    Seems to work fine out of the box. I like the MSI BIOS, though it's a bit slow to boot, it looks nice and is easy to navigate, would switch to Coreboot if I could though. I try to update the BIOS 3 times, bricks the motherboard every time. I re-flash to the old BIOS, it works. If MSI wasn't shipping broken BIOSes, I would rate this highly, but I don't see how I am going to upgrade my CPU without BIOS updates.

    It's a good board, although I didn't have a choice because I wanted my black and red build. I did have some trouble with PBO being borked by AMD in a bios update and I had to use a special utility to flash back to an earlier bios because AMD decided to block flashing back to bios' before 1.70(?). Anyways it's served me well and any complaints I do have are AMD's fault. Mystic Light works fine, all my RGB gear syncs well.

    Good motherboard plenty of fan headers but the cpu_fan header does not allow you to control the fan on the cooler. Good for beginning overclock and looks good.

    Awesome visual design, lots of expansion options. Comes with a red and black I/O shield too.

    Board works amazing. The bios is easy to navigate, and overclocking is real easy on it. Plus the words “Gaming Plus” written on the bottom middle actually light up when the computer is on which is a nice feature I haven’t seen anyone else mention before.

    Great motherboard, VERY sturdy. Has everything I need for my build. Heatsinks are HUGE, make sure to check clearance if you're planning to put a cooler on the top of your case.

    from completed build Tau Manifesto

    I chose this mobo because the m-atx variant was £3 cheaper at the time of purchasing so I decided to splash out on an ATX motherboard. 4 DIMM slots are ideal for me if I decide to run quad channel memory but for now 2x8gb sticks are perfect. BIOS was very easy to navigate and to put a mild overclock on the CPU and RAM. Only issue was the fact that the guides on the io shield are actually quite sharp and I ended up cutting my finger. Won’t revoke a star for that though.

    from completed build Budget Editing and Gaming Rig

    Haven't had any problems with it so far, power delivery is good enough to keep my 1700 at 3.6 stable. Not many bells and whistles but it's cheap so that's fine. Color scheme is dumb though, if you're not going to have rgb you should just have neutral colors.
