Summary: Has all the expansion slots I needed, PCI-E 3.0 is very nice. Assembly with this mobo was very easy, bios worked nicely - got a POST immediately for my first build! Even had good access with all the wires and the heatsink installed while IN my case. MSI makes an excellent product!
Summary: I like this board a lot!!! I repair and sell PC' for a living. I have sold Dell's for years. Decided to use this MOBO to upgrade 4 of my own machines. PROS (very little testing done before writing this review) GREAT features, I love the layout of the board.
Summary: She is the one that keeps them all together and work as one. She is a magnificent blue giant. This ATX mobo (motherboard) is one of a kind; price wise, You couldn't ask for more out of this board. It has the capacity and features that one needs to build a computer.
Summary: I moved my i5-2500K from my prior MSI P67A to this new Z77. Installed a new GTX 670 4GB, 128 GB Crucial M4 SSD, and 8GB (2x4) GSkill Ripjaws (8-8-8-24)........using OC Genie, the bios shows 4200 MHz and 8-8-8-24 ram timings.....one button press is all it took to get 900 free MHz of OC!
Summary: I installed this along with an i7-3770K about a week ago, and so far it's been running very solid. I haven't overclocked it yet (still not sure if I need to), but I feel that this board was a great value.
