This review is from: MSI H67A-G43 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel H67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Lots of addon slots. Good price.
Ships with outdated BIOS
I purchased the motherboard with a G530 CPU, and when turning on there was no beep, nothing displayed. The fans started and that was all. Eventually after trying many things I purchased a G620 CPU which is supported by V3.0 of the BIOS. It turns out that it shipped with V3.1 of the BIOS. Unfortunately there is no way to update the bios without having a supported CPU on hand.
I put in requests to the manufacturer web site, together with all information about the motherboard and CPU, and their response was the standard "check all the power cables, do a bench test", etc. I would expect the manufacturer to know what is going on.
Now I have a working system, but also a slew of extra parts I purchased while trying to figure out what was faulty.
