Good Board 7/12/2008 6:03:55 AM

Pros: Plugged everything in and it booted right up. Very stable with overclocking E2180 from 2.0 Gz to 2.75 so far. Will try to get 3.0 soon. MSI updates the drivers AND bios online from their website and through XP without having to use DOS (for bios update).

Cons: Onboard harware SATA ports 6 and 7 (Sil 4723) would not recognize my Raid 0 array on cold boot in the morning. Would work the rest of the day but I hated having to press reset to get it to read raid array. Switched to SATA 1 and SATA 2 ports and works perfectly (had to re-install windows!). Bios slightly confusing compared to some others in regards to overclocking. ON board sound microphone difficult to get working and was weak even with mic boost. Switched back to my regular creative X-fi card (supposidly same thing as onboard) and worked great.

Overall Review: Corsair Sli compatible memory 2 gigs (still running XP), 2 Western Digital Corvair 150's in RAID 0 (fast!!!), DVD drive, Dual core Pentium with 1 mb cache, 9600GT. This board is only PCIexpress 1.0 compliant. Right now microsoft flight sim is the only game that you notice a big difference in frame rates from PCIe 2.0 which is twice as fast and more expensive on the newer boards. I will use and upgrade this board for several years before games catch up to it's potential with 3 PCI express 16's and one 8X able to be used for video at the same time, and ability to use quad core.

Ok motherboard 7/10/2008 6:12:17 AM

Pros: Lots of slots and pretty straight forward. Didn't have any trouble trying to get my ram and video card in. The XFI sound is also a nice bonus.

Cons: When I tried to install vista it kept freezing during the installation. It took me a day or two to try and figure out the problem. Turns out something (don't know what..) in the BIOS was preventing vista from installing. So you just have to update the BIOS (go to MSI's website). The sound card is also set to disabled by default in the BIOS, so you might have to enable that.

Overall Review: Overall this is a good motherboard for the price.

Works 7/8/2008 1:27:51 PM

Pros: So i got this Motherboard 2 days after buy, because newegg is THE BEST. Other than that i have found the board to be okay, nothing special since i cant get my q6600 to a stable overclock of 3.0 GHz with the 1.2 bios, im going to try to flash the 1.3 later today. Though im sure the overclocking is due to my lack of knowledge on the subject. So its not anything i could take an egg away for.

Cons: The overclocking. MSI's lack of intructions of flashing bios. I had to go in the help section of their website to find the correct instruction on making a dos boot on a flash drive, with vista.

Overall Review: Would of liked if MSI could of used the black and blue like the other distributers.

Pros: Great board, needs to be flashed to latest BIOS to support overclocking some of processors on the market, (Using E7900, overclocked to 3.8 stable.)

Cons: First board I received was DOA. Newegg was very unpleasent about the DOA return, ended up buying a new board and refund the DOA so I would have the computer up and running within the week.
