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: I have this in a custom build using a Fractal Design R2. If I use it as a stock board it runs fine. So far, every time I've tried the OC button it has crashed the system with a BSOD. I have an i7 4770K, and when the motherboard OC function is used it automatically goes to about 4.2 GHZ.

Summary: I'll occasionally have a few software issues with it, but the overclocking works great and it's overall a good working motherboard for both gaming and for overall and general use, such as software development or game design.
Summary: I like the motherboard and all the add-ons. It showed up pretty quick too. I'm having a problem with the ethernet port, but that might have been my fault when I installed it. Also, it comes with a very good wi-fi piece so I have that as a back-up.
Summary: A very solid, well designed board. I used the online manual to set this board up. Lots of connectors, easy to do with the manual instructions beside me on my laptop. The CPU and fan were easy to install, not always the case with some boards. Loads of Sata inputs, lots of USB 2 and 3 ports.
Summary: It was a great board for 5 min. It then wouldn't post, I know these things happen...So I opted for the better mobo instead. This was the first problem I have ever had with MSI and won't stop me from buying anymore. It seemed great for the 5 min it worked.
Summary: this is an expensive motherboard, however it is well designed and includes extras other boards just do not have I decided to purchase this top of the range board after my gigabyte board blew up and went to the graveyard after only 11 months use.
