Pros: great motherboard. i knew nothing about building a computer except what i learned from a few youtube videos. i got the computer built in about 2 hours and was shocked it worked. msi z97,intel 4690; 2 hd, 2 dvd; corsair psu. anyway it has worked great 24/7 for the last 2 weeks.

Cons: none. very nice and uncomplicated.

Overall Review: looks good

no complaints

Pros: nice layout, labeled well and looks good

Cons: none so far

Overall Review: used this board for my second build and have had no problems. my first build i used the less expensive msi z97 pc mate which also worked out very good. if i have any problems in the future, i will write a follow up review.

Pros: solid mounting/easy installation.

Cons: may not be suitable for over clockers

Overall Review: much better mounting system than stock intel i5 cooler. it has metal screws and a back plate for secure installation. the heat sink is also larger than the stock one. highly recommend.
