Great Motherboard for HTPC + Gaming, XBMC, USB3.0, HDMI
3 December 2012
Summary: First of all, the quality of the board is perfect, well made with lots of onboard options for anyone looking to build a decent computer. I paired the MSI A75MA-G55 FM1 with an A8-3870K, MSI ATI 6670HD card and 8GB of Kingston HyperX Ram. This is a MicroATX board and was perfect for the case that I had saved from a previous build to setup an HTPC. Very easy to setup/install of all components and was able to post fairly quickly before placing the board into the case.
Summary: I had an issue where my computer would blue screen after adding this motherboard in along with new RAM. At first I thought it was the RAM so I removed 1 stick and was running fine for a month. After the month I switched the second RAM stick into the slot that the first RAM stick was located and again it was working for a good month. When I put the first stick back into the second slot again my computer started to blue screen.
Summary: Little disappointed, year of manufacture is 2011 and the box looks very old. Inside of the box the manual of edges were ripped and my first feeling that flipkart has delivered used Mobo, but the product looked as such pristine from the looks. Nevertheless I am happy after doing lot of research pin down to MSI A75MA-G55. Pros 3 fan controllers 4 3.0 usb Cons 1.no spdif out on the rear, however mother board as the pin which can be hooked up with spdif header 2.
