The Good:
- Everything worked right out of the box.
- Compatible with Ubuntu 12.10 linux
- Latest Intel "Northbridge/Southbridge" chip
- Room to expand.
- Low cost

The Bad:
- Poorly executed graphical UEFI
- The physical board is thin.

Overall:
I'm fairly impressed with this motherboard. I have been out of building desktops for years now, so I had to do quite a bit of research before settling on this mobo. I spent a lot of time reading reviews, looking for reliability issues. It is a fact of modern manufacturing processes that a certain percentage of product will fail. It stinks, but that's reality. However, steps can be taken to reduce that percentage. After a fairly unscientific study (kept a running total of failures reported in comments for various mobo manufactures, I selected MSI.

This board had everything I was looking for. This box was built to dual function as a multi-user desktop for the basement as well as a whole home file and media server. For this, I like the the number of SATA drives it could support, and the variety of PCI slots offered. The extra USB3.0 header was a bonus. I bought a front mounted usb port / card reader and attached it to this header. At the time of purchase (late 2012), the Z77 chip was the best intel chip out there. Not many boards at this price point offered this chip.

As this box was built to run linux, compatibility was another huge consideration. I'm happy to report that this mobo (and an Ivy Bridge i3 processor) worked right out of the box on Ubuntu 12.10. No drivers to compile, no hoops to jump through.

I also appreciated that MSI included a couple of SATA cables with the mobo. It is a small item, but a nice bonus to the consumer.

Bought it for a semi high end gaming pc and so far it has work like a charm. Using it with i5 3570k with corsair vengeance ram 8gb. Only thing i could complaint about is that it read my ram as 1333 instead of 1600 at first but it was really easy changing it on the Bios.I didnt over clock my cpu yet because i havent had the need to do so soo i can not say how it performs in that category.

It survived the first month very well including moving houses. My computer is on for about 3-4 days a time and it has had no problems what so ever. Will be buying again in a couple of months for a second build. Extremely satesfied with my purchase.

I bought this from the Goodwill in California as used (doubt you can find these new anymore). I have a really old Windows XP box that uses some really old music recording software that is tied to an old PCI SoundBlaster sound card. In an effort to keep it alive, I found this motherboard suited my needs allowing me to upgrade from my old system which was a hybrid 32/64 bit AMD duo with 4 GB ram to a newer i5 Intel with 16 GB ram and SSDs. My music recording software appears to be able to run on Windows 7 64 bit, which is great since I can utilize the full 16 GB ram and newer video card. So far so good! Everything is in working order with the used motherboard.

Some issues I ran into were:

1. It wouldn't boot up using a fairly recent nvidia 770 video card, I had to use an older 560 series.
2. It wouldn't boot up with a USB memory stick plugged in, had to boot up with it unplugged, then plug it in once it booted

MSI still has everything you need on their website for this motherboard. All I got was the motherboard swapped in anti-static plastic and the faceplate, wrapped in large amounts super fun bubblewrap. I downloaded on another PC and copied to a USB memory stick once I installed Windows 7 on it. No issues so far! Great motherboard.

Hopefully this will last me a while, there's fewer and fewer motherboards that support old PCI sound cards, and I really like my old software and hardware.

Was looking for the best buy I could get plus have all the features I wanted.I was really impressed with this board when I first saw it after taking it out of the box.It is very sturdy and strong.The board looks good and looks good inside the case.Has a lot of utilitys you can install from the driver disc or on MSI website and the Live Update utility will scan your system and recommend what drivers and bios version you need to update if any.Works very well and for the price is a very good choice.

Fast, easy to use and fluid. I've never worked with a board like this before. Completely compatible with all of my hardware, and everything recognized quickly. Startup's quicker than a flash, 5-6 seconds from my splash screen to my password screen.

Only problem I had was that the network genie was limiting my bandwidth and slowing down my internet speeds. Other than that, five out of five.

This board supports pretty much all of the latest technologies as of late 2012. It has USB 3.0, HDMI, PCI Express 3.0, and supports the 3rd generation Intel Core CPUs. Sturdy, reliable, affordable, and has BIOS designed for overclocking to your heart's contentment. The board supports 32 GB of DDR3 RAM. I have no complaints and found it easy to setup and use and once setup, it runs very reliably.
