Summary: This motherboard really performs well out of the box replaced existing motherboard that has no overclocking capabilities with this one. 16gb ram a Cooler Master evo 212 and an i7 3770k later and it handles everything I throw at it.
Summary: It is insanely difficult to plug in the 24-pin power connector for the motherboard, and just a tad bit difficult to plug in the 4-pin cpu power connector. I don't know if that was because of the motherboard or the power supply plugs, but it was just frustrating.
Summary: I bought this mobo because I thought MSI was a solid company. In fact I got two of their GTX 760's. I bought this from another seller on 2/24/14. It died on 4/15/14. After this incident, I have done some research into MSI and it appears that their mobo's are severely lacking in quality.
THEY WILL NOT ACCEPT YOUR REBATES, WILL NEVER BUY MSI PRODUCTS EVERAGAIN

Summary: **UPDATE** 11/29/2013 They have contacted me personally and fix all my rebates. So I have updated my rating to 5 stars. The motherboard has been rock solid since I have installed it. **UPDATE** Good basic motherboard for Novice PC builders.
