Easy to install, worked the first time through setup
16 August 2012
Summary: I've owned this board for almost a year now after buying it board to replace an ASUS board that was DOA from Microcenter. I've built a few computers before but the BIOS was easy to setup and I would imagine a novice would have no trouble with it. I was up and running in no time. Highly recommended.
Summary: I have an MSI motherboard that recently stopped working for no reason. It is still under manufacturer warrenty and the repair shop told me to call MSI to get a replacement. I called them...waited on hold forever. Finally got someone on the phone, and gave him all the information (receipts, proof of purchase, yada yada). Then he gives me an RMA number and tells me they will email me instructions as to what to do. "What?" I say. "I want to handle this now on the phone.
Summary: This board was the basis for a 'multimedia' machine for one of my clients. It's new 'click' BIOS and it's 'Easy OC' feature worked as advertised. MSI builds excellent hardware but has been known to be a little inconsistant with it's utilities. I'm glad to say the utilities for this board seemed more polished and professional.
Summary: This motherboard was chosen from over a P8z68 Asus Pro-v .. and I must say it was an excellent decision .. Comes very well built .. Features PCI-Ex 3.0 .. USB 3.0 .. DVI, HDMI and VGA along with an option to Muiltimonitor .. Some of the most outstanding and grandiiosa Click BIOS II is very easy and safe OC .. apart is the ability to work in the BIOS from Windows .. and OC Genie button when you touch beautiful things happen ... I've ridden a 2500K just great ..
Summary: I've only been running this board for a few days now but I am confident that I can give it a positive review. This is the first motherboard I've installed and thus far the experience with it has been excellent. The installation went fine thanks to the included documentation. The package included spare SATA cables and many other peripheral parts that came in handy.
Summary: ! Achtung für die Inbetriebnahme eines Intel I7 Prozessors ist ein BIOS Update Notwendig ! Ohne das richtige Bios Update kommt es bei dem I7 zu der weniger bekannten Start-Reset Endlosschleife, sprich 10 Sekunden Start - dann Reset - nach 3 Sekunden geht es von vorne los.
