Pros: High quality VRM, good board layout and losless audio.

Cons: Could use more fan connections. Wish I would've known how great it was sooner.

This motherboard has exceeded my expectations at almost every turn, especially with all of the garble about recent MSI board problems that I have read about. Beautiful black and blue color scheme is well thought out, as is the slot layout. The pci-e slots are spaced well as to not deem the x1 and legacy pci slots unusable. With the two x16 slots seperated correctly as well, it is very feasable to crossfire or SLI without killing the extra slots. The upgraded audio puts this board ahead of most onboard and the audio utilities take full advantage of it. Included accessories give case owners without USB 3 the chance to install it in their case and the six included sata cables are high quality with 90 degree at one end.The biggest plus with this board, in my opinion, is the v-drop (the LACK OF IT). It delivers a steady supply of clean and even power throughout. The UEFI bios is the best that I have seen up to now and that is saying something for those of us that have used either the Crosshair V or the Fatality bios's to overclock. Haven't even powered on my Fatality 990fx system since I have gotten this work of art! Last, but not least, I bought this board after reading and researching it for about a month and was biting my nails for the first week due to all of the negativity from the MSI haters but now I get the last laugh.... thumb.gifthumb.gif
