1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Price

Cons: Board came with PS/2 and HDMI ports that continuously cut in and out. Watched the num lock light on my keyboard flash on and off. Both the keyboard and monitor work great on my other rig. Would also not boot with a graphics card installed. I should probably RMA it, but since it has a 3 year warranty, I decided to just use a USB keyboard and DVI port, and Intel's built in graphics on the CPU instead... at least for the time being.

1 out of 5 eggsDo not update board!

Pros: Loaded windows fine, and auto overclocked my 4770k automatically to 4ghz without a hitch. And with the cooler master 120v all in one water cooler I was able to achieve 29c at load!

Cons: After doing the MSI live update it can potentially fry your processor. Doing the update turned off the fan header to the motherboard and therefore turned off the watercooling pump to my processor heat sync. Also, this created multiple shared gpu errors and posting problems. The update bricked the motherboard and rendered it incapable of resetting the bios. The motherboard shipped with a missing usb 3.0 processing chip too. To my horror the i7-4770k processor sat as a paper weight for 1.5 months until I got the replacement back.

Other Thoughts: Hopefully this board will be functional withOUT an update. I do NOT recommend using live updates or the MSI website. I usually only buy gigabyte boards for my amd builds (over 300 builds and counting) and have rarely had any problems, but since I decided to go with the i7 4770k I thought it would be ok to get a mil spec mobo from msi. Boy, was I wrong, I asked for a refund but it was not in my cards, so I will not update this board and if the sound needs a driver I am just going to buy a separate sound card and that goes for the video card as well. Good luck to you builders and stay away from this board.
