Summary: Got this board to replace a Z77 I had that was crapping out, and I'm finding that this one has the same problems. Sometimes the computer just turns off, and there's definite issues with power delivery to peripherals. Checked it with multiple PSUs, and it's not that.
Summary: I am now on my 3rd mpower z87 motherboard. The first one work would not power up. It would start to power, for a split second, then crap out. The fans would turn for a moment then power would shut off. Second board worked great for about a month, then the exact same thing.
Summary: I just finished building my computer and booted it up for the third time when windows 8 said that there was a problem. I attempted to take the SATA 3 cable included with the motherboard off the Corsair Force GT SSD. It would not come off.
Summary: I really was excited to work with this board on my new build. I've heard a lot of really good things about this board, and I was ready to do some crazy overclocking with it. The first board I got had bent CPU pins (ordered from SuperBiiz.com).
Summary: This is an amazing motherboard. Although i might be too stupid to use it. I can't seem to get the over clocking to work, i have to keep clearing the cosmos button on the back of the pc. Besides that though, the motherboard runs super cool and is made very well.
Summary: Pros Very stable User friendly Nice BIOS interface Quality components WI-FI and Bluetooth included Easy to overclock Gamer's dream Against WI-FI antenas could be attached on the motherboard, instead being connected via wire
Summary: This product is the best Z87 Haswell motherboard out that you can buy. Everything you've read about it being awesome is true. You might hear a lot of things about the Killer Ethernet being bad but that is 100% untrue.
The bios is extremely user friendly and nothing like older computers

Summary: Very powerful motherboard! This thing was designed for overclocking because it has dual bios and a reset switch on the back of the motherboard in case you mess up your bios you can click it and everything is back to normal. The bios is extremely user friendly and nothing like older computers.
Summary: Beautifully crafted motherboard. As a novice I totally loved the auto overclock switches. I have tried to play with the settings manually but i dont have the time to trial and error to get a stable system so i let the mobo do all of that for me and it does it very well.
Summary: ASUS Z87 PRO VS MSI Z87 MPOWER: I originally purchased the Asus Z87 Pro which I returned due to issues, so this will basically be a comparison between the two. My current MSI build is with a 4770k, MSI GTX760, 8gb Patriot DDR3 Memory, 750W PSU Corsair, and 64GB SanDisk SSD.
