3 out of 5 eggsAnnoying Problem, Even After Replacement

Pros: Cheap Z77 M-ITX Board
Good Featureset
Pretty UEFI

Cons: Somewhat weak WiFi
Defective USB
Defective Audio

Other Thoughts: So I bought this board, and I experienced the WiFi disconnecting, and required manually resetting the adapter to make it work again. There was also a noticeable static in the front audio.

I sent it for a replacement ($10 shipping, there goes my MIR savings), and the board I received so far has a stable WiFi and less static on the front audio. However, there's another problem.

A random USB device will stop working for 2-3 seconds. It happens relatively often. My mouse will stop, I would hear the "device unplugged" chime from windows, and then it'd start working again after 3 seconds. This can be the difference between living and dieing in a game. If I send it in for another replacement, I would have been able to buy a better Gigabyte board from the start.

Perhaps that's what I should've done. This board has functioned, but always had a problem here or a problem there that caused a great annoyance.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat board, still a good option

Pros: Great little board, overclocks just like the ATX and mATX version of the MSI Z77 board. I cross graded from a Z77A-GD65 Gaming. I was sent a BitFenix Phenom case for review and allowed to keep it. So, All the components in the Gaming motherboard transferred right over; CPU, memory, H100i cooler. I literally didn't do anything to the OS on the SSD that was running off the Z77A-GD65. Just attached it to SATA1 port and everything booted up.

Cons: With everything plugged in the board is crazy crowded but that's the nature of mini-ITX.

Other Thoughts: I would have purchased a Z87 board but this board allowed me to keep my 3570K and GSkill memory. The 3570K is still a solid processor and the comparative Haswell processor only gains about 5%.

5 out of 5 eggs  works great

Pros: Easy set up. Great BIOS.

Cons: Lack of more fan headers, but I can't take away an egg. That's the norm for mini itx.

Other Thoughts: Second MSI mobo. Both have been great.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: worked perfect out of the box. the little details like a plug for the front panel connections are appreciated when working in a small ITX box. I cant comment on the WIFI or Bluetooth because I dont need to use them right now. Memory set itself to DDR3 2400 with XMP and it Overclocked itself to 4.2 ghz without any input from me. no errors after 12 hours of prime95. Could it be this easy?

Cons: The MSI software to change the board settings in windows isn't very good. Its slow to respond, and you have to reboot every time you make a change. If I have to reboot, whats the point of it?

Other Thoughts: I am super happy with this board. I built a beast of a machine that is barely bigger than a toaster.

4 out of 5 eggsh77n wifi

Pros: Nice board,good audio,intel wifi,dual hdmi,dvi.

Other Thoughts: It is a good board after all,very happy!

5 out of 5 eggs11 months of perfect service

Pros: Everything is built in. Using a 2500K running at 4.2 all the time and an old 5830 ATI card. Everything functions as it should. Plays games great. Put in a Bit Fenix Prodigy and its a perfect match.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: At this low price its a steal

5 out of 5 eggsGreat ITX Build

Pros: Has mSATA slot on top of board making it easy to install the mSATA card after its in a very small box.

Z77 chipset so you get USB 3.0, along with all the other great options that go with a Z77 as well a WI-FI and Bluetooth.

Rebates are always a nice bonus o a board that you are going to buy regardless of price

Cons: mSATA is rated a 3 GB vice 6 GB but you never noticed the lower speed when paired with a Plextor M5M PX-256M5M mSATA 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD).

Other Thoughts: Bought a second board after I built an i7 with an mSATA drive and now I am waiting for the mSATA to go on sale again so I can afford another Plextor M5M PX-256M5M mSATA 256GB.

Hope the holiday specials, will see a huge cut in CPU prices and I can pickup another i7 with a huge discount and a holiday promotion like I did when I bought components for the last build.

1 out of 5 eggsRebate Fraud.. another one bites the dust.

Pros: not DOA, free 8gb ram... boots up... uh.. thats it so far....

Cons: MSI has "lost" my rebate, second time using them second time this has happened, I guess shame on me. there will not be a third time.

I use to copy all my rebates like everyone else, but since no other company ever seems to lose my rebate I stopped doing it. There goes the pitfalls of this scenario, no proof no claim. GG.

Will probably never purchase from MSI or any other product that needs a rebate and uses 4myrebate as a rebate proc.

Other Thoughts: although it wasn't DOA

wifi does not work properly cuts on and off, and one dimm slot doesn't work. However despite the half working motherboard it does not hamper my personal use for this board (home nas server). I couldn't even RMA to newegg, rebate was sent out.

surprise surprise when I bought an extra 8gb dimm and it didn't work.

All this coupled with the negative rebate experience has not been great, buy hey I got free ram.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

We apologize for the issues that you are having with your postal service.
If you can provide all of the rebate materials to us at and we will see if we can do anything about it or not, thank you.

Best Regards,
