Reviews
Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pretty good budget motherboard. I used this motherboard to build my budget gaming PC and to be honest, it's pretty good and that's pretty much all I've got to say about this motherboard. Pros: -mATX for small builds -2 SATA6 ports -Haswell compatible (LGA1150) -Manual can be found online with a simple Google Search Cons: -2 SATA3 ports -No manual included in box Overall, I didn't have any issues installing and setting up the motherboard. It was all plug and play straight out of the box. 02 October 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Basic motherboard, premium feel. Great board for budget builds, while still including an excellent easily navigated BIOS. 01 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Decent Quality, Cheap Price I've used this motherboard on several desktops I've built & every single one has been fault free and performed perfectly. The driver update program is essential & does it's job very well in making sure you've got the very latest drivers/BIOS unlike some other brands who offer the same type of update software that never finds any updates even when you know there are some! Recommended for anything but the very high end. 19 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Features Got this the following day after placing my order, installed it and it worked perfect. The whole process in setting it up took me less than 1 hour. Real value for money. 22 December 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Doesn't support Vista States it supports Windows Vista which is still a current operating system but try instaling the drivers supplied on the disk you can't and you can't download them as a driver is needed ? 16 October 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Value for Money May not have a banquet of features but it does what it does well and supports haswell CPUs 15 April 2014

Answer: 
For official overclocking support, please use the Z series of chipsets.

Any overclocking which might be able to be done on the others could be plugged by fixes by Intel at any time.

Pentium G3258

Is this motherboard compatible with the Pentium G3258 straight out of the box or is there an update required for the BIOS? I have heard that if it is manufactured after June 2014 it is compatible, is this true? Also is the motherboard manufactured after June 2014. Thanks :)

Answer: 
Built one with a G3250 worked out of the box no problems, I would double check MSI's support page as they have a comprehensive CPU compatibility list along with which BIOS revision supports it.

Answer: 
Hello,

We would be unable to confirm the date of manufacturing on the board you would receive. The CPU is compatible but it may require a BIOS update.

Thanks,
