Nice, solid little board

Summary: I can't speak of the longevity of the board, seeing as I have only had it a week, but it's in my Raven RVZ01 case now and it's been pushing my 7850k at 4.2GHZ with ease, as of now.
Pros: Great, solid little board. The construction quality is on par with my Sabertooth 990fx...supports fast and plentiful memory, at 64GB's...which, I don't think you could ever want even half of that in DDR3...DDR4, sure...
Cons: Only a 4+2 power phase system(4 CPU, 2 RAM). This makes casual OC'ng doable, but it's better than any other options out there right now...I believe the MSI board only has 4+1(4 CPU, 1 RAM), which makes it not as good for OC'ng memory.
Summary: It does its job well. I did have an issue using this MB with the 7850k processor, then again I did build this in a Cooler Master elite 110, so that might've caused the overheating/freezing, of which I eventually solved by turning off the turbo setting of the CPU in the BIOS setup. Other than that it seems to run very well.
Summary: This seems like it would be a great board, running window 7 Ultimate, everything in the windows experience is @ 7.9 score
Pros: very nice layout
Cons: This is the 3rd board that wont post into bios, the first board would not post at all. nor did any board have the updated f4 or even the f3 bios, the operating system installed with no problems, (windows 7 Ultimate). usb 3.0 not working either. swapped out the apu's with an a4, a6, a8, a10-5800k, and even tried the a10-7850k, (after updating to f4 bios) tried 3 different brands of ram also, still a black bios screen. i even installed an xfx r9 gpu to see if that would...
Summary: I didn't read the reviews claiming that this board didn't support the A10-7850k until after it shipped. I was very pleased to find that the board had been updated and everything worked on the first boot attempt. Pros: A10-7850k support Wifi/bluetooth Cons: None so far. I would recommend this motherboard to anyone looking for a small build to pair with an A10 who needs wifi OTB. I built this thing as a Steambox, and so far it hasn't disappointed.
Summary: If you are trying to build a mini-itx machine like I did then this is the board you want. Perfect for my DIY brand case. Fit perfectly, can fit an A10 processor in it for speed, I've got 16gb of RAM and an MSI Graphics Card N760 2GD5/OC ITX. I would highly recommend getting that graphics card with this board because they work great together. Plus the built in wifi/bluetooth is great. Really fast and stops you from having to buy an adapter.
Summary: I'm not sure if this is an on going issue, but this item did not want to work at all. At first, it would not even power up at all. I attempted reseating, completely unassembling, and resetting everything. Since there is no on board sound, there was no way to even diagnose the issue. At one point it wanted to work for maybe all of two seconds and then it went pack to no POST. I will be returning this item and reordering another one.
Summary: The board for the most part works as intended it is very easy to over clock for beginners this is my first PC I've built myself. The really user friendly bios was nice. I also liked that this is the only Fm2 Mobo I've seen on the market that supports 2133mhz ram and is stable. This board is great if you plan to use the AMD a10 6800.
Summary: I installed this 3 days ago and already not working properly. The video card must be faulty the picture is plury and keeps going in and out. Contacting support on line is difficult, you have to register in a number of areas. Keep in mind I am not a techie just an old guy that likes tecki stuff.
