4 out of 5 eggsRebate is a joke

Pros: Card is fine

Cons: Rebate with MSI is a total lie. I can assure you, I did everything required, EXACTLY. Even typed out the letter so there was no chance of them not reading it. The UPC symbol was cut out perfectly. Address to them on envelope was even typed. I even joked with my dad that I should have made a You tube video of how perfect everything was including me dropping in the mailbox, because I knew I was never going to get a refund. (and yes, I waited 12 weeks)

3 out of 5 eggsGreat except the Ethernet port

Pros: Runs everything great has USB 3.0 looks awesome easy set up

Cons: Ethernet port was broke on arrival had to go buy a wifi card

Other Thoughts: Didn't want to take everything apart to send back but it's a disappointment because the Ethernet lag killer sounded awesome, heard asus sabertooths are much better but can't beat 100$ for mobo with all that this comes with. Would of been 5 eggs if it wasn't for the Ethernet

5 out of 5 eggsHas whats needed.

Pros: Its roomy for lots of stuff. It even looks cool. Has a lot of spots on top and bottom for fans. Some sata might get covered if your graphics card is huge.

Cons: A couple sata slots may get covered if you have a huge video card

2 out of 5 eggsDOA- you get what you pay for

Pros: Board has a nice design and will take almost any speed of RAM, overclocked or not. It's convenient to have onboard graphics, even though the Intel HD graphics aren't that great.

Cons: What I didn't understand about this board is that it has the ability to take RAM at almost any speed, yet 4 of the 6 SATA connectors are only SATA II. Board was DOA and took quite awhile to get replaced.

Other Thoughts: As title mentions, board was dead on arrival. Ordered this for a customer, who thought it would go great with the Thermaltake AMD series case they picked.

It's a great board when it works. With an i5-3570k and 4 x 4GB of 1866MHz RAM, it has a lot of potential.

Three eggs for experience when the new board worked, design, and functionality of the board. Knocked two eggs off for DOA and SATA II

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Intel Z77 Chipset supplies 2x 6Gbps ports, plus 4x 3Gbps ports.

1 out of 5 eggsCheap board, dead in one day.

Pros: -Cheap price.
-UEFI looked nice while it lasted.

Cons: -Dead in one day!
-Overclocking killed the UEFI.
-2 SATA cables in the box, really? Cheap!

Other Thoughts: BIOS would not hold the boot setting to begin with anytime you made changes. The poop hit the fan when I tried just a modest overclock with it, bumping up the voltage slowly (and the voltages are listed in +.02V intervals and you don't know exactly where you are!) but tried to run Intel's stress test would shut down in less than two mins. Bump up the voltage, same thing.

After a couple times of that, going into the UEFI setup, functions started disappearing! Rebooting with no changes or trying to reset the BIOS just made it worse. After the next reboot, it would not POST - no video, just fans and periodic click of the hard drive.

I swapped all the parts back to my non-UEFI Gigabyte P67A-UD4-B3 and system worked fine (except I have to reinstall Windows again).

MSI used to have great boards back when I had a Pentium 4. Clearly their quality has diminished. I'll try Asrock next or maybe just stick with Gigabyte.

I have already RMAed to Newegg for a refund and they are very helpful. Just sucks that I'm out return shipping for a defective product.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat mobo for the price

Pros: Actually bought instead of G45 on accident but it works great. Tons of features and great price. I was lucky enough to get it with the free 8 gigs of ram. Built it with a i5 3570k and msi gtx 760 and its a great system for the money. I was worried i had bought this mobo instead of the G45 because of the bad reviews but it is well made and have had 0 issues with it.

Cons: none
