MSI Rolls Out H81M-E35 V2 Motherboard

MSI rolled out the H81M-E35 V2 entry-level socket LGA1150 motherboard. Designed for Core "Haswell" processors, the board draws power from a combination of 24-pin ATX and 4-pin ATX power connectors. It uses a simple 3-phase VRM to power the CPU, which is wired to two DDR3 DIMM slots, and a single PCI-Express 2.0 x16 slot. A couple of PCI-Express 2.0 x1, and a legacy PCI make for the rest of the expansion area. Storage connectivity includes two each of SATA 6 Gb/s and SATA 3 Gb/s. Display outputs include one each of DVI, D-Sub, and HDMI. Six USB 3.0 ports (four on the rear panel, two by header), six USB 2.0/1.1 ports, gigabit Ethernet, 6-channel HD audio, and legacy PS/2 connectivity make for the rest of it. Expect a sub-$100 pricing.

This is what i call a 95-percentile board.
95% of humanity will do just fine with this as it does not miss a single critical thing.

It does not extend your e-peen, so it is a miss almost for a half of humanity :D :D

But seriously speaking... I would not buy this thing for work/education also...

Why not? This isn't intended for homeless people, and could very much sit in a gaming rig

I'm running my 4670k on an H81 board at 4.5ghz and it performs stellar in games. Just need a nice big hard drive for storage and I'll be a very happy camper....that said, I'm going SLI soon so will need to update to a full size ATX board lol
