2 out of 5 eggsWhat the hell

Pros: This board had the potential to be FANTASTIC. I have bought 2 of these boards. All around it looked to be a great board. The fact it had a GB Ethernet port to make use of my new Google Fiber internet speed. The bonus over clocking stature for down the road adventures if I ever ventured into the warranty voided side of computers. For a gaming MOBO the price was on target for my budget.

Cons: HOWEVER, the first was useless trash came in to me with CPU socket pens missing. Of course MSI assumed I did it saying they "Hand inspect each board".
The second board came with USB 3.0 on the MOBO were bent and I had to set them straight. There goes being "Hand inspected" again. Which was fine until I later found out recently, I can't have RAM in my 1/2 Slots. As they are apparently dead. So thanks again MSI for wasting my money not once, but twice.

Other Thoughts: The customer service is bad. The boards are mediocre from what I was told about the company from friends. They had recommended MSI highly and they didn't live up to my expectations with 2 boards that had MAJOR defects that if some one had took the time they could have fixed.
The first board they told me I had to pay 45$ to have them fix. Why should I have to pay them to fix something that was there fault? Instead of waiting 1 more month to get the board fixed I bought another one. This one had no huge problem at first glance. Until I tried to recently add more RAM the last DIMM slots 1/2 Don't work while 3/4 work just fine. All of my ram work as I checked each one. They only worked on 3/4 and failed on 1/2.
Wouldn't buy any MOBO from this manufacturer due to lack of customer service, and broken boards.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: this board is awesome. nothing wrong with it. best value for the price, I'm running a xeon e3 1240 v3 works perfectly just pop it in and go. plus the Xeon is so much cheaper then the i7 but has no integrated graphics but if you are Gaming you know what you need. the audio boost thing lites up purple fyi. didn't bother me but it might for some people.

Cons: none.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat motherboard, can't complain

Pros: Bought this motherboard last year to complement my i7 4770K processor. I'm running it with 8GB 1600MHz DDR3 memory, a Crucial M4 128GB SSD, and a Gigabyte GTX670 OC (until the new 870 arrives), and Windows 8 Pro 64 bit. I enjoy the SATA 6Gb/s ports and 4 USB 3.0 + onboard 3.0 header. Drivers are stable in Windows 7 Pro 64 and Windows 8 Pro as well.

Shortly after setting everything up my computer would freeze up occasionally to the point I would have to do a button press reboot. I took the time to troubleshoot and found the issue was the Titanium Fatal1ty card I had in my computer at the time. The drivers were only certified through Vista and even custom drivers only went so far. I am going on about eight months without that card and my system has never run better. I'll eventually pickup another sound card, but for onboard sound this motherboard does better than most.

The BIOS is GUI based and can be controlled with a mouse. Not a huge fan, but it is surprisingly simple to navigate and adjust settings from.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: On sale this motherboard is a great buy. Supports Windows 8.1 64-bit (and Win7ProSP1 64bit) very well.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat mobo

Pros: Great bios layout, easy to use and navigate. Plenty of features with usb 3.0, great onboard sound and awesome support of memory and cpu's.

Cons: The only gripe I have about this board is the sata ports. I am ont a huge fan of how they are housed in a casing that is perpandicular to the board. Other than that I have no issues.

5 out of 5 eggsAMAZING BOARD!

Pros: I love this board, highly recommend it. Bios is pretty simple and adds some performance boosts when playing games. Accepted every thing that I put in my system first time with no trouble what so ever. Good for beginner builders.

Cons: None that I know of. First one was dead on arrival but there is always a small chance that will happen.

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
