Works

thomas c., Newegg
6 February 2015
  • Summary: Turns out to be an exceptional value. I prefer MSI's UEFI BIOS over the other brands.
  • Pros: I have owned this over a year and it is great. Has plenty of IO at the rear and on board for a MATX board. Front and rear USB 3.0. It is in a HTPC with an A10-5800K so I don't overclock. It works and was inexpensive.
  • Cons: front panel audio connectors all the was at the rear of the board. Not that I ever use it.

  • Summary: I was trying to put together a new cheap build without going over 300 dollars and this motherboard plus an AMD A8-5600k and 4 gigs of ram came out to a whopping 230 bucks, I used my old power supply that I bought a few months prior, and a salvaged case. Upgrading is annoying.
  • Pros: I bought this motherboard last February. I was shopping for a cheap build to replace my aging 2008 build. I bought this one in person, but had been searching around here on newegg reading reviews and such trying to narrow down a motherboard. They had this one at the local place and I liked the pr...
  • Cons: I recall that where the video card goes, was kinda of a stupid smashed spot. My video card is extremely huge, the old 9800 GTX. I delayed in getting a new video card. Also the ram slots are only 2, and thats kinda of inconvenient if you want to upgrade and all you have is the two slots currently ...

BIOS update

David H., Newegg
6 April 2014
  • Summary: APU - A8-5600K Windows 7 professional The system runs well but I wanted to benchmark it. Windows Experience Index was 4.8 for graphics. Cinebench OpenGL test was low - 18.23. After doing a BIOS update from version 2.2 to 2.3 the scores went up - 6.7 WEI and 29.60 Cinebench.
  • Pros: been using for a couple of months and no problems; wanted sata III (for ssd mostly) and wanted usb 3.0, which is why I got the A75 as opposed to the A-55 (had to add a hyphen because of inappropriateness)
  • Cons: making sure the APU and cooler/fan are working as they should has been a bit mystifying running Windows 7 and Xubuntu 13.10, but not sure if this is because of the motherboard or AMD or my ignorance, so no egg dropping

One Year old and Richland

Paul P., Newegg
1 April 2014
  • Summary: These 4.0+ clocks and 30C temps.....what is not to like. Graphics looks good. Not all the eyecandy of a HD7970 Ghz 3MB XFX I got with a i7n 3930. BUT I can see swapping out of IGD. BUT you are good to go with a 400-450w PSU with IGD.
  • Pros: Four stars for performance and price. I am RIchland on this one year old board. I am bragging as I had the old time getting the Richland in. The Trinity was cool but I saw the other Trinity dual-core platform looking for a quad AND I wanted the hottest FM2 for me and Saints Row IV. There can be n...
  • Cons: See MSI tell you this older model needs a Trinity CPU to flash to the Richland....There is a new version so not an issue.

Great little micro ATX board

J.J. Tech Enthusiast, Amazon
16 March 2014
