My System Specs

I wouldn't hesitate to buy msi boards from the intel line. I can't comment on amd boards or processors as I have never bought or built an amd rig.

Had it just been those, and had it just been me throughout the circle of people I know then I would chalk it up to bad (really bad luck) on my part. But, that still doesn't excuse the CS I received (and I am always diplomatic, I never yell).
And with the issues some others have had, I just don't take the risk.

They are not alone, my ASUS 785TD-V EVO boards, I bought 10 of them. Over the course of a year 3 had failed. What makes the difference? I had replacements, no questions asked in less than 5 days for each.

EDIT - Don't get me wrong Mo, I'd be willing to try them again maybe sometime in the future once something is appealing. Its just hard to trust them again.
