Summary: First unit had ram problems and no ram modules would work. Second unit is unable to change the speed of the CPU cooler. At least it uns on full speed all the tiem so over heating isn't too much of an issue,
Summary: This board DOES work with Richland processors. MSI started to make these boards with the updated Bios in May of 2013. As of December 2013 Amazon Stock the boards with the newest bios that work with Richland processors. This board works fine and I have had no trouble with it. I used the AMD A-8 6600k Richland APU.
Summary: That's all I care for. Getting something by post always has a chance of a big hassle if something goes wrong, or doesn't work. Well, there is no problem with this so far. Usually if a week goes by with solid state electronics, with no probs, chances are it will last.
Summary: This looked like a great buy; the mobo was within the specs I wanted and even though I saw some poor reviews, I did my best to look past them. In all my years of purchasing online, I've never had a product be delivered DOA, twice. I've built many custom builds before, but like most of the reviewers, I am getting the dreaded no video problem. The computer powers, but no bios and no video. Yet, when I hook up a GPU that I have laying around, it works fine. I've had it.
First build with a MSI board not a good impression

Summary: bought this board for a htpc built , Everything was delivered in good shape nothing dented crushed anything like that. Put everything together turn it on the power supply trips out try another power supply same thing the board was no good had a short in it. I also was not impressed with the quality of the board. amazon is great sent it back. bought another board different company no problems.
Summary: this mobo has alot of features that others dont have in the same price range like 6gb/s sata transfer. and i like the bios menu which is a mouse clicking type, overclocking is super easy just click and set it to how fast you want it. one thing about this board is there aren't many fan plugin's and with some cpu coolers it runs into your graphics card, same thing with the space between the ram and cpu.
