Great IO and very good instructions. CPU clamp was a little flimsy though.

Just your cheap average motherboard. Does the job, no complaints.

LAWISON 21 points 16 months ago

I didn't have the usual processor lying about to flash the bios on a B150 or H110 board, I just got the cheapest B250 chipset at the time, which happened to be the MSI PRO-VD MATX. It is a pretty standard board, nothing fancy - except for the armoured x16 PCIE port which was a nice touch. I don't use the system fan header as my case has a manual control for fans, but from where it is, I imagine that unless you're only using a rear exhaust fan, you'll have some cable tidying issues there! It has a white LED on the upper left of the motherboard that has software controls - you can make it breath, flash, stay on constantly etc. There are 3 red LEDs on the top right that tell you if you have a posting issue which could come in handy should you have any issues. My only complaint for this motherboard personally, would be that it is dark brown, but that's just me being fussy. It gets 4 stars for the placement on the system header (for people that use it!)

Good mobo. It's nice that even budget boards are coming with debug LEDs and reinforced PCIe slots. Only one system fan header which is annoying, I had to use a splitter. Who uses only one fan??

Cheapest MOBO that I didn't have to flash BIOS on.

I believe this was around $50-$60 by the time I got this Motherboard. However, this motherboard is great for me to upgrade the CPU and add an additional DDR4 Ram Stick. I can upgrade this into a Core i7-7700, if Intel does not discontinue the 7th Gen line-up.

Fairly basic mobo. But I liked the fact that it hes an m.2 slot.

Really easy motherboard to work with, with a manual that makes a lot of sense. Only 1 system fan header but thats alright with me because I am only using 1 fan. Metal PCI slot for extra protection against things such as traveling with a PC (not that I will be doing that).

This motherboard appears quite brown in pictures. The quick start guide is pretty good. The I/O shield didn't go in particularly well. Otherwise it's a fine motherboard. Comes with a free mouse on newegg sometimes.
