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: MSI bios is very clean, thats about all the pros i can think of.
Cons: Started giving me problems after about 3 months so i had to RMA. My first call to CS the rep answered hello and that's it. Then they wanted me to pay shipping and after arguing and asking for a supervisor he finally decided to send a label, electronically. Now I have been in the RMA process for a...
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.

Pros: After using many different motherboards This one has great looks but no use

Cons: Look at other thoughts. Look at other thoughts. Look at other thoughts. Look at other thoughts.
Pros: Was rated as one of the top 1155 z68 boards.
Cons: Arrived, dropped i7-2500k, and put all associated pieces in. It would not boot. Took out processor and noticed bent pins. Applied for RMA, sent back, then got email stating rejected due to customer damage. The 1155 is pretty much fool proof and I have been building systems for quite a long time. ...
Summary: I purchased this board as a replacement after having two Asus Sabertooth P67's have their secondary PCIEx16 slots stop working. It was a massive downgrade, The board I got was dead on arrival and would bleep 4 times then reboot.
