"Sound Blaster Cinema"

MSI is great for deceptive advertising.... Sound Blaster Cinema is a software addon just like X-Fi MB.....yet, MSI advertises it like they're actually using a Creative audio chipset.

Hear your enemies perfectly, even on an ear-drum shattering battlefield. Thanks to Sound Blaster Cinema, you're getting amazing surround sound with just stereo headphones. Your most important gaming sound effects are reproduced crystal clear allowing you to focus on your game even during extremely long gaming sessions.
They're using Realtek audio codec chips.....

MSI has tried to perfect this Gaming motherboard for the enthusiasts who want the best hardware to get the best performance where it counts
Very far away from perfect, that board is (Z77A-G45 GAMING). I am not sure what is MSI going for here, "El Chipo" board for the budget gamers, or maybe they are just experimenting with new color of the heat sinks...
There are so many fails there - only 2 USB3 at the back, no 90 degrees orientated SATA ports (even low end boards have that), no 90 degrees orientated USB internal plug, 24pin connector is moved further in to the memory slots, whats with the 3 PCI slots??? Something is not right with the new MSI engineering.
I hope they will have more high end MB's from those series soon.
