MSI Z68A-GD65 (G3) LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Intel Z68
  • Core i7 / i5 / i3 (LGA1155)
  • DDR3 1066 / 1333 / 1600* / 2133*(OC)

Pros:

Quality construction, great features, PCI 3.0, UEFI, Z68, on/off reset and OC physical buttons on the board, plenty of room between expansion slots, just a really nicely engineered MB and looks great in Blue/Black. Benchmarks are top notch across the board.

Cons:

The drivers and utilities are a nightmare to get installed in Win 7 64-bit. Win 7 64 didn't recognize any of the built in peripherals, Ethernet, audio, usb 3.0, etc so on. Normally no big thing but the driver disk installation interface was a nightmare, hung up constantly, and just flat crashed too many times to count. Nothing weird here either this in on a clean fresh install, no other software running or even installed. Then basically every driver installed from the DVD needed to be updated, more crashes, dozens of restarts, yada yada 6 hours later I'm finally able to start installing software. Very solid product, absolutely terrible utilty/driver softare. Only reason its not a 5 egg product.

Other Thoughts:

If your not pretty tech savy you may want to consider something else, as noted driver/utilty installation in Win 7 64bit is not for the meek at heart.
