I've been using this board in a new build PC for around two months now with no problems. The board fit easily into my case (BitFenix Merc Alpha Midi Tower Chassis) with enough ports for everything I required and running an AMD FX-8320, Radeon HD7850, 8gb ram, an ssd and 2 hdd.

Installation was easy and it's been running well. Very good value.

Never had an MSI board or GPU die on me, I've bought about thirty products from them over last five years.
This board has all I need for a basic gaming, surfing PC, and the bios would be okay if Windows hadn't decided to make us use their own crappy bios settings and bypass UEFI all together "Which for me resulted in my fans running at 100% all the time". Stupid microsoft!

When initially set up I had problems with memory slots when trying to use DDR3 1866MHz memory and had to use lower spec memory. However, once I obtained more up-to-date drivers from MSI my current set up on this mother board seems to now work as it should.

This motherboard worked great for the first 3 months, but my computer has recently started cutting out while playing games. I was concerned about this and so I ran some diagnostics and there seemed to be no problems. I run an fx-8350 on this motherboard (same thing as an fx-8320). Apparently other users are having this same issue as well. I am going to try to return this motherboard under the 3 year warranty if possible and will update this review in the new year.

Very easy to install but i would advise close study of the manual for the external power/reset headers. Easily accepted my 8350 and it has been keeping very cool.The drivers it comes with are fine and the OC utility does allow for easy modifications to the clocks of your processor and RAM.

In overview i would highly recommend this motherboard as it has a strong build and you get your moneys worth out of it with its abilities.
Solid 5 starts from me,

There are cheaper and better alternatives out there these days. This motherboard uses a 4+1 power phase for the CPU, as expected for the price, but with no cooling on the vrms. So if you use a 125W TDP or higher CPU, those will get quite hot. Some people claim they've fried their motherboard with stock settings. They get very warm with just a 95W TDP CPU. You can add some heatsinks to the vrms to fix the issue, so not a big problem imo. Biggest flaw on this motherboard is the fan speed controls. I can't seem to control my CPU fan at all. It's at 50-80% at default and you can only make it spin faster. The case fans aren't any better with the options of Auto speed or 50-100% manual speed (adjustable at 10% intervals). If you have 2x12CM fans at 50% in a small case, it's just overkill and very loud. There are no separate options for the 2 system fan headers. Whatever you select is applied to both fans. So if you get this motherboard, your cpu cooler needs to have a 12CM or 120MM fan unless you want your computer to sound like a leaf blower. As for case fans, get a 5.25" or a 3.5" fan controller that you can attach to the front of your case so that you can manually adjust the fan speeds.
