Summary: This is the second one-had to RMA the first after one year of use. First one had many problems from the start-had to update bios blue screens, etc. This one has been no problem, working as it should and is a good motherboard. Has true 2.0 PCIE (@ x16 and x16).
Summary: I bought this after comparing with the ASUS Sabertooth. In my opinion and based on some benchmark results i found on the internet you get more bang for the buck from the MSI board when compared to the ASUS Sabertooth. So far so good, it was easy to set up. I haven't done any overclocking yet, but i did look at the built in software/tools to handle this and it seems like it will be an easy task. The only real complaint I have is about the sound input location.
Summary: I've used MSI motherboards before though I'd recently had an ASUS board. When I was looking for something to go with a i5 2500K cpu this seemed like the best value for the money. Overclocking is really easy with this board though I don't think the OC Genie is that wonderful. It works but tends to overvolt the processor. Looks good, components are high quality. Good placement of various connectors. The front USB connector is a little tricky.
Summary: I just love UEFI! It looks gorgeous with mouse support (though mouse support is still in its infancy) Managed to put all my high end components into the mobo without a problem. Build quality was great. Got a decent OC of 4.4Ghz @ 2.95v on a i7-2600k (not brilliant) Cons: The OC and memory OC options are a bit confusing but after some googling got it down pretty well.
Summary: Intel i5 2500 iþlemciyle kullandýðým kart overclock konusunda mükemmel. Ýþlemcimin çarpan kilidi olmasýna raðmen ufak bios ayarý ve OC Genie tuþuyla 4.2GHza stok fanla çýkabildi. OC Genie hiç overclocktan anlamayan ama performans arayanlar için mükemmel bir artý. Raid desteklemesi. 4 sata 6gb giriþine ve 2+2 usb3 giriþine sahip olmasý, grafik tabanlý bios kullanmasý bu anakartýn ne kadar güncel ve geliþmelere ne kadar ayak uydurduðunu açýkça gösteriyor.
