3 out of 5 eggsGreat little board, wish I got the newer model

Pros: Great little board, good layout, nice that it has WIFI and Bluetooth built in. Good build quality and nicely laid out.

Cons: The WiFi antenna hangs by a thread and falls out all the time. Wifi works without the antenna but there is a rang decrease. I usually have a wired connection but this could be a problem for someone who is unable to run a wire. I noticed they went with a screw in antenna in the newer model.

Other Thoughts: Over all I am very happy with this board and MSI in general. These APUs are impressive, I have this system connected to my game room's projector and it runs most games on high settings without a dedicated graphics card.

5 out of 5 eggs2nd one is ok too

Pros: FM2, HDMI support, USB 3, 6Gb/s SATA, WiFi, Gigabit LAN, eSATA port, GUI based BIOS is easy to work with, 32 GB Max, DDR3 1866 natively, etc.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: This is my second build using this MB and just like the first it ran right from the get go. Don't' know if I'm experiencing some type of "other OS" memory block but, Windows 8 installs with this board flawlessly (boot from USB DVD.)

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: None

Cons: Never made it POST and no beeps to trouble shoot. Never displayed anything on screen. Pretty much DOA. I see a lot of these types of reviews for this mobo and I wish I took heed. Just a bad batch or...?

4 out of 5 eggsNice board with built in wifi

Pros: Built in WiFi is a plus. Everything works as it should and bios is easy to navigate.

Cons: No audio beeps, and location of sata ports make it tricky to route sata cables in a mini atx case.

1 out of 5 eggsBurned by MSI

Pros: No Pros - does not boot with Richland CPU

Cons: Needs BIOS update to work with Richland CPU - but I don't have a Trinity CPU to make the update. Nice setup to update from USB but it's useless w/o the downgrade CPU - duh.

Other Thoughts: Why does this happen? Mobo vendors sell product with known problems with next gen CPUs then vendors (NewEgg) ship them out to customers who want next gen CPUs on mobos - which are marked 'Richland ready' - if the mobo is 'Richland ready' it should boot with Richland CPU. The circus of having to buy an obsolete CPU to update a mobo that is 'ready' for a new CPU is absurd. This is the last MSI mobo I will buy - ever.

Manufacturer Response:

If this product was purchased on Newegg after Jun 2013 then it is Richland ready.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Value Mobo

Pros: I purchased two of these for two mini-itx builds and both were built very well, as well as Cooler master hyper evo 212 compatible.

Cons: The MSI bios/drivers gave me some severe troubles on one board forcing me to reset the C-MOS multiple times.
Only 2 fan slots. (1 CPU, 1 other)

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: None, would not work.

Cons: I have built a few computers, and I have even owned a msi mobo before. This is the first time I have ever had this kind of problem.

I was not getting a POST, no beep. Checked to see if it was RAM, tried a different type, different row (1 or 2) and even none at all. Got 3 beeps. I've also have never had a CPU fry on me so I am assuming it is the mobo. Sending it back and getting a different company.

Other Thoughts: Just DOA. Probably a bad one but I am not going to try again. Going to look at another company.

1 out of 5 eggsNo Beeps No Video

Pros: The motherboard fits in the case.and turns on. The CPU fan spins, as with the other system fans.

Cons: There is no audio beep to inform me of anything during post. My VGA monitor which i am using now does not receive a signal from this board. My TV (which also works) does not receive a HDMI signal from this board.

Therefore I can only believe that this board is defective, and a waste of time.

Other Thoughts: First board I bought from MSI and I am very disappointed by the utter lack of quality control. I think a 2 minute sound check at MSI would have taken less time than for me to log on New Egg and write this review.

5 out of 5 eggsMSI Mini ITX AMD rocks

Pros: This is the 3rd one I bought in the past year. This time I used a Richland A10-6800k. Since the BIOS was already flashed to v2.2 before I got it, it booted right up. No problems with anything.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Strangely, the graphics performance of the Richland was lower than the Trinity A10-5700. It could have been the drivers or a BIOS setting. I don't know.
What ports are Super Charged? 2.0 or 3.0? What's the output?
The MSI website doesn't say.
