USB AUDIO POWER
When connecting multiple USB devices, most motherboards will be unable to deliver a strong 5V power signal to all USB ports. This is highly noticeable with high-quality external USB DACs where sound quality degrades as the motherboard is unable to deliver a perfect USB signal.
Only MSI USB Audio Power continuously delivers a stable 5V to the USB ports on motherboards, making sure you can continue to enjoy the crystal clear audio standard you expect.

My first impression of this motherboard was a positive one. Easy to manage settings in the Bios and absolutely no problems getting the board to recognize all components installed on the board. With the installed Samsung EVO 850 256GB SSD it was lightning fast booting into Windows. I felt I had made the right choice...UNTIL...after 2 days of using the new computer working on my music in 2 different DAW's the motherboard simply died. No warning it was having problems. It just died. Knowing that components can die is a reality so I wasn't shocked when it happened. More like disappointed that it happened. Hence the 4 stars. I know some people would rate it lower but keeping in mind (stuff happens) keeps things in check. I still liked what this motherboard has to offer so I purchased another one through Amazon.
Realizing I needed to remove the board and file a return with Amazon and then order another motherboard I logged onto Amazon and got the necessary information sent and asked for a direct deposit into my Amazon Store Card. That was simple and easy to do. Then I went to investigate specs of other motherboards and noticed a few problems some of them had so began to think it's like a crap shoot when purchasing electronics. You can get a good one...and you can get a bad one. After debating about buying a different board/brand I decided to purchase this same motherboard once again and see if I might get a good one. The motherboard was ordered and it shipped in 2 days from Amazon and arrived well packaged and in great shape. At this point I'd like to say how pleased I am with how well the return and shipment of another new motherboard went. In a word I'd call it seamless. I'm very impressed with how well Amazon's website is setup to accomplish the needed transactions and can't speak highly enough about their customer service. Excellent job Amazon and thank you for your quick response!
Here are the items I installed into the new computer build for anyone interested in using any of the components. I can say they all work well together and installation/assembly is a breeze.

With the new motherboard installed and the desktop up and running again I'm feeling the joy. Hopefully the bad board experience was only limited to the one board. If things keep running smoothly and there are no other problems to report...I'll return to offer an update to include details of how well this build is doing. Again, thank you Amazon for being a great company to deal with. I give Amazon 5 stars for this experience!
However, this board arrived D.O.A. I was having a power failure with this board. I switched back to my old ASUS Z87-A motherboard and everything works like a charm again. MSI tech service was unable to narrow anything specific down.
This motherboard was meant to be a cosmetic upgrade in conjunction with my case and other hardware. Replacing through Amazon.
Hopefully this Motherboard lasts for along time. :)
Used in a newly built computer with:
Case: Fractal Design R5
CPU: Intel i5 4790k w/ Corsair H105 liquid cooler
Ram: G.SKILL 16 GB DDR3 1600
GPU: EVGA GTX 970 SC ACX 2.0
Drive: Samsung 850 EVO 512 GB SSD
MB: MSI H97M-G43 mini ATX
Monitor:ASUS 24" 144 Hz 1080p
Bose On-Ear sound link bluetooth headset
StarWars Battlefront 2015 All Ultra MFAA 1080p (70-90 FPS)
Few other things to keep in mind is that if you buy a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO or similar cooler then make sure your ram has low clearance because the radiator section overlaps the first DIMM slot. I had Gskill ripsaw ram and was in full contact with the cooler but I replaced it with Kingston Fury and it fit just fine due to it not having the stupid peaks that ripsaw has.
