Waste of money

Sheila A., Newegg
18 September 2015
  • Summary: I purchased this board sometime ago (Black Friday), and had it stored in my closet. I recently stumbled across it and decided to do a build. At the moment of truth...powers up for about three seconds and powers off. About five seconds later the cycle repeats.
  • Pros: None here, board never worked. I was going for no eggs here but I am forced to put at least one egg here.
  • Cons: Same as pros...nothing to evaluate here since the board never post

  • Summary: If anyone had the same issue please contact me at zccomputers.com@gmail.com
  • Pros: Love the UEFI BIOS. Love the blue lights. Black looks cool.
  • Cons: Do not buy! When booting up 75% of the time has a white line in the corner and freezes. Tried using a different hard drive, still an issue. Uninstalled Windows, still an issue.

Shawn L., Newegg
16 May 2012
  • Summary: I have been in contact with MSI customer support for the last two days trying to understand why they refuse to update the B3 revision boards with 22nm support. They went so far as responding to my review below, then ignored me again when I contacted them.

  • Cons: STILL NO 22NM IVY BRIDGE SUPPORT!!!

MSI socket pins bent
