MSI B85M-G43 LGA 1150 Intel B85 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX High Performance CF Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This board has higher end features on a middle of the road priced board. I use this for my HTPC / Home Server setup and it runs 24X7. I have not seen any issues with it and installation was a breeze. Some have complained about space between the PCIe and RAM but I have a GTX560 in mine and it fits.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: If you are an overclocking gamer then this is probably not the board for you but if you are looking for a solid performer that is stable and reliable then this is what you are looking for. I have it paired with a Haswell 3.5Ghz i3 and this is more than I need.

Pros: Very responsive, hyper threading, all the good stuff.
The CPU handles my HTPC with ease, running Windows media center with ease. Every thing is smooth.

The CPU stays very cool which in turn makes the fans very quiet. I have the stock cooler on and it works just fine.

Lastly, do not under estimate this CPU. Remember, it is a dual core Haswell running at 3.5Ghz. Much more power than I had anticipated.

Great performance for the price.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have this in an MSI B85M motherboaed, 1 OS drive and a 6TB raid 0 array for recordings, file sharing and other media.

PC serves as:
Media center PC (DVR) (I cut the cord)
File Server - all audio and video files are stored there
Web server - Runs IIS

Never slows down and runs great.

Pros: Installed 32GB in a new build. No issues from day one. Been running heavy load for more than a month with no issues.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I do not overclock anything. These stick are solid and stable. Can't beat the value for a CAS 9 stick.
