4 out of 5 eggsAn okay mobo

Pros: 1. It's dirt cheap for running Haswell CPUs
2. It's dirt cheap for running Haswell Refresh CPUs

Cons: 1. The placement of the SATA ports could have been better. I have a large GPU (a PowerColor R9 290 PCS+) and the GPU blocks the 1st SATA port (which is the one of the only two SATA 3 ports on the board)

3. A large GPU will also block the CMOS battery and the CMOS jumper.

2. No USB 3.0 headers if you want to use a front panel I/O USB 3.0 ports

Other Thoughts: 1. Version 2 of this mobo is better designed, but unfortunately it wasn't available to purchase

2. This mobo is tiny for an mATX board. In fact it almost is an ITX board.

3. I don't know about others, but my mobo did not come with a CMOS jumper. It's not such a big deal because you can easily short the CMOS by pulling the battery, using a paper clip, or the USB jumpers, but I would have liked having a CMOS jumper.

4. I probably should have invested the extra $30-40 for a full-sized H97 ATX board, but I was on a hard budget and this was the only corner I could cut. This board still works fine though so that's why I gave it only 4 stars.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Mobo

Pros: - Cheap
- Works well for the price

Cons: - only 1 fan header

Other Thoughts: I bought this on sale and it is working fine ever since. Cheap motherboard that performs well and is compatible with the latest Haswell processors. I also have this mobo installed on another PC with an AMD processor and it also works well for more than a year now.

2 out of 5 eggsNot Impressed

Pros: Price was great and everything worked out of the box on both win and linux OS.

Cons: Replaced an expensive but faulty Gigabyte motherboard. Only worked for a month. RMA was a hassle, still waitng for my replacement motherboard. Service for canada was rather poor (rma number wasnt existant on website database).

Next time i will spend a bit more and go back to Asrock or Asus, at least they dont die that fast.

Other Thoughts: If it worked for more than a month could have been a good buy.
there is no PATA at all not a con but be aware of it.

5 out of 5 eggsNice upgrade.

Pros: Excellent upgrade from a budget standard; This motherboard offers the most basic needs for non-demanding usage.
Was using a ddr2 MB until I saw this deal, and decided to finally upgrade. It was worth it.
Booting was normal, and nothing seemed out of the ordinary. The Bios is nice too, as I will say that it's very simplistic to understand.
I would recommend buying it if you see a sale on it for a tight budget.

Cons: None.
(However, packaging with the motherboard at the bottom of the box with bubble-wrapping on the sides is a bit worrisome. This is just my anxiety of RMAs, but fortunately, it wasn't RMA so I can't complain.)

Other Thoughts: If you are planning to make a budget build for un-demanding casual gaming and browsing/streaming, I don't see a problem why not to get this motherboard.
Just have a decent Graphics Card along with a decent CPU, and you can play most up-to-date games at Medium-to-High without over-clocking. Only spend more money on a MB if you're planning to utilized more of those features and if you are planning to overclock it.
Despite being a low-end MB, it can still catch up with other overpriced MBs. Again, buy it if you're not planning to doing anything demanding to begin with.

1 out of 5 eggsWon't go MSI again!

Pros: Had everything I needed for 50$.

Cons: My buyer had to wait since this motherboard (MB) only gave me troubles.
No display, no usb ports working.
I ordered a second CPU to be sure the MB was the problem. It was.
I finally deciced to go with AsRock (more spending, less profit for me... but da**, the AsRock MB work at least and I was able to finish the build for my buyer).

Other Thoughts: Tried to refund with Newegg but shipping this MB back would have been a waste of money (high shipping cost). Decided to keep it while waiting for another CPU (the waiting killed my chance to refund with Newegg).
Total deception when I saw the same result with a brand new gpu.

Decided to contact MSI for a refund. Never got any reply.
Won't go MSI again!

5 out of 5 eggsGREAT value

Pros: What can i say, a 1150 socket for less than 35 dollars and you can overclock on it? sign me up. Purchased it to upgrade my gf's computer from the c2d days with a g3258 (was able to overclock it to 4.5ghz) and with the CM vortex plus am able to keep the vrms cool and everything has been running flawlessly.

Cons: Really the only con i have is msi's uefi bios is kind of annoying to go through, nothing to take any points away mind you, its just when you are trying to scroll through something on the right, the other options sometimes just pop up in the way

Other Thoughts: Its a great value board, and when i decide to build a htpc, ill probably grab another.

5 out of 5 eggsAn H81 MB that allows overclocking!!!!

Pros: An H81 MB that allows overclocking!!!! Running an i5- 4690K at 4.4ghz. Stable as a rock. Just changed multiplier. An H81 MB that allows overclocking!!!!

Cons: Can you really have a con on a $45.00 MB that can be had on sale for much less? If I had to nitpick it would be because the memory profiles only go up to DDR3 1600.

Other Thoughts: If you are between an I3 and an I5 due to your budget this MB can help you get the i5. There are 3 areas where I skimp when building my PC(if I have to). The case, memory brand name,and the MB. I don't skimp on PSU, CPU, GPU and CPU cooler in that order.

5 out of 5 eggsDecent board at very low price

Pros: Super cheap price.
Smaller size
Some basic overclocking options

Cons: There were some memory module compatibility issues.
Clunky uefi controls when overclocking (example: some parts are keyboard controls while others are mice)
Incorrect voltage readouts

Other Thoughts: This was paired with the Intel pentium 20 year anniversary edition which had an unlocked multiplier. I wouldn't buy this board for the price it's currently showing (fourty plus dollars) but at under twenty five dollars, it is a great deal. It doesn't contain any of the premium mobo features but we knew that going into it. For now, it is quite stable running as a tv recorder/downloader/file server machine.
