4 out of 5 eggsGreat Board

Pros: MSI gaming series is great. I was able to get this on sale for less than more basic boards. Has plenty of USB ports, has HDMI, Displayport, VGA, DVI, optical out! Great features and haven't had any trouble navigating the bios or using it in general.

Cons: It won't overclock my new Pentium G3258. I made sure to check around to see if the B85 from MSI would be getting the ability to overclock and everything pointed to yes but in practice I cannot change those BIOS settings.
EDIT: Forgot to edit this review, can overclock the Pentium I bought without issue.

1 out of 5 eggsDead on Arrival - Absolutely sub par

Pros: None that I experienced - DOA

Cons: Did not turn on - never displayed a bios

Other Thoughts: I suppose this is the typical review for a DOA product. NewEgg was decent enough about it - but still charged me for shipping. It was simply sub-par to completely put together a brand new system from scratch only to find that the motherboard was defective. No booting up at all - and excruciatingly painful - So much so that I'll never go back to this brand. I've had other items DOA, but a motherboard is simply unacceptable. It's just too darn important (and time consuming when you figure out it's not working, that you have to remove literally the entire build, and then wait at least 2 weeks for the mail to send off your old and get in a new.

Words cannot express my disappointment with this product.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome budget gaming board

Pros: -Red
-Micro ATX size for smaller builds like mine (Put this in an Air 240 case)
-B85 chipset (good overclocking and it's cheap)
-3 year warranty from MSI!
-cool little LED line from the audio output to the sound card on the board (and the on-board card glows red ;P)

This board is quite amazing. Not many people know about it or look lesser than it is at it because it's quite cheap for a gaming board. But WOW, can this thing perform! runs wonderfully with my budget build (r7 260x and i3-4370) and I can run many games such as The Forest and Battlefield 4 on high settings. The board has many great features such as audio boost and overclocking capability. Love this board, and if anything were to go wrong, there's a 3 year warranty from MSI. and ALL THIS FOR 90 BUCKS? WOW!!!!!!!!!

Cons: The PCB is a nice black color, but the circuitry lines all over the board are brown, meaning when you have a light shining on it, the board looks almost a brownish tint that I do not enjoy. But, that's only my personal opinion on the aesthetics of it, and the board itself is wonderful.

Other Thoughts: Honestly, if you're looking for a wonderful board for gaming that is rich with features and has overclocking capability, look no further than the MSI B85M Gaming Board!!!

5 out of 5 eggsMSI B85M GAMING - Great Motherboard

Pros: Have only had this motherboard about a week but so far it's working great. Paired it with an i5-4590, 12gb of ram in dual channel occupying all 4 ram slots (crucial ballistix sport ddr3 1600) a radeon HD 7850 2gb and 256gb crucial ssd. Everything works great, can't wait to buy a better gpu for this setup. Hoping for an r9 390. You can't go wrong with this mobo!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: There's a new bios version that just came out (10.3) for this motherboard, mine shipped with 10.2. It's very easy to flash the bios just make sure you have a flash drive you can download and extract the file to. If you need help youtube how to use msi M-Flash

5 out of 5 eggsA solid motherboard

Pros: Nice feature set, support for Gen4 Haswell CPUs, good OC feature set

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Got this MOBO about 9 months ago and it has been running wonderfully since then. Like many it paired it with a G3258, but have recently upgrade it to a 4790K with a Cooler Master Hyper T2 cooler in a Skyline 07-G case. I thought the fit of the fan might be tight, but it had some room to spare. Under stress testing it runs up to 4.4GHz and tops out at about 63C on long stress test runs. I had gotten the case to handle more HDDs and I have maxed out the SATA ports, so may add a PCIe controller or shop for a new MOBO, more likely the car though. The B85M has been a very stable and hard working platform. I highly recommend it and in fact am getting another to replace another MSI board my son has with hhis G3258.

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.

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)
