Great motherboard, as anticipated from MSI 6/1/2018 6:28:41 PM

Pros: - Is not difficult to work with, has the basic features most builders would want
- BIOS is fine to navigate, overclocking features do their job

Cons: - Has USB 3.0 on the back panel, but not on the board for front panel. As a builder, this was quite strange to me.

Great for Budget Build/First Time Builders! 7/23/2017 10:22:32 AM

Pros: MSI is a brand that I trust and have had extremely good dealings with.
Good for budget builds.
Got it for a little over $50 years ago and haven't had the slightest problem.
Use it for gaming: Payday 2, Total War: Warhammer, SimCity, Witcher 3, Civilization 6. All on the highest settings. (have a Nvidia 1060 and 5th gen i5 processor)

Cons: Honestly cannot think of a single one other than if you do go to upgrade to another mother board, you'd have to buy another operating system to go with it. (not a reason to dis this product though)

Overall Review: I would recommend this to anyone and everyone who is beginning to get into building PCs or doesn't want/can't go all out on their first build.

Not good 10/13/2016 4:08:06 PM

Pros: Cheap

Cons: All USB and PS/2 ports never worked (I checked in the BIOS to be sure). I was saved by the USB connector going to the case. Also, the fan CPU makes a weird noise when in the BIOS (or simply not in Windows) -dunno if the problem is the fan or the mobo though.

Overall Review: Maybe I was not lucky. Normally I love MSI products but this one was a big fail. Maybe I should have returned it... but who's gonna use that time and trouble for such a cheap item?

Board crashed at 6 weeks 6/2/2016 12:18:53 PM

Pros: Inexpensive

Cons: This is the 2nd H81M motherboard to fail for me. My computer came with one, and it crashed. I replaced the motherboard, it worked for 6 weeks, then crashed. It worked just long enough to surpass the 30 day warrany =P

Overall Review: Based on other reviews, it seems like these are prone to failure. Maybe you will get lucky and it will be an OK board at a reasonable price. Or maybe you will end up like me...typing from a different computer.

Fine until it stopped working after only 5 months 4/18/2016 5:30:24 PM

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: Cheap
Reliability. Military grade? They contracts usually do go to the cheapest bidder!

Overall Review: When I turned it on today, the computer did not start, but instead made a pop followed by a burning smell. An IC near the lithium battery burned after less than 5 months of occasional use. I have been building computers for more than 20 years, and this is the first time I had a motherboard fail within the warranty period. We'll see how good the MSI warranty is. I just noticed the warranty information that came with this motherboard was for Australia even though I purchased it from Newegg.

Well, I just received an email from MSI stating that they have shipped a replacement. I am happy with the quick turnaround, even though the shipping was 1/3 the cost of the motherboard.

Pros: Great dirt cheap mobo
Should fit all needs of someone on a tight budget

Cons: Doesn't play nice with an attempted Pentium K OC (bootloop or BSOD)
Doesn't have USB 3.0 headers

Overall Review: For the price, there are far few better mobos out there, just be wary of using this to OC a Pentium.
