Summary: Overall Good mobo, love the go2 bios software which allows you to go in bios when the computer restarts. That means no more spamming the keyboard to get in bios. The blue led for cpu phase can be turned off but not the blue LEDs on the bottom of the board. Now the cons MSI control center software needs a lot of work. It has no option to open on start up, fan controller manual control is speed options are 50%, 75%, or 100%.
Summary: They replaced my motherboard within 1 week. I wrote my previous comment pretty upset and I do not believe a one. I believed I was just unlucky and had a defective part. Overall I did love this mobo but I bought myself a new mobo on Saturday.
Summary: This motherboard has a lot of features and easy to setup. I would give 5-Stars, but the 1st board was DOA (Error 55). The replacement board is working great so far and this system is extremely fast with instant on and instant off.
Summary: i would have gave it a 5 but there are some bios issues from the begenning i had to flash bios just to get the ethernet to work and then if you dont have boot log settings right you get boot errors and could be stuck in a loop great for overclocking
Summary: bios update that adds secure boot, fast boot for windows 8 I use Ceton Infinitv4 PCI InfiniTV 4 PCIe with this. the computer will come out hibernate to record a show then then go back to hibernate saving power.
Summary: This delivers amazing capabilities for true next generation extreme gaming. This motherboard is thx certified motherboard (thx is a trade mark of a high-end audio/visual reproduction standard for movies, home theatres, computer speakers and other audio devices.
