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.
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.
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 -...
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.
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...
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!
