Junk DOA for what we need

Pros: Look great

Cons: DOA Will not find any PCI cards except PCI Express! Can not use the MSI Geforce GTX 1050TI as it will not see it. Think it is a power problem as the fans on the Video card will not run. Has some led lamps on however. Tried a second card and it is the same. Going to buy a different brand as this sucks!s

Dear John T.,

Thank you for sharing your experience with the MSI product. We certainly value your feedback and please accept our sincerest apologies for any inconvenient experience. Many modern graphics cards have the Zero RPM feature, which doesn't turn on the graphics card fans until it reaches a certain temperature on the card itself. The fact that you mentioned a few other lights were turned on could indicate an issue. The lights are likely to be part of our EZ Debug LED feature. You can reference your manual to see which lights (CPU, Graphics Card, RAM or Boot drive). It should also be noted that if you are trying to install an 8th Generation Coffee Lake CPU, this motherboard is not compatible with that series! You will need a 300-series motherboard. We recommend double-checking all power connectors are fully seated. This includes the 24-pin Motherboard power connector and the 4+4-pin CPU power connector. Once you have ensured that connectors are fully seated, we recommend booting with a bare configuration, which means only the CPU, motherboard, power connectors, and a single stick of RAM. Lastly, you can also attempt to build the motherboard outside of the case to prevent any potential grounding issues. Also, as silly as it sounds, double check that you aren't plugging in the video cable to the motherboard instead of your graphics card. The motherboard ports are disabled when you insert a graphics card and you must use the video outputs on the GPU. If you have any further questions regarding this product or have any suggestions for improvement for us, please do not hesitate to contact us directly at usreview@msi.com and we will be more than happy to assist you. If you require further technical assistance, please feel free to contact our technical support department directly at 626.271.1004 from M to F, 9am to 6pm Pacific Standard Time.

Thanks for choosing MSI!

Buyer Beware!

Pros: none

Cons: Numerous

Other Thoughts: Buyer Beware! I purchased a MSI motherboard as a gift in December and here we are 3 weeks into February still dealing with a defective product, non-existent tech support and now a denied rebate. Rethink your options and buy something else!

5/ 5
awesome performance

Pros: rgb, supports my 32gb 3600mhz gskill out the box, runs my 7700k, ez setup.

Cons: moving up to this build from an i7-4790k @ 4.58 ghz, 2400gskill ddr3, benchmarked only 9% overall improvement, not much to warrant the 1000.00 upgrade. but it's here. so....

Other Thoughts: the lagging performance improvements since the 4th gen, doesn't make for a better upgrade. just spending more money.

I know that I didn't buy this on newegg, but some guy sold this whole rig for 500.00.

Sold good motherboard for the $$

Pros: Easy install. Worked first time. Solid performance and features.

Cons: Be sure to download your killer nick drivers and other assorted MSI apps and drivers BEFORE you build and have them on an USB ready to go. I did my build out as a fresh build on new hardware for storage and having all of my drivers ready to go helped a LOT. MS does not have Killer Nick drivers as part of the default windows 10 home build and without them you can't reach out to the internet to grab more.

XMP incompatibility induced nightmare

Pros: -SOLID board (doesn't matter very much but the board was very heavy and sturdy)
-Reinforced DIMM and PCIe slots
-Convenient fan headers
-Good looks

Cons: -I never got deep enough to test performance because of the board absolutely REFUSING to clock my ram to it's advertised speed.
-Using the GSkill Ripjaws V 2800 (2x8gb) any attempt at clocking the ram to 2800mhz left me with failed boots, multiple different post codes and overall an underperforming pc at that point.

Other Thoughts: -I had RMA'd the first board, but the second board provided identical results.
-Doing some research I found a few other users experiencing the same issue.
-MSI's latest BIOS version still dates back to November 2017 and does not solve the issue.

If you have any further questions regarding this product or have any suggestions for improvement for us, please do not hesitate to contact us directly at usreview@msi.com and we will be more than happy to assist you. There is a chance the performance issue can be caused by the CPU you are using since the Memory controller is located on the CPU itself.

Excellent Motherboard for 6th and 7th gen Intel CPUs

Pros: I bought this to replace as it turns out a defective Gigabyte motherboard. The overclocking options are amazing and pretty straightforward. Very well built and premium motherboard, and an extra plus, is that it fixed the problem I was having with the old Gigabyte motherboard. My PC was not shutting down when I went to Windows 10 Pro, start menu, and clicked "shutdown". So after a year of suffering I bought this motherboard and now everything works like a champ now. I would have liked to have seen some more USB type 3.0 type A ports but whatever, I'm not going to list that as a con because it's my personal preference

Cons: Nothing.
