Summary: Really unstable and random in the boot sequence, some times it wont start the pc until you press the reset button several times. At the end i had to change it because the sata controlers got broken so no PC for me for a while until i bought this one First and last MSI MOBO u ever bought.
Summary: I've had this for over 2 years, never has stopped working. I'm running 850W power supply, 2 hdd's, phenom II quad core 3.4 ghz, lightscribe drive, blu-ray burner, card reader, tv tuner, 8GB of 1333 mhz RAM, 2 Nvidia Geforce GTX260's, 8 fans. Fast, reliable mobo.
Summary: My first board had a defect in it from manufacturer and the company shipped one that worked right away(about three days) and has been working hard ever since and that was about seven months ago. The customer service was great too!!! Thanks MSI
Summary: Pros: this is one of 2 boards that is AMD, SLi, and DDR3 and the other is ASUS (yuck). Easy to OC and looks great. Cons: BIOS flashing is tricky. i locked the bios once and RMA'd it and the second time i did exactly what the msi rep told me to do and it locked again so i replaced the bios chip...
Summary: After putting my new AMD X6 core system together and turning it on I got a flashing cursor in the top left corner of my monitor. The system would not boot off of my WIN 7 disc. Pulled the machine apart and reassembled it thinking maybe there was a loose connection. No change.
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...
Summary: OK, I had a burning desire to get into some of that GPGPU cuda computing. The rig I assembled isn't bleeding edge today, maybe it would have been 6 months or so ago. Other than the case and power supply, most components really drop in price over the first few months.
Summary: This motherboard has all the features I wanted for an upgrade of my 5+ year old computer. I already had 2x GeForce 7800GTX video cards and lots of hard drives and didn't want to spend $2k+ on a new system. This motherboard gave the basis of a reasonable cost upgrade path.
Nice lay out and have not had any problems so far.

Summary: Update 6-jun-2012 Crapped out after 18 months. First video slots stopped working so I could not use multiple video cards. Then the Sata controler went bad and I could not get to any of my drives. Bad news. A MB should not crap out like this.
