5 out of 5 eggsMSI Z87-G41 PC Mate LGA 1150

Pros: Excellent build quality. It seems like it'll last for quite a long time.
Component location is pretty nice, running cables was a breeze.
Very cool blue look to match my build.
Does everything it's supposed to do.

Cons: Haven't ran into any so far. It's been well worth the money, especially with the bundle of free 8gb hyperX ram.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: Did everything I wanted it to do.
Decent price for what it is.
MSI just always making some quality products.

Cons: none for me

Other Thoughts: I use this board for gaming and haven't experience any bottlenecks or problems because of this. Although i do not overclock so i would not know how this board handles overclocks

4 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: This is a great motherboard. I got it on sale for about $80 (I think). Now, since most of the other reviews have addressed everything major, I'll just clear some things up. First, I saw many complaints about the usb 3.0 header being too close to the atx power supply plug -in. While it is too close, it can be plugged in and it

Cons: Now, since most of the other reviews have addressed everything major, I'll just clear some things up. First, I saw many complaints about the usb 3.0 header being too close to the atx power supply plug -in. While it is too close, it can be plugged in and it works with a little bit of pushing. Lastly, the mobo is a bit too flexible for comfort, but my build went off without a hitch.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid Product

Pros: If you're somewhat experienced with building PC's this board is easy to install. MSI Live Update software allows online download and easy update of firmware. Connections are clearly labeled on the motherboard and relatively clear manual which would be helpful for first-time builders.

Cons: The only problem I had was that rebooting the computer would not completely shut down the server. However, after updating firmware this problem went away.

1 out of 5 eggsMSI Motherboard

Pros: Good price and Good performance.

Cons: This motherboard sucks, first of all, its BIOS version cannot allow user to restart when I finished installation; second, after I updated the BIOS version, it can restarts but after few restarts. It just gives a black screen and I cannot go into BIOS control panel, which makes me frustrating!!!! This motherboard is good with its price and performance but all those issues just make this motherboard useless. I hope they can fix it in the future.

Other Thoughts: I kinda lose my faith in MSI since I always believe they are one of my top brands !!

Btw, I changed to a ASUS motherboard afterward and it works perfectly !! So before you guys buy this motherboard DONT take the chance that it will works PERFECTLY !!!

4 out of 5 eggsA good mobo

Pros: - Cost
- The click BIOS is easy to navigate even for those who don't know what they are doing
- Has the 4 DIMM slots (while nothing special, it is still nice to have)
- The one i used for my first build is still going strong after a year and a half

Cons: - Only has 1 PCI-E slot, which makes it hard to upgrade
- It is a little bit tricky trying to get the interfaces into the back panel

Other Thoughts: It is a very good budget board, but only when it works. As said above, my first experience using this board was very good; however the second time I used this board I had 2 DOA's. The first one I sent back for a replacement, but after the second was DOA I had to ask for a refund and spring for a more expensive mobo. On the bright side, MSI tech support was very good, and they were the ones who helped me diagnose that the problem was in fact the mobo. As a side note: my rating is based on the mobo itself and not on my experiences with it.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks fine for me

Pros: This board has worked just fine for me. Some other people mentioned a problem with rebooting, but I've rebooted several times without incident since getting this board. Whatever the problem was there, it seems to have been fixed now.

Cons: Not *really* a con, but this board has only six screw holes to mount to the case, which leaves the right side somewhat unsupported. When I was plugging in the 24 pin power connector I was worried that the board would snap if I didn't support it from underneath.

1 out of 5 eggsWish it Lived up to its name

Pros: Loved the BIOS and "Military class components" Were a nice touch, even though I'm sure they wouldn't make a difference to me. Great deal for a board I thought had everything I wanted. Trouble is that it has a known issue causing it to fail to restart.

Cons: I can shut down from windows, but restart is non-existent. Not even from BIOS can you restart the computer, only a hard power off will shut this board off.
It is a known issue and nothing can be done about it. Pass on this board, maybe the newer model (z97) will have this bug worked out.

1 out of 5 eggswon't reboot

Pros: Got this on sale with Intel Core i5-4590 Haswell combo.

Cons: Board does not reboot. “The motherboard hangs on every reboot. No error message, no display, no beeps, just a blank monitor. Tried everything. Only way the motherboard boots is from a power off state. Every reboot from OS/Ctrl-Al-Del/reset button hangs the motherboard” this is from another reviewer and it’s exactly what happened to me. I’ve update the bios, remove and replaced different memory module, replaced the power supply, nothing worked. After doing extend search on the web and found that many users had same exact issues as many here in newegg review as well. End up RMA paid $15 to shipping.

Other Thoughts: This is my first MSI board, my previous sandy-bridge builds are all ASUS or Gigabyte. I was looking for a LGA 1150 board and only MSI H97 Guard-Pro was on sale, since H97 is the newest intel chipset, I reluctantly ordered to give MSI a second chance, it worked perfectly with I5-4590 haswell processor. So I assume this MSI Z87-G41 PC Mate has issues with certain processors or just maybe they have quality control issues.
