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.
Summary: Excellent value for users that only require the basic accessories/features and don't require their CPUs to be overclocked. There are a few settings to allow minor overclocking but don't expect much. Overall an excellent board if you are on a budget.
Summary: This board supports pretty much all of the latest technologies as of late 2012. It has USB 3.0, HDMI, PCI Express 3.0, and supports the 3rd generation Intel Core CPUs. Sturdy, reliable, affordable, and has BIOS designed for overclocking to your heart's contentment. The board supports 32 GB of DDR3 RAM. I have no complaints and found it easy to setup and use and once setup, it runs very reliably.
Motherboard is Great but HD audio pot is so far away!

Summary: My cousin recommend this motherboard to me so I bought it. All in all it is a great motherboard everything is perfect. Although a bit more SATA 3.0 ports would be nice. The only problem I had with my board is that the HD audio plug in for my case is very far away and the cable for it is very short! I accidentally pulled on it and severely bent the HD audio metallic stick outs on my motherboard.
