    Bit expensive but nice board.

    Bit pricy but a nice board. Only thing to note is that in some cases it’s impossible to reach the top left stand-off screw. Other than that no compatibility issues in a Corsair x465 case. RGB is a little dim but a minor thing.

    First one I bought was DOA, BestBuy immediately sent a replacement with next day shipping, so far so good. MSI isn't so bad as long as you stick with their higher end stuff.

    It's ok

    I am currently on my second motherboard. It works fine and all, but it is a hit or miss when it comes to the rear hub. After a month of having my first one, everything plugged into the back would disconnect/reconnect itself. I wish the lighting on it was more vibrant vs hidden. But all in all, I'd still recommend it. Its got all the plug-ins I need!

    Solid no frills motherboard at a fair price! I've used this board in multiple builds and it does a great job. If you want multiple M.2 drives this may not be the best choice since it only has a heatsink for the top slot. Not an issue for the people I've given it to. For the price, you can't go wrong!

    So far I am very happy with this product!!! Computer very fast. Always buy from Best Buy as I learned the hard way buying from NewEgg.om! I'm not a computer geek so very hard to order from NewEgg. Not worth the time and effort to return items that are not compatible with each other! Let Best Buy tell you want you need, to do what you are trying to do!!! Like I said...I learned the hard way, trying to save a few buck when it cost me so much more in time and shipping fees!!

    While this is a rather cheap MB, it for sure does not feel like one with the overall features and feeling. It is a great board for the price.

    Definitely a must have when it comes to have a good rig. MSI definitely did something right with this one and made sure you have plenty of features to play around with. The only issue I would say is that it doesnt have enough heat shielding but its very negligible

    Built my first PC using this motherboard. Keeps my i7 10700K (stock) cool, only ever peaking at 60c. Gaming @1440p. Struggled a little with managing cables, specifically when managing the AIO wires as my cooler is mounted on top, so the top part of the mb intruded and caused some headache. My set up is as follows... -Components: Case: Lian Li o11 Dynamic XL, CPU: i7 10700k (Stock), Cooler/Cooling: Corsair H115i x2 280 w/Rad, Corsair LL series x7 fans (default preset) GPU: EVGA RTX 3080 FTW3 Ultra (stock), RAM: Corsair PRO 32gb (XMP oc to 3200) -Monitor: LG 27GL850-B (1440P, 144hz)

    Bought this for my son for Christmas and it worked great for almost a year. Then the CMOS battery went bad. We changed that and it worked for a day then went bad again. Changing the battery did not work again. Geek squad checked it out and said the MB was bad. MSI customer support has been helpful and timely, although shipping it out will take 7 weeks to get it back. It was worth the buy and worked great when it worked. I would get the Best Buy extended warranty if I were you.

    No complaints here. Does the job paired with my i7-10700K. Motherboard is something that is the most easy thing to over spend on your build and with this price range of close to $180, it's right in the sweet spot with decent number of USB slots and a pretty impressive vram. And integrated wifi is a big plus. I'll give it a 4 star rating simply because the MSI software experience for this motherboard aka dragon center is not the most intuitive thing in the world with several annoying bugs and issues that come with it.
