Sound does not work out of the box so you need to do a bit of tweaking. Add the following line to your /etc/modprobe.conf (or your distro's equivalent) file:
options snd-hda-intel model=3stack-6ch-dig
Then reboot your machine. Unfortunately even with this tweak the subwoofer and microphone still don't work properly.
The sound issue is the main problem with running the MSI EX625 under Linux. The other major features work just fine.
