Does not support i5-2500K5/4/2012 7:52:56 PM

Pros: Good board with solid features. THX sounds great.

Cons: Does not support i5-2500k.

Overall Review: According to MSI site, The 2500k is not supported. It will boot up and run great, but you can't overclock it!!! It will always stay at 3.3ghz. I have EIST, Turbo Boost, Power Technology, and Overspeed protection disabled. CPUz shows multiplier 33, but the BIOS says 40. Hope BIOS update will fix this. I never would have thought that this board would not support this processor.

Great Case....But7/7/2010 6:59:45 AM

Pros: Small A lot of room fits any graphics card..with some modification(removing 1 fan) Great LAN case!

Cons: Fans are worthless (Does not move much air) Small Black Screws (Be Careful not to strip them)

Overall Review: After putting my system together heat was my biggest concern. CPU was 47c and HDD was 46c. I did not feel any air coming out of the case. I changed the two 120mm fans with Cooler Master fans (19db 90cfm) and the rear fan with an Antec 92mm. Now everything is 10degrees cooler and much happier. I also messed with the wires to allow more air flow. Modular PSU is the best thing you can get for this case. My system: AMD Phenom II x4 945 (95watt) MSI 890gx OCZ AMD Black edition DDR3 1600 2x XFX 5770's Corsair 650watt PSU

Awesome card10/10/2008 5:16:13 AM

Pros: This is a great card!!! I originally had a MSI OC 8800gt and decided to switch to this card. This card gave me a 1000 point boost in 3dmark vantage! This card is on par and sometimes better than ATI's 4850. has a great review of this card. To me this is the best bang for the buck. It outperforms ATI 4850 and even beats the 9800GTX!! Get this card it is totally worth it.

Cons: None I can think of.
