Summary: I like MSI motherboards, but this one had problems and had to be returned. Based upon past experience with MSI, I would certainly be willing to give another one a try. These things occasionally happen.
Summary: I bought this board as a replacement for one that died. The board looks sweet and has a ample amount of nice features for a budget board. It went in easily and booted up perfectly the first time. I usually have good luck with MSI products so I'm sure I'm looking at a good long life from this board.
Summary: If you don't want to spend too much money this is what you are looking for.has everything you need to make a good gaming computer it even has the ability to be over cloucked not by much but you don't have to run the risk of installing something that won't work and have to undo it
Summary: This mother board meets expectations and exceeds them! For the price put on this it is a work of art and looks quite good in a case if I do say so myself. Click bios is good easy ram overclock and all the bits and bobs you need. Also I don't recommend using there overclock because its very unstable do it yourself in bios. Great motherboard!
Summary: I considered Asus & As Rock boards but ultimately chose this Z77. This board has 80% of the features of more expensive boards and anywhere from $60 to $150 dollars cheaper as well. The overclock interface is very simple to use and works like a charm. Meaning you can control every technical parameter if you know what you're doing, or use the OC Genie to squeeze out more performance with having to know about voltages and fry your CPU.
Solid mobo. Works out of the box with Ubuntu Linux
23 February 2013
Summary: The Good: - Everything worked right out of the box. - Compatible with Ubuntu 12.10 linux - Latest Intel "Northbridge/Southbridge" chip - Room to expand. - Low cost The Bad: - Poorly executed graphical UEFI - The physical board is thin. Overall: I'm fairly impressed with this motherboard. I have been out of building desktops for years now, so I had to do quite a bit of research before settling on this mobo.
