Summary: very good MoBo for the price i got it for in a bundle with a 2.7 cpu already got the board maxed out on the ram(8 GB) that it came with and no problems yet OC the video card for a couple months at a time kind disapointed the cpu was a locked verison
Summary: The headline says it all. I had it up and running in a half an hour except the front audio because my case has lots of connections and I don't use the front audio anyway. I plan on purchasing more of them to upgrade family members PCs.
Summary: The A55M-P33 is great for upgrading a WinXP or Vista era PC to Win7. Everything is integrated so all you need is the mobo, some DDR3, Llano CPU, SATA hdd and SATA optical drive to throw inside a MicroATX or larger case. Power usage stays under 120 watts even at boot or full load. PSU needs only the std 24-pin, 4-pin 12v and SATA power plugs for your drives, btw. Stock AMD cooler works fine & board includes 3 & 4 pin case fan headers.
Summary: This board was DOA, I sent it in to MSI and they sent me a replacement. The board they sent was also defective, most of the time it will not even boot. When it does the video output is a scrambled mess. Never buying MSI products again!
Summary: Used for new build. working good. wish it had usb3 ports. Software that came with it seems to conflict with win 8 pro 64 bit when you try to update some drivers. I have not checked recently for a win 8 version.
Summary: I got this because it was the cheapest FM1 socket motherboard with a PCI-E 2.0 x16 slot, and support for 1600 MHz RAM. I don't regret buying it. I have some concern as to the longevity of it, but it has a 3 year warranty, so that concern is almost alleviated. This thing works, and it works well. I have no issues with it, and I would recommend it to anyone who wants an FM1 motherboard that isn't consistently over $50.
