This review is from: MSI Z77A-G45 Gaming LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: It worked as advertised for 4 months.
Cons: The Killer NIC,which was a major reason that I bought it, didnt really do much.
The BIG fail is that the LAN port/Killer NIC port, is no longer recognized by windows. Its gone. ie:Broken.
the MSI motherboard failed after 4 months, I've never had a problem with any other motherboards, after 16 years of building them.
The LAN port is gone, I';ve removed CMOS, i've downloaded every file and driver, I've deleted network adapters, etc etc.. Lan Port No Longer Exists.
I have read that this is a problem, that happens with this board. I didnt know this until AFTER I had bought the board.
Other Thoughts: The board may or may not last long for you, for me it was 4 months. If i was to RMA it, it is 5-15 business days after THEY receive it, approx. Or I can buy a new board from a different manufacturer. So 4 weeks without my computer (home/rig) and then 'who knows' what the company will find.
Or spend another 150$ with shipping for a brand new board.
