Summary: The board works fine, but they wouldn't honor my rebate. Everything was done correctly. Other companies make acceptable boards, but I really can't recommend anyone on the basis of customer service. These companies don't give two craps about you. I've owned another msi mobo in the past and currently own a pre-oc'd gtx 570 from msi. However, I won't be purchasing from them again. One try is all you get before you've soured my opinion.
Summary: Great product. Extra power input for SLI or Crossfire for stability. Extremely compatible with almost all DDR3 ram out there. Easy interactive BIOS upgrade is a plus. Overall five star product. I just love it.
Summary: I am going to keep this review quite short. This motherboard is outstanding. Why? I am not a big "tweaker" / "overclocker" but it give you the ability to do that simply. Make sure that you update the BIOS to the newest version ASAP after install of Motherboard. It has an outstanding 5 year warranty but it requires submitting the information within thirty days of purchase. Plus it had a forty dollar rebate...
Summary: I spent hours trying to figure out why this board wouldn't start up. Long story short, the CR2032 battery on the motherboard I received was completely dead. Apparently that caused it not to power up at all. After removing and re-seating all my components and the power plugs multiple times I finally decided to remove the CMOS battery and check it's voltage. It read 0.08 Volts (should be 3 Volts) so it was completely drained.
Summary: I had an Asus p8p67 Evo and I blew it because i put too many high voltage on my overclock this board handle it with no probleme and more... I'm really surprise because it's my first MSI product and I'm not dissapointed it's a really good board no choice to do GD-80 is the top for the price
Pros: Price,Look,Warranty,Heavy build and many more
