Top customer reviews
To begin with it came packaged nicely. Included with it is the back panel template, motherboard, driver disk, and manual. Installing the motherboard in the case was easy with all the holes lining up in the case. Jumper-less design so nothing to configure there. While my case is larger it looks to fit nicely in a micro case leaving room to spare. Its configuration is as follows
The motherboard has an Intel H87 so if you have a processor that supports it overclocking is available but somewhat limited
Memory: 4x DDR3-1600/ 1333/ 1066 DIMM Slots (however to get it to support 1600 you have to enable XMS and change the timing as someone else noted) Dual Channel, Non-ECC, Buffered, Max Capacity of 64GB
Slots: 1x PCI-Express 3.0 x16 Slot, 1x PCI-Express 2.0 x16 Slot (runs at x4), 2x PCI-Express 2.0 x1 Slots
SATA: 6x SATA3 Ports, Support RAID 0, 1, 5
On starting it up you push delete to enable setup and it has a nicely thought out GRAPHICAL interface that supports a mouse. I thought this was cool but when it came to actually use it I was a little confused at first. All of the important settings are under advanced and your back to keyboard input for that. That's OK though and you don't even need to go there if you just want generic settings. It seemed to pickup all the attached peripherals by itself other than date/time (and the 1600 memory support noted above). Mild overclocking is available by just clicking the Overclock button. Uses very safe settings and while true overclockers won't be satisfied with the results, it does work for most of us. I used it and got a little bump in performance (at least measured by benchmarks as I didn't notice much in actual use). It raised the processor speed from 3.4 Ghz to 3.8 Ghz.
With the configuration noted above I was able to achieve Windows 7 performance index of
Processor 7.6 (due to the I-5 3.4 ghz)
Gaming Graphics 6.8
Primary hard disk 7.9 (due to the SSD)
The slower graphical performance is due to using the I-5 graphics and not a dedicated graphics card. I don't play games so I didn't see a use in spending the extra for getting this feature. However, you have to be a HARDCORE gamer to need speed beyond what a I-5 chip delivers.
I have been using this setup for about a month now and it has been VERY stable. No hiccups no hassles. Received one bios update and a couple of driver updates. They all installed automatically with a click of the install button.
Pros; easy setup, easy configuration, no surprises, stable, low cost for features
Cons; if there is any it is the graphical setup, some may like it, it is only OK. I did like the mouse support in the bios though. The other con is the fact that it defaults to 1333 memory and you have to change it manually to get 1600.
Received my second bios update from MSI. Using the utility that checks for updates on full reboot you are prompted to update bios and/or drivers as needed. The update process is easy and foolproof (nothing is really, I'm sure somebody could mess it up). Updates are a part of life in the computer world but it is nice to see that MSI supports its products so well.
As for the motherboards performance..... no crashes, blue screens, or misbehavior of any kind. After bios update though I did have to reset my personal settings which was annoying.
16gigs 1600mhz ram

Everything went fine. I had 4 problems with the board.
1. The 24 pin slot would not allow my Corsair CX600M's pin to fully latch on (indicating it was secure) and I had to use a clamp to get it secure.
2. The DDR3_2 slot died on 5th day. It prevented me from my monitor to detect the GPU and would not even let me get to POST. I'm using the corsair Vengenace 1600mhz 2x2gb kit.
3. The SATA ports are grouped up in such a way that disconnecting a SATA3 cable often involves disconnecting others that gets in the way.
4. The memory slots are way too close to the CPU. Installing CM Hyper 101i was really annoying because the Ram's would get in the way and block airflow.
*The BIOS feature on the MSI was really nice. Let me flash the BIOS alot better than ASUS or Gigabyte. Overall impressed with MSI.
**Also, if you're planning on using rams faster than 1333mhz, make sure you manually set the XMS enabled. The BIOS sets up the memory to default 1333mhz for stability.
