I recomend against getting an MSI motherboard.
If the USB hubs are not plugged in it wont always post.
Adjusting the overclock usually requires a few failed posts before working even though the OC is tested fully stable.
With the above problems sometimes its a matter of just keep repeating until it works rather than anything specific being wrong.
The PCI slots are particular, you are very limited in where you can put what, forget about SLIx16 or perhaps even x8, right now x8 GPU and x4 SSD is what I managed.
the fan control does not support low fan speeds unless you edit the configuration file in a text editor.
The command centre application requires you to reload such profiles each boot to be configured properly.
there isnt that much RAM on the QVL, I had to RMA one.
Based on all the above MSI simply isnt up to par with Asus and Gigabyte. However I believe its only a matter of time (5 years?) before they figure stuff out.
