Pros: I have an i5 in it, and it is working wonderfully. I like the BIOS, easy to understand and make tweaks or change settings. Plenty of ports for my need. Has Crossfire and SLI support, and comes with an SLI bridge.
MSI AMD HD7790
8 GB DDR3 1600
Overall Review: I looked up the mobo on the MSI website and saw that it can handle the Xeon E3-1230, so I'm gonna replace the i5 with that and hopefully it will perform even more fantastically.
Pros: Plays wow at 90+ fps in most places, haven't had any problems with graphics. I love the MSI Afterburner tool that comes with it. I am very pleased with MSI products.
Overall Review: I couldn't see anything the first week I had it... but then again, I had conjectivitis
Pros: The processor has been working great for the past month, but I think I'm going to upgrade my processor to a Xeon E3-1230 and put this i5 into a H61 and run a server with it.
Cons: Calculated the meaning of life as 42.0000000000000000000000000000000000000000002
Pros: Working great so far, I'm going to buy some more to bump my computer up to 16GB
Cons: PCB color wasn't fun.
Overall Review: Could have better packaging
