arrived in good shape, all accessories provided as expected.
  • Cons: Motherboard is not Micro ATX, the board is more like a Mini ITX, it is nearly half the width of a Micro ATX board! Not as described!

Avoid this thing.

Pamela H., Newegg
20 February 2012
  • Summary: Worst newegg experience ever. They ripped me off time and money wise.
  • Pros: At least one of them worked!
  • Cons: Newegg sent us a defective board and then blamed me for breaking it. I had just installed the EXACT same mobo in another pc with no problems. I'm typing this on that PC! Lemme flip a tip to newegg: get some new people in your RMA dept. This is stupid.

No sound, anywhere.

Jessica H., Newegg
19 February 2012
  • Summary: Never in my life have I had a motherboard, that not only had no working integrated sound right out of the box, but no add-in cards will work either. I'm using the 10D BIOS, and went from 10A(stock) to 10B THEN 10C NOW 10D. Still nothing. It kills everything when you literally cannot have sound.
  • Pros: BIOS has some pretty decent but mostly basic features, even if you're an over-clocker. Paired with an I3-2120 and 2x4GB 1333, HIS Radeon HD 6570 and the ST1500DL003. Seems to run like a champ, but see my cons. If MSI sees that you have a problem with their products, they'll comment on your feedba...
  • Cons: No onboard sound. I knew about having to flash the BIOS, so I did. Still no sound...not even from add-on cards. Cut some of those extra languages out of the manual and make room for the other half of IMPORTANT information you guys dropped. I spent more time on Google than I did reading the book. ...

Stacy W., Newegg
1 January 2012
  • Summary: Price, features, combo. Bought as a gift for my son. Built it, ran it for two days, and on the third day when I turned it on it flashed out the rear of the CPU and now will not come on. Thought it was the power supply and bought a new power supply and installed it but, it did the same thing.
  • Pros: Price, Features, Combo Kit.
  • Cons: Cheap, Cheap, Cheap. I guess you get what you pay for. Lesson Learned.

Same problem as earlier reviewer

Anonymous, Newegg
26 December 2011
  • Summary: Before buying, I read through the reviews and sort of convinced myself it was a good board with only a few flukes that would somewhat easily be solved -- for example, when an earlier reviewer got 3 DOA boards in a row, I figured it must be user error because of how unlikely 3 DOAs is in a row.
  • Pros: One of the cheapest LGA1155 boards after the mail-in rebate. MSI does their rebates through a third party that also does rebates for other companies (I have another open rebate with this third party for a Gigabyte graphics card). Supposedly, then, this third party is trustworthy with mail-in reba...
  • Cons: Will not boot. To anything. I have tried Windows 7 installation media, Ubuntu 11.10 installation media, and Windows XP (already installed on a hard drive). Computer hangs when loading on all of them. I have tried a gazillion different combinations of hardware fixes (new PS, BIOS settings, new HDD...
