1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: None

Cons: First one I got had too many bios problems to handle, including error 99. Sent it back in for a new one and the next one that was sent to me didn't come with a speaker and had the same problems. Nothing personal against Msi but do not buy this product .

3 out of 5 eggsFirst one D.O.A.

Pros: I got the combo deal for a customer and the first MB was DOA, the replacement was just fine and Newegg took care of it great! They even allowed me to order a new one before I returned this one and then gave me the refund once the first one returned to them and DOA was verified so my customer did not have to wait so long so Newegg gets 5/5 from me as usual.

Cons: DOA

Other Thoughts: It happens

1 out of 5 eggsFailed after 1 month

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Failed after 1 month. I tried to contact MSI for a exchange and they want the buyer to pay for shipment. At the price you paid, it's not worth spending more money.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for Mid tower

Pros: MSI Click bios
OC Genie for easy overclock
Fits perfectly into a mid size case for great cooling.

Cons: Lacks USB 3.0
VGA and HDMI out but no DVI

Other Thoughts: Great budget board. Perfect for those snug builds. Choose ram wisely on 2 slots.

4 out of 5 eggsGets the job done

Pros: Surprisingly tiny, comes with everything I needed, good price, and nice fan control. I only tried the memory overclock, which worked fine but I wonder how smart it is at setting timings properly. I didn't have time to check if I could customize them myself.

Cons: The EFI BIOS is nice but aside from the graphs, I find it slower to navigate overall, and it was pretty lacking in options. Speaking of options, I found at least 1 that was intel-specific and readily available, which was very weird. I don't care about the flashy visuals, I just want to get to the point. I also tried downloading the latest 3 BIOS updates on the website and they all claimed my board was incompatible. I quadruple-checked that I was looking at the correct product.

The "manual" is pretty much useless. It mostly included info that you should be very well acquainted with before building a PC (such as how to install a CPU) and very little information about stuff unique to this board, such as the header pins. Sure you could argue "look at the manual on the CD" but what good is that if the only PC around me is the one that isn't assembled yet?

Other Thoughts: The small size has its advantages for highly custom builds, but it also gets me to wonder - why? What advantage was it to knock off the additional PCIe slot? I think the "Military Class" branding everywhere is a bit cheesy too, especially considering I highly doubt any military actually uses this board.


Anyway, I feel like this board is just fine for an office build or a simple home PC. It comes with everything you need and functions just fine. I wouldn't recommend this for PC enthusiasts - I've used Core2 and Athlon 64 micro ATX boards with more features (albeit, with older versions of SATA and PCIe).

4 out of 5 eggsWorks Pretty Well

Pros: Good motherboard that still works. I bought it about eight moths ago.

Cons: Onboard LAN drivers don't work I tried to install them twice with MSI live update 6. Didn't work. Also, sound drivers work but weirdly. I have to set the device i'm using to default whenever i plug it in.

Other Thoughts: To sum it up, this is a good board. I will again try to install the drivers.
PRECAUTIONS:
Long Grahics cards cover up 2 sata ports.
Dual slot Graphics cards cover PCIe x1 slots.

1 out of 5 eggsLooked good

Pros: Nor sure

Cons: Dead on arrival

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,
Based on the symptom you described, many reasons can cause the situation like this. We suggest you try the following steps:
1. Power down system, test with minimum components (1 stick of ram, video, CPU power supply).
2. Clear cmos, verify that you have both main 24pin JPRW1 and 12volts JPWR2 ATX power connectors connected.
3. If possible verify a different memory stick, power supply etc.
For additional troubleshooting and supports please feel free to contact MSI team directly for assistance at 626.271.1004 from M to F, 6am to 6pm Pacific Time.

5 out of 5 eggsAfter Two Months Working Great

Pros: Low cost, works great.

Cons: If using this board for Linux has one quark with on-board LAN but fix is easy.

Other Thoughts: If using this board with current Linux distributions you will most likely need to install the latest network driver because the kernel detects the wrong one. The download is available from the Realtek site if you search for Realtek 8168 driver. Also make sure you download the one titled LINUX driver for kernel 3.x and 2.6.x and 2.4.x. Once installed the integrated gigabit works perfectly.
