Summary: After using a MSI Socket FM2/AMD A75/DDR3/SATA3&USB3.0/A&GbE/MicroATX Motherboard FM2-A75MA-E35 (which I highly recommend) this just seems old school. The bios is just not as user friendly as the UEFI, and I couldn't get it to run at the same efficiency as the MSI (which has a nice "Eco mode" setting in its bios). My whole purpose in upgrading my computers was to save energy. For the last 3 years I've been running a Q6600 quad core, with 2 9600 GT's, watercooled.
Pros: This is a good solid motherboard with great sound. It has all the newer features a modern motherboard should have such as usb3.0 and 6Gb/s sata and hdmi. However I have not had much luck with overclocking with this motherboard.
Cons: The overclocking features are there in the BIOS, however I can not get them to work correctly. I have disabled the throttling features such as powernow and C6 state. I can get a stable 4.3ghz overclock with the A10-5800k but under full load it will still throttle to 14x multiplier. It will also throttle with stock clocks. You would not notice this unless you have cpu-z running while running prime95. I do not believe this to be an overheating issue as temp monitoring s...
Summary: After a few web searches, I found a some bios adjustment recommendations that may help others...specifically changing voltage and fan settings.
Pros: Easy to install, after bios adjustments runs fine.
Cons: Initially board had issues with shutting off while playing games (anywhere from 5-20 mins of play), when paired with AMD A10-5800K seemed to be a common issue with may reviews I've seen here or on web.
