I cant begin to scream loud enough.The troubles I have had wtih my MSI,Had to RMA it now thay say oh that M/B is fine LMAO,please pay a 20% restocking fee lol.F____you I stoped payment on the entire product as well as the Abit thay shipped in it's place.

It is such a joke The IWILL AND MSI got great reviews in many Ocer sites,Many of us took the reviews and made the choice to buy a MSI and IWILL.

DO these sites get PAID to offer great reviews,The IWILL has been said to be better Than the Abit LMAO we beleaved this REVIEW.Look at the posts from IWILL owners that have PROBLEMS, thay flood this site as well as others.

I trust this site over all others and can not and will not say this site did anything that would cause it's members grief,for there own gain !!!! The actions of the people like Skip are strong proof that OVERCLOCKERS.COM is honest.

I want as many of us as possible to get together and put Iwill and Msi on notice that there product's fall way short.Thay booth claim to support processors up to 1.5 gig which isent even produced yet and then claim NOT TO SUPPORT OVERCLOCKING,Then send these boards to O/Cing sites for tests ??? Are we all in la la land or does this sound like **** to you as well.

Please IWILL and MSI owners Post here if you have problem or no problem,A simple yes it dont work, or a it works great would be cool, Then we can see if in fact problems are more than the no problems.

Don't discount the possibility that you got a bad motherboard. I did and thanks to the 30 day satisfaction guarantee at NewEgg, I have a new one coming tomorrow or Friday. It happens. No manufacturing process puts out 100% error free products at the profit margins that motherboards fetch.
I think your beef is with the reseller, not the motherboard manufacturer. The people at NewEgg were very courteous, fast and came off genuinely concerned that I was satisfied with the process. Their prices are good also. My reward to them is to tell people about my experience and give them my future business.

It sounds like the board works, just not the way you want it to (this is supposition on my part). I assume that their policy states that non-defective returns are subject to a 20% restocking fee. By stopping all payment, they may have legal ground to collect from you.

Many review sites (overclockers is an exception) get the products free to review. If a site were to bash a company's product, do you think they'd get more to review? You also need to look at how the product was tested...was it tested for an hour or a day? Did they emulate real-world conditions? ALWAYS take these type of reviews with a grain of salt and seek out comments from people that have bought the product. If something is new, there is always a price to pay to be on the "leading edge".

Because they don't operate like many others do.

Manufacturers will not officially support overclocking and build products to support more than what's on the market today.

I do not see that Iwill or MSI have a much larger number of incidents than ABit or ASUS or whoever. In fact the way in which Iwill has addressed the one issue where they screwed up is commendable - at least for this industry...

Yo

P.s.: This is really just an innocent question: What's up with your spelling? Is there some system to it (like exchange ie with ea and so on)? :v)

While building my first system, after much debating i went with the IWILL. I did so largely because of the initial overwhelmingly positive reviews the board was receiving, and its great potential for overclocking. In the past my experience with working with computer components was limited to installing a new video card or some new ram, so i was quite apprehensive to be seating the processor, installing the heat sink, setting the jumpers, mounting the mobo in the case, etc. As i finished the install, with my little newbie fingers crossed i plugged it in and turned it on. To my delight it powered right up!! Windows loaded without a problem, and encountered no problems loading drivers, programs, games, etc.

Basically with the IWILL I went from never having touched a mobo in my life to installing one and eventually using it (along with a lot of help from the forum :) )to overclock my 1G AXIA pretty effortlessly to 1400. It was a lot simpler than i had expected...any problems along the way were due to personal mistakes and not hardware screwups.

As it stands, I know that there are several good motherboards out there, and that each has its own share of diehard lovers and diehard haters (just read some of these posts!!!, you'll see what i mean). I cant judge any of the other boards because I've never worked with them, but in my opinion, none could have been faster or easier for me than the IWILL.
