1 out of 5 eggsIt is not a matter of question, it is a matter of recall your product

Pros: It is no use calling you. You cannot come to my home each time I have the bios problem. After a month or so, I will have black screen. I have to take out the battery on the motherboard and reset the bios. I cannot even use the keyboard to get to the bios setting screen. I paid $99.99 for the motherboard. It is totally a rip off. What can I say? It is working at the moment I am writing this, but after a month or so, I will have black screen again and I have to reset the bios. Thank you MSI for keeping me busy.

1 out of 5 eggsA total disaster

Pros: I am a responsible reviewer. I have had this motherboard for one year and I have had numerous problems. I thought maybe I need to give it some time and tune it a little bit, but I was wrong. This motherboard keep dying on me! I am advanced in computer and I have brand new CPU, brand new memory sticks, everything is brand new. I have to set the bios very often because the motherboard keep dying on me. I know MSI rep. will reply and say sorry. Don't say sorry to me. It is already too late. Stop your production. Your company is not trustworthy on my books!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for the Price

Pros: I have it almost fully loaded with cards and other things. The MSI bios works well, I set it on the automatic O/C mode and never really tried anything else but it works well.

Cons: I wish it had another PCI 2.0 slot instead of a 1.0 so I could SLI two GT 660's together but I would probably have to get a newer MOB for that. It could use a few more USB 3.0 if I had to complain about something else.

Other Thoughts: Overall its a good MOB and I haven't had any problems with it, except I can't get a monitor to connect to it directly. Not really a problem for me since I just use my two GPU's for that anyways.

1 out of 5 eggsMSI downhill

Pros: It looks pretty.

Cons: I received the board, plugged everything in, turned it on and nothing happened. I debugged for a few hours, tried various devices all to no avail. I rearranged devices on the board at least four times, with various cabling. It was quite dead on arrival.

I ended up shipping it back, packing incorrectly, damaging it, and having to eat the cost, since NewEgg returned it damaged.

I bought an ASUS board, which worked the first time I plugged most of the same components in (I had to get new RAM for this board). This one worked, and continues to work to this day.

I used to love MSI, but I am going to avoid them for a while now.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

We apologize for the issues that you are having with this product.

Please take pictures of the damages that you have on the board, as well as the socket pins to usreview@msi.com, thank you.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Motherboard, but Buyer Beware!

Pros: The motherboard is good. It does online BIOS updates. It still works after a year.

Cons: Buyer beware if you want TPM. You can only buy the TPM chip from MSI online. No other store will sell it Other TPM chips will be incompatible with MSI. The TPM chip costs $13.00 and they charge $15.00 for ground shipping. I think this is outrageous.

Other Thoughts: My KVM Switch works, but the USB drive for MSI stopped recognizing it. It's annoying because I like have one keyboard and mouse for 2 PC's.
