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: The back story: ------------------- OMG! I have been living in a bubble for way too long. Back in 2002/2003 I stopped building my own systems. PC Compatible and Plug And Play didn't work like they were supposed to. So buying a Dell worked out great.
Summary: For a first time ever building a new rig, I had no real difficulties...I love the One Click over-clock feature, even though the manual really wasn't that clear on a few features, but I muddled my way through. Overall, I'm quite satisfied with it!
Summary: As a longtime Asus fan, I recently decided to try MSI for a recent build for graphics. Visually build quality is vary good, install went without a hitch. I really like the new chipset and processor that this board uses. vary snappy performance. Amazons price was the best, so ...
Summary: Great looking board, No problems setting it up both mechanically and with the BIOS. Plenty of SATA connections(8). Have had this board over 4 months. Using this board with a A10-5800K processor, 4 WD VelociRaptor 250 GB drives in RAID 10, 32 GB of corsair memory with Windows 8 Pro OS.
