Top customer reviews
During any operating system installation process, the operating system restarts several times. During this particular build, whenever the computer initiated a restart, it never shut down all the way. The screen turned off, but the fans in the case kept running and nothing powered down. Every time this happened, I had to do a hard restart by holding the power button down and waiting for the machine to shut off, then I had to manually turn the power back on again. When Windows 8 finally installed, the hibernate, sleep, and shut down functions worked, but the restart function did not. I looked online and fiddled with the power management functions like a lot of people suggested, to no avail.
Finally, I decided to go to the MSI site to update the motherboard software. I suggest you do, too. I found the support page for this MOBO and downloaded the Live Update Utility and pretty much downloaded and installed all the updates that were available. Problem solved: the restart function now works LOL.
The more discerning computer hobbyist might have only downloaded and installed the most applicable updates, of course.
Two days later, the new board arrived. I plugged everything in, and it turned on and passed post. My problem was solved. I installed a copy of windows 7 pro, and so far it works great. I can cold boot into the desktop in about fifteen seconds, and I even have an old mechanical hard drive.
I haven't had the board that long to go into detail about it, but so far it works great. I would recommend this board to anyone, and I'll add more when I have more experience with it.
Oh and here are my specs:
Intel Celeron G1840
4GB DDR3 RAM
1TB WD10-EZEX hard drive
480 watt power supply
And windows 7 pro 64 bit
UPDATE: I got another motherboard because the one I was using burned out. I am still having the usb 3.0 problem. I found out that they only work in BIOS. Help...
UPDATE: I got a USB 3.0 Ports to work! :) I went in BOIS and messed around with stuff and now they work. The fifth star has been awarded.
I chose this board because it has headers I need for my high-end case. You get the headers to have up to two usb extra 3.0 ports and four extra USB 2.0 ports on the case along with the plethora of USB ports on the back of the case. Also, it has two fan chassis headers, when most boards in its price range only have one. Note that one header does have four pins and the other has three, but if you use three pin fans, you can put two on the board without a fan controller. Also, you get separate PS/2 keyboard and mouse ports, which are good for connecting old peripherals, such as barcode scanners, and also good so you can completely disable USB and use only the PS/2 keyboard in a secure business setting.
There are, however, some serious drawbacks for this board. First, the I/O shield they include is horribly cheap (see picture). You have to install the board on an angle to make the grounding flaps touch the tops of the connectors like they are supposed to. There are even little grounding flaps that protrude between the USB ports. This bothered me more when I put the computer together than when I use it, so its not much of a problem. While the mouse driven BIOS settings are amazing, the Windows software is horrendous. If you install the CD drivers, make sure to uncheck Network Genie. All it does is produce error messages. The updater software is a true shame and crashes on Windows 7 x64 before it tells you what updates are needed. Not to mention, MSI's programmers made too many grammar errors in the prompts. Most sentences and error messages are in bad English! Then again, many builders just use the vendor's site for the drivers and don't install the utilities, so it won't be a problem for them.
It's a solid business board, but I would be hesitant to use it for gaming because it only has PCI Express 2.0 instead of 3.0. You can, however, use a PCI 3.0 graphics card, but it won't perform as well as it would on a PCI 3.0 board. It is however, most likely adequate for your needs.
