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.
Great bang for the buck! A10-6800k paired with 8GB Ram.

Summary: Great board. Only has 2 ram slots, not a huge deal but prices of 16GB memory modules aren't cheap enough yet to warrant an upgrade. The only thing I wish i looked at closer was to power 3 monitors this will not do it.
Summary: I purchased this as part of my first computer build for a HTPC. It came in perfect condition, as expected. Installed without any problem in the case. The CPU also fit and worked without a problem. All other components worked & are fully recognized.
Summary: A nice cheap motherboard to use with my AMD A4-5300 APU. My only complaint is about the Wake Up modes: -the Wake Up On LAN mode is moderately working -no Wake Up on USB mode The cool and quiet options are great. My HTPC works silently without heat.
Summary: I used MSI on my first gaming build and everything went flawless. I went with another brand with my second build and had problems, so I can right back to MSI. I'm using this board mainly for a media center build and coupled with the price, the amount of extra's you get for the form factor are hard...
Summary: I like this board, and it's served me quite well. My only real complaint about it would be the memory slots. First, there are only two of them. This is a budget-friendly micro-ATX board so I get that. No big deal. Second is that they're a little too close to the processor.
Summary: This is a good, basic motherboard. I put in an A10 CPU and 8gb of RAM and a decent CPU cooler and had it in my HTPC and up and running in a short time period with no issues. I had it outputting DTS-HD and Dolby TruHD easily over HDMI on Win7 with the Shark007 codec pack.
Summary: Wanted to upgrade to the newer AMD chips with their on chip graphics and I needed a PCI slot for my audio card. This is a micro-board but I put it in a full size case. Works fine with plenty of SATA plugins, All SATA, Has no IDE plug. Only two memory slots.
