4 out of 5 eggsGood for standard use.

Pros: I used this motherboard in a system with an i7 940 for several years. However, it should be noted that I never attempted to overclock it and used it with 550 to 700 watt power supplies of very high quality.

Based on other reviews, I'm going to assume this is NOT a good board for overclocking.

For standard use, this motherboard had been rock solid and has given me no problems. It always boots up. It never BSODs or crashes. Again, I use only the best power supplies and I also use ideal air flow in my systems.

It DOES work with Windows 8. However, if you want the latest drivers you will need to get them from the Chipset manufacturers website rather than MSI, as MSI is not supporting this motherboard with software any longer. Unless you want to have a brain stroke arguing with tech support in India, don't even bother calling them.

With the i7 940 and a good video card, this can handle any video game at 1080p, with no bottlenecks or dropped frames.

Cons: I had two problems with this board:
(1) It is not being supported by MSI with Windows 8 drivers, though the manufacturers of the individual chip-sets on the board HAVE updated Windows 8 drivers! This means that all MSI has to do is update their database and they are just too lazy to do it!

(2) The links for ALL drivers on for this motherboard (except for the on-board LAN) are dead on the MSI site! I spent HOURS talking to their condescending staff before one of them actually tried to download the drivers himself and realized that I was right.

(3) The last two RAM slots are very loose, so I only use the first four RAM slots. Otherwise, I have to turn off the computer, open up the system and wiggle the RAM to get the PC to see it. If I just use the first four slots I never have that problem. This is not an electronic or mechanical problem, but is due to the loose plastic molding of the actual RAM slots in the last channel.

(3) The way the board is laid out makes it very difficult to install in many ATX cases.

2 out of 5 eggsLook Elsewhere

Pros: Great BIOS Options - High level of customization and it has ever been easier to overclock a CPU. The Northbridge is a bit hot, but I am not worried. Plus, for under $200, it's nice to have this many slots for RAM.

Cons: I spent over 2 days between my RAM's manufacturer support and MSI's support trying to get this thing to POST. It wouldn't boot up. I had to start with one stick of RAM, and configure its settings and voltage correctly (default settings for them was WAY off). Only then was I able to get to post, but only 8 of the 12 gigs of RAM were showing up. After many phonecalls and e-mails, hours of trial and error, and a stubborn desire to finish this thing, I found that the middle channel (DIMM 4 and 3) was not showing up and no one told me that (MSI told me I had to up my PSU wattage and swap out every component, even though it was obviously working with one stick).

I now only have two channels when three are posted. To RMA the thing, now, would be a several-week headache and I just need to get my family's computer up and running and will deal with the 12 gigs in two channels instead of the three. I only hope this doesn't come back to bite me. I will steer clear of MSI from here on out

Other Thoughts: Not my first build. Did IT for 2+ Years.

This might help if you come across a similar problem and have already made the mistake of buying this - the RAM DIMM slots are configured as follows (the manual shows no numerical label for this and is horizontal): From left to right 2-1-4-3-6-5.

I usually buy ASUS, Gigabyte, and EliteGroup, but this one had my eye from its price point. Never again.

Current Build:

- Intel Core i7-950 Bloomfield 3.06GHz LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Processor
- G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 12GB (3 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9T-12GBRL
- ZOTAC ZT-50603-10L GeForce GT 520 (Fermi) 1GB 64-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
- MSI X58M LGA 1366 Intel X58 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
- 750 Watt PSU
- Acer 23'' WideScreen LCD
- Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5"

2 out of 5 eggsGood at first glance...

Pros: Easy to set up.

SLI

Overall solid overclocking ability

Cons: After about a year of owning this motherboard, the IOH temperatures skyrocket it. The heatsink is literally 95 Celcius under load for the Northbridge. I didn't believe it at first until I touched the actual heatsink.

It's also causing the CPU temperature to misread. . Was definitely innacurate. Supposedly my CPU is also at 100 C and it underclocks my i7 down to 2 ghz to compensate for the hot temperatures... I touched the heatsink, was barely warm when it reached its TJMax @100C.

Got a different board today, and it resolved all my problems.

Other Thoughts: This board I will admit worked perfectly fine for the first year or so, then started having these major issues.

Not sure if I'm unlucky, haven't had problems with MSI before and I would recommend this board if these problems never came up.

Also I did a bit of searching and this isn't exactly an uncommon problem from what I've found. Knowing this, I would try avoiding this Mobo.

2 out of 5 eggsI'm on my third! I might be done with MSI

Pros: Fairly Speedy,the fact that it includes IDE and Sata,the colors are cool.

Cons: Northbridge hot, many BSOD's.Stinks for overclocking (dont bother).Various strange things happening @ boot.Smells of burning plastic sometimes.This is my third i am getting sent to me..The first fried a month after i bought it.The second,Died about 4-5 months later..bought 4/2011 (today is 10/21/2011)

The second i had to go through msi...Though they were helpful,it takes a LONG time,and msi's website rma part is slow....

Other Thoughts: I bought this in one of those DIY packs with everything included,it was a great deal,so i put up with the suspect mobo.
The sad thing is i've bought 6 biostar and gigabyte mobos for 1/3 of this price that would stomp all over this.Bottom line,im giving two eggs basically because of Customer service both on Neweggs and MSI's part...Both were nice...a little slow,but nice.Newegg was fast,not msi...(I LOVE NEWEGG)

If it werent for the customer service,i would've written a REEEELY bad review :)

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

Pros: Small form factor, high ram capacity, X58 chipset

Cons: Locks up the system about twice on average each day

Other Thoughts: I used to run an EVGA SLI LE board with my rig in a Corsair Obsidian case, it wasn't that much fun to take to LAN parties. So I got a Thermaltake LAN Box and one of these boards to fit the form factor. I have had nothing but fits with the board since I did the switch. At least twice a day the system will just freeze up in the middle of a game, a movie, an important paper, just whenever the time is the worst for me. When my rig was outfitted with the EVGA board it NEVER locked up. I mean EVER. And the case and the mobo were the only two things I changed so I attribute the negative behavior of my PC to the MSI motherboard.

3 out of 5 eggsMSI X58M Freezing up

Pros: Very easy to setup out of the box. It was up and running in no time. Whenever it runs, it is a very good MB.

Cons: About one week after I built the system, it has been freezing up and I can't seem to figure out how to fix it. It runs for about 5 mins to a half an hour then it freezes up and I have to restart it. It would be a good motherboard if I can figure out how to get it to stop from freezing.

3 out of 5 eggsAlright part, problems not MSI's fault

Pros: - mATX. Not very many boards in this size for this chipset; when I bought this one in 2009 there were only two options.
- Okay price. That other option was $100 more.

Cons: - Northbridge does run pretty hot.
- Not exactly an overclocking champion.
- I'm on my third part. Had to do an RMA for board failure within 6 - 7 months, and another RMA for the replacement because it was sent with a missing northbridge heatsink clamp.
- Why in Thor's name do motherboard manufacturers not understand that an X1 slot should go ABOVE an X16 slot?! Why???!!

5 out of 5 eggsGrate little board

Pros: I've been running this board over a year now with a core i7 920 at 3.6ghz at stock voltages. I just added 2x 6950's in CF and it handles them like a champ. This board has been rock solid for me for a long time and I have no doubt it will stay solid until my next upgrade.

Cons: I did replace the NB cooler when I first got it because it ran really hot.

Other Thoughts: Newegg is awesome, as always.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat mobo

Pros: Very easy going motherboard. Very nice OC features. Best motherboard I have ever owned.

Cons: Like said before in the reviews, the North Bridge does get hot. When I had my stock cooler on the bit of air that hit it helped keep it at about 64c. Now that is hot but these 58 chip motherboards can take that.Then I put on my water cool H50 and now air was hitting it at all and it hit 82c! Then I purchased a spot fan for 15.99 and now doesn't get above 43c. Good investment I think.

Other Thoughts: Bios updating is a bit hard to find anything about, but that is not effecting my opinion and/or rating.
