It looks nice, the manual the comes with it isn't the best and a lot of slots not labeled but still got it to work. I do like the surround sound feature built in. Probably will pick up a newer version of this motherboard in the future.
Has everything I need and lets me OC my processor with 1-click, which is awesome.
This is my first build using MSI boards. The board definitely has a nice aesthetic with not to much red and a good use of red LEDs along the audio trace and the a few other parts of the board.
Overclocking was pretty strait forward. Just needed to get used to MSI UEFI. I would prefer if the fan headers for the cpu were next to each other with another system fan header where the CPU2 fan header is. But that is hardly a con, more of a preference.
Great board, works with the MSI GAMING APP along with GPU.
3-stars because of no SLI for future proofing. I was possibly going to go to 1440p with this rig, but I don't even think a RX 480 crossfire would have suited me for that, so I went with a 1070 in 1080p. The board has a decent amount of fan headers, but you'll need some power splitters (I only needed 2).
Got this motherboard at a discount from Amazon because it was a certified refurbished. It's practically new and works great and handles overclocking well. Also, it fit in the theme pretty well.
Plenty of expansion slots. Easy installation into the case, along with an easy-to-follow guide. MSI also sends some nice extra stuff with the board. I will definitely be buying from MSI more in the future.
Pretty solid cheap board.
Still prefer Asus bios but is still easy to use, enjoy the LED lighting on this mobo
When i bought this i thought there would be more red lighting. Very little lighting on it. It got the job done and it holds all the parts nicely.
