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: Bought this for my media pc i built for my man cave. works perfect, allows me to use to monitors with just integrated connections. I am using AMD APU so i dont have physical GPU. Works great, for a budget build.
Summary: Oh man, are you in for a fun time. This board makes gamers smile. It's just above the standard for MMORPGs, and a lot of the games that are popular, like the Sims 3 and such. Definitely worth getting.
Summary: This is my first time to purchase a MSI motherboard and the cheapest one I've ever purchased, too. It worked the first time after turning on the power which is a wonderful feeling. By contrast I bought a Asus motherboard for more than double the money a few months ago and it has had boot problems every day I turn on the power. I swapped out everything except the CPU and still the same issues. So I think I'll stick with MSI from now on.
Excellent mid-tier board with full features for home build

Summary: Excellent mid-tier board with all the featuers i need for a mix of office and occationally gaming PC. Paired with AMD-A8-6800, Zalman fan, and a new SSD drive. Reliable and works great with my KVM in terms of recognizing graphic settings and controls from the keyboard. Have had problems with this with other MBs.
Summary: I'm always weary of boards that are high spec'd and cheap. I've gotten burned by foxconn, and I usually ignore boards that are really cheap with a lot more features than the other boards in their price range. This one isn't too extreme, but it is somewhat nicer than the other FM2 boards around 60 bucks. Most of them don't come with HDMI out and they have the lower version chipset.
Summary: Ordered this motherboard to go in a spare computer along with an AMD A4-5300 processor. I needed something inexpensive and this fit the bill. The first one I received was missing parts and obviously used/returned so I sent it back for a replacement. The second one was actually a new one. It was simple to install, the connections were all labeled in the manual and also included a couple SATA cables.
