Pros

Lots of usable features
Cons
VRM heat-sync began to leak
Summary
Good looking mother board, well built for the most part. The retention arms for the PCI express ports are rather brittle and ended up breaking off the arm. The BIOS is easy to use although I am not a fan of + or - values rather than just setting voltages. The CMOS batter is inconveniently placed and there are no references to it in the manual.

easy to hide wires, lots of space around the CPU socket for coolers and it looks great. My only real complaint is based on a very rare heat sync leak that I have never seen nor heard of before. Buy this board and keep that in mind.

Pros

- Compatibility with AMD 9590 processor and Gigabyte R9 380 4-GB GPU.
Cons
- Did not include internal speaker
- Some software included with motherboard caused system issues
Summary
The motherboard worked well with my setup of an AMD 9590 processor and Gigabyte R9 380 graphics card. However, two programs included on a disc with the motherboard (Fastboot and OC Guru II) caused system issues including crashing. Also, I used MSI Afterburner instead of MSI Gaming App.

Pros

Looks good. Stays cool. Good layout.
Cons
Price.
Summary
Solid board for under $200. Though, at full price there are better boards out there. I decided to jump to Skylake a month into owning it, but that's because the FX-8310 wasn't cutting it for gaming. This would be a fine board to use with a 8350+ and GTX 970/R9 390 at 1080P (Ultra). AM3+ is not a great option at this point, but if you're using older AM3+ boards, this _is_ a definite upgrade.

If you have a red/black theme and/or a MSI Gaming GPU(s), get thisI'm going to pair it with an MSI Gaming R7 370 in a new HTPC/console replacement.

Pros

MSI makes the best BOIS.. easy to learn and understand. Overclocking was no problem on this mobo. I love the red light thats all the way down on the left side! Came with cable tags which is a huge plus.
Cons
download only the drivers. Do not download the additional apps on the MSI website.. they messed up my drivers for a few minutes.. just had to re download the original drivers then it worked fine again.
Summary
Its a solid buy. Would buy again and i do recommend. I can see myself adding a second GPU on this board.
