Is it good or bad?

I was looking at a cheap and O.K motherboard. It's the MSI B85M-E45 and i'll put in the i5- 4440.

    MSI has poor customer service , get the quality ASUS board.

    since 4440 has locked multiplier and doesn´t consume much power practically any b85 motherboard will do ...
    my personal favourite with that chipset is this one : http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gigabyte-motherboard-gab85md3h

    I must disagree strongly with the above statement. I have had personal experience with both MSI Customer Service and Tech Support. Do you have any experience to base your opinion on, SR-71? If so, is it recent or years ago?

    I would rate MSI's service as excellent!

    From what I've read, it appears that some of MSI's AMD based mobos are poorly designed (970?) but this is simply not true for the Intel mobos. I have had very good results with the mobo in my sig, and I would most definitely buy MSI again.
