Pros: The alleged features and layout seem to be well thought out. The manual is easy to read and the packaging is high quality.
Cons: MSI has to be one of the worst companies that I have dealt with since I built my first system in 1986. I received two motherboards and both were DOA. Kudos to Newegg for their excellent service and keeping me informed during the RMA process. That makes a world of difference between a great company and a poor one. Only took 13 days in total for the whole RMA process.
Overall Review: It took forever to get someone to respond to my RMA request at MSI. I shipped the board immediately and it took over a month to get it back with no communication. I purposefully placed my own jumper switches,CPU cover and plastic wrapping. When I received the mobo, absolutely nothing had changed except that they shoved it into an old worn out box with no padding. No explanation of what they had done and nothing was fixed.
I am Systems Engineer with almost 10 years of experience. This is no way to run a business.
