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: I've been using the motherboard for the last couple of months and its been rock solid with my overclocked 4670k. It was a breeze to install and does everything I expected it to do. I will most definitely will look at MSI again when planning my next upgrade.
Summary: This motherboard is very stable and reliable, it's my first MSI motherboard and will probably not be my last. I bought this in June or July 2013 and have not ran into any issues with it, only a few very minor nitpicks. I have a 4670k overclocked to 4.4ghz 24/7 usage aircooled (NHD14), over all this is a really solid motherboard.
Pros: - Build Quality (power design is really nice)
Cons: Not really a con, but MSI's software is kind of clunky and annoying, but you can do without it if you wish, I still have Live Update installed just to let me know when driver updates are available, I do not use the software for installing them.
Summary: I originally chose this board as I was going to pair it with an i7 4770k CPU. However, I learned that the "k" series do not provide virtualization support. I still decided to go with this board as it was my first choice and I did not feel like going through the search process all over again. This also leaves me room to upgrade my processor to an unlocked version should I ever choose to do so. This board was a breeze to set up and looks great.
Pros: - Great color scheme
Cons: - Heat sink around processor sits rather close so you may issues securely setting the stock processor cooler
Summary: The board is well laid out and it was easy to install. Love the BIOS app, which let's you setup the computer and overclock. One of the apps provided on disk is "Live Update." It automatically goes out and finds updates for the board and installs them all at once or one at a time. You can also select which updates you want.
