Pros: Good feature set but some of the software still has bugs, sexy look, great overclocker (Probably my CPU but the board helps), no coil whine.
Cons: Chipset problems, OC Genie problems, a lot of there software didn't work for a while and i still have to reinstall programs all the time because they just stop working.
Other Thoughts: MSI has good board ideas but i personally think they need to run their boards though better tests. I don't care id they stress test them for 24hrs or whatever i've had 4 and they were all different models and the sad thing is that they were all back to back. MSI my suggestion to you is work on your software and test out these things before you send them out.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Nice Design, OC ready, lots of accessories and features, no coil whine
Cons: Bad UEFI design, not enough fan headers, AND the big problem is that neither my North Bridge nor South Bridge Initiate on start-up. (Full story in other thoughts)
Other Thoughts: Now i made the mistake of not checking the board before i painted the yellow stripes on the heat syncs and after i realized it was faulty they wouldn't take it back anymore which much annoy's me... for example i painted my ASUS Z77 Sabertooth and they said "Its fine take everything off that you painted and we'll send you a brand new one". Well MSI, this is a know problem with your boards you can google (MSI North Bridge Initiation or 03/04 post code error) and theirs people on the MSI forum and other places with almost the identical problem. I expected more from a board thats meant for overclocking enthusiasts but thats not the image i got from my phone call. I personally recommend something from ASUS, Gigabyte or IntelREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Bright, no backlight bleed, the slim bezel is nice even though the screen stops way before the bezel, sharp looking.
Cons: At least one bad pixel on both of them. I mean come on.... Seriously. My $20 phone didnt have any dead pixels. I decided on not returning them just because it woudn't be worth it. Also the colors are a little off so side by side they look weird.
Other Thoughts: So if your on a tight budget i feel this monitor will most likely suit your needs however if your picky and a perfectionist like me go for a Dell thats calibrated and tested for pixel problems. I wish i had for just $30 moreREAD FULL REVIEW
