So... While I was installing a new CPU cooler, I may have accidentally scraped my screwdriver down the front of the board. Quite hard. Really hard. But I guess they don't BS when it comes to this Military Grade standard. I don't know how this thing still works, but it does. Anyways, it's a great board. Built my new rig on this, then built one for a friend on it.

Pros: Great boardGreat priceWell placed and plentiful connectors
Comment:
Bought this for a friends' build. Works great. MSI has great UI for the board, and overclocking can be done fairly easily.My only issue, while minor, is with MSI's mail in rebate system. There is a very short period to send it in, and they will reject it anyway.
