Pros: Overclocks to 4.6 w/ a vcore of 1.390. No matter what the voltage, a single core will throw errors at 4.7 or higher clock. Temps stay around 25c on OC while idle. Core temps hover around 77c under Prime95 with Corsair 115i.
Other Thoughts: A number of sources have pointed out this chip is difficult to OC past 4.5/4.6.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Overclocks well. Plethora of tuning options. After the initial hiccup, worked perfectly until it one day stopped working at all (about 3 months after purchase). So lets talk about RMA process. On the bright side, RMA was approved and once they got my old board, turn around was about 5 days. But that's all that is good about the process, well that and at least they honored their warranty.
Cons: Out the box, I had an issue with it making it past POST due to the BIOS not supporting Nvidia 10 series GFX. With a little research realized that an update was needed and same resolved POST issues. The BIOS was the original from MSI (12 months ago. To be fair, this may have been an original board that hadn't been sold yet by Newegg. About 3 months after purchase, the board would not power up. LEDs on the board would turn on (not attached fans though) but that was it. After confirming PSU worked, I RMA'd the board. Though turn around was quick, there was no feed back from MSI - I don't know if they fixed my board or I got a refurb. I was emailed a link with a progress scale, but it didn't change the entire time they had it until after they shipped it back. i also was never informed of what was wrong; but I am thankful they covered it under warranty. The new one has been working for the past week just fine. At least I didn't have to update BIOS again (hmm).READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: they do their job, lights up red and moves air as spec'd. Not too noisy overall and runs like new (bought it 3 months ago).
Cons: NoneREAD FULL REVIEW
