4 out of 5 eggsMSI FM2

Pros: 6 SATA 3 ports
USB 3.0 Header- for case with front USB 3.0 (problem)
I like the small form factor.
I generally like MSI boards and I have had really good experience with their customer service as well, and that is huge!
On board HDMI,DVI,6 USB ports(2 are 3.0,4 are 2.0)
The price is right.

Cons: The BIOS was a little weird at first. I could not save my changes in the BIOS it would just hang. I thought I was going to have to send this board back. I think my board came with version 1.5. I flashed the BIOS to 2.2 and it fixed the problem.
The USB 3.0 Header for the front of my case pulled out of the motherboard when I decided to tidy up the cable management. When I pulled the USB 3.0 connecter from the case at the proper angle and at the plug much to my surprise the header came out of the motherboard. I had to attempt to carefully put the header back on without bending pins (It did not work). I ended up getting a USB 3.0 to 2.0 adapter so I could use the front case port. sill the board has 2 USB 3.0 on the back.

Other Thoughts: I will continue to use MSI; I think the boards are quality(despite the header issue). I believe their customer service is much better than any other board maker out there. I have always gotten through and had my questions answered.

3 out of 5 eggsClash: PCI slot vs front-panel USB3.0

Pros: Compact, low cost.

Cons: Components on card in PCI slot *prevent* cable access for front-panel USB3.0 and may even hinder front-panel USB2.0.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat job by MSI

Pros: Works great
OCGenie (even though manual overclocking is a bit better)
It has what you need

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I originally had an issue with the board, but it turned out to be my stupid external hard drive...so the computer booted up fine after I unplugged it. Great board, I would definitely recommend!

1 out of 5 eggsMSI quality on a downfall

Pros: 6Gbps, HDMI, solid appearance, attractive sale price.

Cons: POST failure. Everything powers on but no POST, no video, no nothing but spinning fans. Luckily it was an epic fail from the start rather than malfunctioning months down the line. That much was satisfying.

Other Thoughts: Now on to the bigger picture, which is the real reason for my poor rating. Two years ago when I was about to do my first build, the computer techs I talked with spoke mostly of Gigabyte, Asus, MSI, and AsRock concerning motherboards. MSI and Asus were the most highly recommended. I bought an MSI 970a g45 which was supposed to be am3+ compatible. My FX processor would not post so I inserted an Athlon and it did. I had to flash the BIOS to use my FX processor. I was aggravated but no love lost. I bought another MSI board I had to manually install the Ethernet controller driver to get to the internet to install updates. Still nothing to be too bothered by. To be fair I bought yet another MSI 880 series board that worked perfectly after I realized I had to repositoon a jumper to use HDMI video. I thought "That was weird." Now this thing will power on and that is all it will do. It would be perfect for testing fans and nothing else. The point I am trying to make is that builders are still talking about Asus and Gigabyte, and AsRock has its loyal customers who swear by AsRock. But MSI's notoriety is on the decline with people like me who are having unpleasant or (in this case) bad experiences with their boards. I have had better experiences with Asus and Gigabyte but I keep coming back to MSI. Now I don't know if I want to trust them anymore. And I hope no one from MSI will post that routine, insincere, apology suggesting the problem was not with MSI or their product after my review. I have tried two APU's, two different PSU's, and memory from their own list with no peripherals or add-ons connected. The problem is the board, which, by the way, was sticky on the underside as if something was spilled on it. What I would like is for them to get back their quality control.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

We apologize for the issues that you are having with this product.
Are you using a Trinity or Richland processor? Did you purchase the board before June 4th?

Please kindly get in touch with our tech support team directly at 626.271.1004 for assistance during regular business hours from M to F, 6am to 6pm Pacific Time, or you can email us at usreview@msi.com, thank you.

2 out of 5 eggsDoesn't support Richland out of the box

Pros: Cheap, decent features. All solid caps, A85, 6 SATA III ports, HDMI, USB3, etc.

Cons: Does not support Richland out of the box. It does support it through a BIOS flash, but you need a Trinity APU to perform the BIOS flash. That doesn't really help me, as I purchased the board new with an A10-6800k.

As for the board, the I/O shield is unusually sharp, I cut myself on it twice. The rightmost edge of the board didn't link up with any screw holes in my case (Fractal Design Core 1000) and the ATX power connector is there, so I had to shove some cardboard under there so I didn't flex the board too much getting it plugged in.

Other Thoughts: MSI's support is fairly abysmal. I tried opening tickets through their website and every time I hit submit it would take me to an "Under Construction" page. They said they would update the board is I sent it in but that I would have to pay S/H and there would be a 3-4 week turn around time. I opted to buy a $50 A4-5300 to try and do the update to Richland myself.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

We apologize for any inconvenience has caused.

First, I would like to inform you that official launch date for Richland processors was June 4th.
Motherboard shipment before June 4th do not have the Richland BIOS to support Richland processors.
Motherboard shipment after June 4th have the Richland BIOS to support Richland processors.

Second, if your system is somewhat functional:
What are functional with your system so far? Does it allow you to install and boot to an OS? Does it allow you to access the UEFI BIOS?
This is something we can try before we proceed to the 3rd option below.

Third, if you have just purchased the motherboard, you can contact Newegg directly for a motherboard swap.
But if you have purchased the motherboard from a while back but do not have a Trinity processor to perform BIOS update, then please kindly visit the URL below to set up a RMA with the following information.
http://service.msicomputer.com/msi_user/rma_form_new.aspx

1. Full name (first, and last)
2. Telephone #

1 out of 5 eggsBoard ruined going to Richland

Pros: Worked for a few months

Cons: I bought a Richland CPU, the board failed during the required bios update and is ruined.

Seriously MSI, you won't let the computer boot with a Richland chip, then you have to run an exe file on a flash drive in windows to do the required bios update? How stupid is that?

I put my trinity chip back in, started the update, and fail. So much for my upgrade excitement.

5 out of 5 eggsBest A85X board value

Pros: Fairly priced A85X board. Good for overclocking.

Cons: I wasn't able to hit "save and exit" in the bios until I updated it.

4 out of 5 eggsAlmost solid

Pros: Easy setup and install. Board does everything I need it to.

Cons: The BIOS is faulty. I couldn't save and exit without the BIOS freezing until I discovered a trick. Instead of clicking Save and Exit or hitting F10, I found that if I clicked the X in the top right corner of the screen I got a pop up window that asked if I wished to Save and Exit. If I do that I don't get any freezup in the BIOS and my system restarts as it should. Haven't tried flashing to 2.0 (from 1.7) to see if that fixes the freezup issue.

Other Thoughts: Overall, a great board. Will continue to buy MSI motherboards.

Manufacturer Response:
