This is my second MSI motherboard, I love them so far and I think I will probably continue using them in future builds.

Pros:
- PCIe x16 3.0: faster for my GPU
- SATA 6GBps x 2 << definitely a pro for my SSD and HDD
- older style PCI slots still available
- UEFI Bios ("Click Bios II) which allows for larger than 2.1tb hard drives to be recognized... Windows 7 instantly recognized my 3tb HDD
- Click Bios II which allows you to control BIOS features from within windows, and excellent feature for sure, you can even flash your BIOS from within windows which is awesome... even my older MSI motherboard has this feature using MSI live update 5.

Cons:
- RAM slots are a little too close to the CPU, my heatsink covers two of the slots up, so I had to be sure to install my RAM before I mounted the heatsink, but if I ever need to replace RAM, I'll have to completely remove my heatsink, which would include removing thermal compound, cleaning CPU and heatsink, and then reapplying it all... JUST to replace the RAM.
- Only 2 SATA 6GBps slots... a downer, but still nice to have the two.
- I'm sure people still have ps2 mice and keyboards... but I don't see this as a neccessity... USB keyboards and mice are generally plug and play these days... even my wireless keyboard and mouse worked with this motherboard on first startup.

Okay well for the price it seemed like a very nice MOBO. With the PCIE 3.0 port it seemed to good to be true,and it was. The problems started when I tried to load the MSI drivers onto the computer. Every thing went fine until around the end when the computer just up and froze. After about a minute you would get a blue screen error. I finally got all of the drivers and bios loaded and was happy for about a week or two,but all of a sudden all audio just stopped. I tried every thing I could to trouble shoot the problem.(uninstalling and reinstalling drivers- trying to use old drivers and also checked hardware) With the stereo I was using if you cranked the volume to the max and the PC volume the same you could hear what almost sounded like a whisper of what audio it was trying to produce. Also in the bios the MOBO would always default my RAM speed to 1333Mz when it says on the package of my RAm that it is 1600Mz. I would go in and change it myself to 1600Mz,But I would get errors and my Windows would not boot.

In the end my situation my have been isolated,and this board is good for the price (you get what you pay for).

This was the cheapest motherboard I could find for my intel i5 3570k
I was easily able to over clock to 4.0GHz with the BIOS menu, and so far this motherboard has lasted for 6 months without any problems.

I built a FreeNAS server using this motherboard and an Intel i3 cpu. I went with this because I wanted something stable and reliable, and a good Intel chipset. I've had my FreeNAS server running for 1 year now with this board, which I use heavily for video editing (via Gigabit Ethernet) and backing up my media. I've only had to reboot the machine once the entire year unexpectedly. I'd say that this board has went above and beyond my expectations. I definitely recommend and will continue to purchase MSI components because of my experience.

Be warned -- there's nothing fancy about this board. I don't believe it even has all of the USB ports supported by the Z77 chipset.

However, if you are looking for the cheapest possible Z77 motherboard, I'm pretty sure this is it. And it does the job well as a basic board. I purchased a Intel Pentium G870 to go with this, and it's running smoothly. I needed a dedicated machine for doing VHS video capture, able to support Windows XP so I can use an old ATI All-In-Wonder PCI card, and the motherboard had all the necessary XP drivers from MSI.

My only gripe is that this motheboard doesn't like having USB storage devices plugged into the USB 3.0 ports during boot... it shows an error code in the corner and hangs. Remove the drive... it boots fine. You CAN boot from a USB stick in a 2.0 port, and I installed windows XP from a usb stick, actually.

Originally had XP on a Corsair F60 SSD, but realized XP doesn't support TRIM, so I switched for an older 250GB WD Caviar. Both drives worked fine.

Also, mouse support is buggy on the UEFI BIOS... just use the keyboard and you'll be fine though.

Good budget MoBo that has stood the test of time. Could have better out of the box driver support (I.E. I had no ethernet until I used a USB drive to install drivers) but other then that it's been a nice little board. Solid construction. I didn't run into any issues with crowding. I'd definitely recommend it if the price is right.

I purchased this for a fairly standard i5-3570K build that I'm primarily using for photo processing and Minecraft. Regarding the overall function of the board, I've only had an issue with a single USB port that works but doesn't work well. Regardless, I don't need that particular USB port nor do I foresee any need to use it in the future (I'm fine with what's available, my case has an extra two up front, and my keyboard has a hub built in). I also had some slight fitment issues with the power supply plug which connected fine to other motherboards, but was kind of a pain to get connected here. Outside of that, nothing to complain about other than features. For instance it could certainly benefit from a couple more SATA 3 ports, but for the price I got what I expected. If I were going to do it over again, I would have spent a little more money on a board with more features but for the price this one is good.
