This review is from: MSI H61M-P21 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel H61 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: easy setup, small board so it fit it fit in the small case that I wanted it for. ran good for about 2 weeks, was pretty fast for what it was. I/3 2130, 4 gigs crucial 1333,gtx 460,500 gig seagate. ran cool
Cons: the first week it would lose the sound at times, a restart would bring it back. no biggie I didnt like the sound on board anyway. Installed a creative x-fi extreme pci-e and problem solved for a couple days. then it started again.... hmmmm. at last last I was playing a music vid it played thru just fine but the next one wouldnt open. tried to restart my machine and no screen, no beeps, no nothing. pulled al the cards out, pulled the battery, tried different vid cards, differnt mem. nothing worked. just a dead board. I have seen alot of people on the net having these same problems.
Other Thoughts: I have been doing this since 1989, I have a pretty good Idea how to make things work. I used to build alot of msi boards and had
no probs. going back to Intel, seems msi has fell on their nose. DONT EVEN BOTHER WITH THESE EVEN FOR A CHEAP BUILD... you will be sorry
