5* A very good motherboard with plenty of options for the price
Reviewed by Zak Jones on 23/01/2016
Drivers are easy to get through MSI's website or the Live Update 6 application included. No issues with any of my hardware. BIOS is easy to navigate and intuitive to use. Windows 7 installation was easy - just had to enable one setting in the BIOS and go to use USB mouse/keyboard.
5* Wow, what a motherboard!
Reviewed by Hendry Motter on 21/01/2016
This is a great looking motherboard, with an understated colour scheme that blends in perfectly in my NZXT H440 case.

Has six SATA III ports plus one M.2 slot, and two USB 3.1 ports at the rear in addition to two regular USB3.0 and two 2.0 ports.

The M.2 slot supports the new Samsung 950 Pro running at PCI-Express 3.0 x4 speeds - I installed the 512GB version as my boot drive (no problems there with a fresh install of Windows 10 Home) and got speeds of 2344 MB/s read and 1536 MB/s write (CrystalDiskMark scores), way faster than even the four Intel SSDs I have in RAID 0. It also does not steal bandwidth from my video card.
