5 out of 5 eggsgreat board

Pros: great value motherboard, worked right out of box, will keep doing business with newegg. thanks so much

Cons: the I/o shield had some alignment issues but I worked them out, the lan cable doesn't seem to click in securely but it could be the cable itself.

5 out of 5 eggsMSI is honestly the best.

Pros: It has everything you'd realistically need for a motherboard. All the standard pins are there, the installation of the GPU, CPU, and RAM are as easy as it's ever been, and it even has an extremely detailed and all-around useful custom BIOS. everything down to the box itself is very pretty to look at. Its design is perfect for a black-and-green style build. It even included some pretty good pin labelers for those who would honestly just be better off using them. It also included a cute little "Sorry, busy gaming," door handle sign with an extremely well-made and well-detailed user guide.

Cons: There honestly isn't one.

1 out of 5 eggsLess than 6 months and it failed

Pros: When it worked it worked well.

Cons: Less than 6 months after getting the replacement for the original DOA this board failed. I used to swear by MSI motherboards but after this I am going to another manufacturer.

Other Thoughts: Cheap/inexpensive board that might work for a little while.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsGreat budget board!

Pros: Came with newest BIOS update so didn't have to update to use with i5-4690k! (ease-of-use BIOS)
Overclocks the 4690k just fine with no issues!
Works fine with my HyperX DDR3-1600, i5-4690k, and Evga GTX 760 2GB setup

Cons: Wish it had two PCIe 3.0 slots instead of one, but not an issue at all.

Other Thoughts: Insert CPU, heatsink, and memory first before installing (you should do with all PCs anyways)

3 out of 5 eggslooks better then it preforms

Pros: So I guess it would be ok in a war since its military grade.

Cons: Fan control sucks the board decides what it needs and there is no quiet setting. This is beyond stupid.

Other Thoughts: Cap it does not support windows xp 64 good thing I did not read the specs. The reason I did not receive my rebate was because that other company starts with the letter A took longer then 15 days to ship my case so I was out of the time frame. Thanks (A) for losing then finding my case. MSI could not care less even throw I had the proof that it was (A) was at fault. Thanks MSI for you understanding and great costumer service in the rebate department. I guess all I can say is if you are going to buy an MSI board with a rebate you better be on top of it and make sure you read their fine print. Because they were going to give me two extra days however that was not even close enough. So buy at your own Risk.

2 out of 5 eggsCame DOA

Pros: Looked beautiful coming out of the box.
IO shield is black.

2 Eggs because I believe that I would've really loved this MOBO if it actually worked.

Cons: Wish it wasn't DOA
It's such a hassle putting a system together only to realize that you have to wait another week before your build will be complete.

I've never purchased an MSI product before, really puts a bad taste in my mouth when I receive bad products.

Other Thoughts: im not too sure about why other people are saying this board wont oc a g3258, i updated bios from 10.0 to 10.2 and oc'd no problem

5 out of 5 eggsMSI QUALITY

Pros: Looks great. WORKED 1st time. Has latest 10.2 BIOS.

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: I wanted to do a budget build with some spare parts laying around and tried a different mfg. mobo. It was nothing but problems so I decided on a different route and used this board with a G3258 and am happy with the result. This board gives the room for further expansion 4690K and has OC ability. Lesson learned I will always use MSI for quality builds.

3 out of 5 eggs2nd board worked.

Pros: It is small yet nicely featured for an M-ATX board. MSI has fairly good customer service. The BIOS is nice.

Cons: The first one was defective. Either it was a refurbished one, or an open box but it was clearly bad. Thing is I didn't notice until it fried my CPU! Newegg RMA'd the board no problem but it shouldn't have gone out in the first place. I knocked off an egg for getting a bad board and another for having to wait for the RMA process to get a replacement.

Other Thoughts: This board does not allow overclocking, no matter what the description says. Intel has locked overclocking on all but the "z" boards. I wish I read some of the reviews of this board before I bought it but it came in a bundle, so my fault for not doing my research.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Unknown

Cons: Board was DOA has to be returned for replacement.

Other Thoughts: Purchased as component in a combo deal. All of the other parts seem to be ok but hard to tell as the mother board will not turn on.
