good mobo, but read cpu's supported before purchasing

Summary: Can't say that this is not a really good mobo for the price, it has a lot of features, the x-fi sound card is really good, the only problem I had with it is that for some reason it didn't support my Intel E7400 Core2Duo processor, looking at MSI site it indicated that the processor was supported with a bios upgrade. I'm not very comfortable at doing bios updates on any device, because if anything goes wrong you end up with a very big and costly paper holder.
Summary: Pros: If you want to just overclock a little this board will allow it with some very simple bios settings. However, if you want to go completely OC crazy it will allow that, too. Adding 8Gb RAM Corsair Dominator 2X2GB Kit PC2-8500 1066MHz DDR2 (TWIN2X4096-8500C5DF) and making some minor bios setting changes it is running perfectly even with a 3% OC. The dual gigabit LAN is very convenient. Two ESATA ports with power are an expansionists dream.
