1 out of 5 eggsMotherboard died after less than 8 Months!

Pros: Inexpensive board. Has HDMI & USB 3.0.

Cons: After less than 8 months of use my PC would no longer POST. After swapping every part except for the CPU & Motherboard I went ahead and purchased another Mobo and installed my CPU with all of the existing essential parts (CPU, Power Supply & RAM) and guess what? POST good, boots perfeclty! My PC had been acting really weird in the weeks leading up to the mobo completely dying. Now I have to go through the RMA process with MSI. It's already started off poorly when trying to register the mobo their system says the serial # is invalid.

Other Thoughts: I had good luck with MSI parts in the past so that's why I stuck with them. But I guess I just got a bad one.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for HTPC

Pros: Low cost, easy OC, HDMI, USB 3.0, SATA 6gb, mATX, IG, 8-channel audio. Includes SATA 6gb cables.

Cons: Limited support for higher RAM speeds. Supplied documentation is skimpy. Some cryptic BIOS settings.

Other Thoughts: Paired with a G3258 - runs great. BIOS flash to latest was smooth. Download the manual to connect pin headers (front panel, USB 2.0, audio). Overclocks stably to 4.2GHz with stock cooler. Plays 40mbps video butter-smooth.

3 out of 5 eggsWorked well but....

Pros: Runs great, booted right up after first try

Cons: Bios wasn't great for the revised LGA 1150 chips which causes a reboot issue.

Other Thoughts: I tried flashing the Bios update to fix the reboot issue and now it takes a minute from pushing power button to loading bios and then booting windows.
This would be much better if I didn't have the reboot issue and the problem after flashing the bios. It almost made me think I killed the motherboard.
BTW after flashing the bios I still have the reboot problem.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid product!

Pros: - BIOS is user friendly and has cool features
- Current features (usb 3, sata 6gb, HDMI, etc.)
- Priced competitively

Cons: - Instructions are meh.. (then again, most instructions are)
- Adding a pci slot would be nice (not a con, just a wish)

Other Thoughts: This is a really solid, stable mobo for a budget build. While it's always nice to have more of the features (USB 3, sata 6gb), MSI gives you an adequate amount to be priced competitively. I'm using this with an i3-4360, Windows 8.1, 2 HDDs, optical and has been running great.

FYI- I had an issue where the board wasn't rebooting after Windows restarted (the power would stay on but no video signal). I learned that you'll need to update the BIOS and Intel ME firmware- which you can do via USB in the BIOS. Not a negative on MSI, just something to be aware.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA - Hoping for a fast RMA process

Pros: I like the layout of the board. Fits in the Aspire Apevia MicroATX desktop computer cases (I have 3).

Cons: DOA. Tested it in a couple of running cases and power supplies it's deader then a doorknob.

Other Thoughts: I've used MSI motherboards many times in the past so I wasn't surprised to get a bad one. They either work or they don't.

Biggest hassle is testing to prove it's bad then the wait for a replacement board as you go through the RMA process.

1 out of 5 eggsVery disappointed with the mb

Pros: Price is really low
HDMI port

Cons: 1. Windows 7 could not be installed thru AHCI mode, however I was able to install the windows with IDE mode. As long as, you do not use AHCI mode, you would not have any problems installing the windows. Nevertheless, you will definitely lose its best performance by using IDE mode.

2. I was only able to set the highest memory speed at 1400. I am not sure if there is a specific method to set the memory clock diligently on BIOS MENU, but the other MB that I have used have an easy access to control memory clock.

3. No USB 3.0 extend header

Other Thoughts: First experience with MSI MB, but I am too disappointed. I think I should've stick with Asrock previously I have always purchased

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Budget i5 Motherboard

Pros: *Excellent BIOS - UEFI
*Good Software Bundle
*Excellent expansion options
*HDMI built in! Love that! Great for HTPC builds

Cons: *None so far - Paired with an i5 & 16GB of ram its been rock solid.

Other Thoughts: Used this build for a customer who does mostly video editing. It's been a great little budget performer with ample room to move up in the world. Good solid budget choice.
