Most Critical Review
MSI H61M-P31/W8 LGA 1155 Intel H61 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
MSI H61M-P31/W8 LGA 1155 Intel H61 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Pros: Good build quality. Low power usage. decent warranty.

Cons: Does not detect my 1600MHz RAM at said speed. the max speed it will detect at is 1333MHz and no more. Flashed to latest BIOS and no difference. Disappointing. Documentation for connecting the front panel of the case to the MOBO is horrid. Been building PC's for years, and I have never seen documents this bad or low detailed.
