This board fried my entire system. 4/9/2019 11:58:57 AM

Pros: There are none.

Cons: It fried just about all of my very expensive components.

Overall Review: The title says it all. Board overloaded, fried my PCIe slots, my RAM, and all the things connected in those areas. Radeon Sapphire 470, TridentZ Ripjaws 3200s, all fried. Only the CPU survived, and just barely. This happened roughly a year and a half into owning the board. Not worth the time or money, and I don't know if I'm ever going to buy or trust MSI after this board, especially because it happened during a time where I cant afford to replace any of these very expensive components that were ruined by my board. Absolutely tragic.

Overall disliked it 2/22/2019 2:59:11 AM

Pros: Cheap
Easy to set up
Not the worst bios

Cons: Every single bios update I've performed to date (6) broke Windows. On two updates it would refuse to boot, on one update it failed to recognize a ram stick, and on three updates video drivers stopped functioning. Each time had me spend an entire day trying to find a solution before just performing a fresh Windows install.
Support from MSI was less than helpful, every response on the issue was either a non answer or implying I downloaded the wrong update from their website, which I checked a dozen times before and after the updates out of paranoia.

Overall Review: I'm finally upgrading again and will likely not be buying a low end MSI board (or probably any MSI board). During the Intel security issue my board was the very last one to receive an update, and it took a good month before that update finally came as opposed to a few days for their high end boards.

It works for me 9/18/2017 2:31:02 PM

Pros: - Still works after 18 months
- BIOS was easy to update

Cons: - None so far

Overall Review: - You need to update BIOS if you want to get a Kaby Lake cpu in there. Bought this with an i3-6100, but recently updated to an i7-7700. Luckily, there's a lot of good guides out there for how to do it and I was able to find the right file to download from the MSI website pretty easily.

Note that I don't do much with this motherboard. I have 1 stick of RAM, 1 HDD, a cpu, gpu, and wifi adapter plugged into it and nothing else. I don't overclock, or mess around in BIOS more than I need to. If anything, this motherboard was overkill for me. If you're aiming to do more powerful tasks with this motherboard, you'd probably have a different experience than I did.

Good Until It Stopped Working 6/27/2017 4:09:44 PM

Pros: - Easy to set up
- Easy to get to BIOS
- Good price

Cons: After a year the motherboard died on me while playing a game. Which caused me a ton of trouble like buying a whole new PSU, thinking it was the issue but it really wasn't. In the end I threw away over $100 and too much time.

Overall Review: If you're looking for a long term solution this is not for you. If you would like short term go for it, but don't expect it to last.
