Prevelant audio driver issues and poor tech support

Summary: Prioritize other motherboards over this one (or msi brand). Sure, chances are that you might not have an issue at all, but it's ridiculous how many people have had audio issues regarding the onboard audio drivers and NONE of them have been solved except through dedicated sound cards (find out for...
Pros: -Quite a lot of OC features and support
Cons: -Prominent issues with audio (both output and mic). realtek audio drivers are notoriously -Unhelpful customer/tech support
Summary: Well waiting 10-15 days isn't an option for me so I ended up shelling out another $200 for another board w/next day delivery won't name brands but yeah when/ IF this board gets replaced I'll give it another shot in my soon to be dedicated gaming pc since I learned today that having only 1 pc in the...
Pros: Was a great board while it lasted all the goodies , great color scheme though was a bit hard to build around if you care about that sort of thing.
Cons: Board lasted 5 months , Bought on 02/08/2013 and Died 07/02/2013, turned pc on and heard a hissing and popping / crackling sound then smoke rolling out of the top of my case was so scared I panicked and nearly knocked my case off the desk trying to get it disconnected from the surge protector. Ms...
Summary: For all the publications of how great and how much testing they have done on this board, it still came doa...would not post memory - But Amazon took care of me and made sure the return was quick and painless.
Summary: This board will works great as long as you don't play around with the bios too much because you just never what can cause it the malfunction. M.S.I tech support doesn't even help you to trouble shoot your problems, all they did was send me video link showing me how to flash the bios and when i...
Pros: Great board.
Cons: I have an S S D that i tried to make my boot drive when i was in the bios, after i did that and clicked saved to exit my computer rebooted and I thought it was going to show the usual on screen start up but no it went straight into boot looping and i figured OK something isn't right here, I then ...
Summary: Not worth my time. Its not the shipping its not newegg its msi for sending out boards that dont work. I have read cases where people have sent boards back, and they sent the same one back, and because they couldnt find the issue, they didnt fix it. if this happens to me i will never buy Msi.
Pros: I first reviewed this board as being perfect....Yet as time has progressed i have notices several issures with it. For example: The phase lights on the board are always flikering, I managed to buy a corsair hx750 i had a riadmax hybrid 630, and a rosewill 500 power supplies. All of which work per...
Cons: The bad outweighs the good in this case. I contacted msi already to send it back. Tired of talking to some non speaking representative on the phone that i cant understand. I want this solved.
Summary: This motherboard worked perfectly until the sata port went out 3 months in and the wifi quit working today. I will not use another MSI motherboard until I am sure they fix their issues with quality.
Pros: Built in wifi and bluetooth are nice along with the OC Genie.
Cons: Wifi module is defective after only 7 months. One of the Sata 3 (6gbp/s) port is also defective.
Summary: Ok, built about 8 computers over last 10 years. Long story short, board had a bad front USB expansion connector/plug and it caused me 3 hours of pain to figure out and avoid in future. #3 plug if you're interested.
Excerpt: Я разочаровался в этой МП, не стоит она таких денег!!!
Pros: Не много.Хорошая игра маркетинга. Дизайн платы и изобилие светодиодов. Действительно толстый стеклотекстолит (основа печатной платы), сломать её или, хотя бы согнуть будет проблематично. Массивный радиатор южного моста и системы питания CPU, но холодным такое охлаждение все равно не назовешь
Cons: Что не понравилось, наличие всего 5 разьемов под вентиляторы с ШИМ (лучше бы сделали трех пиновые), т.к. ниже 50% оборотов кулера понизить нельзя, кроме CPU FAN, там вплоть до 0% (при этом кулер все равно работает, но на очень низких оборотах). Все остальные 4 кулера работают на (мин) 50% и орут ...
Summary: Habe das Mainboard schnell und gut verpackt erhalten und dann gleich eingebaut. Es kam zum ersten aufgeregten Booten, was nach ein paar Sekunden vorbei war. Nein, es war nicht oben angekommen, es bleib stur irgendwo auf den Weg zu einer Signalausgabe zum Monitor stehen, Fehlercode 62.
