    Nice looking board. No problems, posted the first try. Running strong.

    Great mobo - looks sick, too. Huge problem with it is the location of the CPU power connector. It was literally JUST far enough that I couldn't reach the cable to it. I had to wrap the wire under my PCI cards to reach across and plug it in properly. Plenty of space on it but no physical auto OC or BIOS reset buttons buttons. I just personally find them convenient. BIOS interface is nice and easy to use, and the mobo's layout is generic and simple.

    This is a great motherboard other than the drivers they send with it. You have to have a second computer that can access the internet to get updated drivers because the drivers sent with it are broken (at least for me) and wouldn't allow me to use my Ethernet cable. Once I finally got the new drivers put onto it the board worked great. No complaints other than that.

    Really nice looking motherboard with plenty of features, pretty dated now but MSI have consistently shown me quality.

    Good overall, but just noticed it is missing a screw on a heat sink?? I have it reattached with a twist tie covered in electrical tape to prevent shorting. I will be contacting MSI about this.
