Summary: This is my first time on MSI motherboard I usually used on the past gigabyte, but this year i wanted to give MSI a try but I can see im very disappointed in this motherboard, this is my third day since the build and Ive been struggling since i hit the on button im running this motherboard with a pair of 8gb corsair platinum ddr3 for a total of 16 GB and a i core 7 4790k, my first issue was the VGA that want recognized but got through that issue quickly but after that i...
Summary: Great motherboard for a great price. I was so happy to find a coast effective board that could hang with the more costly boards. I've had little problems with the board, except never really figured out how to get the on board graphics card working, but really who cares when you are packing a high end reference card.
Summary: Great Motherboard with more than enough slots and ports for your sata connectors also its BIOS is amazing with a simple overclock GUI and even better CPU temp(or amount being used) led displays on the motherboard hefty and strong highly recommended for a budget build
Summary: I just bought this MOBO recently. I put the parts together, and the first thing I notice is that the CPU temp starts off at 41 Celsius and goes up to 58 Celsius on idle when viewing from the BIOS. I install windows 8.1, and the drivers using the Command Center App that came with the MOBO, I discovered that the CPU temp shows 28 Celsius. After a small amount of usage, the computer trips off.
Pros: Easy to Build, It has nice a GUI for the BIOS, and the Command Center tool was really helpful
Cons: Faulty MOBO. Random shut downs. CPU temp starts off very high on idle
Summary: most badass MOBO ever, the attention to detail is astonishing, the dragon shaped heath sink OMG, it feels like art, it works great, i use it for a 7 gpu rig for coin mining, does the job while looking cool
Summary: Great mother board. Only thing the could have improved on was the size of the heat sinks located above the CPU. They are shaped like dragons which is cool. BUT since they are so big, at least in my case it is preventing me from adding a fan to the top of my case. The one touch over clock is awesome especially if you are not experienced with over clocking CPUs. The dual bios is cool incase one crashes you wont have to worry to much.
