2 out of 5 eggsNot for 2 video cards

Pros: Works, mostly

Cons: This board was bought almost solely for the dual PCI e lanes to run dual OC'd 7950 cards. This board can't handle it. Same setup works fine with other board. This one is useless to me

Manufacturer Response:

Dear EngMan,

We apologize for the issues that you are having with this product.

This product supports CrossFire using one x16 and one x4 lanes.
http://www.msi.com/product/mb/A75MA-G55.html#?div=Basic

However, the other requirement is if the video card requires more than x4 to work, then you would encounter such hardware limitation.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the product, please do not hesitate to contact us directly at usreview@msi.com and we will be more than happy to assist you, thank you.

Best Regards,
MSI Review Team | usreview@msi.com

5 out of 5 eggsGold Standard with goodies!

Pros: Came with an extra 2 x USB 3.0 ports in the form of a card slot plug in that you could plug into a 3.0 on the mobo. HDMI cable was a nice touch solid board clean look!

Cons: None, it's military class!

3 out of 5 eggsIncomplete Screen Fill w/ HDMI

Pros: It has a north bridge to tie together all the important parts of a computer. That's a plus.

Cons: When using the HDMI output, video does not fill the entire display device. Using the catalyst controls, I can move the screen but when I try to push the top edge further up, it vanishes and is less than useful.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear stout,

Thank you for your review of this motherboard.

I believe the scaling might need to be adjusted to match your display. Scaling can be adjusted through the Catalyst Control Center. You can read more about it here: http://service.msicomputer.com/html/popup/TechSup/formviewer.asp?esoformid=2899

If you still have issues, feel free to contact us directly via usreview@msi.com.

1 out of 5 eggsBlue screen first day and after replacement MSI mobo, AMD A8 and gSkill 8 gig ripjaws memory

Pros: Newegg had good price for what I thought was a fast system, hdmi, USB3, etc. Nice case.

Cons: Memory check sum errors, other errors causing blue screens. Got replacements for MSI A75MA-G55, the AMD A8, and the (2) 4 gig gSkill ripjaws memory. Still have same problem. Will boot and run a while with (1) 4 gig memory in blue slot 4. Dies on a checksum or various other errors with the old and the new ripjaws (2) 4 gig sticks in slots 4 and 2. Power supply is only thing have not replaced. Have installed Windows 7 Home Premium about 7 times. First attempts got many many Microsoft Windows 7 update failures then the later installs/updates have fewer yet some....

Could it be the PSU? Hate to spend any more time or money on this frustrating MSI, AMD, gSkill combo.

Ironically in the same order I got a Intel iCore3 system for $200 less. Works flawlessly. Never ever a problem. Has MSI board also.

Other Thoughts: I would like to return it to Newegg but it has taken me nearly a year to get to this point being retired and living in Guadalajara Mexico. Getting parts shipped back cost $50/ea for the mobo and cpu. Waited to pick them up on trips to the USA. !@#$!

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

We apologize for the issues that you are having with our product.

Memory errors are usually caused by either a defective processor, or memory module. Please kindly try one stick of RAM at a time and use memtest86 utility (free download from www.memtest.org) to verify if there's any errors with a particular module, or all modules.

If you get to the bottom of the issue and if it happens to be the motherboard, then please kindly visit the URL below to set up a RMA with the following information.

2 out of 5 eggsLinux users: not the board you're looking for

Pros: This is a feature complete board for an AMD Fusion CPU. On paper, it looks amazing.

Cons: In reality, as a Linux user, I'm disappointed with MSI's support. Don't misconstrue: all the hardware on the board is supported out of the box on any major Linux distro (I'm running openSUSE 12.2 RC1 on it right now).

My problem is that you can't even download BIOS images; you have to use a Windows app to update the BIOS. So, I spent 6 hours installing and updating Windows 7, just so I was in a position to do a BIOS flash.

MSI: would it kill you to just offer the BIOS bin file for download?!?

---

Also - audio is *super* noisy. So figure on buying a sound card too.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It seems nicely built, has a nice number of ports and ram slots. Easy install.

Cons: The board seems to have many issues tied with it. Can't really tell but I feel it may be defective. It errors every so often when booting up. It also seems to have an issue with the audio out inputs.

Other Thoughts: I've tried to do what I can to resolve fixing the issues, but it really seems like the board itself is messed up. I've gotten many errors, ranging from RAM replacement, video errors, and one I've been experiencing a lot at the moment, CPU errors. All the parts have been tested, so my only conclusion is it's the motherboard that is at fault. I like the board, but I wish it wasn't filled with lil defects like that.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued MSI Customer,

We would like to apologize for the issue you have experienced with this particular MB. Please email me directly via USUserSupport@msi.com or call us at 1-626-271-1004 Press 1 your MB's serial number and your complete contact information, subject heading "MSIA75MA-G55". I would like to help you get this resolved.

3 out of 5 eggsGood Mobo if you get a working one

Pros: Very good motherboard to support the FM1 AMD processors.

Cons: My mobo will randomly drop a SATA HDD, lose video and give me random blue screens. The only time I have an issue with the HDD dropping is when I am playing Aion and once when I was playing Fallout NV. I have not been able to recreate the issue anywhere else. I've moved the installation of the games to different hard drives with no effect. I've even went as far as running 3 different stress tests on the entire system at once without being able to recreate the issue. I'm not really sure what is causing the problem, but what leads me to believe this is a mobo issue is every once in a while the system will freeze on POST and take approximately 15 minutes to boot up. I have been able to hard boot the computer while frozen like this and it will start up normally after.

Other Thoughts: Seems to be a large issue with flaky and DOA mobos. QA seems to be lacking.

5 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: Looks good, runs good, things snap in easily. Easily detected ram and CPU, at correct settings and also correctly determined I was using a second video card as my main card. Love the little pin blocks for hooking cables to before you put them on the board. Everyone should do this.

Cons: Not a con, but upper edge on size for a micro atx.

Other Thoughts: Doesn't crossfire with a 6870. I knew that. Bought it anyway as my friend does a lot of 3d rendering and I figured the on board Gpu would help. I was correct, lowest windows experience score was a 7.7 and video renders fast and looks incredible. I'm really thinking benchmarking scores need to be rethought. This motherboard with 16gigs of a 1600, a a8-3870, and a msi 6870 with a 128 sata iii performs better than a lot of much higher priced units I've seen. Total build cost was just under a $1000 I really think its this main board tying everything together that gives it that performance. One last thought: bios setup looks a little weird and can be odd to navigate if you're used to older bioses. That being said, if you stop and think, everything's where it should be, oc menu is awesome, and it's intuitive. You should have no issues.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very easy to install; free HDMI cable (saves a couple of bucks); the Bios mouse is actually not that bad, it's not 1-to-1 tracking, but it works, so I was surprised by that; Drivers all installed first time around. Color coded interface which is very vibrant and easily read; The text along the motherboard is very legible, as I know some motherboards you can never make out what is written, but not the problem with this one.

Cons: Wish it came with some screws, as we only had 3 and it has around 6 holes; along with the driver thing, LiveUpdate doesn't work on my computer, I try to run it, but get the blue screen everytime; USB 3.0 doesn't work? Still trying to figure that out.

Other Thoughts: First time buying MSI and overall am completely satisfied because this is a huge upgrade from my last motherboard. Sure there are a couple of bugs I have to fix, but I am satisfied with the result.
