The Xpower II is a feature packed LGA2011 x79 mobo. This is an Extended Large ATX mobo that needs a case designed to accommodate the E/XL ATX factor. I put this in an NZXT Phantom 820 with no problem, which is running an Intel i7 3930k CPU. Without regurgitating all the factory specs, I'll just comment on the features most useful or appealing to me.
-Very well packaged, it would take allot of work even for UPS or FedEx to damage it
-Nice layout, slots are well placed with good separation
-Plenty of expansion for RAM, PCIe and SATA
-MILSPEC Themed Heatsinks match my explosive, yet controlled personality
-Color scheme of the main board looks great in a flat black chassis

Areas for Improvement
-Only 1 USB 3.0 & 2 USB 2.0 headers (thank goodness for the NZXT UI01)
-Onboard HD Audio doesn't compare to a separate quality sound card

The minor shortfalls of this mobo are easily mitigated with a simple device like the UI01 to add more internal USBs (if necessary) and the addition of a quality Sound Card, which most enthusiasts would install anyways. In comparison, the strengths of this mobo are not easily mitigated on the mobo's that fall short of the Xpower II's features. So, if you want a rock solid LGA2011 x79 mobo with extensive expandability and backed by an equally impressive company; then you've found the moboload.

MSi's customer service is top notch; they're responsive and will thoroughly address any tech questions you may have. I called them twice to obtain clarification on a couple of tech inquiries and they were very professional and helpful.

Right out of the box this looked like a beautiful MB. It installed easily and felt sturdy. The documentation makes it easy to see where everything connects too, although there are some power points you begin to wonder if they are really needed (Hint...they ARE). I was drooling as I installed this in my wifes system, wishing I had used it on mine instead. I had to have a towel handy so I didnt drool on the board!

Then it happened....it powered up but beeped incessantly (six beeps, restart...six beeps...restart). This was not in the manual, so I am at a loss. I double check the memory placement and discover that it is incorrect, so I place it correctly. Easy! Still wont boot...but now I get no beeps and constant restarts. LED display shows error 67, which ends up being a Late CPU Initialization. So I try to contact support, who will not talk to me without the serial number. But the online system will not accept my registration, stating that it was not a valid serial number (was I sold a knock off?!?!). So I call them, but they are only open Monday thru Thursday and it is Saturday....and I work on weekdays, so there goes EVER getting ahold of support. Now, like any IT guy, I use google to find possible fixes.

I reseat the CPU (resulting the using more thermal paste and possible bent pins), reseat the ram, disconnect all devices, clear the CMOS, etc. No luck, still error 67, although once I got an error 60 instead....which is the same fault. I cannot even get into the BIOS. Finally I find a post about how to trick the board just to get the BIOS running. I had to remove the RAM and place one stick in DIMM4 (Zone B, really?!?!). But holy crap it worked!

Had to buy a cheap i7 LGA2011 processor to update bios to current version 2.4 for a 4960x build (had 1.5 I think installed as it was manufactured in April), but otherwise this mb is great. Tech support checked my serial # and got back same day on man. date. No oc yet or anything but it has all of the features that I could ask for in an x79 mb. 8x8gb 2400 G.SKill RipJawz Z kit wouldn't boot right away at 2400 so I have it running at 2133 right now (I was impressed that it booted with 8 dimms filled at all). Will have to look into that when I do more tweaking. This is an XL-ATX mb so make sure you have a big case (I purchased Temjin TJ11 and it fits great). Deciding between this and z87 wanted to go with 8dimm slots especially but overall workstation class with more pcie lanes and supports multi-core so I could use the 4960x. If you want the room a big case provides, this is a great mb. LED display during boot seems a bit more for tweaking than for actually diagnosing if the mb won't post-the old stand-buys of checking cpu and ram are probably the best things to try (the manual doesn't even have all the codes listed and I was sometimes getting ones that weren't in there after clearing cmos, etc.).

Cons: Not all SATA 3 controllers. That's about it.

Pros: Tossed it all together and it worked. I haven't had a single crash and it's been running for about 38 days now. Windows 8 64bit. No complaints yet.

MSI Big Bang XPower ii board was "Dead on arrival". After calling MSI Canada the tech said it was my equipment that and not the board or "no fault of MSI product". The tech or the sales support personnel ask what like of board it was, I replyed MSI Big Bang XPower ii he asked if it had any video from the CPU I replied with the synonyms that I was faced with "No Post, No Video". dead, dead, dead. Change the memory, video card x2 rebooted in between times. After getting not much future with him I replyed either MSI sends me a new mainboard or I'll find myself a different more "reputable inc" to deal with. After getting an RMA and two 1/2 weeks leater they send send me a refurbished mainboard that worked. MSI knew "very well" that this board has problems and it should have been removed from MSI retailers and wholesalers until the problem was "fix or resolve" than put it but back on the open market. By not doing so is only wasting my time my money and very bodies elses time and effort looking to purchases this main-board. It doesn't look very good for MSI and I don't think I'll buy another product from MSI in the near future. So who ever is read this "You set there and you think about that MSI
