At any rate, trusting Amazon to back me up in the case of any problems, I bought this board, along with a CPU cooler (CoolerMaster Gemin II S524 with an optional 140mm fan) that would blown DOWN onto the X58 and the MOSFET's. When I received the board I removed the X58 and ICH10 heatsinks, cleaned the stock thermal pads from them, and used a good quality aftermarket heatsink compound to reinstall them. I've had no overheating issues and the heatsinks feel merely 'warm', but then again I've not really pushed the system as of yet. I'm hopeful that my choice of CPU cooler and the change to decent thermal compound will make X58 overheating a non-issue.
To make a long story short, I have Win8 installed on the machine.Read more ›
Unfortunately, I do many things and am not often able to install the parts quick enough for the 30 day window.. Not Only, I hate waiting for exchanges..
The last two MSI boards I purchased were defective. Unfortunately, both were past the 30 day mark so I had to return them to MSI and then get an exchange. After of course running through all sorts of requested troubleshooting.
Once i received the new boards from the RMA department, they worked well.. I just really hated having to wait 3 weeks while I sent my board in and then received a new one..
Once i Received the new board, the machine booted right up and worked just fine.. The motherboard is solid and have had no RAM compatibility problems and I will give MSI that.. When they work, they work well and are reasonably priced.
It has worked well, boots quickly, and has done what any good motherboard should do-- not bug me a lot. Bios is extensive and great if you want to overclock-- very similar to Gigabyte, really. The only thing is seems to be missing is an auto-overclock feature-- I miss that from my old mobo. MSI also makes it easy to connect all those tiny front-panel connectors onto your motherboard, too. They have a labeled plug system that you plug all the tiny cables in to first. You then place the nice and stable "parent" plug on to the mobo. Genius.
I really don't know what else you'd want on this motherboard. Maybe more SATA 6GB connectors would be nice? I have a blu-ray reader and a Samsung 470 256GB SSD connected to those 2 ports and it works like a champ, though.
The only negative is that the USB-3 motherboard connection is very difficult to install once the board is in place. I couldn't do it. Since I don't own any USB-3 peripherals, this wasn't an issue for me.
Thanks to the double spaced PCI-E slots I get amazing results. Most of the time about 65°C when playing games with SLI support. And maximum peaks at 80°C for the heaviest games.
Add USB3 & Sata III and you have the best motherboard you can get for such a low price!
