MSI Z77A-G45 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Looks nice and worked well for under 90 days.

Cons: Everything was working nicely until the mobo capaitor popped. I bought this on 2/24/14. Piece of junk died on 4/15/14. I kept EVERYTHING at stock so there was no overclocking or voltage changes. They brag about this crappo having solid capacitors and all but it shows that MSI is using false advertising.

Other Thoughts: this bad mobo/i7 2700k, 16GB DDR1333 Gskill Ripjawx, GTX 760 in SLI, intel320 SSD, Samsung 840 SSD, Corsair H80 CPU kit, Corsair 750W PSU, Antec 1200 v3.

I'm looking for another company at this point. I used to use MSI mobo's and GPU's. Not anymore/

BIOSTAR TZ68K+ LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works well - I think.

Cons: Only 4 USB slots on mobo - and that's it. Constantly getting BSOD on Corsair XMS 16GB (2x8GB). Been running memtest86+ for several hours with 4 passes complete with no errors so I think the mobo may be faulty for my system crashes.

Other Thoughts: bought this on another site n 2011. Thinking about buying the MSI Intel Z68 (B3) Chipset ATX DDR3 1066 Intel - LGA 1155 Motherboards Z68A-G43 as it has more functionality at the same price. If I knew this mobo only had 4 USB slots total, I would have bought the MSI.

Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 Yorkfield Quad-Core 2.83 GHz LGA 775 95W BX80569Q9550 Desktop Processor
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: All cores stay in the low 30's degree celcius at idle. Even at full throttle its not too hot. It is probably the best core out there for the LGA775 mobos.

Cons: Its a bit more expensive then I'd like. If I had a 1155 mobo, I probably would have gotten an i7 for the price.
