Pros: It works quietly.
Cons: Had issues attaching the 20+4 rail to the mobo, took brute strength to get it to snap on but this was a flaw of the mobo so no eggs removed.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fits, works, runs my games and got a rebate...
Other Thoughts: If going for a gaming rig you should be using a full tower for the extra air flow and space to fit monstrous parts like this one. Mine fits with an internal 120mm fan at a 45 degree angle right next to it for the perfect fit.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: MSI 970A-G43 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Installed easily enough, works with windows 7 64bit OS, not having any real problems.
Cons: Had trouble connecting PSU 20+4 rail to the mobo. It just wouldn't completely fasten although it connected fine to another mobo without problem. The Bios is extremely frustrating to get into having a fraction of a second to press a button to reach it. For this reason I docked an egg because I ended up having to visit the Bios quite regularly while setting up my system to fine tune the settings.
Other Thoughts: Didn't use the two sata cables that came with the mobo because they were not labeled to be shielded or not or what type of shielding.
*The USB 3.0 drivers become corrupt when I plug in my XBox 360 controller into them and reboot the computer. The front ports of my computer are 3.0 only so this forces me to use the rear 2.0 ports which has become quite the hassle as I mod games so quite frequently need access to the console in game which having the controller plugged in disables so I'm getting up a lot to disconnect and reconnect.
