1 out of 5 eggsWrong chipset

Pros: Looks fantastic

Cons: The page specifies that it'll fit i7 cards, but after I'd opened it up and was all ready to drop my i7 in there... The little safety nibs didn't align. I thought to myself maybe I'd just put it in upside-down, but nope. After a second look over the package, the box specifies that this motherboard is ONLY for i3 and i5 processors.

Other Thoughts: Filed an RMA and I'll be getting a new, different mobo. Hopefully it's compatible with my CPU.

Pros: Good looking board with good specs.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid board

Pros: Where do I begin? This board has a beautiful design to it. From the spacing of PCI slots all the way to the heatsinks are designed. This board really knows how to combine functionality with style. The board boots up and shuts down with no audio feedback whatsoever. This was a problem on my last asus. The board also has little to no feedback when using the headphone jack on VOIP. Oh, another thing it has is plenty of cpu fan plugs. I'm currently running a water cooling system and 8 fans off of it with ease.As a matter of fact, I just ordered 2 more. Audio booster on it is also a pretty cool feature. All in all it's looking like a solid board. If it carries out the next several years like this I'll says its one of the best mobos I've had the pleasure of owning.

Cons: None that I could think of at the moment.

Other Thoughts: I'd like to see a display with a series of codes on it. That way if something goes wrong with the board I could look the code up right away and trim down troubleshooting time. When the display is not displaying a code have it display CPU temps.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,
Based on the symptom you described, many reasons can cause the situation like this. We suggest you try the following steps:
1. Power down system, test with minimum components (1 stick of ram, video, CPU power supply).
2. Clear cmos, verify that you have both main 24pin JPRW1 and 12volts JPWR2 ATX power connectors connected.
3. If possible verify a different memory stick, power supply etc.
For additional troubleshooting and supports please feel free to contact MSI team directly for assistance at 626.271.1004 from M to F, 6am to 6pm Pacific Time.

Best Regards,
MSI Review Team | usreview@msi.com
