I'm usually an Asus guy but I bought this motherboard as part of a budget build. It's running a Core i7 3770k at stock speeds with 16GB of Corsair Vengeance RAM and a Radeon 5850 video card. No problems.

I built a PC for my son for Christmas and the Biostar mobo that I originally ordered was shorting out and causing the PC to shut down abruptly and I couldn't even get the OS installed. I placed an order for this MSI board and had it rushed to my home via 1-day shipping and I was not disappointed.

MSI makes some quality products and the ATI 6670 video card I chose for my sons PC is just as solid as this mobo. Not a lot of frills here, but just enough to get by with a solid budget build that has some room for improvement later. Starting out with a Pentium G620 and will later upgrade him to an i5 when needed!

I bought this used on amazon a few years ago, and for some reason the integrated graphics have never worked. I almost returned it, but talked to the seller, MSI and Intel, and no one had any idea what was going on, but it could be the processor (new celeron G1610, didn't come with board) and not the board, so I just got a cheaper graphics card (radeon hd 6450) and it has worked fine ever since. I played with it again the other day and it still does the same thing:
if no graphics drivers are installed, the basic MS driver will show (at basic resolution) on the vga, but ONLY if there is also something plugged into the dvi port. otherwise it would do nothing.
if any drivers from any source (intel, MSI, or windows update) are installed it will half way boot, showing stuff on both the dvi and vga at different points but it always freezes and dies shortly after the login screen (but even before this point it looks very unstable the whole boot process.

but with the PCIe graphics card the board shows no signs of problems and hasn't for almost 3 years.

I also found the power management strange, in order for a usb mouse to be able to wake it from sleep, I had to move a jumper on the board that keeps the usb ports powered at all times (even with shut down) otherwise it would cut power to the mouse and keyboard during sleep. Then I had to go to the bios setting and set the wake up events to bios controlled rather than OS controlled because it still wouldn't wake.

AND WHATEVER YOU DO, DO NOT enable windows 8 mode. It screws everything up, and does weird stuff when it tries to boot, the only way to get it back it to reset the bios to defaults.

This motherboard works great. Still has the PS/2 style mouse/keyboard jacks, I like that. I put in a i5-3570k and had no trouble at all, it booted fine. The bios is well laid out and even includes advanced features for my chip and OC Genie which does the overclock parameters for you. I didn't try it yet. It may be a basic board, but it works great and offers a Great Value. Solid caps, probably run perfect for 20 years.
This board also has pin headers for com/serial & parallel (old legacy) ports, but does not have the physical jacks. I still have things needing both types of ports, and spare parts to create these jacks for old scanners, printers, etc. New PCs will not even have these legacy options. MSI has made a well designed motherboard which can still accept the old gizmos (if needed) and yet run state of the art processors. 5 Stars!

I can't say too much because being on a very tight budget I bought an OEM refurbished version. So they werent kidding when they said no accessories or I/o shield from better choice online. Regardless the motherboard is very simple to use. CPU Installation took less then a minute. And it came pre-tested and told me the bios version . to do a test boot outside the case shorten the pins labled JFP1. This is also where your case reset and power cords go. Having a refurbished mobo meant no manual so I had to Download a digital one which still did not mention this. Also to access your simple to use bios press and hold escape key when you see MSI screen. Again did not mention this hence the reason 4 stars but wasn't a big deal after a figured it out. Then again. Refurbished version. the real manual might have it in bold point but I didn't get that leasuire for being a cheapskate :c

pros: cheap, small form factor, fast, reliable,

This is a great "transition" motherboard that will run Windows 10 as well as legacy Windows XP, for example.

Rather than completely discard years of work and installed applications and programs on an XP Hard Drive, by overwriting the drive or migrating, it is possible to keep that work as-is and running perfectly in a dual-booted system.

In summary: extend that legacy XP hard drive for another 5 years, while gradually migrating files to the new system. Access-times, latency, and performance were significantly improved over the previous motherboard and legacy Intel CPU, by increased RAM and CPU speed on the new MSI H61M-P31/W8.
