APS - Active Phase Switching

Active Phase Switching, or APS, technology is an intelligent design that helps to save energy on MSI's motherboards. The underlying idea is to switch off the power supply as soon as no electricity is needed, and when the system needs more resources again, APS will automatically adjust electricity supply accordingly. APS will automatically detect your processor's loading at any given time and save energy accordingly. This is only possible by means of a very advanced power controlling technology. Other than software-based solutions, APS technology stands out from MSI's own research. The specially developed IC chip can operate automatically depending on the demands of the power supply, which is to reduce the total power usage.


Z77A-G45

Pros: Has been extremely reliable.
Easy to install.
Easy to update.
Easy to overclock.
2400 DDR3 works flawlessly.
Overclocked Intel i5-3570K works flawlessly.
Overclocked nVIDIA GTX 970 works flawlessly.
Great value and sufficient for the vast majority of people.
Not a single problem in 1-1/2 years (and I have pushed this system hard).

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Unless this motherboard is missing a key feature that you absolutely need, it will not disappoint you.

1 out of 5 eggsWhat happened to you, MSI?

Pros: Good CPU and graphics performance for the price. Windows 8 native compatible. Ultra fast UEFI boot when a solid state is present (Im using a EVO 840 SSD)

Cons: Since I bought this motherboard, it been having problems detecting the PCI-e cards including video cards. This intermittent problem is really a headache and I had to troubleshoot the computer until it detects again. Firmware and drivers has been updated to the latest, checked ALL the power supply voltages and swap the pci e cards to other slots. CMOS has been cleared. The problem still persisted.

I sent the board to RMA service, and after a few weeks the problem started again. I had it, I'm done =(

Sorry MSi, I wont buy a motherboard from you again, until you resolve these issues.

I cannot complain with the customer support from MSi, they really responded on time my emails and RMA service was fast and good. But with this motherboard design, what happened to you MSI?

4 out of 5 eggsSolid Board

Pros: A good solid board with great performance.

Cons: Didn't realize that it arrived with defective RAM slots.

Other Thoughts: It finally quit after almost three years of constant running. I didn't realize that two of the four RAM slots were defective until I went to upgrade to 16GB 2 years later. I figured that the two sticks I had were just in the incorrect arrangement. Board finally failed last night, dead USB port and unable to recognize hard drives after reboot.

1 out of 5 eggsGreat product! For about five minutes.

Pros: This MSI military class 3 motherboard was a beauty right out of the box! It was pretty, it was black and blue, it had a fan on it. Gee willikers this thing was nifty! The installation took no time at all and the included instructions while not needed were straightforward and easy to use. However, this is about as far as the pros go on this particular product.

Cons: This motherboard ran on my new computer build for a grand total of five minutes, before dieing and becoming unresponsive. In a later attempt to check that it was in fact the motherboard that broke and not one of my other new parts, this motherboard literally caught fire. Not a grand blaze mind you, but there was fire, in my computer case. No bueno MSI. No bueno.

Other Thoughts: Newegg was helpful enough returning the other parts of that build as I had no use for them without a working motherboard, oddly enough though they refused to refund me for the board, claiming I had kept the SLI bridge for myself, when this motherboard didn't even come with one.

It's unfortunate that my experience with this board was so poor, when I had finally acquired the funds for a new motherboard I found this one out of stock, so I purchased a military grade 4 z87-g55. Which appeared to be more or less the exact same board. That one however worked much better, for about 6 months until last week. Now in about half a year i've gotten two broken MSI motherboards, and my Asus motherboard from my first build 8 years ago still works wonderfully. I'm hoping I can get in touch with MSI as I am led to believe they have a 3 year manufactures warranty on their motherboards.

2 out of 5 eggsLasted just over a year

Pros: When it worked, it worked. Features are nice and the price is right.

Cons: It lasted me about a year and a half.
Problems, problems, problems.

Other Thoughts: I OC'd to 4.2Ghz and then clocked back down to 3.5Ghz with my Intel Core I7 3770k. This all was fantastic until I updated my BIOS. When I updated my BIOS there was a problem with the OC settings, well, good thing I didn't use them anymore.

However, that didn't stop it from screwing it up. It got caught into an infinite boot state. The reason why it would start up and shut down is because the mobo keeps thinking my OC settings are invalid (which I'm not even using) and resetting itself. Even weirder than that, a gentle tap decides whether or not it works or decides to restart

Normally a pull of the CMOS and resetting the BIOS is enough, but not this time.

I fully intend to RMA this product but it has been a huge pain in my rear-end.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

We apologize for the issues that you are having with this product.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Board

Pros: Quality components. Low heat dissipation. Solid and reliable.

Cons: I can't get enough SATA ports!

Other Thoughts: Using this board in a Debian Linux file server I built thats been up and running for 1.5+ years 24/7. The exceptions: when I moved homes once it had to be powered down or before I had a UPS in my old home and had a small number of power outages.

1 out of 5 eggsDead after less than 90 days

Pros: Looks nice and worked well for under 90 days.

Cons: Everything was working nicely until the mobo capaitor popped. I bought this on 2/24/14. Piece of junk died on 4/15/14. I kept EVERYTHING at stock so there was no overclocking or voltage changes. They brag about this crappo having solid capacitors and all but it shows that MSI is using false advertising.

Other Thoughts: this bad mobo/i7 2700k, 16GB DDR1333 Gskill Ripjawx, GTX 760 in SLI, intel320 SSD, Samsung 840 SSD, Corsair H80 CPU kit, Corsair 750W PSU, Antec 1200 v3.

I'm looking for another company at this point. I used to use MSI mobo's and GPU's. Not anymore/

3 out of 5 eggsWas good while it worked

Pros: Easy BIOS. Stable. Nice layout.

Cons: About 4 months into light use, with never overcloking and being kept in a cool room, HDMI output started failing. Images are washed out and sound is dead. Tried everything. Narrowed it down to the boards HDMI port. Did not expect it to fail so quickly. So much for this board. Time to RMA. Painful.

4 out of 5 eggsgreat

Pros: Amazing sound considering its onboard. I love the one click overclock aswell. Boots with my 250gb samsung ssd in about 5 seconds after the splash screen. Overall good buy

Cons: unfortunatly the board was warped and was not straight out of the package. Not a big deal once installed and mounted on to your chassis. Still its not a pleasant sight of a curved board.
