It's a decent board. It works and hasn't failed me yet, but doesn't have support for USB 3.0 front panels, and only has one system fan header. For $50 you can't complain.

Also cheap. gets the job done. I really don't like the lack of rear USB ports and the fact that SATA ports are covered.

Great build quality from MSI, and the BIOS is easy to use. I might overclock my friends CPU for him when he gets the x4 860k later on using the easy OC Genie.

I'd rate the motherboard itself 5 stars, but the drivers that come with it tend to lock up my build on the Windows 8 boot screen. MSI Command Center is a handy tool, though, which earns the drivers a 3-star rating, so it averages out to be 4 stars.

Good MOBO for the price, only problem is that it doesn't handle overclocking too well.

Wish it had USB 3 connectors, but its ok other than that.
