I got this motherboard to upgrade my aging Athlon X2 6000+ system to an i5-4670k system. It was a toss up between this motherboard and the MSI Z87-G43, but Amazon was out of stock on the G43 and I didn't want to wait. :)

After about 5 days of use, I really like this board.

Pros:
1) I like the UEFI BIOS and the fact that it can choose from a ton of devices to boot from and the order. I think there are 6 UEFI devices and 6 "normal" devices. I disabled the UEFI devices and have the following order for booting: USB Floppy, USB Memory Stick, USB CD-ROM, USB Hard Drive, CD-ROM, Hard Drive, Network. Basically, anything I could want to boot from, this will boot from.

2) There are 6 SATA ports

3) Stable given the minor annoyances below.

Cons:
1) For whatever reason, this board had a hard time recognizing my SSD. I tried to install Windows 8 on it and it was an exercise in futility. it would install, then not boot because the drive would become unrecognized intermittently. Eventually, I used it as an excuse to get a 2TB SSHD and use the SSD as a program drive. This has been working well ever since, and the SSHD is pretty sweet to boot.

2) The board came with Intel ME drivers, but both times I tried to install them, the BIOS got BORKED - basically the menu and options were all screwed up, but the PC still booted and worked normally. I ended up re-flashing it because I couldn't make any BIOS changes with it in that state. I have absolutely no idea why this would happen, or even if the two things are related. But I haven't installed the Intel ME drivers since and it's been fine.

All in all, for the price, I am very pleased with this.

This motherboard was part of a new machine I put together 5/2014. The install went smoothly, and runs great. Windows 7 Ultimate. All hardware I installed was detected correctly. Setting the speed of the overclockable RAM was very easy to do. Overall very happy.

Now, here's the caution: Don't install any of MSI's own software into your operating system. Doing so destabilized my system. In particular, their Command Center software, which is where many of their other system overclocking operations are supported, worked ok at first, but then a software update came through and caused my machine to blue screen, and damaged the OS to the point where it had to be repaired and rolled back to the last prior working checkpoint. Once that was done, the system was stable and I backed it up. Just out of curiosity, I reinstalled the updated command center and once again I was presented with a blue screen. So I restored the system and systematically removed all of MSI's own utilities. (The various hardware drivers were just fine from their respective manufacturers for sound, network, video etc.)

A call to customer service, I got a lackluster support tech who quite frankly did! not! care! I told him I was pretty good with PC's, pretty much since there's ever been a PC, and had definitely tracked down a blue screen crash issue to their latest Command Center app over a virgin install of Windows 7. His response was, well, no-one else is complaining and it's been out for 4 days. He was uninterested in taking any further action. So I told him that he couldn't tell anyone else who called that they've never heard of a blue screen failure cause I just told them. Upon thanking him for his non effort, I removed all their utilities. System has been rock stable ever since.

As I said in the title, I have only had one issue. First, however, I would like to say that it works like a charm with my 4670K and two GTX 760's in SLI. Never had an issue software-wise, and it feels pretty sturdy. The audio is solid, sounds nice in my stereo, and has pretty good sound overall. Finally, we get to the one issue. Before you install the IO shield, look at the back of it (the side with the little metal springy leg thingies to support it) and look for the Ethernet ports and one of the USB 3.0 ports. You should see two wide metal legs there. These ended up blocking one of the USB 3 ports and made my ethernet port not plug in all the way, making the connection unstable. So before install, bend those two back and out of the way. Don't worry, the stability will NOT be affected! I have tested that. I bent them back, and now I can use both of those ports perfectly. Other than that issue, it's VERY easy to use and the BIOS is very friendly to those who are new to it. I'd recommend it :)

This has been a fantastic motherboard with a lot of control, backup options, and everything I needed. Be sure to tighten up all the heat sinks before you mount it, a few of mine were loose.

Well when I was figuring out what my build was going to consist of, this board immediately caught my eye. For its cheap price, (i got it for $120) the military quality parts and the 3 PCI-e slots was a big deal. this means this board will have huge versatility for my future when upgrading parts on my computer, and I won't have to replace the motherboard for a long time.

Also one other thing I like about this is the BIOS screen, because its so user friendly, unlike my laptop BIOS screen...

So far with my build completed, It's turning out to be a great choice! Would highly recommend.
