5 out of 5 eggsGREAT VALUE OPTIMISED BOARD

Pros: The most feature-rich board for the money at the time of my purchase. Supports overclocking, triple AMD graphics cards or dual Nvidia graphics cards, RAID, USB 3, SATA 3, 32Gb RAM and even has an mSATA port, not that most of us will put it to use.

Cons: Only what we already knew - Ugly brown PCB, lack of 3-way SLI support even though it has 3 PCI-e slots, no power and reset buttons on the board, no LED POST indicator and the usual stuff we love to see on "high-end" boards. These things arent really cons because like i said- this board is designed to offer the more important features and keep the cost down.

Other Thoughts: MSI - Maybe im way out of line here, but it seems to me that the color of the PCB shouldn't really affect the cost of the board from a manufacturers standpoint so why on earth did you choose poop-brown? Thats really the one thing about this board that has me scratching my head and wondering if i should have sprung for something similar from another brand...

3 out of 5 eggsFantastic motherboard! For about 6 months.

Pros: I'll give this badboy 3 stars, because while it worked, it was the best darn diddly motherboard I ever owned. Never even thought of overclocking it in ran so nice.
The installation was uber-easy and while the directions were unneeded they were helpful and easy to access for those without years of computer building experience. I ran this mobo with an nvidia 760, 4 gigs of ram and a thermaltake 850 watt PSU. I was running all my games on high or ultra settings. 60 frames a second, crisp as a leaf on a fall day in Maine.

Cons: The only con I had with this product is it's unfortunate lifespan. I had bought this motherboard after my MSI Z77A-G45 military grade 3 died 5 minutes out of the box. That mobo was no longer carried by newegg so I upgraded to this. And like I already said, while it was the best darn diddly motherboard I ever owned, I now have two broken MSI motherboards sitting in boxes that I purchased in the last 6 months.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Value

Pros: Well designed, Great specs with smooth BIOS.
This MB is Great at being a powerhouse that provides a great platform for a good SLI build. The cost vs performance is amazing.

Cons: It does lack some of the more advanced MB audio controllers. However in my opinion if you are looking for a great audio experience then a sound card is the best way to go. It also lacks the Gaming LAN controller found on some MBs. From what i have researched that is a plus in my book.

Other Thoughts: Amazing MB for the price when paired with rebates.

5 out of 5 eggsMSI z87-g55

Pros: Great price, clean layout, easy to use bios, newest features like SATA 3 and USB 3.

I have had this running non stop since I completed my build a week ago, have not had one single issue yet. I really like MSI, and this is a quality motherboard, at an extraordinary price.

Cons: On board sound is not as good as I was hoping. (By no means bad, however.)

The metal I/O plate (that you slide into your case) was a little tricky to get in right, and some of the flanges were bent. Nothing worth deducting an egg though.

Other Thoughts: I really don't see how you could be disappointed by this board.

5 out of 5 eggsPiece of cake

Pros: I liked the fact this came right out of the box and into the case and fired up without a hitch. I've had some troubles with MSI in the past, and didn't think I'd ever use them again, but the price was hard to pass up. I purchased this board, along with a Core I5-4460 processor and 16GB of memory (GSKILL F3-1600C9Q-16GAB) and everything was literally plug in and go.

Cons: The manual indicated there was a connector to plug all of the case connections into before plugging into the header on the board, but the box didn't have one. Not a big deal - this is the only fault I could find with this board. Also, installing the drivers from the disk was extremely fast, but using the Update6 utility for follow-on updates is HORRIBLY slow. I might suggest you go to the website and just download what you need rather than use this utility...

Other Thoughts: I added a larger heat-sink to the processor (DYNATRON K17 ) just in case - I don't trust those heat-sinks that come with the processors...

5 out of 5 eggsHonest Review

Pros: Ok, so I waited at least a couple of months to review this board because I wanted to be honest about how it works from day one too 2 months.

This is my first ever Intel motherboard. I have had AMD for about 4 years and the difference is amazing. Not to say that AMD isn't, but I didn't have the finance to get a good board at the time and got comfortable with AMD. It served me right.

This board has everything I wanted, and I trust MSI and they delivered. I haven't had any issues with this board, and I coupled it with an i5-4670K overclocking it to 4.0GHz out of the box. I also have an H100i that keeps everything cool and with a Radeon HD 7850 gaming card.

Yea, I know, the graphics card lol but I am planning on getting a better PSU and Nvidia 780 Ti later this year with better memory. Currently I have 1333 MHz of 16GB of Ram, but will upgrade later to see if the board can handle 32 GB and an upgrade processor to i7.

All in all the board is very good and hasn't let me down. I've had it literally running for 3 months and it hasn't let me down... yes 3 MONTHS so its legit that I have a great board.

Cons: None, everything is working great!

4 out of 5 eggsMSI 1150 Board

Pros: Large Board, with expansion slots big enough to not have GPU cards on top of each other. Mid to Full Case needed for this Large ATX Board.

Cons: Size could be a problem for some cases, but not necessarily a con if planned ahead.

4 out of 5 eggsBad ram slot/slots

Pros: Works great for the most part
Nice bios interface, easy to install and minimal setup

Cons: Started boot cycling after a week

Other Thoughts: I was able to troubleshoot the boot cycling issue down to a bad ram slot/slots on the motherboard. Swapping the ram to the other pair of slots seems to have fixed the issue though.
