4 out of 5 eggsGreat board, but needs some updating

Pros: Great board. We have several that have never caused us any issues.

Cons: The recent releases have had an old BIOS V1.8 instead of V1.9, This causes the system to not want to reboot or shutdown when requested by Windows. Spent many hours on tech support with MSI until finally they suggested reflashing the BIOS. That solved the issue. Sad that they would release a board with a bad BIOS on it.

5 out of 5 eggsAbsolutely Loving It

Pros: It has been able to handle everything I throw at it. I am currently running it with an i7-4770k and 8 gb of Corsair RAM. First of all, the design is awesome and fits my build to a T. The dragon heatsinks are so cool, at first, I didn't know the top and left heatsinks were dragon shaped, but they are! A very pleasant surprise! One thing that stands out is the onboard audio, this is just amazing. The amp powers any headset I want to use, even audiophile level. The multi-BIOS is also among my favorite features, next to the power, reset, and OC Genie buttons. The OC Genie comes with some bad though, but I'll explain that later. The debug LEDs are also quite nice to have for both an external test build and internal use. Finally, the USB 3.0 ports are very nice and give it that level of new tech that is quite necessary, if only I had devices that support USB 3.0!

Cons: The BIOS indicator LED. It's either blue and (I THINK) green depending on which BIOS you have enabled, and doesn't fit with my build, but this is nowhere near knocking off an egg. The only other con is the OC Genie, while I was excited to see how it handled my i7, it gave me and unstable OC, and resulted in a couple bluescreens during testing. This was disappointing, but it could just as easily be my processor itself, and not the OC Genie system, again, not even close to worth an egg off.

Other Thoughts: I am nowhere near disappointed in this motherboard. I am loving it's design and every other feature of it. I highly recommend this, however, I do know there is a new Z97 version out that could beat it.

1 out of 5 eggsMotherboard broke on dry run

Pros: None

Cons: Motherboard began smoking on dry run with just the PSU, graphics card cpu and memory plugged in. Right below the dragon symbol in between it and the board a small flame came up. I do not suggest anyone purchase this board and am just hopeful it did not destroy any of my other components.

5 out of 5 eggsReally Really Great

Pros: Runs stable as hell, OC genie works flawless if you don't want to get in depth with overclocking. Looks beautiful and includes useful features like a bios button and oc genie button on the board. Has USB 3.0 on it as well which works perfectly. Fits in my Haf 922 case perfectly.

Running a i5-4670k @ 4.5GHZ with 1.32V perfectly stable, I havn't tried going any higher

Cons: Sata slots are slightly awkward to use once it is in a case if you are using a mid tower.

5 out of 5 eggsNo Beep

Pros: I like the board overall. I got 1 in Feb. and 1 May 20.

Cons: No Beep. Neither of the machines beep when they start. The speakers are conneted to JFP2 with the supplied Blocks and without them. I turned them upside down when using without the Blocks. But they just don't Beep. I thought it odd the first one did't Beep, but now the second board won't Beep either, leads me to believe this is like the GM ignition coverup. MSI HAS to know this problem exists with this board. I am using the supplied speakers that came stock with both boards.

Other Thoughts: No Beeps

4 out of 5 eggsRMA'd once but second time is a charm.

Pros: Has alot of sata connectors, and a msata connector. Has a power button on the board and automatic overclock button (did not try it yet). Works with 4th gen intel i series cpus.

Cons: RMA'd the first motherboard with the cpu. Checked all the pins, and there was nothing missing. Encountered a D0 error when first bootup where the bios did not post.

Other Thoughts: The manual says that you can put dual channel ram in the 2,4 slot, but it really doesn't matter if you put it in 1,3 slot either.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very fast, easy to configure, stable, great audio. The board looks great. Drivers provided by MSI seem very stable. UEFI is attractive, intuitive, and easy to navigate. Much better than my previous Asus.

Cons: The owners manual does not provide enough detail on how to configure the BIOS settings. It has more than a dozen pages on overclocking settings, but nothing on how to configure other settings, such as enabling UEFI in Windows 8.

Other Thoughts: I concur with the reviews at tech websites. This board provides a lot of features for the money, looks great, and is overall a great mid-level board.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Seems to be a good board. It gets the job done and it seems to have a decent amount of features. I haven't tried updating the bios but I'm not sure I want to. The msi update utility is really grey to use too.

Cons: None
