MSI H87-G43 LGA 1150 Intel H87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX High Performance CF Intel Motherboard

Pros: I liked the layout of the board.

Cons: Bought the motherboard the week of Feb 23, 2013 and other parts for an HTPC. Installed Win7 and it's been on since, except during hibernation.

At 5:30pm on May 8th my PC was shutting down since it had recorded the Simpsons when I heard a loud spark and saw a flame emerge from the top of the motherboard (I have a case that I can see through the top for exhaust fans). A few seconds later another flame emerged and smoke with it. The smell was really bad.

After inspection, the motherboard blew a capacitor near the CPU. Awful. I hope nothing else is fried and that MSI honors their warranty.
