Very good for the money

Pros: Plenty of room, sturdy, easy to navigate on the inside, good PSU. Had no problems with my setup (major stats below).

Cons: Very heavy, but at least it gives a sturdy impression :)

Overall Review: Q6600 @ 3.2GHz, 8800 GTX OC'd, 320 gb, 4x1 gb 800MHz RAM

Most Critical Review

OC hyped board that doesn't OC E8500

MSI X48C Platinum LGA 775 Intel X48 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Nice layout, good cooling, BIOS has plenty of OC'ing options (if only they worked), good sound, lan, and many nifty solutions.

Cons: I bought this mobo with a E8500, planning on OC'ing it to about 4.2 GHz. Unfortunately, the BIOS shows the speed i OC too, but when i boot up Vista (or XP), it shows stock speed. The frequency does not stick. Read about my travails on the MSI forums. Someone else on that forum was having the same problem with the X48, but that got fixed with a new BIOS. MSI techs answer: "Use half a day and a pretty penny to send it to us, and we'll send you another in a few weeks." It's obviously a BIOS problem. DO NOT BUY until they fix the BIOS if you plan on OC'ing. /end rant

Overall Review: E8500@3.16 GHz, 2x2 gb OCZ Platinum 1333, 750gb+1tb hard drives, Tagan ITZ 700w PSU, XFX GTX 260 My previous card was the MSI P35 Platinum which overclocked like nothing else. If the OC'ing problem is fixed I would give top marks, but right now I'm concidering RMA and buy a different brand

Love it!

Pros: Had an 8800 gtx before this one and it's an amazing difference. Currently playing AOC with everything on max/high, and usually run at 45-80 FPS. Like the placement of the powerconnectors. Very quiet too.

Cons: None

Pros: Loving it! Runs everything I throw at it without problem. Even OCs a little bit further. GoW is running with all settings on high @1680*1050 without lagging.

Cons: Absolutely none.
