Summary: Been using it for a couple of months now, and it's been performing like a champ. Overclocked my 3570 CPU to 4.2ghz, without an increase in voltage, as well as a stable overclock to my RAM. Has all the ports I need, but take note that it doesn't come equipped with a PATA connection. One thing the bios are missing is the ability to undervolt the CPU.
Solid mobo. Works out of the box with Ubuntu Linux
20 October 2012
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.
Summary: OK, it's not a top-of-the-line gamers board, but there are other boards for that... that cost 3-4 times more. This one did what it needed to do: accept all other hardware - Core i5 2570K - Corsair DDR3-1600 4x2 GB which I had lying around and NO other motherboard would accept without blue-screens - Samsung SSD 840 Pro Ofcourse no more legacy ports on this one, so you can forget about the floppy or the IDE DVD-RW you had lying around.
Summary: So i am speaking with experience with this board. It is now around 7 months since i brought this board and overall is is very good, as you would expect from MSI the bios is very easy to navigate and includes a web browser. All of the ports you need are there with more than enough USB ports.
Summary: This motherboard is decent value and does what I want, but there are a few problems: 1. The graphical bios works using a mouse, but I use a trackball, which confuses it no end. 2. My USB and network ports are kept online after I power down - I haven't worked out how to prevent this. 3. The on-chip Linux doesn't work on Linux (at least I haven't worked out how to use it without the CD), which is bonkers. It's easier and faster to use Puppy Linux on a USB key.
Summary: I was going to buy a H77 motherboard due to the fact I had bought an i3 3220, however I cannot find a suitable h77 for my needs and i didn't want a mATX form factor. This was just as cheap as the H77 boards and I personally chose it to match the rest of my computer as i have a see through side panel. If I ever want to upgrade to a CPU which can overclock, then I now have the option to do so.
Conclusion: Отличная недорогая мать для новых процов "иви"!
Pros: Достоинства:, Недорогая,есть слоты PCI,что для меня немаловажно,не сильно греется,охлад на питальниках,неплохо гонится множителем 3570К!Согласен с коментом выше:видеокарта АМД 7950 всё работает чётко!Новый графический интерфейс биоса очень удобен!
Cons: Недостатки:, Не работает из под винды 7х64 клик биос,может только у меня,надеюсь исправят,но это не критично ,т.к, всё прекрасно работает в биос!
