OPTIMIZED FOR MULTIPLE GRAPHICS CARDS
MSI gaming motherboard features one or more PCI-Express 3.0 slots, perfectly aligned and with enough space for an optimal airflow when using multiple graphics cards. That way, you will never have to worry about an overheating PC, while you are enjoying the best graphics jumping off from your monitor when running a NVIDIA SLI or AMD Crossfire gaming setup.

MILITARY CLASS 4 COMPONENTS
Military Class 4 is the next step in high quality components. The Hi-c Cap, Super Ferrite Choke and Solid CAPs will make sure that your PC runs more stable under extreme conditions.

HI-C CAP
A Hi-c CAP is a very small, but super-efficient capacitor. Besides ensuring enough spacing around a CPU socket to install large coolers, it also allows for 93% energy efficiency. Thanks to Hi-c CAP`s MSI motherboards are the most energy efficient in the market.

DARK CAP
With their aluminum core design, Dark CAP's have been a staple in high-end motherboard design and provides lower Equivalent Series Resistance (ESR) as well as its over-10-year lifespan.

SUPER FERRITE CHOKE
Super Ferrite Choke uses a Ferrite core that is Super-Permeable. This allows the Super Ferrite Choke to run at a 35 degree Celsius lower temperature, have a 30% higher current capacity, a 20% improvement in power efficiency and better overclocking power stability.

MILITARY CLASS ESSENTIALS
The core of Military Class 4 is based on the essentials which increase your stability in the toughest conditions. The humidity protection and high temperature protection ensure your system can survive each environment, no matter how harsh. The new structure of the PCB limits EMI radiation. On top of that all the connectors have ESD protection in order to prevent short circuit.

GAMING DEVICE PORT
You want more FPS, lower ping, but why use a pro-gaming mouse with old-fashioned standards? MSI Gaming Device Port is optimized for high polling rate mice (500 to 1000 Hz) which lowers your mouse's response time from 8 milliseconds to 1 millisecond! This gives a much smoother mouse response in games. The additional gold plating on the ports enhances the durability drastically and ensures your PS/2 and USB ports are always working when you ship out to a LAN party.

5 out of 5 eggsNo Beep

Pros: I like the board overall. I got 1 in Feb. and 1 May 20.

Cons: No Beep. Neither of the machines beep when they start. The speakers are conneted to JFP2 with the supplied Blocks and without them. I turned them upside down when using without the Blocks. But they just don't Beep. I thought it odd the first one did't Beep, but now the second board won't Beep either, leads me to believe this is like the GM ignition coverup. MSI HAS to know this problem exists with this board. I am using the supplied speakers that came stock with both boards.

Other Thoughts: No Beeps

4 out of 5 eggsRMA'd once but second time is a charm.

Pros: Has alot of sata connectors, and a msata connector. Has a power button on the board and automatic overclock button (did not try it yet). Works with 4th gen intel i series cpus.

Cons: RMA'd the first motherboard with the cpu. Checked all the pins, and there was nothing missing. Encountered a D0 error when first bootup where the bios did not post.

Other Thoughts: The manual says that you can put dual channel ram in the 2,4 slot, but it really doesn't matter if you put it in 1,3 slot either.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very fast, easy to configure, stable, great audio. The board looks great. Drivers provided by MSI seem very stable. UEFI is attractive, intuitive, and easy to navigate. Much better than my previous Asus.

Cons: The owners manual does not provide enough detail on how to configure the BIOS settings. It has more than a dozen pages on overclocking settings, but nothing on how to configure other settings, such as enabling UEFI in Windows 8.

Other Thoughts: I concur with the reviews at tech websites. This board provides a lot of features for the money, looks great, and is overall a great mid-level board.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Seems to be a good board. It gets the job done and it seems to have a decent amount of features. I haven't tried updating the bios but I'm not sure I want to. The msi update utility is really grey to use too.

Cons: None

3 out of 5 eggsSeems a bit flaky

Pros: Prior MSI boards have been great.

This board has 8 SATA ports, I have set up a pair of SSDs for the boot drive, a pair of Raptors for fast storage and a pair of Barracuda drives for large storage all in mirrored raid.

Windows experience is 7.9 for storage and memory, with 7.8 for graphics.

Cons: Randomly blue screens, using default settings with overclocking turned off. I am not sure if it is a bad board, bad memory or bad drivers. Ran memtest for 48+ hours with no errors though.

Other Thoughts: Really want to like this board, installed windows quickly, installed programs on it with no problem, but when I went to copy files over from the old computer's drive using an external USB drive, it started to blue screen. Running games on it will blue screen. Running a load test to max out the 4/8 cores for 8 hours will get the temp up to 54C so it doesn't seem to be a heat problem. Upgrading the bios using the MSI update procedure bricked one of the two selectable bioses.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat investment

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: First PC build since 2006, figured I needed to finally upgrade from my old XP box. MOBO worked great, installed in my old Cyberpower ATX case.
I do wish the BIOS was a bit easier to navigate, I think this is my ignorance more than anything.

Cons: None so far, PC works great

5 out of 5 eggsGreat gaming board!

Pros: Easy install, plenty of ports, powerful, flawless overall.

Cons: The BIOS is a bit...clunky? A little difficult to operate. USB3.0 internal port is flat with the bottom of the board, made installing the USB 3.0 cable for the case USB ports a nightmare. Much swearing and re-bending of the prongs in the USB3.0 input ensued.

1 out of 5 eggsWas excited.. But it's not working.

Pros: Looks good.

Cons: Not working...I went to a specialized PC shop to build the pc with the parts i bought on newegg (For like 2300$)

No monitor ,display, no beep sound even with the ram-sticks out, it simply not working. I've tried everything but it won't work.

I paid high price and can't even use it... I hope MSI will do something about this or even newegg customers service.
