5 out of 5 eggsGreat simple board

Pros: - Great cheap board with everything needed for a great build.

Cons: The only thing I can think of that might be a con is that the faster SATA ports could be positioned better so that if you have a big GPU like I do you can still get to the SATA ports without having to remove your GPU everytime. Also the same SATA port position issue makes it impossible to have a big GPU and use L-shaped SATA cables with the faster SATA ports as well. It's not that big of a deal to me, but you may feel differently.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this to others who are looking for functionality, but not necessarily flashy-ness.

1 out of 5 eggsWorst Piece of Equipment I've Ever Used

Pros: -Cheap

Cons: -Does not work with Windows 7
-Will not display anything coming out of PCI-E slot (tested GTX 465 and R9 280)

Other Thoughts: I will never buy another MSI product in my life. This has been the worst experience I've ever had to deal with.

3 out of 5 eggsaaaaahhhh... its ok, no longer overclocks g3258

Pros: Cheap, always had good luck with MSI.

Cons: Does not support OC of intel g3258 any longer, in order to use the OC Genie you seem to have to click an highlight it in the bios first. but with this chip it will not highlight. therefor the OC Genie does nothing. It did not like linux mint. I mean it worked but in steam the keyboard did not work and usb 3 was a no go. the usb 3 ports did not even work at all. Loaded windows 7 pro and all seems well. Except that i was hoping to use the Genie. Also the video sucks. I know its integrated and they all suck, but i also built a system with the MSI PC MATE MB (z97) and the G3258 and the graphics work great. ( my boys are just playing counter strike online with there friends) z97 gets 107 fps on default settings on this game and rocks, the h81m-e34 gets 38 and is grainy and unplayable.

Other Thoughts: It seems to work ok for office tasks but not for even 15 y/o games on steam.. I would not buy this board again. First time Toms Hardware has ever steered me wrong.

1 out of 5 eggsSeriously?

Pros: Worked fine for about a week of occasional use. (testing and such)

Cons: LEDs on board never worked. The board was taking power considering it actually booted a few times and performed properly. Now my computer is dead, wont turn on and I have no way of telling if it's an issue with my power supply or the motherboard itself.

Other Thoughts: Believe me, I've tried all those little tricks for about 4 hours now trying to see if it would make a difference, to see if it would turn on at all. Nothing happened. It's especially frustrating not being able to tell why it wont power either. This WAS going to be a Christmas present to my mother... looks like it could be missed. I would really like to see a working version of this product to give a proper review.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Cheap Motherboard

Pros: Absolutely Excellent for the price! It is the cheapest motherboard here that includes an onboard USB 3.0 Header. Plenty of expansion slots for stuff. A LOT of USB ports on the back including 4 USB 3.0. It also has HDMI, DVI, and VGA.

I have purchased about 15 of these for local businesses and offices and every time they just deliver. So far, I haven't received any DOA, nor have I had to RMA or Warranty any of them.

Cons: The I/O Plate always needs to have the prongs bent out of the way, but that's almost every I/O plate. This is a solid piece of hardware.

Other Thoughts: I'd put my money into this for any basic computer!

5 out of 5 eggsTop Shelf Motherboard

Pros: Must have bought 50 of these and only sent one back.
MSI promptly gives you an RMA and replaces a flawed
motherboard for free for 3 years; what more could you ask for. I only buy MSI motherboards and I buy 100's a year.

You buy a motherboard for what it will be used for and this board runs three monitors flawlessly with ease.

I deliver four or five a month to my corporate customers without DVD burners to run the factory equipment out in the environment that is not pleasant for man or machine.

Only had one return because of a failed power supply and all I had to do was replace it and it went right back onto the factory floor.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: I put all of these in a Rosewill "Line" case.

1 out of 5 eggsGood for one boot

Pros: The one boot that it did was very fast

Cons: The firstt boot went very well. The only thing I had plugged in was a SSD with W 8.1 on it. It was very fast and the video was great. I connected my other devices; a card reader, 2 dvd drives and another HDD. Restarted and I got an error during POST.
" over current have been detected on your usb device ". Thinking it was my old power supply I bought another one, wasn't happy I had to pat retail price but I needed a working system. Well as luck wold have it more money down the drain, it gave me the same error. I have removed everything but the ram an I still get the same error. This is my first MSI and I never had this much trouble with a build, very disappointing. I have never in my time had to send anything back but I guess this is it.
