[msi] MSI gaming motherboards launch - Page 7

post #61 of 155
Pair this board with 2 Black PCB 7870 XT Mysts... drool.gif

I love some of the marketing "Infuse the DNA" is the best line on that site.

The reason is that when you use a USB keyboard your computer is actually using CPU time polling your keyboard. The higher the polling rate the more CPU time is used to perform the polling. The PS2 port doesnt rely on the cpu at all I think...

We live in a day an age where almost everything has a quadcore, Hex's and octo cores are becoming the norm, I hate to break it to you but you could have a polling rate of 5000/Msec and it still wouldn't have any real impact on cpu performance, The same reason people don't use soundcards to gain a few fps, We only use them for quality, It's time to ditch the PS2 port, I've never had a ghosting issue on my boards and i have 560+ APM in sc

This line of boards is for gaming, and you can't put a 3570K/3770K on an AM3+ board... wink.gif

There is easily a place for this type of board. Most people don't overclock, but there is a subset of gamers who are interested in something nicer than the standard boards - maybe some of them are modders or perhaps 'faux modders' i.e. they buy standardised parts like pre braided cables and build with looks in mind, but never touch a Dremel or do any real modding (sorry for making up such a rubbish term as faux modders, but I can't think of what else to call them)

I already said on the other thread that I dislike MSI's standard look, and I don't like themed products that tend to treat gamers in a patronising way, but I can see why they're appealing and capable of attracting buyers. MSIalex put up a good case in favour of these boards in the other thread, and said that these boards are only a small step toward a much larger portfolio using this theme.

They are a lot nicer than the standard boards, and the price premium is apparently going to be small or nothing in some regions, so I'd call that a win. I'd rather have one of these than one of the brown/black/blue boards!

The Dragon theme is interesting in that it could quite easily be adapted to other colour schemes, so maybe MSI will eventually have something to satisfy everybody?

I pretty much agree with you but couldn't find a way to say it that nicely. Pretty much it's for someone that wants a standard motherboard but looks cool and has cool marketing even though there is nothing actually special about it.

If its more than $150-160 then shame on MSI for trying to scam the impressionable.

The demographic MSI seems to be going for with this do not buy Socket 2011 products.

I cant believe people still buying MSI junk motherboards. The worst ever. If you looked all the boards MSI manufactures their fail rate is higher than 38%. This is the most expensive Big Bang LOl So appreciably named.
Quote:
Cons: defective, fire hazard, sends out sparks, 38% failure rate, 42 out of 110 purchased failed within two months, should be recalled, MSI only wants to replace rather than return the defective product, fake gatling gun cooler arcs with MOSFETs and causes sparks and smoke to fly, cheesy gun marketing gimic is the cause of the problem, marketing should defer to engineering, people want quality, not a cheesy guns that spark on their motherboard. MSI should return, not replace this product. It is defective and hazardous
Quote:
Cons: Received two DOA. Two!

Other Thoughts: I got this board because of a deal Newegg offered: Buy the board, get free RAM. Unfortunately, the first two I received were DOA. I've spent almost two months RMAing the board to finally get a working one, not to mention the shipping costs I had to pay. Thankfully, Newegg is awesome with RMAs. I do have a functioning one now, and I can say it is preforming well. Hopefully that continues.
Quote:
None yet. Board was DOA/would not POST. Let's hope the RMA process goes smooth.

Cons: As soon as I opened the package, I could see the board had been dropped. the top right corner was bent with the jumper pins slightly bent as well. What's more, the inner box showed the damage, but the outer box was clean. That leads me to believe it was dropped during packaging.

38% return rate?! other than Hardware France's annual survey, what data has been published on component return rates?

http://www.hardware.fr/articles/881-2/cartes-meres.html
Quote:
- ASRock 1,67% (gegenüber 1,90%)
- Gigabyte 1,77% (gegenüber 2,17%)
- MSI 2,24% (gegenüber 2,11%)
- ASUS 2,34% (gegenüber 2,66%)

So one Newegg review about a motherboard not even in the OP is a reliable source that 38% of MSI motherboards fail? Are you crazy? I guarantee you MSI would not be making any money if they had to replace 38% of their motherboards. Seeing as how people who receive working products typically don't review them, that board would have a far higher percentage of bad reviews if that was the case.

The review that mentions the 38% number even states that the failures weren't from hardware issues. The positioning of the gun branding caused the boards to short out. Do you see anything similar on the new boards mentioned in the OP?
