Cooling Issues

CreoleLakerFan, Amazon
11 July 2013
  • Summary: This board has design issues which lead to MOSFET/VRM overheating. Fortunately I read reviews after I purchased it, but before installing this board. 15% restocking fee isn't great, but it's a lot better than the entire system melting down.

Outstanding. USE DEBIAN. Not Ubuntu as of this moment at least

Brian T. Clem, Amazon
31 March 2013
  • Summary: I read all the horror stories on the web ... But let me tell you about my experience... 1. I bought 2 part thermal paste to really get the heatsinks to stick. only $5 and soooo worth it!! 2. I had extra heat sinks from old vga installs... so I went to my bandsaw and fit EVERY cap and VRN or whatever the square ones are... I then set the heatsink usingh the 2 part thermal paste. 3. I got a Corsair H70 with a super quiet 120mm fan. Now all heat is outside the case 4.

Overheating issue

Expert Review "Engineer", Amazon
26 March 2013
  • Summary: This motherboard is known for it's overheating issues. Do an internet search for "FM2A75M-ITX FM2 fire". You should go for an ASRock FM2A85X-ITX or MSI FM2-A75IA-E53. You would also do well to check into the Micro-ATX format as an option.

STAY AWAY! Serious issues with this motherboard

jalagl, Amazon
28 January 2013
  • Summary: I bought this motherboard since it is the only FM2 miniITX board available for a small HTPC/TV gaming build using an A10-5700/8GB RAM in an Antec ISK 300-150 SFF case. It has been nothing but a big headache, until it finally died yesterday. First of all, from the very beginning I was having stability issues. It looked like the CPU or the system was overheating, causing the computer to shut down by itself.

Good motherboard, but some issues for high-end A10

Mohamad Saeed Abdulla Ahmad "9a3eedi", Amazon
20 December 2012
  • Summary: This motherboard is great. It has all sorts of neat features in the UEFI bios, like updating the firmware from within the UEFI itself, among others (it's my first time buying a motherboard with UEFI and I'm pleasantly surprised). My favorite thing in this motherboard is how FAST it goes through POST. I bought this motherboard alongside the AMD A10 5800k (the highest end APU I can find).

Fits in an old Mac G4 case & runs Linux too, nice!

MadMacMan "queeg-500", Amazon
24 July 2014
  • Summary: I wanted a board with the DIMM sockets at one end like this so I could fit it into an old Mac G4 tower case I had lying around, without having to do much cutting of the internals and leaving me space to use the drive bays as is. It took me a while to modify the case carefully so this would sit correctly and the I/O ports were accessible, but I did it, with a new Enermax NAXN 500W power supply I managed to squeeze in where the old Mac one was, a Thermaltake water cooler...
