4 5

Fantastic product really well thought out construction, really decent if you're building a good pc system for either gaming or video editing especially as you can put up to 32gig of ram in and run an I7 processor so huge potential!Don't forget beautiful sli capabilities too.

Annoying Stickers
One thing which really annoyed me about this motherboard was the stickers they have put all over the motherboard especially over the PCE 3.0 slot.When I took off the sticker some of it stayed behind and covered up the holes of the slots which led to me spending an hour getting rid of :(. Bad move MSI. Don't mind them over hdmi ports etc as it doesn't interfere however over slots themselves is stupid in my opinion. (So if you get this beware of stickers annoying you!)

Not the best instructions
I found the instructions ok but not brilliant only regarding the wiring of the LED - LED + part, was a bit tricky with a 3 page book the size of a business card. Overall a decent 4 out of 5!

  • Overall 4*
  • Ease of use 4*
  • Value for money 5*
