    4 out of 5 eggsBest motherboard I could find for my criteria; great choice at a reasonable price!

    Pros: Great for multiple Solid State Drives; Have 2, could get a 3rd.

    Cons: RAM slots' clip near Graphics Card slot (PCIe) made installing Graphics card nerve-wracking (by a couple of millimeters; recommend adjusting design slightly)

    Other Thoughts: Surprised how much bang for my buck I got!

    5 out of 5 eggsGreat for first build

    Pros: Lots of features for a B85 board.
    OC genie
    Easy setup for BIOS

    Cons: Doesn't come in Red.

    Other Thoughts: MSI really hit a good note with this board. First time builders who want a more simple motherboard but still want to OC should look to this board.

    1 out of 5 eggsABSOLUTE GARBAGE!!!

    Pros: None

    Cons: - So it goes like this. I install the motherboard and am simply transferring a drive that works great and has Win 7 Pro and a ton of other things on it THAT I DON'T WANT TO REINSTALL AGAIN. I bought this motherboard for the video outputs. System goes into bios with no issue, usb mouse and keyboard work great. I make sure time/date is correct, usb configuration is correct, sata configuration........you get the idea. When I boot it into Windows.....NO USB PORTS.......NONE! Between MSI and Gigabyte I'm like you've got to be fricking kidding me! At least the stinking 2.0 ports on the gigabyte worked.

    So I call MSI support. Foreign dude is a tech wonder. Not. Final solution after confirming latest bios came installed and how long have I had this problem (stated it was brand new install at least 4 times) is simply reinstall Windows. Why? Because that's what it says on his little sheet in front of him. So apparently MSI is sending out motherboards that won't recognize any OS that is pre-installed on a working drive even though I've done it time and time again. So their solution is to have me wipe out my hard drive just to see if that's really the issue. And RMA it? No. Call newegg, pal.

    Other Thoughts: Will never spend another dime on this company.

    1 out of 5 eggsFalse advertisement - no OC capability for the package with the Pentium G3258

    Pros: It boots.

    Cons: Bought this because it was presented as an overclocking value package with the Pentium G5238, Motherboard high points include "OC Genie 4 and the intel XTU program". Turns out the boards appear to no longer permit any kind of overclocking despite the unlocked multiplier on the CPU. Complete bait and switch. I'll never purchase another MSI product after this and Newegg is full of @#$# as well for putting this pacakge on sale. Now I['m stuck with a seriously underperforming CPU that I would have spent a bit more on a proper Motherboard that works if these companies hadn't been so misleading and dishonest.

    Manufacturer Response:

    Dear George,

    3 out of 5 eggsUm lol I guess

    Pros: Very feature rich for the price, very well laid out construction. Rock solid when it works.

    Cons: Where do I begin, I had very infrequent USB issues, so I downloaded and installed a BIOS update from MSI that claimed to fix some issues with the USB controllers. This was about 6 months ago give or take. Guess what? My very infrequent issues became a much more annoying issue where my mouse and keyboard would start blinking and become unresponsive, my only choice would be to power it down and reboot, at which point it would work fine again for a while. Now after a year and a half of ownership, this board really really does not like to be completely powered down, when my PSU is switched off, or the machine is unplugged, it takes around 30 minutes before this thing will boot, tested with multiple PSUs. I suspect a bad cap, but since the board has encased capacitors I cannot even see the tops to find a swelling cap.

    Other Thoughts: The phone number listed here in the review section, and the general phone number, ring forever without anyone answering. Hey MSI, maybe you should buy an answering machine.

    Manufacturer Response:

    Dear Valued Customer,
    Based on the symptom you reported, we suggest you checking following steps below since many reasons can cause the situation like this ,
    1. For best result please ensure BIOS is up to date and do a clean install of window with update drivers.
    2. Check your other major hardware’s (memory, video card, CPU and power supply) to ensure that they are not the cause of the issue.
    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.

    2 out of 5 eggsPossible DOA

    Pros: Looks sturdy, everything plugs in nicely. Good price for what you get

    Cons: Unfortunately, when I plug it in and fire it up, I get a red light and no beeps out of the buzzer. I called in and was told that all of my parts are compatible, and eventually stripped everything off until it was only my CPU, and ram. When I take out my ram, I get red a red light and three long beeps, and when it's the CPU/Ram combo, I get a solid red light and no beeps.

    Other Thoughts: If I get a replacement, I'll gladly give it another review. Until then however, I just want people to know what can happen. (Will contact newegg tomorrow)

    Manufacturer Response:

    Dear Valued Customer,
    Based on the symptom you reported, we suggest you checking following steps below since many reasons can cause the situation like this ,
    1. Check and make sure that power are connected correctly and firmly (JPWR1 and JPRW2), clear cmos.
