User Review

Ralph S., Newegg
2 October 2013
  • Summary: This motherboard came with a bundle build. It has worked ok for over a year. I replaced the hard drive and still having many problems. Mainboard has failed and computer will not boot most of the time. When it does boot, all I get are "error" messages.
  • Pros: cheap, east to install.
  • Cons: worked very well at first, but did not last long enough.

Stay away- BIOS issues

Jacob M., Newegg
28 August 2013
  • Summary: This took me a few weeks to finally figure out. Maybe MSI can release a diagnostic tool to identify which chipset-processor combo you have and what BIOS/ME combo that requuires, and also a BIOS/ME downgrader tool that will fix the problem.
  • Pros: Generic LGA1150 board, was stable for about a year
  • Cons: DO NOT MESS WITH THE BIOS UPDATES. I update the BIOS, not realizing that 1.) MSI release a BIOS that will ruin your board if you have a sandy bridge processor. The symptoms are not easy to track down. Random blue screens from all different manners of causes and corrupted files are just the start....

Does what it should

Arel A., Newegg
27 April 2012
  • Summary: Its a good board for the price. My computer as it is, is running pretty solid. But for an enthusiast who finds myself upgrading alot, this board is a little lacking. It does what it should though, and I find it does is rather well.
  • Pros: Stable, worked right out of the box, and has continued to work without any major problems. All the ports work as they should.
  • Cons: Because this is a micro ATX, its difficult to upgrade. I wanted a new CPU heatsink/fan combo, but was unable to get it to fit without taking out a DIMM. I chose to return the cooler because there are only two slots on the mobo for RAM. The SATA ports are only 2.0, so my SSD is limited. Plenty of ...

DOA

Anonymous, Newegg
23 April 2012
  • Pros: ...?
  • Cons: DOA on arrival, never booted. I can't tell if the CPU or mobo but I'm almost positive the mobo is bad.

Ok board

Richard S., Newegg
2 April 2012
  • Summary: So far I guess I'm pretty happy with this board so far. I haven't had any major problems. It booted up quickly and installed the drivers fast. The only two things I don't like about the board is that it only has two DIMM slots and three fan headers.
  • Pros: Cheap, stable, and does what I need it to do.
  • Cons: Only has two DIMM slots Only 3 fan headers

Meets my expectation of a board of this price.

Brian G., Newegg
15 February 2012
  • Summary: All in all... it was cheap and it works so far. I actually purchased this an a 2600 to pop in to an existing system. I unplugged the hard drive from a Athlon X2 4200+ (the original X2) and plugged it straight in to this MB.
  • Pros: Cheap, stable, and does what I need it to do.
  • Cons: Seems poorly optimized out of the box. After the software was up and running I popped back to the BOIS to check things out (not sure how that wasn't the very first thing I did). Normal features such a Hyper-Threading, Turbo Boost, Speed Step were all turned off (why?).
