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.

1 out of 5 eggsBoot up with Black Blank Screen!Q

Pros: Does not boot up right. All components are brand new and Haswell certified. In spite of that still it does not work. Memory is 16gb. i7-4390k

Cons: Does not boot up

Other Thoughts: If it works it would have been nice

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

5 out of 5 eggsImpressive Board

Pros: Great looks, well built, Nice Bios and software.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: This MB is part of my sixth build, and went very smoothly. All worked just fine right off the bat. I have to hand it to MSI for providing a really detailed, and easy to understand manual. A first time builder should have no problem building this into a system. Nice looking and simple to use Bios too. So far, I couldn't be happier with this board, and highly recommend it.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Looks nice, built well, nice Bios, good software.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: This MB is part of my 6th build, and all went very smoothly. I have to give MSI credit for providing a great user guide. A first time builder should have no problem installing this board,...well, as long as they can read. I expected the "Sound Blaster" to be average "on board" quality at best, but was surprised at how nice it actually sounds. This build has been running for a few months now, and all is fine so far.
Overall, a nice board with great documentation. Highly recommended, especially for first timers.

1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't even work

Pros: The dragon looks cool I guess.

Cons: Decided to upgrade my old AMD CPU and msi mobo so i purchased an i5 and a msi z97. All the parts from my old computer where fine and working well with no problems even ordered a ssd to put windows on, once I had everything installed went to press the power button and nothing worked. I went through various tests to see what the problem was and the mobo was sent to me dead and in the process of packaging it back up for return i accidentally bent one pin so now I'm out 140$. DO NOT BUY THIS BOARD

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsnot bad

Pros: Not bad. the design is really nice

Cons: the rebate process is terrible and a bit pricey to me.

Other Thoughts: if this motherboard costs only 100 dollars, i will have nothing to complain about this board.

5 out of 5 eggsSweeet Board

Pros: Board is beautiful, feels solid. Connections are all accessible. Plenty of 4 pin fan connections. The software suite is nice as well. Easy access to current temps, stress tests, fan control. Hell.. I can now overclock my computer with my F*&(ing cell phone..This is truly an amazing time to be alive lol. MSI Command center is nifty, and so far my rig is performing..absolutely flawlessly with this backbone.

Cons: These are petty cons to say the least. The sound blaster sound cover is red when off, but neon pink when turned on. I have figured out a solution already but that's kinda silly.
Everything is spaced well, but the "black" finish on the board is painfully BROWN when in the light.

Other Thoughts: Buy it already??
