MSI Z77A-GD65 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: When it worked was stable enough, but that only lasted about a month.

Cons: After a month began to crash, would turn off computer and when I turned it on, would power up, and shut off repeatedly. Called tech support and they were actually pretty rude, the tech even went as far as telling me I didn't know what I was talking about and the board was fine. Updated the BIOS and even got a new video card (Also MSI) and it seemed to fix the problem. A month later the problems started again, called support and this new tech told me to switch put the video card again, because there was no way it was the board. So I did, paid shipping and everything, it didn't fix the problem. The overclocking button made things worse. Finally got a tech that actually did research and had me switch to the back up BIOS because the first one was bad, said keep the board it would be fine, he also said I need 1.65 volt ram to run the board not 1.5. this process took a couple of months. The board ran fine for about a year, then yesterday a message came up saying "Over clocking Failed resting to old configuration", didn't have it enabled...and the computer won't boot up now. This board for me at least is high maintenance and not worth the time. MSI customer service is a joke and I'm never buying from them again, even the video cad crash and I went to another maker. If you stay with them on mother board, do you research carefully, they used to be quality, but I guess that's in the past.
