5 out of 5 eggsGood for the price

Pros: Super easy setup, very nice looking with the red matched my ripjaws perfectly! Great price, Have had it for about 8 months with no issues, very easy to use.

Cons: Worst thing for me is that it doesn't support dolby digital live, I eventually bought a sound card for $100 which sounds real crisp. The sound for the motherboard is fine, works with most headsets, but I bought the Astro A50 and had to get a soundcard to make the surround sound sound like surround sound... other than that it's a good buy, if you have a little extra there's probably better options..

Other Thoughts: Running smooth after 8 months, running it with a GTX 770 and an i5 4670k, looking to buy another 770 soon..

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic

Pros: Affordable. Lots of great features. Fast, wicked easy set up.

Cons: Used the MSI update tool (from their website) to update my system... then it complained there was no valid driver for the NIC and wouldn't let me install a new one. Removed NIC from device manager, rebooted, redetected card, installed latest driver. Works, but it now has a funky card name (but it did detect it as a generic Qualcomm card during set up).

Other Thoughts: This is my first MSI board. I typically have used EVGA or ASUS boards. However, this board is beautiful and the set up was the easiest I've ever had when building a new rig. Definitely recommend.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Motherboard

Pros: BIOS Super easy to use.
Overclocking is simple.
Recognized all my hardware right away.

Cons: The only con, some of the drivers and features installed off the disc that comes with the motherboard caused my computer to get a bluescreen error reading "Drivers less than or equal to IQRL" and between updating the drivers manually via the MSI site for this product, and removing some of the features like WINKI that came with the board, the crashes are far less frequent. Hopefully I fixed it but any feedback from MSI would be appreciated in this. Windows 7 was a clean install.

Other Thoughts: Runs really stable excluding the driver issue I have run into. Stays cool as well.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat board!

Pros: Great bang for the buck. Positioning of CPU, MOBO power, sata headers is great. Very expandable beyond SLI. This is a great board for a medium range gaming rig. Excelent construction overall.

Cons: Lack of an sli bridge, and number of USB3.0 headers. No real surprise though.
