  • newegg Military Class The perfect trinity of quality, stability and efficiency all exist at one mainboard to meet end user expectations. The MSI Military Class series products provide the long lifespan, unparalleled quality, extreme performance and ultimate efficiency. Insisting on the best stability, MSI utilizes Hi-c CAPs on Military Class series. Made of the rare element Tantalum, often used on space shuttles and satellites, which sustains very high temperatures and shows an amazingly high electrical conductivity. Compared to the traditional ferrite choke, the Icy Choke provides higher power efficiency and a more stable power supply, which also fulfills power users need for idealized environment with turbo speed and low operating temperatures. For providing the highest quality products, Solid CAPs are built in the entire Military Class series. This not only makes bursting capacitors a non-issue but also ensures a dramatically extended lifetime and ultra-low ESR.
  • newegg OC Genie II – Overclock & Unlock CPU Core in 1 Second OC Genie II, the most powerful and easy overclocking technology is implemented on MSI's AMD 9-Series mainboards.

  • newegg USB 3.0 & SATA III Compared to the 480Mbps provided by traditional USB 2.0, the all-new USB 3.0's 5Gb/s offers 10 times the transfer bandwidth, so transferring a Blu-ray movie takes less than one minute. MSI also has implemented a front panel USB 3.0 port, making the use of an external USB 3.0 device even more convenient. SATA 6Gb/s provides double the bandwidth of traditional SATA 3Gb/s, and increases the data transfer rate between your mainboard and internal storage devices, such as 7200RPM HDDs, 10000RPM HDDs and SSDs. It’s also the current trend for upcoming high-speed internal storage devices to break the existing bottleneck of a PC’s performance.

5 out of 5 eggsWorking great!

Pros: still works! running everything like a boss!

Cons: box says it supports fx prossesors.. threw my fx-6350 in thinking nothing of it, after testing my power supply and testing connectors due to a no post I narrowed it down to a needed bios update (DOES NOT SUPPORT VISHERA OUT OF BOX)

Other Thoughts: Teamed up with corsiar h100i, fx-6350, mushkin silverline, nvidia gtx480, overclocking after a thermal paste burn in (expected 5ghz)

4 out of 5 eggsWish I would have known

Pros: Solid board, booted right up, MSI has never failed me before. BIOS works as suspected, OC is fine, not sure what other reviews were upset about the OC, I have my FX-8350 at 4.8 just fine.

Cons: RAM speed. Like others have mentioned, does not detect higher than 1333. Also, room for pci is a bit narrow, wanted the extra pcie x1 slot for a USB3.0 header upgrade later (since not on board) but they wont fit the cards because a bridge chip heatsink is in the way. That plus the 6 SATA connectors being flimsy, and one not working right, loses an egg for this board.

4 out of 5 eggsBetter then expectations

Pros: Very stable, built in Over Clock Genie makes it stupid simple to overclock the system, no over heating issues. Supports everything seamlessly

Cons: Original setup was complicated on a hard drive already containing an OS, though I'm sure with a fresh set up there wouldn't have been any issues.

3 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

Pros: Ease of use and quality build/workmanship is what draws me back to MSI every time. I also like the blue/black layout as it matched what I wanted in terms of visual appearance. The board is evenly spaced out and I had no issues in making any connections or getting all four DIMMS filled. OC Genie II makes overclocking simple.

Cons: No PCI 3.0 connection on the motherboard. I had to use a 3.0/2.0 cable converter in order to get the front case 3.0 ports to even work and not at their actual speed. When filling your RAM slots, do so carefully since the system will only read it as DDR3 1333 and not the actual rated speed. In a high end board, I shouldn't have to manually adjust my timings unless I want to push them. If I buy 1600, it should SEE it as 1600 no matter how many DIMMs are filled.

Other Thoughts: If I could return it and get a better board without having to pay a penalty since it does work, I would. Sadly to say, even though I'm happy with my build and the board in general, this is the first time that I've been truly disappointed by MSI. Looks like I may have to go with another vendor for my next build.

5 out of 5 eggsNot be disappointed

Pros: The price wasn't to bad, comes with 2 USB 3.0, plenty of USB 2.0, supports sli and crossfire, supports up to 32gb ram, and msi is a trusted name. I usually buy gigabyte boards but decided to go with msi when I had to ram a board from a previous build, they sent me a new one after I already bought a gigabyte board. I gave the msi board to my dad for his build and loved it. So when I decided to upgrade from a 6 core to an 8 core fx I went msi and never looked back.

Cons: I have one complaint and its not enough to deduct an egg or two, should have had a USB 3.0 header on board.

Other Thoughts: None

5 out of 5 eggsRunning well so far.

Pros: I've been running this in my new build since summer 2012 and this board has worked out well for me, the pci16x slots are far enough apart for my 2 6950s to breath properly and the power inputs are in good locations so I don't have cables everywhere

Cons: would have liked the 2nd pci16x to be true 16x instead of 8x. However it doesn't really affect my crossfire setup. for the price I'm still happy.

Other Thoughts: It's been running strong so far, hope this review doesn't curse me lol.

3 out of 5 eggsworked great for 34 days

Pros: My wife was Super Happy for 34 days then it died like someone pulled the plug. Should have got the extended on the board i'm guessing.

Cons: even jelly beans have lemons.

Other Thoughts: Got shoprunner (5 eggs if there was a place to put them) so did save on my 2 builds and addons.
