User Review

DAVID C., Newegg
8 May 2015
  • Pros: I'm too irate to compliment
  • Cons: The board has been serving me well since 2011, until dome rocket scientist at MSI approved the introduction of BIOS 4.3 Thank You for turning my entire system into this huge paper till a new board arrives, and no, it isn't a MSI. Newegg doesn't have any compatibles in stock. Done all the troubles...

Worked decently until BIOS update Bricked It

Darren V., Newegg
9 March 2015
  • Summary: Bought an AS Rock Z77 Extreme 4 as a replacement. IMO if a BIOS update kills a motherboard, the company should fix it regardless of the warranty status.
  • Pros: At the time of purchase, it was one of the first motherboards that supported Sandybridge Processors. Overclocking was great(for both RAM and CPU). USB 3.0 rear ports worked well. The front ones not as well.
  • Cons: Updated the BIOS a few days ago(it said successfully) and it bricked the motherboard. Now it comes on for a few seconds, goes off, and repeats the cycle. Called MSI support and they said I'm out of luck since the warranty was expired.

Big disappointment

Clive H., Newegg
5 December 2013
  • Summary: This was my first bad experience with MSI mobos (I've built several rigs over the years - all very reliable) The change to a windows based BIOS may not be such a good idea.
  • Pros: Nice layout, good mix of PCI-e and PCI slots, Great overclock (when it worked.)
  • Cons: BIOS issues from the get-go. Had to reset to factory setting after running OC Genie otherwise the mobo went into a BIOS startup loop. BIOS bricked after several OC genie rounds so it's now in the trash can.

Worst MB I ever owned!

John M., Newegg
21 April 2013
  • Summary: First board I received was DOA. No problem Newegg replaced it. Thanks. Second board has been a stability nightmare since I installed it. I am trying to use all Sata ports, but unfortunately the board can't seem to handle it. I get BSOD's all the time.
  • Pros: Nice Feature List
  • Cons: Board is not stable at all. Constantly crashes.

Worst board I've ever owned.

Simon L., Newegg
4 February 2013
  • Pros: Lots of features on paper. One of the earlier boards to include USB 3.0
  • Cons: In the year and a half I've owned this board, it has died on me twice. The third time around, the replacment board arrived DOA. I'm never purchasing another MSI board ever again.

I'm Mad Bro -Hargak

Ben O., Newegg
29 March 2012
  • Summary: Hypothesis? Of 9000 worth of inventory purchased from newegg this was my first return, definately a good run. my issue is with how it was handled. When i purchased the item, it seems they probably were out of stock which I'm sure happens due to human error.
  • Pros: Solid japanese qaulity caps, MSI quality in general looks excellent, I have the same board in my main rig and it runs great with a 2600k running at 4.2GHZ with the push of a button.
  • Cons: It seems I'm not the only one that got a rma'd board sent to me as a new purchase. the stickers that normally are on the board were stuck on the outside of the mobo box when it arrived. I called newegg, they stated, try it, if it doesn't work return it. so this build going two states away to my s...
