I'm having a bad experience with this board. Per MSI, the first time you use it, you must have a discrete graphics card installed for it to boot up, even if you are using a CPU that has integrated graphics . There are some retailers who have arranged with MSI to switch off that setting; the vendor I used is not one of them. Apparently it's software related so there is no dip switch to bypass the issue. A very serious gotcha IMO.
