Reviews

Great motherboard, works very well, has everything I need. Built-in sound card works okay; I bought a sound card because I am a bit of an audiophile. I wish it was a little more spacious, but I guess that's what I get for getting an ATX.

My first experience with MSI, previously a Gigabyte or ASUS man and I'm super impressed. Love the bios - the motherboard explorer - kewl. And the utilities that come bundled are actually useful and work. Especially like the auto driver update manager app-type thing. Also there was no need to get SATA drivers downloaded to a thumb drive before installing Windows as per Gigabyte H97-UD3. Overclocking - eezy peezy with MSi Commander or Interl Extreme Overclocking Utility.

BIOS isn't amazing, and I broke the front panel USB 3 pins a little, works well with the paint and handling of everything else, good deal too.
