Good Board 5/17/2013 11:59:04 AM

Pros: Bought this board back in 2009 for a new low mid-range build and I'm still using it today!
I have never had a major problem with this thing.

Cons: The board held up well for several years, but the tech has just moved along. I will probably re-purpose this into a media box for the living room.

Overall Review: Worked well and looked cool. The price was great back when I bought it. I will definitely consider an upgraded/modern version of this board.

Alright Motherboard, but what the hell newegg? 11/25/2009 8:25:04 PM

Pros: It boots.

The newer BIOS releases fix important issues that would have otherwise kept many people, including myself, from getting this feature rich motherboard.

Overall this board is given mainly good reviews by tech testing sites and the only thing that was holding it back when it came out was the buggy BIOS but as I said, that's been fixed.

Cons: Board feels a bit flimsy because most of the device ports appear to be only stapled onto the board instead of being glued also, so be careful not to put too much stress on the ports when you're plugging in cables if you don't want to risk snapping something off.

Overall Review: Newegg has just dropped the price insanely for this board in only one week from about $140 with shipping to only $69 with free shipping! I paid $140!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's a $70 price cut! $70!!

The final price with the mail-in rebate is only 49.99!!! but according to other buyers you have to wait months for it to process and then it might not even come so this part is not a big deal for me.

I know it's thanksgiving week so there will be huge discounts for products but it doesn't even say anywhere that the price drop for this one will end after thanksgiving week is over, like it does for other discounted products!

Plus, why aren't there huge price drops for other Socket 775 boards that are in the same price range or league as this one was before?!

I want my $70 back!


*head asplodes!*

Seriously, can I have my money back?

Great board! 10/18/2009 10:55:34 PM

Pros: This is such a great board! Love everything about it. Over-clocking was a breeze, and i have never tried to over clock before this bored. Everything runs very cool inside my case. All the blue leds on the board look awesome as well. The clear cmos in the back also is very nice, along with support of up to 5 - 3pin case fans.

Cons: None, great board!

Overall Review: MSI mobos are great and easy to work with, this is my 3rd one and wont be my last.

Pros: Great board. Setup was smooth and standard, all drives detected, just set the clock and go. The large copper heat pipes are impressive and effective, even my computer illiterate mechanic house mate took notice.

Cons: The clear cmos button near the usb ports in the back is convenient for OCers, but I have nightmares of hitting it with the system on while fumbling blindly to plug in a usb device (unless it is disabled during this time, but I had a friend fry a board in a similar manner once).

Overall Review: Bought this board open box to replace a fried P6N SLI. Purchased open box, and was pleasantly surprised when it came with nearly all the retail accessories, though the I/O plate didn't match up. Ordered on a Sunday, arrived a day ahead of schedule on Wednesday. As always, a pleasure doing business with newegg.

Pros: I loved this board, I had it for more than a year. This board is great for overclocking especially if you are just begining. I OC my C2Q Q6600 from 2.4 to 3.1 without touching anything and the board changed everything accordingly, it changed the voltage and the memory ratio to match my OC, and it was very accurate.

Cons: I did not have any problems with it so far
