Decent board for the price
Good color combo
Limited overclocking features(Can only overvolt CPUs up to 0.16 volts)
Not a bad board for the price. It also looks nice, but has limited overclocking features because it can't overvolt CPUs that much. However, I did manage to get a 3570k to 4.6ghz with this board at 1.21 volts.

Experience: 2 Weeks
Price, Good performance
PCB not black
Very good Z77 board for budget gaming/overclocking builds. Supports Crossfire and USB3. Only downside is case fan connectors are placed too close to the CPU area and makes cable management slightly messy.

Experience: 3 Weeks
 Verified Owner
good quality components
nice board to build a low budget pc, i already have the gd65 in my pc, so i was confident going with the g43 wouldn't cause any problem.
it works beautifully paired with a 3570k chip

Not sure yet.
Net sure yet.
I would love to leave a + feedback, but I am yet to use the item. Purchased on black Friday and had to RMA it. I had an invoice emailed to me for the new board on December 19th. It is now December 28th and I am still waiting on shipment confirmation. Please please please send me my motherboard!!!

I will rate accordingly after I actually get an item, thanks.

Cheap board that do the job !!!
the second PCI-e is only 4x so don't buy this to SLI/Crossfire even if it's supported
Got this board for 80$ with mir and manage to overclock my 3570k to 4.8ghz no problem so, no complaints !!! VRM stay cool and all seems ok ;)

Performance, simple to use, price
lack of accessories
Not sure why these have been getting bad reviews online but I've used both G41 and G43 and found it was easy to use and a great board for a budget system. The UEFI was not the best but it was straight forward and very easy to set up. It just lacks accessories and features like SLI and O/C. Though it says it is O/C capable, I would not buy this board for O/C. Overall great bang for the buck.

Fast, solid and easy to install/use.
This is a great board with fantastic reviews from all over the internet. If you are looking for a gaming build and want to save a few bucks, this board is for you. MSi has really stepped up their game.

very good motherboard, been testing for a week. Works perfectly.
at first start, cpu temperature went up to 55°C. But rapidly came back to 40-42°C. Now stable. Don't hesitate. Best I had in years.

Price !
Good cap
Solid board
PCI-E 3.0
Instruction book
This mobo is better then the Z68 (other brand) i bought. The board is solid, parts are good quality. Solid caps. The Bios is a new kind, a little bit confuse to surf on. Good thing, its the first mouse using on BIOS i see. Seems to be a little bit slow to boot with you do upgrade on Windows 7. Anyway, its not so important. MSI seems to have upgrade their quality now.
