Summary: I bought this as an upgrade for my wife's pc, as a graduation gift, which she opened today. Appeared completely dead, after six hours of working on it, managed to get it to boost, but won't actually start windows. Gets stuck in an infinite repair loop.
Summary: PCI-X controller on the south bridge is dead. This means that mobo works but no graphics card can be installed. Took it to professional diagnostics - diagnosis confirmed. Lesson learned, will never buy refurbished again.
Summary: This board has been great for one year, but just last night something went wrong. When I heard the usual windows 7 startup music, but no interface, and my monitor displayed "no signal". The OS appeared to launch (based on sounds), but no interface.

Summary: I ordered the Z77 otherboard EXACTLY as described in this advertisement from Sims Pieces. I waited. I waited. I waited. And then I waited some more. Then I told Sims Pieces that unless I received the order by the close of the next day of business, I would be forced to cancel the order.
I got a lemon.... Unit never worked from the begining !!!!!

Summary: MSI company is nasty Arrogant and if i may say has no support whatsoever. I sent the unit to be replaced (paid for shipping and unit returned after two weeks.....? ) hopefully to be replaced with a new unit; but for a strange reason they sent me the same defective unit again without any explanation...
Summary: Didn't get to install motherboard until I purchased processor. Two months later. Now motherboard is defective, CPU fan connector dead on arrival, RJ45 connector DOA. Didn't know about this until 30 days had past. Amazon says its passed returning. Good reviews on board. Hope I can resolve this.
Summary: This motherboard I worked for 3 months. After this time, the PC is turned off, spend a day and turns on and off. change the ram memory, power supply, enfiamiento system processor, the thermal paste, to the same processor and apparently is that the plate is 0 MSI crap for this dump.
Summary: I purchased this motherboard and installed it. It ran great for a month or just until I couldnt return it. Then The USB's burn out and can not use my key board and mouse. I was able to return it and bought another one a month later same thing happened.
Summary: Was dead on arrival, tried hooking it up and everything. When I turned on the PSU it clicked and made a popping sound. So far I can tell that my PSU/GPU is fine, not sure if my i5-3570k is okay because I don't have an intel mobo to test it.
