Summary: All-in-All this is a good board, and for the money, is plenty fast, and reliable.
Pros: Good solid board. For the price, it would be hard to beat the features that you get with this one. The GUI based BIOS is nice too.
Cons: MSI update software is slow with certain 3rd party downloads.. This is a REALLY nice feature, but the download speeds for some of the drivers are unrealistically long. It would be quicker to just go to the manufacture website for download.
Summary: Just one thing, a minor thing--updating the BIOS through its online update tool doesn't seem to work. It won't connect to whatever server it's trying to connect to. I don't even consider this a "con" as I'm not looking to update the BIOS right now, though, so I won't dock it an egg.
Pros: Does as advertised and that's good enough for me.
Cons: I made the mistake of buying this when it was on sale for a future build. By the time I bought the rest of the parts to do the build it was outside of warranty. Put everything together to find out that it was DOA. Never had a problem like that before. If nothing else I learned i need to test my p...
Pros: Worked great for the last year never had a problem was stellar ram i7 8 GB memory top of the line video was stellar.
Cons: After a year tried to put 8 more GB of ram in and after cycling ram out it seems the 4th slot on the MB was dead. Rotated the ram in tons of different combinations but the 4th slot always caused my computer to restart every 3 seconds.
Pros: This MB was good in the beginning when I first bought it.
Cons: Wow where do i begin well it would freeze up my online games, it dies and now wont turn on so I'm stuck with a useless computer so I'm sorry if you feel other wise but truly this product is not worth your money because when I invest into a product i expect it to function for a while before it nee...
Cons: Sadly, starts acting up after a little while. Computer sometimes will hang during POST, other times a USB device (keyboard or mouse included) will cause an unfamiliar beep and Windows 7 will not load after POST (board normally has a higher pitched beep for each USB device). All in all, it lasted ...
