5 out of 5 eggsSurprised at the low reviews

Pros: Ability to overclock on a B85 chipset, I'm running a Pentium anniversary edition at 4.4ghz stable on factory cooling.

Looks great

It started up and worked with no mess or fuss at all. The BIOS is very well laid out.

Cons: B85 can't do Intel Rapid whatever it's call where you can cache a HDD to an SSD, I run a straight up SSD with no issues though.

Other Thoughts: Really for the money it cost, this let me build a good mid-level gaming PC for a lot less than a higher end chipset would have.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: have lots of new features.

Cons: The BIOS out of the box is old. I have to use the 4th gen CPU to flash a newer BIOS in order to support the 5th Gen.

5 out of 5 eggsOverclocks G3258 perfectly

Pros: Nice stability for low price.

Cons: Only 1 USB connector.

Other Thoughts: Installed G3258 and a coolermaster TX3. Immediately flashed BIOS to C6 (C7 is now available) and over locked immediately to 4.2 GHZ by just changing multiplier. Burned in overnight with Prime95. No issues. Been gaming on it this way for about 3 weeks. Not a single glitch. For $89 spent on this combo, a steal!!! Unfortunately, I think the board is no longer being made.

3 out of 5 eggsKiller NIC is worthless

Pros: First MSI board and seems well built. Nice color scheme and everything is laid out logically. BIOS is graphical and very nice, not something I am used too at all. Seems to be working for the most part without a hitch except see below.

Cons: Killer NIC is worthless due to the fact it does not work correctly even after updating to the newest drivers, tweaking settings and running various programs to get it working. Constantly dropping connection to the internet. After hours of tweaking and trying various things including calling a friend of mine that works in IT for the Govt, I stumbled across a workaround to get it working. Two eggs off due to the frustration AND having to turn my Killer Nic into a normal card.

Other Thoughts: First build in about 5 years and lots of things have changed but one does expect a key feature and selling point of a "Gaming" board to work right out of the box. Rather disappointed. I will stay with ASUS on my next build.
