One of the best overclockable motherboards you can get.

justducky 5 points 1 month ago

Solid motherboard for gaming. I'm not overclocking, and not worried about SLI, so this was a perfect mid-range choice for me.

Pro:

  • Easy setup, installation of drivers, BIOS is user-friendly

  • Updating drivers is easy with MSI Live Update

Con

  • Comes with so many MSI "utilities" that you don't know which to use. There were at least 3 different ways to overclock your CPU

  • The included Live Update tool tries to install Chrome, Google Toolbar, and Norton Security.

  • Updating BIOS through Live Update did not work. You have to flash the bios using a USB drive. That's not a problem, but the utility has a button to update the bios within Windows that did not work for me.

  • Ram is locked at 2133 Mhz by default, must be overclocked to reach full speed.

I wanted a cheap, future-proof MOBO and this is exactly it. Overclockable, crossfire ready, up to 64 gb of RAM.
