May need ATX 4 pin extender for bottom up power supply.

Howard,

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great value with the 20% redemption.
Bad points:
May need to play with the bios settings to get the graphics card to work. It wouldnt detect my radeon 7870 until I manually changed the PCIe settings from auto (UEFI and Legacy) to Gen3

John, Colchester Long-time PC user/builder

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Feature-packed, good value, easy to use BIOS, Soundblaster software included, M2 port is useful addition.
Bad points:
MSI Bloatware. None of the 'apps' supplied are really useful, to me at least.

Not very colourful (if you care about aesthetics - I don't).
