Not very happy with.

Mike W., Newegg
2 February 2015
  • Summary: I would not recommend this motherboard. I do like MSI as a company but just not this motherboard...I have an MSI GTX 750Ti oc graphics card that I am very happy with and thought since the graphics card was good maybe their other products would follow suit....NOPE!
  • Pros: Price for combo.
  • Cons: Very unstable. More issues trying to setup and as one issue is resolved more show up. Could not get this board to run stable to install any software, BSODs and freezes continuously.
