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.

Pros: -as in the title, works with haswell refresh CPUs out of the box

3 out of 5 eggsAverage

Pros: Over all the motherboard has been great. Nothing on the board wasn't working and it handles fairly high game settings

Cons: If you max out the settings on games like Battlefield 4 then the board will over heat and crash if you don't have an over the top cooling system.

Other Thoughts: My build parts
- Intel Core i5-4590 Haswell Quad-Core 3.3GHz
- HyperX Black 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600
-240gb sata 3 ssd
-corsair 110 liquid cpu cooler

1 out of 5 eggs2 bad RAM slots

Pros: ...

Cons: Comes with 2 dead RAM slots. Enjoy a suboptimal setup per the manufacturer.

If you put any RAM into slot 3 or 4 the computer will not boot up. Power comes on, fans come on, screen stays black and no bios or windows loads. Optimal RAM config is ram in slots 1 and 3 or 2 and 4 so you can't have the optimal. I can put both sticks in 1 and 2 and it will accept them but anything in 3 or 4 and it won't boot.

So now I'm supposed to unplug everything, take out my processor, fan, buy new thermal paste, AND I HAVE PAY TO HAVE IT SHIPPED BACK + the delay in doing all this junk. Thanks newegg and MSI. I'm not doing that junk nor am I waiting another week to get a replacement motherboard and have the computer up and running. I'll take the hit on having a suboptimal setup and 2 RAM slots that don't work and just warn you guys, learn from my mistake, there are plenty of other motherboards out there. Look for one that works properly.

Btw, do you know how much trouble it is to find out exactly why your computer won't start when you've put in everything properly? I did a lot of research and trouble shooting to find out those RAM slots were causing the problem. Seriously not even bios loads if you have RAM in either of those slots.

Other Thoughts: I spend a day trouble shooting and finding out what's wrong with the motherboard you sent me and I have to pay to have it shipped back?
