Sometimes Electrolytic Capacitors, do not show visual signs of failure. The Electrolytic Paste didn't develop gas inside, it just dried up. (No bulging case, no rubber seal blown out, no paste oozing out)

The 'Caps' located around the processor, are Voltage Regulators for the processor. These 'Caps' are critical.
Processors must have 'clean', steady, supply. Their tolerance range is very small.

IF even One of these 'Caps' are bad, the processor will not start up, or keep running.
(BIOS senses the in-discrepancy, and will not turn the processor on, or will quickly turn it off)

The replacement capacitors must have the same Microfarads, and voltage.

Not doubting your soldering/electronic skills for one minute but,

1.If you have a cold solder joint, or burnt the trace on the motherboard

2.Did not follow anti-static guidelines,

3.Did not remove all hardware components from the motherboard before soldering,
(i.e, Processor, Ram Memory, and so forth)

4.Accidentally forgot to attach the 4-pin ATX power cable, from PSU to Motherboard

5.Do not have all Ram memory Modules fully seated

6.Do not have the 24-pin ATX Main power cable plugged in all the way.

7.Harddrive/s is/are, do not have the interface cable plugged in, or not fully seated.

The computer will not boot up either. Sometimes in our haste we become too zealous, and accidentally overlook some of the simple things.

As for any inherent issues dealing with this MSI motherboard, none to my knowledge

Did the motherboard work before you replaced and bad caps.?
If so, check the surface mount connection on each cap and make sure each is seen be the board.
This looks like a Laptop Motherboard ??
If so, good try, take your time and go over it again.

The most likely solution is to replace any Capacitors that have blown in the onboard power circuit. Look for a Capacitor that has got a very bulging top in the region of the power connector.
