User Review

Eric_L, NCIX.com
13 January 2014
  • Summary: Very mixed feelings about this board. While its been working great for a few months. Its initial install left a bad taste in my mouth. Out of the box the mosfet heatsink was dangling from the board, with one of the screws sitting inside the box. There was also clear cosmetic damage to the socket, and the retention bracket. Even the front IO header pins were bent. I first assumed that NCIX must have sent me a used board.
  • Pros: z87 for around 100$, Stable 4670K overclock, Intuitive bios layout
  • Cons: Msi's quality control, General board layout, Memory compatibility, Pcie clearance

Very picky on memory

  • Summary: I got this for a rebuild along with a Haswell i5. Would not POST. After reading a bunch of websites for info I found out this motherboard is picky about memory. Ended up returning it.

Great Budget mATX Overclocker

  • 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.

Only 2 case fan connectors?

Doug Murphy, Amazon

  • Summary: The USB 3.0 connector on the board is blocked by my Rosewill Line Glow case Rosewill ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with Dual USB 3.0 and Four Fans, Black LINE GLOW 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.
