Pros:

Bios has a very cool GUI that is a refreshing change from the plain BIOS we have grown to hate. DDR3-1866 memory recognized at 1866Mhz with no adjustments at all! Not a huge pro, but I love the horizontal SATA ports :) One of the higher end 970 boards I have seen.

Cons:

No VRM heatsinks. There is however mounting holes for an add on heatsink so I will not deduct an egg for that.

Other Thoughts:

Purchased this board for my media PC, ended up replacing the Biostar TA970A in my gaming PC instead!! Both boards have the same chipsets and the same hardware, yet the MSI is twice as good. Memory never ran at 1866Mhz in the Biostar, no matter what the settings were at. Also, the Biostar claimed to have a UEFI BIOS, which looked exactly like the old BIOS with no GUI. If you have an FX/Phenom II/Athlon II CPU and don't want to spring for a 990 board, this is the board for you!
