Finally it's here! I picked out this board, not only according to the parameters, but also depending on the equipment, and mainly because Sata connector on its side facing towards what is really most sensible solution, cabling nezavadzia visuals and kabelmanagement is easier. It is a pity that other producers zabúdajú slowly to this solution. The board is amply equipped. PCI-E 3.0 and 2.0, ie. 2 pe VGA to sli or crossfire, outputs HDMI, DVI, VGA and DP, as well as USB2 and USB3 from behind. Top-quality 8-channel audio with virtually inviting with sound! (Tested in stereo with speakers Microlab B-77, B-73) with MSI biosom did beautiful step forward. Aesthetic appearance in my opinion is the best. As always, najprecíznejšia Vetráková regulation, which was immediately adjusted to the desired speed, or the method, the control method, without requiring a reboot and leaving the BIOS! They surprised me quite hard and tight enclosed SATA cables with a gable end. The plate has a rich OC potential. Along with MSI GTX660 OC Twin Frozr III and Pentiumom G3220 2x3.0Ghz, board temperature never been more than 38.C in idle 34.C, and hence the CPU acquired 3-5.C downward; wherein the front and rear fan Never turn for more from 600-700rpm. (Scythe Glide Stream 120 PWM, 0-1300rpm). In conclusion, I recommend the board to everyone who was a fan of the golden middle path ratio, the price-performance-quality.
36 months warranty. Outputs, and trim boards. 2x VGA to sli or crossfire. 4 slots for memory. 4PIN CPU power supply, low power consumption. Precise control blowers. BIOS and configuration. 4x SATA III. Advanced sensors. Price. VGA1 slot tightly on the RAM slot (2-3 mm) only regulates Fans 4pin.
