5 out of 5 eggsSolid

Pros: Have had this board for over a year. Never had a problem with it. Bought it originally due to ratings and specs versus cost. Very happy I chose it. I have upgraded RAM on it (had several different kinds over time with no compatibility issues), gone through several drives (had every single SATA port used, along with nearly all USB ports, all at once), etc. and never a hiccup.

Cons: None.

4 out of 5 eggsSimple, cost-effective solution for micro-ATX builds

Pros: I bought this motherboard to put together a cheap micro-ATX build based off of a Sandy Bridge i5 2400S processor I had lying around. The small form factor is nice, limited capability (no USB 3.0/1, 2 DIMM slots) but great for a cheaper, older generation build. For $50 it is a great purchase.

There is also spacing between the two PCI slots so you can fit in larger graphics processing units which is definitely a nice touch.

Cons: Only two case fan controllers on the board, if you are going to have more than two fans besides your CPU's cooler, I would recommend buying a fan splitter.

Other Thoughts: Good purchase for $50. High quality component, limited functionality and a bit older generation but expected with this product. Overall I would recommend this if you are pairing with an Ivy-Bridge or older CPU.

5 out of 5 eggsMSI H61M-P31/W8 LGA 1155 Intel H61

Pros: Super cheap for a LGA 1155 microATX board
Two fan headers
MSI reliability

Cons: No USB 3
No Hdmi

Other Thoughts: This is a nice little board. I had a LGA 1155 i5 laying around and wanted build a mini pc to put behind a entertainment stand. This worked perfect for me. Slapped in 2-4gb sticks of ram, SSD for the boot drive and a 500gb Spinner for storage. It has descent BIOS. It doesn't have USB 3, not a huge deal for me, I mostly stream or copy over my network. It also doesn't have HDMI, also not a big deal for me, I threw in a 7770 card that had HDMI to hook to the TV. Depending on what you need, you really can't bet this for the price.

1 out of 5 eggsBuyer Beware: Poor Quality Control

Pros: Inexpensive.

Cons: -DIMM1 is malfunctioning, causing a reboot loop.
-Poor BIOS interface.
-Limited BIOS options with memory and CPU clock.
-BIOS recognizes X.M.P. timings of G.Skill F3-12800CL8D-8GBXM, and uses the 8-8-8-24-2T timings but still posts at 666 (1333) instead of 800 (1600).
-Poor quality control.
-Power, reset, HDD LED, speaker, and Power LED pinouts not in paper manual in box: working PC to view DVD or wireless device to search the internet for pin out required.
-Paper manual explains almost no BIOS settings.
-Online/DVD manual does not explain all BIOS settings.

Other Thoughts: I don't like giving negative reviews, nor do I give 1 egg reviews lightly or out of spite. This product truly deserves a 1 egg review.

I've verified that both of my RAM work in DIMM2 and that neither RAM work in DIMM1, confirming that the fault is in the motherboard.

Given the cost of shipping that I'm now going to have to pay to RMA this board, I'm going for a refund and will buy a better product. I should have spent more money on a better product in the first place. I should have paid more heed to the number of quality control issues other users have posted about.

How does a bad DIMM slot get past a most cursory QA check? How hard is it to add a piece of paper to the package to show pinouts? (Not that revising the manual is difficult either...)

3 out of 5 eggs....

Pros: All seems well for about a year.

Cons: A little over a year in i started having problems with my pc booting. So i took it all apart tested everyhting i could and found no problem with the psu,gpu,cpu, or mobo and put it all back together. Boom starts up fine(bit scarry). A couple months go by and i have the same problem only this time i cant get it to start at all, even after checking everything. Took it to the shop and they said that my psu was bad, ez fix. so i get the power boom turns on like a boss so freakin happy. A week passes NO START. sooo i go down to the shop, they test it and say its my gpu, ez (i had a duplicate) installed the gpu,comp works fine. (getting kinda frustrated at this point). about 3 days go by and AGAIN no start, i take it down to my shop needless to say i was angry at them, so they bring down king tech, He says that my mobo blew my (weekold) psu and gpu. Im stumped. Got the same mobo otw now, another psu and gpu. i supose 18 months is an ok life.

5 out of 5 eggsJust a headsup

Pros: Solid cheap board, been in use 24/7 for over a year with no problems.

Cons: Not worth docking an egg, but the SATA port layout is not video card friendly. It's pretty easy to tell by looking at the pic, but I did not notice before buying (my fault) I was only able to use 3 of the 4 ports when running a graphics card (an old HD 5850). Even the 3rd barely clears with a 90 degree sata cable.

Other Thoughts: This is a cheap budget board barely larger than an ITX mobo, I won't knock an egg off for a partially blocked sata port.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Perfect

Pros: It works with what I put together for it. No need to list all of the devices I put in to the Mother Board because I followed all of the vendor certified products with this Mother Board.

Cons: None it has been going strong for over a year.
