    4 out of 5 eggsGood Motherboard!

    Pros: easy bios, simple to setup, gets the job done.
    I had a gigabyte z87-ud3h atx mobo that crashed frequently so I tried out msi. So far so good

    Cons: I'd wish there would be more fan headers but it's micro Atx so what would you expect

    5 out of 5 eggsGreat Board

    Pros: Great board and nice size! A lot of video inputs to select from if you do not have a graphics card.
    Nice price if your working on a budget! Small size and it will fit in pretty much any case.

    Cons: None as of yet!

    Other Thoughts: This is a good board on the low budget side if you need a nice board. If you use Windows 7 (64) you will need to update the audio drivers to get the on board sound to work so that was no issue at all.

    5 out of 5 eggsVery nice!

    Pros: I really like this board. It uses 8 hex standoffs to mount so there's very little chance the board will flex while plugging and unplugging things.

    The BIOS was logically arranged and easy to navigate. This board has more USB headers than its closest competitor from ASUS. The USB 3.0 header fits perfectly if your case is of sufficient quality.

    I ran a 750ti and GTX650, both of which use a high amount of PCI-E board power and no external hookup, and the board supplied them with electricity just fine. Very impressive!

    Cons: No cooling on the VRMs but also not much in the way of overclocking features with B85 so that's not the end of the world.

    I had about 1 board out of the 18 or so I got have a problem with its USB ports. They seem all severely damaged. I did use a not so respectible brand of internal card reader that I found out later has known problems with Haswell chipsets but I didn't expect it to damage all front and read USB ports. It may be the case shorting out as well. Considering how much better this board is than the E33 and P45 editions, I still strongly recommend it as the best option for most builds.

    it would have been nice if the board came with the LPT header parallel hookup cable but at least the CSM version does. It does have the serial port and LPT headers on the board though.

    Other Thoughts: Finally, someone with a brain configured the BIOS. While XMP isn't turned on by default, AHCI is turned on instead of IDE mode for all SATA ports.

    4 out of 5 eggs

    Pros: Lots of features. Great Price.

    Cons: The PCI-E 3.0 slot is situated very close to the ram. Most graphic cards will overhang and conflict with this. Thus limiting your selection of gfx cards for this board.

    Other Thoughts: USB 3.0 slot was at a tricky angle, double check that your case has room.

    5 out of 5 eggsGreat Motherboard!

    Pros: It works and has quite bit of features. Since i'm not overclocking or have a K version processor I don't need nothing fancy and this worked as expected. And well, its from MSI!

    Cons: None

    Other Thoughts: its nice and small

    5 out of 5 eggsMSI B85M G43

    Pros: Cost Effective, Optical Out, 32GB memory support,

    Cons: None

    Other Thoughts: This is a B85 chipset motherboard, know what your getting into before you buy. Think of "B" as basic or budget. Don't expect top notch RAID support, overclock support, vPro, or Intels SIPP. One processor, a couple drives this board works great. MSI offers a lot on this board in comparison to other B85s.
    FYI Guys that have expert level tech support..... Watch out for the MSI Super Raid. - here is what it is (Straight from MSI) - "Super RAID is MSI Software utility to set up Rapid Start, Smart Response and Smart Connect by just one click. It can tell each chipset SPEC and adjust its support function. Please be advised that Intel Smart Response is required to perform RAID " Therefore, H81/Q85/B85 do not have RAID support, but they still can support Rapid Start and Smart Connect.

    3 out of 5 eggsUSB 3.0 Port Bad Configuration. Wont work in all computer cases

    Pros: Bios set up and installation was a breeze.

    Cons: The USB3 connections are not upright, by this I mean you plug in from the side, I don’t want to modify my ATX Cooler Master Mid Tower case in order to use the USB 3.0 port.
    Case that I purchased: Cooler Master N300 – Mid Tower Computer Case with Meshed Front Panel

    I should have read the reviews before purchasing this product. It looks like there are several other complaints about this same issue. I have emailed MSI support to see if there is a connection piece that would change the direction of the input that that they could sell me so that I wont have to modify the case. Awaiting their response.

    Manufacturer Response:

    Dear Eric,

    As mentioned to you in the email, that your case is using an indented design for the base mounting plate therefore it blocks USB header unlike standard design which allows it to remain open and can be used.

    Here is the case comparison image:

    If you have any further questions about this issue, feel free to email us back at usreview@msi.com, thank you.

    Best Regards,

    4 out of 5 eggsGood board, tough SATA connections

    Pros: Overall board layout is good. Setup screen has many options to choose through, has enough expansion slots to connect just about anything to.

    Cons: Though I did notice in the photos the SATA and USB3 connections are not upright, by this I mean you plug in from the side, which meant I was forced to modify my micro atx case in order to use the ports. Perhaps this makes sense for some cases, but all of my micro ATX cases work much better with the standard SATA layout.
