2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very stable, after almost a full year I have had no restarts or shut down that I would contribute to the mobo. Seems to be good quality construction and materials. Good documentation. Easy to set up thanks to on board power button. EZ OC could be useful for some people.

Cons: On board audio has never worked. Didn't work on the first day and still doesn't work. Believe me I've tried everything. It just doesn't work. I've read around the net of people with the same problem. I was lucky that I had an old sound card that I could get around this problem, but not everyone will.

Unfortunately since this was kind of an emergency build, I could neither afford the cost of an RMA or go any longer without a PC while I waited for a replacement.

Other Thoughts: Shame I have to give it 2 stars since it has been incredibly stable. Perhaps the most stable mobo Ive ever owned. But shipping with non-functioning on-board audio is unacceptable.

5 out of 5 eggsUpdate: 1st Rec'ed Board DOA

Pros: This board, when you get a functional one (see other reviewers having difficulties as well) works well for its intended use in a budget socket 1155 build. 4 ram slots (32 GB max capacity), 4 + 2 Sata 2-3 ports, plenty of onboard USB 2.0 (with 2 rear USB 3.0 and, even though not mentioned, a USB 3.0 front panel header), plenty of fan headers for most cases, onboard power button (where don't have to short it) for board testing, & Crossfire support for the future...

Cons: 1. Return shipping for Newegg RMA. (Including fact RMA had to occur anyway. Yes, it happens, but the original 1 egg and this 5 egg properly average to a 3 now.)
2. Only a SLI connector included, instead of a Crossfire one. (If you use ATI graphics)
3. Only 2 SATA cables. (This is a budget board, expect this at this cost point.)
4. Cont.'ed placement of front audio in the worst place possible. (Lower left of board.)
5. As another review mentioned, due to this board being an older chipset (and not being updated by MSI), Ivy Bridge support is zip.

Other Thoughts: Conclusion: If you are building a budget gaming system, do not intend on leveraging the onboard graphics of the CPU for video editing, buy extra SATA cables (or don't need them), etc. AND are ok with the risk of a potential DOA board, this is a good buy with its feature set to build a socket 1155 system.

Specs:

Intel Core i3-2120
Crucial 2 x 4 GB DDR3 1333 CAS 7 (N82E16820148485)
Radeon 7770 1GB graphics (with MB support for CF)
WD Caviar Black 1TB (only decent warranty now)
Antec Earthwatts EA-650 Green
Antec 300
Win 7 Home Premium OEM

1 out of 5 eggsNo IvyBridge support

Pros: Looks cool.

Cons: The board would power on for 2 seconds that restart. MSI tech support said BIOS v4.1 was needed for IvyBridge processors. Since the board won’t turn on you can’t update the BIOS. They told me to contact my place of purchase for assistance. NewEgg can only offer a RMA, so I’m ditching this board for something better.

Other Thoughts: RMA process was easy; Thanks to NewEgg for that

1 out of 5 eggs1st Received Board DOA

Pros: Newegg RMA approval.

Cons: 1st received board did not work correctly out of the box.

When cardboard mounted with a known good PSU, 3 different brands/models of known good ram in multiple slots, a known good video card, and a new I3-2120 (no extra socket 1155 CPUs laying about), the board was locked in a 5 second "infinite power cycle loop."

Being RMA'ed through Newegg now.

Other Thoughts: Will update review following replacement board arrival.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsWorks GREAT!

Pros: - Bios are great
- Easy Overclocking
- Works amazing overall
- Amazing programs, utility etc for msi

Cons: NONE.

Other Thoughts: I love MSI mobos, because of the GUI bios, makes it so much easier. I've had no issues, whatsoever with Msi, I've already built 3 computers with Msi brand bios.

5 out of 5 eggsLove this board

Pros: Very impressed by this board. The construction feels very solid, and the setup couldn't have been easier.

Cons: That it's not free?

Other Thoughts: Running w/ an i5 2500k, and the overclock button worked beautifully. Not sure I really even want to go in and manually set anything.

1 out of 5 eggs2x RMA and still sucks

Pros: I got nothing.

Cons: Worked for about 3months fine. Then it failed. RMA and worked for 3days. Then it failed again. Will not be buying anymore MSI products after this.

Other Thoughts: RMA process is fast and relitively painless if your into that sort of thing.
