2 out of 5 eggsDriver Disk Bad

Pros: It was cheap ( Too Cheap )

Cons: The chip set drivers included causes BSD's about every 15 minutes.
Go get the latest from AMD BEFORE install.I installed Catalyst 14-4. And choose rhe custom install , and un-check the boxes for the 2 apps it will want to install. One is for games the other for streaming the games. They will drain your bandwidth dry.
Another thing,,I has NEVER properly recognized any USB 3.0 device, and may have even killed a USB thumb drive.

Other Thoughts: I was unemployed when I built this machine ,otherwise I would have never cheeped out and bought this MoBo. MSI ,Never Again. This board has never really been what you could call stable. Windows 7 has been reinstalled at least six times trying . Today was number 7 I think ?
I have so many problems with MSI it would take too long to list. This was the last straw. As builder I wish I could bill them for all the time I spent on this MoBo.

5 out of 5 eggsBIOS update

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

Other Thoughts: 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. Don't really notice any difference in everyday use, but I recommend flashing the BIOS, at least with the A8-5600K APU.

5 out of 5 eggsOne Year old and Richland

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 no better Tower Rig in the world for the money. I also got GeIL up to 1900 or so leaving the 2133 as overhead for TURBO.

These clocks are so EZ and cool this has to be the future.

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.

Other Thoughts: 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.

5 out of 5 eggsLinux friendly.

Pros: I use this board to run a CentOS Server. BIOS allows you to EASILY switch any bootable device (USB, hard drives, DVD/CD) between "legacy boot" mode and (ahem) "Windows Monopoly-Preservation Boot". For me, this was a required feature.

Board is low-cost, the layout is very clean, and it runs flawlessly so far.

I'm using DDR3-1600, although it does support faster memory. WD 'black' hard drive. PSU is high-quality, active PFC. new 'Trinity' A6. My system load is relatively low, and I hardly ever use graphical desktop. (Unless using GUI update tools and Server controller programs, I set runlevel=3.) I don't use any overclocking, because it's a 24x7 Server.

Obviously, I'm not any sort of "stress test" configuration. But everything has been great so far. I typically have it running for 1-3 weeks at a time.

Cons: none so far.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: None

Cons: Never got the motherboard to post. DOA.

Other Thoughts: Based on the suggestion of MSI support, RMA'd since it was a brand new purchase. Based on the support received from Newegg to figure why my replacement RMA turned into a refund RMA, will be hesitant to purchase from again.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks well

Pros: Built for a local car shop to store invoices.

Stable under stock clocks and voltages

detects ram and cpu settings properly.

Cons: MSI bios for their low end boards always annoy me and seem to lack in features that other brands would have at the same price point.

Other Thoughts: Overall I am satisfied. No weird coil noises or stability issues noticed. Would buy again if the price was the best in town.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat motherboard, Excellent value.

Pros: -All solid caps.
-No issues during setup
-USB 3.0
-SATA 3
-Seems to be high-quality

Used with an A10 6700 and it worked great with absolutely no issues. Up-to-date drivers were easy to find on the MSI website. Everything seems fully functional and it has given no issues at all as of yet. Great low-cost, high-quality motherboard.

Cons: -Only 2 RAM slots

No real cons that come to mind. I wish it had 4 RAM slots, but I knew it had 2 going in. For the price, I certainly can't complain.

Other Thoughts: Great value! As with any motherboard, I recommend going to the manufacturer website and getting the most up to date drivers rather than using the CD that comes with it.
