Summary: I've always used MSI boards in my builds and have never had a problem. This board however was the first. The performance is great and I like the new bios menu. The problem with this board is the onboard sound. Very crackly, volume always going up and down and balance back and forth.
Summary: This motherboard is really good, but its not my favorite. The auto overclock fuction doesnt work very well. it is very fast at single purpose tasks, ie gaming. It does seem to bottleneck with multiple tasks though
MSI FAN since 1986 <--- NOT A TYPO! Micro-Star International / American Mega-Trends

Summary: MSI (Micro-Star International) is what the US Gov., Feds and Brass (Military) uses ... back then (and today too, but you're not supposed to know that - LOL) besides IBM, Sperry - Rand, and yadda, yadda, yadda ...
Summary: Great board, very stable, wouldn't boot from CD or recognize my usb keyboard until I updated the BIOS. The BIOS was several revisions out of date, but no problems flashing new ones from a flash drive.
Board is good, but Amazon sold an open item as new

Summary: My issue with this item is that it was an open box or returned item. There was no shrink wrap on the box, and the inside was a mess. The board was hanging out of the static wrap and the manuals weren't in their slots and were folded up.
Summary: Good (not great) overclocker, fast, stable, sexy! BIOS GUI is a tad confusing. Software suite is above average compared to other boards I've owned. For the price it's hard to find much fault with this board.
Summary: I order this a little over a month ago, on the 30th day, I found the board to be defective. But I understand that things happen, and sometimes with any type of technology, sometimes things do not work right.
