Default MSI motherboards

I have kind of a general question for everybody that uses this forum. I was looking through the posts, and saw that Ram2453872 was having problems with his MSI motherboard. I built a computer a couple of months back that has given me nothing but headaches, and I put a MSI motherboard in it. While my problems aren't directly related to the motherboard (sometimes they were user error), I was wondering what kind of experiences other people have had with MSI.

ive had some trouble with my MSI (mainly that the drivers arent available for the Intel ICH5R raid controller that it uses) but they are great boards


anyone know where to get the drivers for the ICH5 Raid? or the MSI 875P-NEO FIS2R MOBO? i really need em, I been trying to get ahold of em, theyre pretty scarce, lol

I have one MSI machine and have never had a problem with it. Could be a fluke but who knows...
My main trouble boards are ABIT. Bought 5, 4 of which were bad on arrival and one died after 6 months. So I don't buy Abit anymore...

My 2 Cents

I dont think it is msi boards just luck. some stuff just comes jacked up others dont. I replaced my board and it works great now, my computer is running smoother and better looking then when i first put it together. Also my friend got the same board i did when i went to get mine and his never caused any problems allthough his processer came messed up and he replaced every part in his computer until he found out it was the processer.
