5 out of 5 eggsI love this thing!

Pros: I bought this thing in November 2011. I was in love with it then and am still in love with it now. My system was more Frankenstein-ed than built purposefully and thoughtfully. Being perpetually cash-strapped and in graduate school, I waited and bought all of my parts when they were on fire-sale: a $180 computer case for $39.99 from a small company going out of business, a processor and CPU cooler for 70% off when AMD and Intel rolled out their new chips, a $350 power supply for $125 when the new model came out, etc. Because of this, my parts had a wide range of dates and weird compatibility issues. The most prominent one was one hard drive and my CD drive using an IDE ribbon cable while my other two hard drives were SATA cables. This is one of the few hybrid motherboards with a lot of room for expansion that supported both IDE and SATA cables, which was very hard to find.

Aside from that, it's been very reliable and continues to be robust. I am updating from Windows XP to Windows 7 this fall and am adding more RAM when Cyber Monday comes around. I am not having any problems finding compatible parts and I expect to keep this motherboard for at least another 3 years, hopefully 5 before upgrading. This is a quality product and I am very, very pleased with it.

Cons: Not really a con but the weird thing was that the picture showed the motherboard using red plastic but mine is blue. All the slots and ports are in the same places but I thought they had shipped me the wrong product at first. I also got it at a steep discount because I bought it refurbished instead of new but I'm not sure how that information helps anyone reading this review.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent Board -Better ones out there-

Pros: After bricking a Biostar BIOS after a bad flash, I bought this board as it was in stock at a local PC shop and cheap. Setup was painless and everything swapped over from the Biostar without issues.

-Has plenty of USB headers, (3 of which are 2.0)
-4 DIMM for a MAX of 16gb (they've updated the specs to include 1600 ("OC") as the box only listed 1333 as max speed. Currently updating from 2x2gb 1066 sticks to 4x4gb 1600 sticks. They should be here in a day so we'll see if can actually run them or not, otherwise will have to lower the RAM speed to 1333 when I OC the CPU again which will actually be a "Con" but probably needed for stability anyways.
-BIOS has a TON of features allowing you to Over Clock the CPU, under/over clock RAM,adjust timing, voltages, security features to prevent/block accidental/malicious BIOS flashing, etc.
-Can save (think it's 5 save slots?) more than one Over Clock profile which is EXTREMELY helpful when OC'ing as you can save an OC (as well as name the save which is very nice), start PC, run it, if it hangs, reboot, go back to a previous OC save, etc. It also gives the option to revert to another save (like default setting) in case of start-up trouble, then you can easily reapply the OC after fixing (read about RAM in Other Thoughts).
-BIOS is easy to flash, but they haven't updated in awhile (read Cons)

Cons: -Can only run 1 video card, so no SLI here.
-Video cards with big fan cases crowd the area and make getting the BIOS battery out near impossible with a GTX 550Ti (or bigger), forcing removal of video card to pull/replace battery, as well as interfering with access to the OC switch, jumper, etc.
-Only handles a MAX of 16gb RAM (should be plenty for most, but mhz is limited to 1333 with a possibility of 1600 but not holding my breath).
-The 4 DIMMS are too close together so might be an issue with wider heat dissipation covers, and possibly heat issues with the RAM if they are all touching. Recommend a tower case that has top mount puller fan to keep airflow constant over them.
-BIOS has NOT been updated to include the newer AMD FX chips yet, so doubt the newer 4, 6, & 8 core FX chips stuff will work properly (if at all) as it's not in the list on MSI site. Only officially supports 6 core Phenoms and lesser chips. http://www.msi.com/product/mb/760GM-P35.html#/?div=CPUSupport
-CPU (Max Support) Phenom II
-The Easy OC "Switches" did NOT provide a stable OC, so I had to OC manually within the BIOS.
-The OC'ing capability of the actual board isn't the greatest. (Read Other Thoughts)
-HyperTransport 3.0 supporting speed "up to" 2.6GHz

Other Thoughts: Running an AMD Athlon II X2 250 with liquid cooling, I was able to go from 3.0Ghz to 3.66Ghz (fully stable) with this board after MANY hours of fine tuning. When I had the pretty basic Biostar board (forget the model- it was a $50 board) it had everything that's attached to this board (only mobo was changed) I was able to OC the same chip to 3.72Ghz (fully stable), so this is why I don't think it's OC ability is the greatest. Had the board for about a year now. Only trouble I've had was a random freezing that occurred once in awhile that I *thought* was due to the OC or possible software conflict, but it turned out one of the sticks of RAM was going bad. One night while letting it download a file while I was away, it froze up. The screen was showing a frozen shot of the desk top. I shut it down, restarted, fans all came on, but no start up screen nor hard drive light/activity. Thought it was dead in the water. Pulled a stick of a RAM, restarted, and was greeted with the failed OC screen. Chose the "Default Settings" and it's been running ever since. This is why I like the "saves" in the BIOS as the old OC settings can be reverted to once the new sticks of RAM are installed, and I hopefully won't have to spend too much time tweaking the old 3.66Ghz save, or one of the other fully stable old saves to avoid starting from scratch. If you are looking for an inexpensive and seemingly reliable, low fuss board with a lot of BIOS options, you *can* get this board , but I'd recommend finding an uprated version of this with the ability to run 2 video cards and the newer AMD FX chips if you are serious about gaming but don't want to spend the money on the Intel stuff and want room to expand/upgrade at a later time.

2 out of 5 eggsDon't waste your money

Pros: It seems like a good motherboard at first, but nothing too special.

Cons: After a couple months of use, half the USB ports and the ethernet port went out. I'm currently using an ethernet cad I salvaged from an old computer, but it works just as good as the integrated one. If you're like me and you just want to build a cheap computer, don't waste your time and money, just buy a better motherboard. It will only raise your budget $20-$50

Other Thoughts: This is technically a con, but it's on the specs. The integrated graphics card is not good. Also, this may be just because I didn't have good enough specs, but whenever I used the quick-overclock switch, my computer would crash within 30 minutes of use.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice!

Pros: The board booted up on the first time. Very easy to install the processor, ram, and, graphics card. The core unlocker isn't totally necessary but i'd imagine that it would be helpful in some situations. Definately a good board, i'd recommend it to anyone.

Cons: None so far, i dont expect any either

5 out of 5 eggsWORKS LIKE A CHAMP

Pros: Booted first try, performance seems great, dont be put off by the noobies in the comments who clearly dont know how to seat motherboards properly. and fry it almost instantly.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I do kinda wish they wouldnt go with the stacked SATA connections but eh, saving room I guess.

1 out of 5 eggsFrom Bad to Worst !!!

Pros: Nice layout .

Cons: No luck with this board at all. First one was DOA, RMA.
Second one dead after 10 min. Retrun for refund.
No more MSI boards for me.

Other Thoughts: would stay away from this one. Very poor workmanship.
MSI must not test boards. Rating would not be 1 egg if I could give it 0.

4 out of 5 eggsOnly 1 system fan slot?

Pros: Good card for everything I need. However, my case shipped with two system fans and I only see one system fan slot on this motherboard. I plugged in the rear fan because I figured it would be more important, but I would love it if I could plug both in.

Cons: Besides apparently only having one system fan slot, nothing.
