Summary: came with white box instead of original box, i dont know if it is because ive ordered refurb ones. however, ive noticed that one of the mobo came with some damaged cpu pins, but ive just gotten it fixed spending about 1hr and 30mins to fix it, just didnt want to wait for return and replace...
Summary: Originally I would have given this higher ratings. The board went out on me 3 months after I built a new high end computer. This board started out good, was easy to make BIOS settings changes, and it looks great.
Summary: I bought and broke this (jammed in non-fitting CPU), the CPU socket only takes older CPUs, so I would be careful in buying this!

Summary: The product was not the worse in its entirety, non of the USB ports worked at first so I had to download all this software to try and make it work, I got nothing. I called msi and all they said was, it's probably a hardware problem talk to your provider about warranty.
Summary: Purchased as a computer for casual gaming. Looks great and works great, no complaints about the performance. Occasional non-response from internet while gaming, but not sure if its the software or the isp.
Pros: -Great control from kill-LAN feature, -Looks great, -Fast bundle
Cons: -A little on the pricy side even with the rebates
Summary: i dint use it b4 and was having major B.S.O.D issues because of conflicting drivers. so please save ur self the night mare and use the live update that msi provides u can get an up to date version at the msi site. can select what you want to or dont want to update on it.
