5 out of 5 eggs Great board for the price 12/26/2013

This review is from: MSI Z87-G55 LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros:

-blue and black, the color scheme I like best
-Z87 chipset means all SATA III ports so it'll be speedy regardless of which port I plug into
-Plenty of PCIE for graphics cards and peripherals
-4 USB 3.0 ports in the back and one header onboard for 2 more
-UEFI BIOS doesn't look bad, not the best layout, but preferable to the BIOS of the past
-Can easily tweak (if you look for them, not easy to find, not hard to find) processor and RAM clocks and timings

Cons:

-Wish there was even more onboard USB 3.0 but realistically, I've got 6 of those ports now so I'm not exactly lacking
-Wish 8-pin CPU power was closer to the edge of the board

Other Thoughts:

SOMEBODY mentioned that this shouldn't be a board for anyone wanting to overclock and I will agree with them in terms of using OC Genie because it won't even get close to a decent overclock. But for those looking to manually overclock anyway and skip the genie, this board is fantastic on a budget. My Core i5-4670k is running at 4.5 GHz just fine because I set them myself and tested. Don't fear that those settings are "locked out" or anything like that
