4 out of 5 eggsGreat Value For Money

Pros: This board has a lot of high-end features without the high-end price tag. It was a snap to overclock my Pentium 3258 from 3.2 to 3.8ghz with the stock cooling fan.

Cons: Not Z97. Had I done my research I would have gotten a Z97 board so that it would be future-proofed for Broadwell processors coming out late in 2014/2015.

Other Thoughts: I was planning on assembling my own rig, but I didn't end up having to do so since in Taipei the vendors just build the system for you without any additional charge so I can't comment on any of the nitty gritty stuff, but the board works great and stays at a comfortable 40 degrees even with my mildly overclocked CPU. My next purchase will be a sealed liquid cooler so I can see how much more speed I can extract out of my components.

1 out of 5 eggsWorked good for awhile

Pros: Decent BIOS

Cons: PCI express burned out and burned out my cards. I got an RMA on the board, but it just burned out my new cards.

Cost me a LOT of money, not happy.

Other Thoughts: I know some people will think it's the power supply that burned out my stuff, but I replaced it with an ASROCK board and I've been good for 6 months so far.

2 out of 5 eggsNot that good.

Pros: It functions.

Cons: Really bad built quality, had problems inserting both the power cable and the USB 3.0 cable. I never manage to get the USB 3.0 cable all the way, due to fear of breaking the MOBO, it sounded like it was cracking. In addition, MSI's rebate department is just garbage, I never managed to get my 10 bucks rebate back, so I overpaid for a lousy motherboard.

Last MSI product ever!

1 out of 5 eggsWhere to start...

Pros: Fit in the case, installation was simple.

Cons: Alright, so this thing... the SATA ports that face up are horrible. Don't use them if you can help it. The first one came off almost immediately and the second was close behind. The design is awful if you have anything in the PCI slots. Southbridge is perfect for melting and the whole thing has a way of holding heat like no motherboard I've seen before. And all this in a case with 4 intakes and 5 exhaust.

Poor design and poor QC make for a poor choice.

Other Thoughts: I got this for my new 4670k. Decided to replace it three months later. Haven't had any problems since.

4 out of 5 eggsNeeds BIOS update for Haswell Refresh

Pros: Good, inexpensive motherboard. Plenty of PCI/PCI-E slots.

Cons: BIOS update is a pain.

Other Thoughts: This will boot up Haswell Refresh processors, but it won't reboot. There is a BIOS update from MSI for Haswell refresh processors. I spent several hours at it - tried M-Flash which just hangs and then tried DOS boot disk. which updated BIOS to the new version. It still didn't work.

What worked was restoring BIOS to factory settings, and then using M-Flash from USB drive to update both BIOS and ME.

Removing an egg for lack of proper instructions on BIOS update.

5 out of 5 eggsgood budget Z87 motherboard

Pros: Been running this since November 2014 with an i7-4770K overclocked to 4.2Ghz. The system is Windows 7 with an Intel SSD and 8G of budget memory. Totally stable build. I only had one BSOD early on when I was tinkering w/ overclock settings. Since then, not a single issue.

I bought this because it was the least expensive Z87 board and was one of the few with 2 PS2 ports.

Cons: The OC Genie feature doesn't work very well. If you plan to overclock, you'll need to understand how it's done and then play with the values manually

1 out of 5 eggsRMA'ed

Pros: Nice fan controls, many ports and 4 memory slots

Cons: The motherboard hangs on every reboot. No error message, no display, no beeps, just a blank monitor. Tried everything, including removing the BIOS battery. Only way the motherboard boots is from a power off state. Every reboot from OS/Ctrl-Al-Del/reset button hangs the motherboard.

Other Thoughts: Last MSI mobo for me.

1 out of 5 eggsMotherboard issues.

Pros: Cheap and durable

Cons: Could not detect my GPU and now the graphics card is just called VGA Standard Graphics Adapter. USB Ports can be unreliable sometimes.

Other Thoughts: Not a very good board for the price.

5 out of 5 eggsIts OK for just one nvidia card.

Pros: Does what a basic motherboard should do.
Has all the OC features it advertises with.

Cons: Crossfire
I wish i got the G45 version because im either stuck with one nvidia card or go crossfire.
Not a fan of AMD and much rather go with nvidia.

Other Thoughts: Its a great mobo if you need a basic one that could also do crossfire.
Really wish i got the SLI ready one.
