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. In the end the board's amazing audio wasnt that good either, everytime I would increase the volume in my speakers for volume 1-10 or something you would hear a buzzing noise then from 10-100 was when it...
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. the board is great so far super easy to overclock to. no other issues since i used the liveupdate to get my drivers.
Summary: After first receiving this device and completing my first build the side panel didn't work (nor did a dedicated graphics card) I could not get a bios screen (so mad). After taking the entire build back apart I called Amazon and they refunded my money. I rebuilt my device with this same motherboard . After finally getting my beautiful machine built the second time the computer worked PERFECTLY. The drivers were great and quick with the msi disc. I love my motherboard now.
