DOA cheapy board

xhe "Sean", Amazon
6 December 2013
  • Summary: Mine board was DOA also, i think this board has some serious design flaws or quality control issue. It didn't even post. Apparently It either doesn't like my 3930k or hated my RAM. While my asus board worked just fine. I should stay away from cheap products like this.....

Strike 3 for MSI

Darrel L "Darrel", Amazon

  • Summary: When I first obtained this board, it was everything I wanted and more! BIOS software, board layout, chipset, and everything I wanted. However, as of the time this review, I have spent an additional %50 of purchase price in RMA shipping. Not to mention, I still do not have a working system.

Small but powerfull

Continus, Amazon
1 January 2013
  • Summary: Currently using an intel 3820 quad core CPU, and it is fast. My only complaint is that when using the CPUFAN, I can't control it's speed apropriately when using a 3 pin connected fan, you need the four pin fan to do just that, otherwise it runs at 100% all the time.

D. Snow, Amazon

  • Summary: ` The board I received came with Bios version 1.0, which worked fine with an i7-3820 CPU. I updated the Bios to the latest version 1.60 from a USB thumb drive. Intel LGA 2011 processors don't come with a CPU cooler, so I got the official Intel cooler here on Amazon at a great price: Intel Thermal...

Poor quality

Robert, Amazon

  • Summary: I had read comments from people to stay away from MSI motherboards, but I decided to try one anyway for my new computer build. BIG mistake. The damn thing would freeze up and NEVER get to any kind of Windows setup.

décevant

T. Frere, Amazon
14 February 2013
  • Summary: Pas mal de problèmes de stabilité avec cette carte et un bios UEFI qui est juste une blague : avec certains "vieux" matériels USB, il met environ deux minutes à passer le stade du boot.

Carte mère non fonctionnelle!

DME28, Amazon
26 October 2012
  • Summary: Carte mère de bonne fabrication, un cran en dessous d'Asus (mais moins onéreuse également. J'installe, je connecte tout et je démarre le PC. Tout se passe bien, mais après le bios plus rien de rien.
