5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: - Very inexpensive
- Shipped with updated v1.8 BIOS (high enough to boot an i5 4460 without needing an update)
- Tiny footprint
- Easy installation

Cons: None - just make sure the expansion slots, SATA (cables and ports), and other connectivity options are enough to meet your needs. I miscounted my drives and ended up having to leave out my optical drive because the board only has 4 SATA slots and I needed all 4 for my HDs (totally my fault).

Other Thoughts: Booted up immediately with an i5-4460 and 8GB of GSKILL Ripjaw X RAM. Using for a small Microsoft Windows Server 2012R2 build that was on i7/X58, and dreaded having to reinstall OS and did not have a lot of time. I figured I would just move the HD over and try to boot without reinstalling OS, and after installing new drivers the OS works just fine (did have to reactivate OS and Office though). I may reinstall anyway when I have time just to make sure I am not leaving any performance on the table. Seems to be working just fine though. No issues streaming 1080P content, copying large files, etc. over my wired Gigabit LAN.

For under $50, you can't beat this board. It doesn't have all of the bells and whistles of more expensive boards, but so far it has been very reliable and more than adequate for my needs. This is my 2nd MSI board (also own a X79A-GD45 plus) and both boards are working great.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid motherboard

Pros: -Works as advertised
-Supports overclocking
-Nice BIOS interface

Cons: -No VGA port

Other Thoughts: Bought this on sale because it was the cheapest LGA1150 MicroATX board and it has performed solidly. I will say the CPU seating was more noisy than other Haswell boards I've dealt with and it was unnerving. Works fine, though I would have liked to see some legacy support in a budget level board for people who are still using old monitors.

5 out of 5 eggs18 mo. later

Pros: Everything I wanted: Cheap. Works.

Cons: none... maybe that it's teasingly close to fitting in an mITX case :D

Other Thoughts: I bought one about 18 months ago (pre-BF sales) and have been running it with an i5-4670. Works great!
Recommended it to my brother about 6 months ago to go with his i7-4690 (was listed compatible) and he's had zero issues.
Would definitely recommend if you don't need anything special.

4 out of 5 eggsAmazing for the price

Pros: Price, latest technology: USB 3, SATA 3, DDR3 1600

Cons: 1) Gigabit ethernet not working
2) Not really Micro ATX, it only has 2 expansion slots.

Other Thoughts: Gigibit eternet not working, did all the usuals, updated all the drivers. even tried a clean installation of win 7 but gigibit LAN is still not working. How much effort do i put into a $40 MB? I'll just buy another MB, and try to get a replacement from MSI

5 out of 5 eggsit worked!

Pros: it works and it didn't have any quality issues that'd make a newbie like myself break it! sturdy!

Cons: pcie2 slot placement makes me skeptical of ever upgrading to aftermarket cooling. the front panel ports (power, reset, LEDs) is at the bottom of the board, which brings the cables about an inch away from my 750 ti's fan.

4 out of 5 eggsIntel Pentium G3258 @ 4Ghz

Pros: Great little board, low price and good value. Worked out of the box with Intel anniversary edition dual core. Overclocked to 4Ghz immediately without any other tweaking. Time to find out how fast it will go!

Cons: Only 2 memory slots and 4 SATA connectors is a bit limiting for me as I am using this in a media center/file server.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat starter board.

Pros: Paired this with my Pentium G3258, works like a charm. Overclocked it to 4.2 without any issues, its small size makes it possible to fit it into M-ATX cases. Has USB 3.0 on the back panel. It seems well made for the price that I got it for ($40).

Cons: Lacks plugs for a front panel USB 3.0, the PCI-E slot is "only" V 2.0.

Other Thoughts: Cheap, decent specs and it is a well known brand, you can't go wrong with this board for basic to mid-range stuff.

2 out of 5 eggsBad VGA

Pros: Price, excellent pair for g3258

Cons: Fans, LED, HDD, USB ports, GPU all power up
No monitor signal.
Checked monitor on other pcs, used other cables, checked ram, power supply, hard drive, GPU, connections, pins for bending, processor - all works out except
No signal.
I needed this computer up and running without further hassle or purchases. Sad to see the last reviewer received a dead one also.
MSI support was helpful enough, guiding me through a number of irrelevant troubleshooting steps, but the RMA submission is/was a big problem, looped while trying to submit, and I had to use a different browser.

Other Thoughts: EVGA 430W 80+ Certified ATX Power Supply
Rosewill FBM-01 MicroATX Mini Tower Case
Zotac GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB Video Card
Kingston Fury Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 Memory
Intel Pentium G3258 3.2GHz Dual-Core Processor
Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Samsung SH-224DB/BEBE DVD/CD Writer
The exciting day of putting that new build together (!) turned into a sad, frustrating day, taxing of much of my time, and shipping costs. I ought to have gone with a better board in the first place.

1 out of 5 eggsMSI H81-P33

Pros: None

Cons: DOA. No sign of life. My first and last MSI product.

Other Thoughts: I was using this for a system build for a client the is on a tight time schedule and now that schedule is blown due to the fact that I now have to go through an RMA process. I should have known better than to stray from Asus. Never again.
