1 out of 5 eggsThree out of four are dead within a month

Pros: they were cheap

Cons: I needed a few more compute nodes for a cluster and being on a low budget, I bought the cheapest boards of a brand I USED to trust... Two were DOA, the third one just died this morning... What the hell MSI? I used to be a loyal customer but with this experience, I'm not even sure I want to return them for replacement... This is pathetic.

5 out of 5 eggsEZ OC Combo

Pros: Bought this with G3258 unlocked 3.2 Ghz($90 w/$10 rebate) 1 push of the OC Genie in BIOS and drop it a notch in MSI Command Center to 4.2 and saved to profile. Tried the 4.3 but came unstabled in a short while, but on boot up HWMontior has it 4.5 on start up. Been running this for 12-16 hours and even with STOCK heatsink(just to try it waiting for sale) it is only 40-42 C..
240 Gb SSD, 1TB WD storage,16 GB 1600 ram,dashboard for extra usb 3.0 frt help with fan control, resting in a Unicorn case with the Wings (great solution to a bench). If it gets a little warm crack the case open in 1 second. Added 2.5 hot swap(for OS) and a 2.5 w/ 3.5 hot swap(use them for the additional hdds) for additional storage, better than a Raid setup. 8.1 works fine for me I like it alot. With a couple of extra fans and it all came out to $608 with the R7 260X gaphics. I LOVE THIS BUILD.

Cons: NONE.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat Mobo, Very Fast, Easy Install

Pros: IT Professional here, had to purchase a z97 pci3.0 mobo after my previous one blew to a power surge- this new one, works great- so far... About a 8 second boot time with a SSD installed and the z97 chipset will rock performance to a entire new level, new video card or not

Cons: Biggest pet peaves and the reason it got 4 eggs is because you pay over $100 and get no stickers! Not one MSI sticker came with this thing. Not to mention screws!! No screws. I had to re-use the old screws (I know not a big deal) But think if you were building a build from scratch- you wouldn't have the risers or screws.... MSI lost 2 eggs on that one

Other Thoughts: No screws, No stickers --- Other than that great performance, easy to OC with BIOS GUI

4 out of 5 eggsGood Motherboard. Unable to Overclock.

Pros: It was a great deal. Bought this combo with a G3258 processor. Performance is pretty good. The motherboard has great options on it. I really liked the extra SATA ports, the USB 3.0. I run an SSD and my WEI score jumped off the charts in comparison to my old board.

Cons: So far I'm not able to overclock my G3258. I don't know if this a problem with the board, the processor or both. I've researched the overclocking of this chip and the information is there but not helpful. The MSI website even implies there is a special overclocking bios? So is the bios different from the bios on the Motherboard home page? The information just seems messy to me. I haven't tried the overclocking BIOS that I found on the Overclocking web page. I'm kind of nervous about loading it. I tried using the overclock button and manually in the bios. Just gives me a failure and reverts me back. Even increasing the multiplier by 1x fails.

Other Thoughts: I'm happy with the board but I'm pretty sure I'm going to probably part ways with the CPU in favor of an i3 or i5 before year end.

5 out of 5 eggsRock solid...

Pros: So far so good. It booted right up and has run flawlessly with 1866 Sniper RAM. XMP profile was recognized and entered without issue.

Cons: I/O plate is the cheapest, chintziest looking piece of junk I have ever seen in my life. It is just plain metal with stamped labels. No black finish, no nothing except for a plate.

Other Thoughts: I have worked in engineering firms where the sample I/O plates looked better. No overclock on the G3258 I have installed but CPU temps are low and the board feels solid and well built.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Matched my MSI components well in color. Fit well in my case.

Cons: Didn't work at all, clearly defective. All fans powered on, some case lights did not work, no post. Replaced with a Gigabyte Z97X-UD3H-BK and it worked right away.

Other Thoughts: I've rarely spent over $100 on a motherboard, as I'd generally rather just build a new computer than overclock, but I like to have the options there. MSI has generally been pretty good to me and everyone gets a dud once in a while, but regardless I will be returning this board right away.
