Experience: 2 Years
Good marketing
Not reliable
This was my first & last MSI product. I purchased based on their "hand tested" gimmick. It ran but was never completely stable. I was never able to over clock it, even mildly with OC Genie. It never had typical defective board symptoms. No blue screens or system freezes, but lots of software crashes & other weird things like USB port randomly disconnecting. I always blamed something else, but could never narrow it down after tons of troubleshooting. I finally got fed up & bought another board & all problems disappeared! I Rma'd this board & received a replacement that I used to build a system for a family member. It ran for less than 24hrs on stock settings before the replacement board died.

Everything! Colour, Lights(CPU Phase), Overclockability, lots of USB 3.0, Dual Bios switch
Absolutely love this MOBO. The OCGenie is amazing and ramped up my stuff pretty fast and with stability. Have not had a single issue with it and can't foresee me having any either. Great purchase on sale.

easy oc
none so far
bought it for 185 plus $10 MIR, very good price
can be easily OC to 4.5Ghz on my i5 3570k

Looks good
OC to 4.6 as promised
Runs hotter compare to Maximus V Gene
USB 3.0 port was on/off constant
I wanted ATX to replace my mATX Maximus V Gene in hopes to CF Arctic Cooler installed 7970s. This mobo ran hotter than mATX I have and Front USB panel would not work on both or one depending on the situation. I wish MSI designed USB header port like ASUS rather than on the side. I RMA for refund yesterday. I had similar experience wrt USB header from MSI GD80 which is in my GF's build and had to use 3.0 to 2.0 adapter.

Overclocks well.. nice bios
Matched with a 3570k this baby puts out some decent numbers. An R4 case and a corsair cooler made for a beautiful build with this nice black board. So far so good!

Looks great!
Lots of features
Built in WiFi and Bluetooth is a nice touch!
I personally love the click bios
OC Genie is not THAT amazing. Getting a stable overclock on this board with an unlocked processor is already VERY easy.
Got a bundle with the i5 3570k, and man do they work well together! The click bios is very easy too use, and with an unlocked processor, overclocking is a breeze.

Highly recommended.

SLI compatible, runs cool, looks awesome!
This mobo supports SLI and I recently ordered it with a 3570k, it runs cool, and fits everything I need!

Excellent buy
Incredibly easy to OC
Not that impressed with the MSI software
THX and Creative have issues with the Realtech Drivers so uninstalled
Very pleased with the MB. Compared to my old EVGA MB this one is much lighter, power efficient, looks great and performs well.
I'd say this is an amazing board and well worth the money

Price. Durability (9-Layer PCB, good VRMs, SS capacitors).
No DVI or VGA ports on the back (HDMI_+ DP ports, dual display ready).
On-board sound uses one of the higher-end Realtek chips.
Smooth install, Win7 up and running in minutes with SD.
No Voffset setting in BIOS.
Not Intel NIC.
Five fan connectors, all with adjustable speed for 3-pin or 4-pin fans. Fan control options are little basic in the bios, but latest Speedfan does the trick.

Pretty board, but lots of LED indicators that might bother (or not?) on a case with windows.

Included SATA cables (four) are nice, black with white connectors. 90-degree one end and latching both ends, just a little too rigid.

XMP setting worked right away with 2x8 GB Mushkin CL9 Blacklines.

Not overclocking. Not using the Wifi or BT. Using old MSI 460GT graphics card in the 16x PCIE slot.

Using TOSLINK with external DAC for sound. There was some noise at maximum volume with headphones, but was easily fixed by selecting 24-bit sound instead of the default 16-bit.

Came with version 17.5 bios (Nov 2012).

VRM heat-pipe seems to be painted black and there is no sign of piping kinks as per earlier reports.

Experience: 5 Weeks
Great board
Built for Overclocking
LED display is great
Good warranty service
Built in Bluetooth
Built in WIFI
great software package, BIOS control from windows
Had one PCI-E slot bad from factory
Have this board running up to 5.0 ghz no problem, 4.5 ghz for every day use, and it runs cool and fast, the dual 6gb/s SATA channels are great for SSD's and the THX sound works great.

Had a bad PCI-E slot, but ove the counter replacement was painless and new board works perfectly. Looks great, and works very well as well.
