No you have not actually,that was the only board they had an issue with.It has been resolved.Not saying all their boards are intended to top the market but they do have overdraw protection on their VRM's,just like Asus

I can assure you the problem with that board was not caused by people overclocking on it. Just look at the numerous reports of them frying out of the box. Overclocking was one of the big selling points for that board so OCing on it and frying it = not the end user's fault. It was a problem with the board.
MSI has been garbage for a while now.
MSI has also corrected the problem with the low-quality component that was not all their fault.Faulty components happen.

Remember the Crosshair IV with no contact on northbridge heatsink?990FX UD3/UD5 with insane VDROOP? Blows my mind how selective some peoples memories are.
