4 out of 5 eggsworks well

Pros: Supports Windows 10

Cons: Bad Software on the CD and Live Update Utility

Other Thoughts: I reinstalled everything 2-3 times trying to pin point what was causing BSOD with Windows 7. I was almost convinced the Corsair LS ssd was the issue. Gave it one last try, and avoided any software from the CD and msi live update software. Downloaded drivers from the vendor if possible, and then from MSI. I only took any software that was needed. Installed all of them manually and not with the live update software. Now the BSOD seem to have gone away.
The upgrade to Windows 10 seems to have gone smoothly. No missing drivers after the update.

5 out of 5 eggsPart of a G3258 Bundle, Glad it was

Pros: $Price was a given, if I had known about this MOBO I would have bought at lease 1 more. I couldn't get a Gigabyte z97 to recognize the G3258, couldn't get it to overclock. Read this setup would rock my socks off, and it did. I have pushed this MOBO from the beginning, I loaded so much stuff like two hotswap docks, a media center with sata connections w/etc, fan controller w/3.0 all at once, plus dvd writer, cleared the cmos and let it rip. SSD and hdd download windows 8.1 and let it purr. I enabled everything and it found everything, then I downloaded the drivers for the MOBO and it worked faster.

I found another case and about torn out one of the pci-e changing cases(extra 3.0 for front case- I like at lease 4 of the 3.0), and was afraid I really messed up the MOBO, but NOOOOOOOO it likes a timex man, takes a lickin and keeps on tickin. I don't know if that pci-e works or not- didn't want to chance it.

go in BIOS push the overclock button and it whirls man to 4.3 by it self, activate the 2nd core on the G3258 with windows set up, a really cheap gamer with a r7 280x card.

I have 3 gigabyte boards, none compare to my MSI boards(got a MSI Gamer Board with my fx4350 for my video/music stuff), I guess they are for the higher intels, or the cheapest AMDs.

Cons: none I have found

1 out of 5 eggsDEAD ON ARRIVAL

Pros: None.

Cons: This board was DOA (Dead on Arrival). Im glad i buy most of my stuff off Am-a-zo-n (sometimes a bit more expensive) but at least i get good shipping and i can return the item.

My last motherboard broke but my PC would still turn on. I got this one. excited to get back to gaming after a month. And my PC doesnt turn on or do anything. Upon reading amazons negative reviews nearly everyone with a 1 star said the board was DOA...Im switching to ASUS..
