Great product with a cool colour scheme

Pros

Some LED lighting
Lots of USB 3.0
Gigabit ethernet
Multiple GPU slots
Summary
Overall I was expecting some issues with this board based on reviews, but mine is flawless. It was purchased for a cheap AMD build that is performing miles ahead of my old system. Rocking a Black and red set-up right down to the LED fans. I highly recommend this for anyone who likes a sleek looking mobo for their build.

Decent Board / Decent Price Verified OwnerVerified Owner

Pros

Runs well out of the box no issues during testing or final build (unless you consider the below con insurmountable)
Cons
Some quirks with the fan controller / BIOS
Summary
As mentioned Some quirks with the fan controllers not a huge con as the issue is easily overcome (read up on this prior to your build) performance wise this board should meet or exceed your expectations. As always MSI quality is a cut above the rest.

If you have ddr3 buy this

Pros

It's a really well made motherboard I have run into zero problems except installing drivers but that was easily solved.
Cons
I love the board for what it is, however if I'm buying one now I would buy one that supports ddr4
Summary
The board has crashed zero times and with an SSD I can start Windows in 8 seconds. The BIOS settings are easy to change and understand much better then my old Asus. Very friendly for controlling anything you wish to control.

Comment: HardwareCanucks Dam Good Award. Best motherboard for AM3+ socket CPUs. Perfect for building on a budget. Able to handle overclocking, can take on 220W TDP of the FX-9590. Very few USB 3.0, but has excellent audio quality and Killer LAN.
