A wifi dongle, as well as poor fan control make this board a hassle.

mchltang, Ebay
11 April 2014
  • Summary: Pros: Low power consumption, integrated Wifi/Bluetooth. Cons: The Wifi dongle sticks out of the back and is extremely easy to break off, especially if you're doing a lot of travel with this board in a case. Also, the fan control on this board is way too aggressive. I used an Noctua NH-L9a cooler on this board and the fan was idling at around 50% duty cycle the entire time. Save your money and buy a Gigabyte F2A85XN-WIFI. I switched to that board, and I have no regrets.

Good luck with this motherboard...

Ejohn, Amazon
14 March 2014
  • Summary: I just don't understand all of these positive reviews and positive remarks in the discussion section. People are like 'Is it Wifi ready?' and others are like 'Sure is pal'. No one here is mentioning that both the bluetooth and the wifi do not work with Windows 8.1, and it will probably never work with any future iteration of Windows because MSI and Atheros have stopped updating the drivers long ago. How can this be? The board was just released less than 2 years ago!

A Very Small and Fully Loaded Motherboard

Angelo A., Amazon
28 January 2014
  • Summary: I was more than impressed with this motherboard. I started this project with the idea of making an HTPC/streaming living room box, it turned into a homemade Steam Machine It became a small form factor gaming rig and it absolutely does the job. Installation was a breeze, everything connected as it should with no issues. The UEFI instead of BIOS is amazing. Full GUI and mouse support is leaps and bounds beyond what we remember BIOS to look like.

Seems Nice

metalforever, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this a few months ago. It has been working trouble-free and better than any of the other builds I have tried. I am very happy with it overall. If you're a linux user, you're better off buying some sort of cheap graphics card to complement the build, as using an APU doesn't work as well in Linux as you'd suspect. The only obvious con of the board itself is the wifi component attachment.

Good quality MOBO, but not without a few gripes

Roughin' It "Tom", Amazon
18 October 2013
  • Summary: After reading a zillion (ok, not that many), it seemed that no one had a clear "best motherboard brand" or a valid explanation why. So, I decided to opt for MSI. To be completely honest, there aren't many Mini-ITX Mobos out there to choose from, so my options were definitely limited. I knew I wanted AMD APU support and USB 3.0 support. This was one of the even fewer mobo's that checked both of those boxes.

Cheap, works. Comes with a little external Wifi card!

  • Summary: Tbh, i'm quite new to the PC building scene, so I apologize of I get some stuff wrong =) First off - this motherboard works. I have yet to do any overclocking, but from daily use it hasn't failed me yet working with the A10-5800k. Suprised me that it came with a little wifi adapter (I dont remember it being included in the description) which works OKAY until your able to get your drivers and other stuff installed - then you really need to get an actual WiFi card because...

MSI great little board

Amazon Customer, Amazon
23 August 2013
  • Summary: Pros: Small. Like most ITX boards it only has 1 PCIE slot and 4 SATA ports. But I just want a small gamer. USB 3.0 Header attachment will come loose on you so be careful.
