Excellent board for the money with many integrated features, I Rec.it!!
7 November 2013
Summary: I have now motherboard installed for two months now. its: 1) Very stable 2) i core 7 runs cool on board, also a function of Coolmaster V* fan. 3) Plenty of USB3 ports front Via a front panel optional) & back 4) Bluetooth & Wifi integrated into board, makes connection cleaner than having a wired ethernet connection, but for some reason I prefer a wired connection of "Desktops" go figure. 5)Dual BIOS may come in handy if the initial BIOS fails.
Summary: This motherboard is a delight. I am not an extreme over clocker so the board is perfect for me. In general, MSI makes a exceptionally good product. I'm never disappointed. Also, it looks great!
Summary: Love this board. MSI delivered with quality and many features. Its built in overclocking genie is simple to use and I was able to overclock both my RAM and CPU with it. I also did a 24/7 OC with my RAM and kept the CPU stock right now. Need to buy an after market CPU cooler to keep it OC, but overall its features with OCing are easy. This is my 4th board I have personally used and my first Intel board and i'm loving it.
Summary: Though I bought this because I was going through a phase of desiring to play Skyrim maxed out with ENB, I ended up loving it because of the speed it afforded me when rendering AE and Cinema 4D.
