Stable when working, fast, loads of features, 3 year warranty!
This is a really serious board built for the hardcore. I consider myself an enthusiast but at the end of the day I’ll take stability and dependability over performance any day. So the giant MILITARY CLASS III mil certified nonsense staring at me from the box put my mind at ease. I knew that there may be times in life I may have 99 problems but this motherboard shouldn’t be one. Needless to say when I went to power it up one day and it got stuck on the debug code 55 powercycle of death. I sat there staring at the gold certificate that comes in every box, scratching my head asking myself why would they make it seem like this board will take a bullet for you but in reality it can’t even deal with the mild climate of southern California. Perhaps this wasn’t the battlefield they had in mind when they threw some arbitrary certification on it. Maybe it’s my fault for not working it hard enough, for not overclocking it and for running it at stock speeds. Maybe it got bored and decided to kill itself. Who knows? Begrudgingly I’ve purchased another because I needed this beast up and running ASAP instead of waiting around weeks to get it warrantied through the manufacturer. Short of MSI refunding the cost of the second board I would never recommend another MSI product to anyone nor shall I ever put a component they make in another build. It’s probably just my luck but I still feel I’ve been done wrong.
