I call shins on the whole deal. Just look at the testing manager's name. "General Lee". Just like the Dukes of Hazzard's car.

All signs point to a "it should be fine." And not have any problems like noted before.
Those problems are exclusive to the low end segment, old high end boards on the Intel side (MSI's first x58 boards) and MSI's high end AMD board.
Come on Tator Tot. the certification was signed by famous dead civil war General Robert E. Lee, and that doesn't worry you in the least.
IMHO MSI should be baned from planet Earth. Hash? No the pics speak for them selfs.
This is labeled Military class. If you have a DOA board thats bad. When you start getting them directly from the manufacture, what does that tell you?http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=13-130-275&SortField=0&SummaryType=0&Pagesize=10&PurchaseMark=&SelectedRating=-1&VideoOnlyMark=False&VendorMark=&IsFeedbackTab=true&Page=2#scrollFullInfo
Still gotta work on the English manual translation, the grammar and misspelled words in there is just a disaster
Cons: Very unstable
Lo and behold, my first board was DOA. I accounted for the functionality of every piece of my system except the CPU and mobo - which were both brand new (didn't have another AMD cpu/mobo to test with). I RMA'ed the board and the cpu (which I'd feared damaged in a difficult mounting process) for good measure, and waited for replacements.
This is where it gets good. With brand new mobo and CPU (Phenom II X4), system booted up once (further than I'd gotten before)...and shut off permanently after I moved the case slightly. I've tested everything from my PSU to the power strip and wall socket to my case switches.
Other Thoughts: The only thing left was the face the cold reality that I got 2 DOA boards in a row. What a shame that this is such an unreliable product - a real slap in the face given the "Military Class" jargon they promote.
