3 out of 5 eggsJust OK

Pros: had everything i needed for a cheap board.

Cons: seems to be fussy with memory

Other Thoughts: i built 6 of these to try(im a oem system builder)and i had problems with memory i checked the compatability sheet and used patriot memory listed and had bluescreen problems on windows install. Switched to kingston ram and had no problems so now what do i do with all this ram . Send it back and get charged restocking fee and pay shipping. (msi you need to test better and if it dont work dont list it in the instructins as approved ram) all the patriot ram could not of been bad i used it in intel boards and it worked fine. Im switching back to intel boards i pay more but never have problems

2 out of 5 eggsMSI if you want less features

Pros: Performs basic functions, fit well with my color scheme, one of the few sub ~80 s1156 motherboards.

Cons: MSI support is non existant it would seem, been on their forums trying to correct some Bios settings which are at this time, read only. Memory is advertised being able to run 1600OC, mine hit 1066 on auto detect. Changed the timing and was only able to get it to 1333, unable to change this unless you change the blck on the CPU. Problem is, blck is not selectable. Update the bios, disabled EIST and C state.. no dice. Attempted to use their software to perform this, locked up my system. At a loss so far, forums are a waste of time as all users will tell you to do is select the option. Didnt help with my question at all, not even related as it skips the option entirely. Bottom line, motherboard does not have the ability to run 1600 memory and doesnt have OC features. Sound quality is not the greatest, LAN seems skiddish, and boot sequence takes longer then most motherboards to complete.

Other Thoughts: -1 egg for no support help
-1 for false information of the board
-1 for wasting extra cash on memory/HSF that will do me no good as I could have used stock HSF and cheaper memory for this very basic board.

If you just want a motherboard that does the basic and is very small, I still would not suggest this board because if anything went wrong you probably wouldnt be able to get the support/help you needed. I will probably ask Newegg if something can be done with this issue such as a RMA due to the issues of mine not being correctable therefore misrepresenting the motherboard specifications. Otherwise, I will probably purchase an entirely new motherboard and not give this companies products another look over.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat board but a bit cramped...

Pros: The board does everything it's advertised to do... the price is right and Newegg ships incredibly fast.

Cons: The board is incredibly cramped... the PCI-E and PCI-E 2.0 slots are very close together. I have an nVidia GTX 460 PCI-E card and also have a PCI-E Soundblaster. The video card actually covers one of the PCI-E slots and when I put the Soundblaster in the remaining PCI-E slot it's so close to the video card that they actually touch towards the end of the Soundblaster. I wound up fabricating a small spacer to ensure there was enough room for the video card fan to have enough space to cool the card.

The video card also extends far enough back onto the board that it also makes accessing the SATA connections very difficult.

Other Thoughts: This is a great board for the price... just be aware you might have issues with obstructions, depending on what cards you install on the board.
