  • 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. 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.

2 out of 5 eggsLiked it overall, BUT...

Pros: Overall, I like this motherboard. There is a very interesting appearance for BIOS (personally, never seen anything like before). However…

Cons: Internal speaker (or buzzer) was not working from the very beginning, right from the start. And I couldn’t have expected that simple component to be defective. By the way, BIOS (v20.3) was doing some interesting stuff: at first, it was very easy to access when you tap delete etc, but then, after a while, (and it has been like less than a week since I build up my new rig) – it disappears. Every time I hit delete when my pc was booting up, I was being presented with the screen where I had a chance of either choosing to start up Windows 7 or to check the memory. And I couldn’t get into BIOS no matter at all… After going through the reviews that other customers left very carefully and thoroughly, I noticed that these problems have been mentioned already. And I asked Newegg to issue an RMA to replace the board right away. However…

Other Thoughts: I am afraid that my next motherboard will NOT be all right. I guess, it is based on the timeline that two other customers left their reviews. Both of them were at the end of May this year. So, I believe it is somehow related to the MSI’s production line around that time. There will be about 1 week left out of 30 days for the full refund that Newegg guarantees when I get the new board. And what if there are the same problems? What do you want me to do, MSI’s rep?

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Love the bios on this. First time I've seen one where you can navigate using the mouse.

Cons: Can't really think of any.

Other Thoughts: Its a motherboard and it works, plain and simple. Booted up first try with an AMD 8350 and 16gb ddr3 2133 with no problems. This is my second MSI board and I have no complaints.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat board/easy build

Pros: Fast, easy build. Booted first attempt. Plenty of room between the two 16-lane PCI-E slots. Good build quality, moderate overclocking is simple with Genie. My FX-8350 is running a cool, stable 4.3 GHz on full auto. I haven't bothered to go the manual route yet.

I needed a replacement board for my old one (ASUS) since it no longer held it's BIOS. This one fit the bill completely.

Cons: Still can't run 2 X Gigabyte R9-280x cards in crossfire. Just too much heat--even in my NZXT Phantom PHAN001BLK case with all optional fans possible.

Only 6 SATA ports total.

Other Thoughts: For those who want the latest bios, don't go to the regular MSI website for the board, it doesn't have the latest (that I could find).

Here is the latest--

5 out of 5 eggsSolid board.

Pros: Solid board. Nice and roomy. Good upgrade potential. Would recommend.

Cons: N/A with my level of tech knowledge.

Other Thoughts: No problems with my GTX 770 GPU and my FX-8350 CPU. First one died. Although. That is because my cat thought that the computer was thirsty and wanted some milkshake. Liquid dragged thermal past across board causing shot. Immediatly purchased another. *Side note* "Military Class" is a marketing term. Most electonics on military compentents are WAY outdated. --Source: Brother who is a Former-Marine Avionics Tech.

5 out of 5 eggsexcellent so far

Pros: Runs great no issues. Msi live update utility is awesome. Makes it super easy to find software for the system and motherboard. Have had no issues running the system 20 hours most days between me and my family for 4months now.

The layout is pretty good over all. Allows for plenty of air flow with everything plugged in.

Onboard motherboard chips run on average 10-15c cooler then my old msi board(socket am2+)

Over clocking software makes it almost to easy.

Cons: Not enough to knock an egg off, but the sata port locations suck. They are underneath the end of long video cards. Just an annoyance, if you pay attention and plug in sata wires before you plug in the video card, its not really much of an issue. Just be warned or you will do what I did, and plug in the video card and have to pull it right back out.

Other Thoughts: Hopefully stands the test of time as I don't upgrade parts that often, about every 5 years or so.

Military class components!

If you are thinking about getting this, just get it. I did a lot of research and found this to be, in my opinion, the best 2 card sli setup board out there. The pci-e slow spacing really helps the top video card not generate as much additional heat as it would otherwise.
