5 out of 5 eggsFirst time with MSI

Pros: First time buying and using an MSI product. For what it's worth the reviews seem to be true for this one.
I don't see any problems, and haven't had any major issues related to this mobo.

Cons: None yet.
Owned for about 6 months problem free.

5 out of 5 eggsDeserves a 5 star rating

Pros: Let me tell you. First of all, motherboards do not really effect your performance. Therefore it does what it does and I've had this one for about 6 months coming. The botten line is, if you need a high tech rig, even the most up to date cards will even fit in this one and perform. So buy it if your plan is to save money.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsIt's Good

Pros: I have been an IT Consultant for 20+ years. This board is for my personal workstation. It is replacing a previous MSI 790GX-65 as an upgrade. I really like MSI. Solidly built and reliable. I liken it to a reliable American Pickup Truck - dependable, not to many frills but works well. The price on the MSI line is pretty darn hard to beat. I am very impressed by the Graphical Interface that the BIOS has. For the money, hard to beat this product.

Cons: Not a lot of extra options but to be expected for the price. The system uses DDR3 ram instead of the new DDR4 ram which could be an issue for some. In my case, my previous board that board replaced used all DDR3 ram, so it was actually a plus for me because I could use my existing RAM and save some money.

1 out of 5 eggsPlease Help!

Pros: I honestly can't say I have any pros considering that I am struggling to figure out the video will simply not out put out right.

Cons: So I am building my pc for my first time ever, I was excited to build it, I was kinda struggling to get the pc to start up (note: not veiwing anything on a monitor, just startin up fans). Evenutally it starts, i am excited to get back from school to try continuing to finally finish my build. However when I thought I had hit the end the video will not display, and no, there is no beeping from the system. I would love someone to help me out with this preferibly someone who has fixed this before, because there are so many different reasons for video not displaying.

Manufacturer Response:

3. If you need further assistant, please feel free to contact our technical support department directly at 626.271.1004 from M to F, 6am to 6pm Pacific standard Time.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks well, first board was DOA

Pros: Has a good amount of SATA ports, decent layout. Looks nice.

Cons: First was DOA, needed to RMA. Newegg process for this was simple, as usual.

Other Thoughts: Would recommend, but be wary of DOAs because it seems to be more common with this board than others.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent Enough, No RAID Compatibility

Pros: I've had this board for 2 years and had zero problems. I've got plenty of room for more PCI devices as well as SATA drives and it has driven my modest gaming pc flawlessly

Cons: Despite the claims on the box and in the manuall, this board does not support RAID setups. When my 1TB HDD filled up, I consulted my manual before picking up another 1TB to ensure I could setup them up in RAID0. Much to my dismay and frustration, MSI technical support confirmed to me that this model does not have RAID capabilities.

Other Thoughts: The 3 out of 5 is purely for the misleading information in the manual and on the box concerning RAID functionality. It's really hard to overlook when a product claims to have a feature that it does not.

3 out of 5 eggsWasted my money

Pros: aesthetics, and fan headers.

Cons: After fiddling with the bios for a while I restarted my PC and to my surprise all the "optimizing" I was doing ended up slowing the clock on my CPU. As of now I am not using it anymore because my chip seemed to be slowing down.

another issue is the placement of the first and second sata ports. Why put the first and second vertical? it would have been such a better board if they were horizontal.
