5 out of 5 eggsSuperb Motherboard

Comments: I replaced an Abit VT& that I had for seven months. My machine was rebooting, freezing or getting a hardware malfunction at least five times a day. It was awful. I ordered this motherboard after reviewing support pages, manuals and these reviews. What a 5 star motherboard this is. Great documentaion, stabile and seems so fast. The setup was super easy. I could not give this a better recommendation. Great product from Newegg

5 out of 5 eggsthis board rocks

Comments: Flawless installation! Best part is it comes with a diagnostic tool (LED Lights) that pin point basic problems at bootup. Diag tool plugs into headers on the board and takes up a plate on the back. Another great feature is that it comes packaged with rounded IDE cables.

4 out of 5 eggs

Comments: This is the second MSI motherboad that i have used in a build and must say that i believe that MSI is outshining ASUS. Both of the builds went together flawlessly with no error or what not. Bios are very user friendly, allowing even the most inexperienced person tweak and overclock their system. Only downside that i saw and i could be wrong but the agp and pci freq. is not locked so when you up the fsb it ups those as well

3 out of 5 eggsBIOS Beware

Comments: Although I think that this MB is good hardware, MSI’s support is much less than “world class”. The Live Update didn't flash the BIOS correctly and MSI wasn't much help in getting it resolved. Their policy is not to update the BIOS unless you’re having a problem. As an engineer I know that it’s not always possible to tell as an end user if your having a problem unless it is a problem that effects something obvious. MSI has a dilemma of providing utilities that advise when a BIOS needs updating with a policy that advises against updating to the current revision. In my experience I believe that this reflects a software configuration management issue at MSI. In the years to come I'm concerned about the ability to get the most from my MB and ensure the longest and most reliable life. I'm not sure that I'll buy another MSI MB because of the support and what I perceive as a bad support policy. I built a computer so I could get leading edge performance. If I wanted off the shelf performance I would have bought a Dell. Incidentally, their own FAQs state that this is a problem that may require a replacement of the BIOS chip. BIOS beware!
