4 out of 5 eggsMSI H81M-E35 V2

Pros: Fast Boot, Bios, Features,

Cons: The bios is over-kill could use a better tutorial to configure.

Other Thoughts: For those that are not knowledgeable of every aspect of configuring the bios a tutorial is in order here. The manufacturer should provide a video or written explanation of the different features to enable/disable..

2 out of 5 eggsRMA DOA

Pros: Nice cheap board, nice basic features.

Cons: Board was able to post but not get restart or turn off. I tried re-seating the CPU, RAM and Motherboard on the case. Installed everything on another brand motherboard and everything worked normal.

Other Thoughts: Might have just been a lemon, but I didnt have to the time to wait for a replacement board. MSI is a respected company and I might buy another MSI products.

4 out of 5 eggsGood board, but not without its quirks

Pros: Very well-featured for the price - front panel USB 3.0, standard PCI slot for legacy support, intuitive BIOS, well-placed SATA ports and a neutral color scheme, among other things. Currently running an i5 4690 and MSI GTX 970 on it, so it can support reasonably powerful builds.

Cons: While no major problems have surfaced, the board has been plagued with hiccups. When I upgraded my CPU from a G3420 to an i5 4690, the board would refuse to reboot - it would cold boot fine and shut down fine, but restarting from Windows or the BIOS would cause it to hang at a black screen - and the BIOS would not flash the update that allowed the board to support Haswell Refresh CPUs. MSI customer service resolved the issue with an RMA, but the replacement board has a different issue - the USB 3.0 ports on the rear panel issue a Code 10 error and refuse to work until I restart Windows, after which they work fine. (The board's USB 2.0 ports are unaffected.) It's a very minor issue, but it does bear mentioning.

Other Thoughts: If you can get one that works without any issues, you're set. It's a fantastic board with enough to satisfy all but the most hardcore users. MSI's support is very helpful, too, so on the off-chance a bad board shows up, you won't be left in the cold.

1 out of 5 eggsLots of Bugs

Pros: Lots of Features

Cons: Many USB problems not solved by new BIOS flash. Will not install Windows 7 with either PS/2 mouse & keyboard or USB mouse and keyboard. Installs Mint Linux 17 fine with both PS/2 and USB mouse and keyboard. But, even running Linux Mint, it will not reliably employ the EDIMAX EW-7811Un USB WiFi adapter. I've used this adapter on 2 other boxes, both Linux and Windows and it works fine.

Other Thoughts: Seems it was pushed out the door before it was ready. This one going back to Newegg.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid Micro ATX board

Pros: Used one of these to build a PC for a coworker. Simple board for building a non-power build. Clean board layout with enough USB and sata ports and pci-e for normal use.

Cons: None for what the board provides.

5 out of 5 eggsMSI another great board

Pros: Easy to setup. Instead of a motherboard manual, a poster is provided to easily connect front panel and light headers. The disk provided is sweet. It has a one-click setup that displays the directory tree so any unwanted item can be removed. This board has +1, and the standard 32bit pci slot, also a pci video expansion slot.

Cons: I had a problem with this board (I have built three of these lately); the system would freeze upon restart call. Press power 5 seconds, and system starts fine. Choose 'Shutdown' and system would shut down. Here is the good part; the tech from MSI worked with me until this was eventually solved by update bios (six emails, and process of elimination, etc) I am very happy with MSI support process overall, they really took ownership on my side. Thanks so much for that.

Other Thoughts: I am really liking MSI because of the most eggcelent support, the products do have 'Style with Innovation', and are a pleasure to own.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat MOBO

Pros: Great motherboard with some good overclocking abilities.
The click bios is very useful and the FastBoot works wonders.
I am able to boot to desktop (using an SSD in the SATA 6Gb/s slots, windows 7 x64) in just about 10 seconds.

Cons: Could have 4 RAM slots, but it is what it is.
No Cons other than that.
