5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Board

Pros: Everything works perfect. I'm running a 4790k cpu with Bios 1.8 and I couldn't ask for more. Got it lightly overclocked to 4.4 ghz with a Corsair H80 and my temps stay around 75 degrees celsius. That's good enough for me.

Cons: none that i can think of, exept I had restart problems with the new cpu like many others.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: reat Kiiler lan function, fast, easy to install

Cons: I have buy it a brand new Msi z87 g45 gaming motherboard and a cpu i5 4590.
I have last version of Bios, 1.8, everything work great, i can play for hours without any overheating or restart problems.
Only problem is when i try to restart my pc- after shuting down screen, my monitor lose signal, and notthing else happened, i can't hear the windows sound, all freeze, except case fans, my case fans still worked, my pc don't turn off.

I can restart pc from my bios through, with save changes and reboot, and sleep mode work as well, my pc come back immediatly after sleep mode.
Even when i try to install windows, i install it 2 times already, when installation required restart, my monitor lose signal, and i have to turn off from my case button and turn on again to continue installation.

I have all drivers installed, i have integrated graphics from now, i already try with another Ram memory, and to change slot place, but not working.

I have a PSU Seasonic S12G 650, Corsair vengeance 4gb DDR3 1600 mhz and a Samsung 500gb HDD sata 2.
Can be a option problem? like a power mode fuction to prevent my pc restarting?

When i start my pc, for half a second, in the right corner of my screen, appear "99" and then, "9C" and then the dragon logo and the pc start up fine. Can be that codes a warning? i didn't find any code in my manual.


I FIX PROBLEM BY UPDATING BIOS+ME! SEEMS LIKE MY CPU WAS NOT FULLY SUPPORT BY THE MOTHERBOARD UNTIL I DON'T HAVE LATEST ME VERSION.

NOW EVERYTHING WORK PERFECTLY FINE

Cons: NOTHING SO FAR

2 out of 5 eggsEhhhh

Pros: With a I7-4770K this this is FAST. Power button to desktop is about 5-6 seconds w/ and SSD in windows 7. Like the layout and it's very pretty.

Cons: Gone through 2 so far. Had to RMA the original after about 5 months because it would no longer boot into windows after a failed overclocking. The second is in the RMA process currently because the USBs wouldn't recognize anything that was plugged into them. Also, network port didnt work. All after a new PSU that I got shortly after the first RMA.

Other Thoughts: DO NOT overclock using this board!!

3 out of 5 eggsBad Memory Socket

Pros: Easy install, fast, looks great in the case

Cons: Bad memory sock, ordered 8 gig x 2 for it and it will only recognize 8 gigz. Thought it was the memory until recently I decided to by the Corsair Vengeance Pro since it was on sale, went to install it and encounter the same problem and did some research and found that this a common problem, wish I lookid it up earlier.

Other Thoughts: I have been overall happy with the board, but because of the bad memory slot I have to give it 3 eggs.
