5 out of 5 eggsGood Bargain Board - Know What You're Ordering

Pros: - Good deal for Budget system or light duty server.
- MSI quality

Cons: - Not a ton of bells and whistles.
- MSI makes solid products, for the price this board obviously is going to use some cheaper components than its more expensive brethren.

Other Thoughts: Using with a Celeron chip to power FreeNas server. Works great.

1 out of 5 eggsHelp please

Pros: N/A

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: I have everything where it should be I have built a computer from broken ones before and I bought this board to build a computer from all new parts. It will turn on for about 8 seconds then turn off for 4 seconds then it repeats the process. I have had it for about 16 days and I work on it when ever I can but I have finally given up on trying to solve it. I give it a 1 cause I can't seem to get it to work.

Pros: GOOD PRICE FOR ATX FORM FACTOR MOTHERBOARD

Cons: BUT D.O.A DIDNT WORK BOOTS FOR 5 SECS AND GOES DEAD WONT EVER BUY MSI BRAND AGAIN I;VE HEARD ENOUGH ABOUT THEM AND THIER CHEAP PRODUCTS WOULD'NT RECOMMEND THIER PRODUCTS TO FUTURE BUYERS

Other Thoughts: MOST ITEMS COME DEFECTIVE SENT BACK FOR A REPLACEMENT HOPE THE NEXT ONE WORKS BUT I WONT BUY AGAIN

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

We apologize for the issues that you are having with this product.
The symptom you've encountered is caused by bent pins, see below for the correct installation procedures (shown in the user's manual as well).

Proper CPU installation procedures:
1. Open metal cage first by releasing lever without removing the plastic cover.
2. Insert processor into the socket.
3. Close the metal cage and secure the lever, plastic cover will come off automatically.
Note: Never remove the plastic cap first.

In order to replace this motherboard, we will charge you a $45 to process a replacement.
Please feel free to get in touch with us to proceed with this OOW RMA request by calling our tech support team directly at 626.271.1004 for assistance during regular business hours from M to F, 9am to 6pm Pacific Time, or you can email us at usreview@msi.com, thank you.

Best Regards,

5 out of 5 eggsGood Motherboard

Pros: - Has really good value
- Some overclocking features
- B75 chipset has enough power for what I need
- Lots of system fan connectors
- Came with M-Connector
- BIOS looks nice
- Color-coded I/O shield

Cons: - The main power plug on my PSU won't fully plug in to the 24 pin connector on the board no matter how hard I push, and the latch didn't click
- Front panel audio connector won't completely go in either
- No onboard buzzer (a lot of MSI boards do)
- Only came with BIOS v10.2 out of the box (v10.2 was made in April 2012)

Other Thoughts: I hesitated when I saw some bad reviews of this board on NewEgg, but I still went with this board because of the value. Thankfully mine worked perfectly. Hopefully it will last a few years. I'm overall impressed with this board.

5 out of 5 eggsGood basic motherboard

Pros: Good, attractive layout. Nice color scheme. This runs very nicely with all Intel HDGraphics 2500/4000 integrated CPUs. Reasonable overclocking options. Very stable BIOS, but make sure to do an update as soon as possible before installation of the O/S to ensure stability.

Cons: None worth mentioning.

Other Thoughts: Be sure to note that there is only one 6Gbps SATAIII port. Also, you will need a USB3 header cable to get from USB3 mobo to your front panel. I do recommend a full 8-pin connector from PS to the CPU for optimal power & performance.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Got it fast, included an adequate amount of standoffs/screws.

Cons: First power-on and it just would turn off after about 5 seconds and repeat. I blamed everything else changing the RAM, then the PS, then finally the switches.

Other Thoughts: I sent it back today and hope to receive a replacement board that works. These things happen I will keep this updated to how the new board performs.

4 out of 5 eggsGood basic board for Windows 7+, less so for XP

Pros: Inexpensive entry-level mobo that does a lot for its price.
Military Class parts for long life, Ivy Bridge support.
Works with Linux.

Cons: Intel chipset lacks USB 3.0 support for Windows XP.
No eSATA port on the rear I/O panel.
Limited overclocking ability if you need that.

Other Thoughts: Windows 7 users might give 5 eggs, but those with Windows XP only 2 or 3 because of lack of USB 3.0 support. I'll say 4 eggs, as I use it with multiple versions of Windows and Linux but am annoyed by the limited support for XP.

Things to consider:

(1) Intel chipset/USB 3.0: Windows 7+ is not a problem, but if you are among the millions using XP you only get USB 2.0 speeds unless you go to the extra expense of finding and installing a USB 3.0 PCIe add-on card or hub with its own host controller(s) and driver. Intel's rather brusque reply to inquiries:
"The Intel® USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller Driver is not supported in Windows* XP or Windows* Vista. For these operating systems, make sure (to)....reconfigure the USB 3.0 ports to function as USB 2.0 ports using the native Windows* EHCI driver.
Shame on Intel for leaving so many users unsupported - other outfits like Renesas, ASMedia and AMD do support USB 3.0 in XP.

(2) With XP, when using USB 3.0 thumb drives in USB 3.0 ports, I found that some thumb drives may work there at USB 2.0 speeds or somewhat faster, while other brands may not work there at all but will in USB 2.0 ports (this happened with both front and rear ports). With Windows 7, all USB 3 and 2 ports work OK.

(3) The UEFI BIOS can be set to install an operating system in either IDE or AHCI mode (via SATA Mode in Integrated Peripherals), but for Windows XP using AHCI requires making an extra driver disk. IDE mode makes installing XP simpler, but then you cannot set SATA ports to be hot-pluggable, which AHCI mode does allow. Otherwise, with IDE mode, some port expander cards can support this feature.

(4) During a PC build, care is needed when attaching the mConnectors to the JFP1 & JFP2 front panel headers for the power switch/LED/reset switch cables: the mConnectors are very small plastic wafers that slide onto the mobo pins, and then the front panel cables plug onto them - the problem is that the mobo pins have blunt tips rather than tapered, so they tend to push the female mConnector pins right out the other end (they can be re-inserted into the wafers but do not lock).
* Thanks to MSI tech support for quickly sending me replacements.

(5) On boot-up the UEFI BIOS splash screen only displays for less than 1 second, too short to read the instructions for entering the BIOS or selecting a boot drive. You need foreknowledge and fast reactions to be able to hit the right keys, or hit the keyboard's Pause key.

(6) The motherboard came with an old and flaky (erratic cursor movement) BIOS version 10.2, which immediately needed to be updated to the current 10.8.

(7) The variety of expansion slots used (3 PCI, one PCIe 3.0x16, one PCIe 2x16, and 2 PCIe 2x1) may be appreciated by those who plan to use a few older PCI cards, but as time moves on many users will probably prefer fewer PCI and more PCIe slots.

5 out of 5 eggsGood non-OC'ing board

Pros: Bought for a client's new i5 gaming (re)build since none of the features of the more expensive chipsets were needed. (And, the client was moving a Nvidia GTX 295 from old system to new, so no CF or SLI was needed.)

Board setup and install was flawless, and software install using the client's new SSD worked well. (All provided/installed software from the MB disk worked with Win 7 Home Premium Retail.)

Cons: When (re)building the system, ran into an issue where it would "randomly" reboot. Prime 95 found that one pair of ram sticks was bad, and a successful RMA corrected the issue with the Prime 95 stability. However, the "random" reboots continued.

In summary, the ram used for the rebuild (Crucial Ballistix Sport, Model BLS2K4G3D1609ES2LX0, Newegg Item#: N82E16820148662) that I received came from two different "manufacturer batches" from Crucial. The lower serial numbered batch worked on the board fine. The newer set, however, required that the board's bios be updated from its shipped A10 to the (as of this review) latest A80 via MSI's LiveUpdate software. (The software working flawlessly.)

Other Thoughts: In short, if have "random reboot" issues, update the board's bios via the MSI LiveUpdate software to see if it corrects the problem. (And, if have older DDR3 ram about, install Windows using it. Update the bios, then try your purchased ram.)

Intel Core i5-3570 (with bundled cooler)
4 x 4 GB DDR3 1600 9-9-9-24 1.35v Ram (via XMP Profile)
Corsair Neutron 256 GB SSD
Nvidia GTX 295

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible Cust. Service, DOA Board

Pros: Looked like a great Mobo, got it with a i5 bundle from Newegg.

Cons: Unpacked and assembled, got no video. Tried 3 different PSU's (430 watt, 550 watt, 650 watt), 2 different brands of DDR3, even breadboard-ed and still no video. Called MSI/Newegg. Newegg couldnt RMA it because I had used the box it came in as a breadboard platform for a "out-of-the-case" troubleshooting. Neither could figure out why i received no video. Newegg RMA'ed my i5, and I received notifications every step of the way (should be here in the next week). MSI however, received my board, then told me "they had no record of it coming in". When attempting to use their online Cust. Service, got nowhere. Tried their phone support, got hung up on 3 times. Pretty sure I got swindled out of a motherboard, and I will most likely never purchase from MSI again. I wish I hadn't tried to use the box the Mobo came in, so that Newegg could've just RMA'ed and the process would have been flawless.

Other Thoughts: Extremely disappointed in MSI's Cust. Service, their "online" support, and their motherboards. I've built computers for about 13 years, never had a problem, but this is one the worst experiences I've ever had.

Manufacturer Response:
