5 out of 5 eggsG3258 + 290 for now, i7 and crossfire later

Pros: Crossfire ready
Easily overclocked the G3258
Price/Functionality ratio
Intel Z97 family

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I've paired this motherboard with an antec 850, a g3258 (4.4ghz OC), and r9 290. I plan to swap the G3258 with a next generation i7 and add another 290 in crossfire.

1 out of 5 eggsDo not buy!!!!

Pros: None

Cons: Isn't a full size ATX board and now because of it I'm stuck with a $90 board I can't use. Great job MSI! Way to waste my money. Never going with MSI again.

5 out of 5 eggsPowerful!

Pros: This thing is sweet and works great. Easy to install and configure. The bios takes a little getting use too but has a lot of easy to use options. This was made to OC and the genie makes it happen.

Cons: Instructions could have been better to cover all the options in the BIOS and would have been nice if it covered the SHELL that it can boot too if you are not careful.

Other Thoughts: All in all it got me up and running in no time and with my CPU and Memory working at optimum in a matter of minutes.

2 out of 5 eggsWasted Time

Pros: Lots of SATA connections

Cons: Wouldn't detect sound, whether onboard or PCI sound card. The BIOS kept changing my boot order every time I restarted the computer. It wouldn't detect my SSD drives. Re-installed Windows and the problems still existed.

Other Thoughts: Spend time and money rebuilding my son's gaming computer for his birthday but now he'll have to wait another week. I switched from another brand to this but I think I'll go back to the brand I've used in the last 6 builds.

5 out of 5 eggssolid

Pros: Tons of OC options/settings
Great BIOS menu
Nice layout

Cons: Confusing system panel connections.

Other Thoughts: Make sure to use the JPF1 jumpers instead of the JFP2 for case system panel connections. I don't know why they even put JFP2 there, I used it and thought my board was DOA when nothing turned on.

4 out of 5 eggsworks well

Pros: works, easy to use bios, cheap

Cons: like many others have said it is NOT full size atx. One whole edge of the motherboard is completely unsupported. MUST be very careful plugging the 24 pin power connector.

Also, not really a con but, doesnt support sli.

Other Thoughts: if the board was either the size it says, or said clearly that it wasn't full size atx then it would be 5 stars.

1 out of 5 eggsA piece of FOD

Pros: Lots of USB ports
umm, its pretty

Cons: Its a piece of junk.
Won't boot properly two times in a row

Other Thoughts: Over the last two weeks every time I turn it off or reboot it, it changes the bios settings. One day the boot order is my SSD, the next day its the HDD. One day its in UEFI mode and next its Legacy + UEFI mode. And I DID NOT change any boot or setup settings. I'm tired of having to reset settings every time I power it on. So I'm with this mobo.

5 out of 5 eggsReview 2 of 2

Pros: Has taken over six months of heavy use and not flinched once. Overclocking on the fly is great. Temperature sensors throughout are excellent. Bundled Software is very useful for the most part. I have put this board through the paces and it has never caused an issue to date.

Cons: The included MSI software is a bit slow and frustrating. Not worth knocking a star though.

Other Thoughts: This is an excellent value and gives the most bang for your buck. I have no comment on the crossfire support- I prefer Nvidia for my graphics and do not use multiple cards in either case.

Also make sure your USB 3.0 drivers are up to date! Kind of a "Duh" moment on my part, but it took better part of 6 months for the drivers to appear on the included update software.

All in all, I think MSI is my new go-to brand.

1 out of 5 eggsBad connector spaceing

Pros: Looks good, not laid out well for some USB 3.0 connectors. Like the one in an Antec Sonata III.

Cons: If you buy this board, do not try to force the USB 3.0 connector from the front of your case in to the socket on the board. The USB socket is TOO CLOSE to the Power socket . Sometimes you have to be firm with MB connectors. I noticed that the USB connector was tight the first time I attempted to attach it to the MB. When I sat the case upright it fell out. when I attempted a bit more force the connector on the MB broke and the pins were bent. Maybe too much force? Maybe a BAD FIT between case and MB., Oh well its only money...

Other Thoughts: Both the MB and the case are quality parts. The combination is deadly. and expensive. I would have liked to see a note concerning this issue in either or both parts listing
