I wanted a relatively inexpensive but full-featured motherboard as a component in the system I am building. This product fit the bill in all particulars--its UEFI bios is fantastic--much better than the reviews of the UEFI in this board led me to believe it would be. This is my first UEFI product and, frankly, I could not see how it could be much of an improvement over a plain-Jane bios. I am happy to report that this board's UEFI exceeded my expectations--I won't be buying anything else without it in the future. Aside from this UEFI being as fully user-adjustable as I could have wanted--lots of "tinker" features--boot time for this UEFI from cold-boot power on to the Windows loading screen is roughly 5-7 seconds! A bios will generally take 20-30 seconds to get that far into the boot process--as a result, this board fully boots to Windows in about half the time of a bios board. Unexpected bonus!

My board shipped with UEFI version 1.4. Checking it out through the included MSI Live Update feature, I found the latest UEFI version for the product to be 1.7. I used MSI's Live Update through Windows and the update installed perfectly--without a hitch. Highly recommended. (Some people are scared of this method, but I've never been burned by it.)

I settled on the MSI product over, say, the Asus and other brands in the price range, because out of all of them only the MSI board provides me with dual PCIe gpu bandwidth (for CrossFire or SLI) of 16x x 8x. All of the other products in the price range supplied dual gpu support of 16x x 4x--which seems very unbalanced to me--the dual-gpu support in those cases would effectively be limited to 4x. You are much better off with 16x x 8x if you can't have 16x x 16x, than with 16x x 4x.

Pros: Has 2 USB 3.0 ports which is great. Supported my AMD FX-8150 right out of the box so no need to flash it. SATA connections are well placed. Within 20 minutes, this board was up and running without any issues at all.

Cons: The 8pin is located on the top left of the board which makes installing a liquid cooling system in a case with a bottom mounted PSU a little tricky. I was able to get it to work, but it's snug. Heat dissipation could be a little better. OC Genie II was a little confusing at first, but I figured it out (was a long day for me).

Other Thoughts: Interestingly enough, I am much happier with this board than I am another much more expensive board from ASUS.

My build:

AMD FX-8150 8 Core Black Edition running @ 3.9ghz
AMD FX Liquid Cooling
Galaxy 560 GTX video card
Kingston HyperX Black 16gb DDR3 1600
700W Rosewill Stallion PSU
LG Blu Ray / DVD / CD burner
Rosewill Redbone Case

Bought this motherboard for my new computer build.Alot of ppl tell me that this is a bad board but so far i disagree! From day one i installed all my equipment into it and it started right up picked up my ram cpu dvd drive and 4 other hard drives right away.Installed windows 7 ultimate x64 and this thing rocks!!!!!!
Heres my specs:
MSI 970A-G46
AMD FX-8120 3.1 GHZ 8 Core CPU
8GB G.SkillSaw DDR3 1600 Memory
MSI N630GT 4GB DDR3 Video Card
Thermaltake Water 2.0 Performer CPU cooler
Cool Power 980W Power Supply
Lightscribe DVD=/- Burner

From first boot it handles amazizngly!!!! People told me never never put a AMD FX-8120 into this motherboard but you know what? I havent overclocked it or anything but temps are low on MB and CPU no worries here.I LOVE having 8 cores compared to my old P4 computer. IT Kills install time!!!!!!!! Moving files from hard drive to hard drive is super fast most time i dont even have that lil window pop up sayin how long til it moved.. Buy this board if ur on a budget or you want a kick ass computer that will last you awhile. But just to repeat i dont overclock so i cant say if you overclock it how itll handle. but still a sweet MB

Not an ideal board for fx8350 users! Apparently the fx 8350 cpu can draw more than 120w when it's reaching maximum load which will cause some hiccups to occur. One of these hiccups includes intermittent disconnects from lan connection. I've had the issue on both my wireless usb nic and the integrated wired nic.
It's been a persistent issue since day one using this board and I've tried updating the bios, reformatting with a different version of windows, disabling OC features in bios, the list is nearly endless...

This issue is the only thing I dislike about the board. I'm sure that if I were using a lower end cpu with less power consumption this wouldn't be an issue.
Also, side note - we also have another pc with the same mobo/cpu combo but with a different gpu and that rig also experiences the same problem. This other pc is used lightly since its operator is 70 years old.
(the other 3 pc's in the house have zero issues with lan disconnections, just the two with this mobo+cpu combo)

For 80$ it cant be beat, It has almost everything you need in your system, Its Not Fancy nor is it extremely cheap.
It has AMD 970 Chip-set which is a must for AMD gamers since its mostly directed for them .
It comes with a Sli capability but its extremely difficult to fit two GPu's in so dont expect too much
Aswell it comes with other nice features
-Full Sized Atx Motherboard
-Plenty of Sata connections
-Big Heatsink
-Supports the maximum amount of Ram Slots(4) and Speed(2133) By Am3 Processors
-Plenty Of usb(6) 4 usb 2.0 and 2 usb 3.0
-Supports 2 system fans
-8 pin Cpu Connector for Beefy Cpu's
My System Build
Amd Phenom ii X4 965 be
1600 ram cl 9
VisionTek 7870 ghz Edition Gpu
Cooler Master 700w (bad)
Overall This Motherboard is great for the price and its extremely reliable
