Everything worked fine except for network controller. Turned off in BIOS and bought a network card and has been working great. Never got response from MSI which was really disappointing. Is it too much to ask for quality these days?

I built a new PC about 2 months ago and have been running it since. It works great. I have an Intel core i7-4770K CPU, 16 GB of DDR3 1600 memory (Crucial Ballistix Sport), 3 x 1 TB hard drives in a RAID 5 configuration, a 64 GB SSD configured as a cache for the RAID disk (the RAID and SSD cache are all features built into the motherboard, and work great). I am using the on-board graphics capabilities, no graphics card plugged into the PCI-e 3.0 x 16 slot. The built in graphics "card" is more than adequate for my applications (keep in mind that the CPU is also the GPU and a different CPU/GPU will give different results).

I have not tried to overclock the CPU or memory. I am using the retail box fan and it seems more than adequate for my setup. I might need to upgrade the cooling system if I were to overclock the CPU. I am running around 45 C for the CPU temperature on average.

The UEFI (formerly BIOS) interface is graphical and fairly easy to navigate.

The built in network interface works fine. Everything I have tried works as advertised with the possible exception of adding more disks to my RAID setup, I haven't figured out how to do that.

I like that it has 6 SATA III (6 Gb/s) connectors. Their location and orientation could have been more convenient but it's not any worse than any other MoBo I have experience with. I may not be typical, but 6 SATA connections is not enough for me. So I added a PCI card, problem solved.

I have a PCI TV tuner card and a Blu-Ray disk. I use the PC as a HTPC in addition to more serious duty. I have connected my HDTV to the graphics output via the HDMI port. This works much better than my previous PC which also used an HDMI port for graphics.

This MB is sharp looking and works great. But I did run into a problem which was easily solved by updating the Bios AND the Management Engine (ME) software. I installed a new Intel G3258 Haswell chip and this caused the MB to not be able to restart or reboot -it just just sat there with the CPU fan spinning whenever I tried to reboot. I had to hold down the Power switch for 10 seconds and do a cold boot for the MB to come back to life. I updated the Bios alone and still had the issue. FRUSTRATING. I finally figured out that you can't just update the bios alone. You have to use their MFlash utility in Bios setup AND YOU MUST SELECT THE "UPDATE BIOS + ME" selection using a USB thumb drive with bios v 1.7 or later. After that, all was terrific.

This motherboard is a great budget board..... You have the highest end chipset of the 4th generation and a good amount of bells and whistles. CLICK BIOS 4 was a little hard to nav through, but very nice bios. The integrated sound card will do you well, as you can hook up a 7.1 system which is awesome! MSI Live Update 6 definitely helps you install ALL of the drivers you need, so download that first thing. Creative Sound Blaster Cinema is simply amazing as 3D Surround works well, bass boost is very clean, and crystallizer makes everything sound awesome. MSI Command Center lets you OC, control fans, and much more. Now to installing everything on it. I had no problems EXCEPT getting the USB 3.0 header in. Its a little bit of a tight fit and it came loose only once, but other than that, absolutely no problems. Great motherboard for budget builds. This is my total build, which is about $830
