Summary: I chose this board as it was the only z87 matx board in the price range without useless legacy pci slots instead of the pci-e I needed for my aftermarket sound card and wireless card. For the price, it has a very respectable complement of USB 3.0 connectors, overclocking features, and bios amenities. My only real complaint is with the USB 3.0 front panel header.
Summary: The USB 3.0 connector on the board is blocked by my Rosewill Line Glow case and maybe even by more cases out there because of the fact that the USB 3.0 connector is designed to be plugged in from the side and not from the top. I'm not sure how you could find out definitively if your case will block this connector without buying the case and the motherboard though. But don't buy this motherboard with that case. There is only one PCI-E 3.0 x16 slot which is fine.
Summary: I have been using MSI motherboards for many years and trust them for being fast, easy to set up, stable, durable and very reliable. Using an old MSI (m-atx)case and a generic 500w power supply my kit included: MSI Z87M m-ATX motherboard Kingston HyperX DDR3 1600MHz CL9 Non ECC (2x4GB kit) Intel Core i5 4570, Retail CPU (Socket 1150,3.20GHz,6MB) using its own fan & heat-sink Western Digital 2TB 6Gbps SATA Hard Disk Drive - (WD20EZRX) Green LG ELECTRONICS GH24NS95 LG SATA...
Summary: Temperamental, Unstable and fussy. Do not buy. The first problem was the layout. I had the use the 2nd PCI slot (which is x4) for my graphics card so I could fit in my CPU cooler so I couldn't use my graphics card to my full potential. That's more my fault as I didn't consider the physical size of the card. The second problem was incompatible RAM. I was using Corsair's 16GB DDR3 low profile RAM.
