Is the MSI ZH77A-G41 a good motherboard for the i5 3550?

I just wanted to know if the MSI ZH77A-G41 motherboard is good for my i5 3550 processor.

I am not buying a graphics card now I will buy it next year.( I also do not want SLI or Crossfire support since I will buy only a single graphics card)

So I require that the mob should support the integrated graphics of the processor.

  1. Sure!
  2. Stay away from MSI Motherboards. Trust me, if you plan to overclock they are not stable. MSI Motherboards are problematic all around. I know from experience. Go with an ASUS or ASRock motherboard. They might be more expensive, but don't cheap out when it comes to the life of your PC.

    But heared about asrock that they have low life and have very bad service specially in india.
  4. My experience with the MSI Z77A G43 can be summed up below



    A 4.5 overclock with a i5 3570K.

    MSI is fine as a motherboard maker. Still, there is little reason to get a Z77 motherboard unless one is overclocking, which just about requires a "K" series CPU. Look at H77 motherboard as well.

    Since you are considering integrated graphics, look into AMD processors. I believe this is one area in which they hold an advantage over Intel, though I've never owned an AMD processor.
  5. Pretty high voltage^^

    Will MSI ZH77A-G41 be a good motherboard for intel i3 3220. As I not want SLI or Crossfire support neither overclocking. Also is MSI ZH77A-G41 a good quality boards having lifetime about 4-5 years.
  7. I have an LGA 775 MSI mobo as my second build since 2007, but I don't have any regrets from it, it's still working well up to this date though I use it for a heavy load for about 4 years (closely to a 24/7 a week usage).
  8. That board is OK, but if you don't need to run 2 SSD or RAID with your rig, getting a B75 board instead should save you some money. MSI B75A-G43 would do.
  9. MSI ZH77A-G41 can i run a nvidia card or sli in this motherboard...?
