Summary: I bought this board to replace a Asus board which doesn't like Linux OS. I didn't install it right away and when I did install it, I could never get it to work. I had to reinstall the Asus board which I hate and now I am out the $98 I paid for the MSI board.
Summary: I usually like MSI motherboards, however on a recent computer build this motherboard would not boot up passed the checking NVRAM on 2 boards. I worked with their forums and with their customer service department and while they did respond, it was not necessarily as fast as I would have hoped. Ive returned my second motherboard of this model to amazon and will be searching for a new brand.
Summary: When I mentioned that MSI's APS (Active Phase Switching) does not function properly in their forum, I was threated by administrators to keep it quiet. They removed all the posts related to in which situations APS does not function which is when you try to undervolt the processor (or basically change anything in that section of the BIOS I believe) for further power savings!
