I have had two msi motherboards, a k8n neo2 Platinum and now a k8n diamond sli.

both have been exceptional boards! i have never heard of any such a problem so i wouldnt recommend cancelling your order.

looks a goood board that you've ordered- pci-e, 939, sata...

if you've been researching a lot about it then its inevitable your going to find something bad, but a few batteries dying (which is simple + cheap to replace!) out of the thousands of boards they sell is nothing really.

Hope you like it, what are you planning to run on it?

MSi are fantastic boards, I have had a few and none have died on me, I've never changed a battery for one actually.

I think you're safe, its a well used board, its bound to happen to some people.

Every board has it's problems, no company produced products at 100% effiency, somewhere there's going to be a problem. Chances are though, that it's really slim, so I say don't cancel your order, that's a great motherboard! Keep it!

thanks for the input guys! i was seeing most of the issues of cmos dying on newegg.com reviews so hopefully i don't get this problem. some people were having cmos batts dying as quickly as 2 weeks. board looks good on paper hopefully it performs just as well!

planning to run a 64 3200+ along with a evga 6800gs and a gig of ocz enhanced latency. it should purrrrrrr.
