Pros: I work as a technician in a computer repair shop. I deal with motherboards all day every day. In no way has this motherboard done anything but exceed expectations. I got it on sale around 2 years ago for around $70 and it is the only part on my current build I have been thoroughly satisfied with....
Cons: After 2 years of abuse (I run this thing hard and am very lazy when working on it) it has started having issues with on board audio that was fixed with a pci card. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles of a board twice its price?
Summary: This is a great motherboard overall. After a year of use it still runs like a champ with the A10-5800k apu in it. The board I received came with messed up bios. The bios are completely usable, except I can't see them when accessing them on start-up.
Summary: I've had this board for roughly 9 months now and it hasn't let me down at all. It has everything I personally look for in a motherboard. I apologize for not going more in-depth with this review, but all I can say is it is worth the buy for your FM2 setup.
Pros: - Built with quality - Very appealing design - 4 memory slots - USB 3.0 - O.C. Button and CMOS reset on the board
Cons: - Initial BIOS boot is a bit long, but not too long. (very minor con)
Summary: I have used MSI products for the last 10 or so PC's I have built and I have not ran into any problems. Their build quality is top notch! I guess I am either extremely lucky or just successful by using proper techniques and extreme care when building a machine.
Pros: Used this mobo in combination with an AMD A10-6800K processor and AMD Performance 1866mhz DDR3 RAM. Was amazed with the performance out of the box without using a discreet graphics card or AMD's Dual Graphics capabilities. Of course, I won't be doing any major gaming with this setup but still I w...
Summary: Might say that the purchase isn't verified, but that's because I received it as a gift from my wife on her account. I wanted to upgrade my system as I haven't upgraded in years and I didn't do much research this time around and I made some big mistakes.
Pros: It's a great quality motherboard and it quite a looker too. The bios are very friendly and easy to use and it was very easy to install everything. Was done in under 5 minutes.
Cons: If you're looking to upgrade to an APU there really are no cons. This is an amazing board.
