This review is from: MSI 970A-G43 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
I do not play games, just like to have the ability should I ever decide to. This MB is VERY nice. the UEFI BIOS is very easy to navigate. It has an auto overclocking feature which I have on, and have not had ANY issues at all. I am running a FX-6200 on it and have a no issues what so ever. I was running Windows 7 pro x64 on it, but recently replaced that with Windows 8.1 x64 and turned on the windows 8 features of the mb. It POSTs very quickly and without any issues at all. I am totally in love with this MB, Everything works as it should. Very stable, and no complaints from wither of the OS's. Oh, and I at one point had it dual booting to sever different distros of Linux namely Ubuntu, Fedora, and Kali. All worked flawlessly with it.
None what so ever. Very well laid out and very stable.
Great MB. Second MB from MSI for me, and both still work flawlessly. I am a huge fan of MSI now. I did have an Asus mb before my last MSI and it had issues from day one. I know ASUS is a great mb manufacturer, so it was just my board. I also realize that there are going to be some MSI boards that have problems, but not with mine. Incidentally, they both are on all the time. One is a an AD, DHCP, and DNS server.
