5 out of 5 eggsGreat Board for Budget FM2 build

Pros: Good board, well built. Has USB 3.0 and Sata III which aren't often found at this price. Easy to use BIOs with some goodies like access to over clock settings and 1 touch over clock.

Cons: It would have been nice if the PCI x1 was available while using a 2 slot graphics card, but if you need that just get a different board.

Other Thoughts: Used in a budget build with an x4 760k and hd 7770. The board does support these non apu chips.

Board had lots of nice little features for a budget build.

1 out of 5 eggsCaught on fire

Pros: Worked ok before it caught on fire.

Cons: Literally caught on fire and burnt a portion of the motherboard and case. MSI expects me to pay to courier it back to them for replacement despite it starting a small fire.

5 out of 5 eggsso far so good

Pros: it worked great right out of the box, barely any configuration needed if you don't want to overclock. i only had to change 1 setting so the mobo would detect that my RAM is 1600 and not 1333.

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: no hiccups yet, I just recently made a built for my parents so we will see.

4 out of 5 eggsOverclocker

Pros: Love the flexibility when combined with an unlocked APU (A8-5600k)
Well built, everything works as expected, except...

Cons: No option to control CPU voltage in the BIOS

Other Thoughts: I had hoped to down-clock and reduce power to reduce heat which would allow for quieter operation.
The manual showed CPU voltage control, but it is not there in the BIOS.
I'm taking away an egg.

1 out of 5 eggsBad board

Pros: Price, it was cheap and its SATA3/USB3

Cons: Problems started with a buggy Ubuntu install, so then I decided to try Mint, also unstable - crashes at random times, not associated with any specific activity. So then I though, well this sounds like memory: nope, 24hrs of memtest 86+ with no errors running from a CD. So then I though well maybe the OS was just buggy - after all I was using the latest supported releases of Ubuntu and Mint. So then I decided to try my technet install of Windows 7 that has worked on several machines without issue - failed install.
And now the problems started getting really weird. After a crash sometimes the hard drive wouldn't show up in BIOS, then after a restart it would be back. Then sometimes the CD drive wouldn't show up. Then I couldn't boot from my thumb drive. Tried switching SATA ports, cables, different hard drives, and DVD drives, all will randomly disappear from the BIOS after reboots.
So then I think, well its probably the motherboard. (Sad face). Better RMA it. C.RAP, its past 30 days, can't use Newegg's wonderful service. Have to contact MSI to see about a warranty. What a joke, their warranty page say I need to bring the board to an authorized MSI repair center. There are two in the USA, and I am at least 1000 miles away from both. Tried calling, phone tree all in Spanish. Use my minimal understanding of Spanish to hit #3 for motherboards. Person answers: "Hello?". Me: "Yes, hello, is this the MSI warranty center?". 'Support' person: "yes, hello?". This went on for a few minutes and I eventually determined that I think the number connected me to someone's home number and they were not in any way affiliated with MSI. In all I am not happy with this board because A: its broken and B: I can exchange it apparently.
Thanks MSI

Other Thoughts: Stick with Asus, never had an issue.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat board

Pros: It fits nice, even into a smaller case.

The BIOS is great. It has a full fledged GUI with mouse support. Very easy to setup. Tons of features with intuitive layout.

Every driver on the disc worked without a hitch on Windows 7.

Also came with lots of extra screws.

Cons: No IDE. Yes, IDE is kind of outdated, but I like the option. I have some older DVD-Burners I wanted to throw in the system but could not.

Other Thoughts: I got this for my son. With a quad core 3.2, it's a great gaming box. Plays all the latest.

MSI is my favorite mobo brand. This board did not disappoint me. Great price for this quality!

1 out of 5 eggsChose it for the price - had to RMA

Pros: - At the time of purchase, it was $54.99 with free shipping, which seemed like a great deal for a Hudson D3 motherboard.
- Physical installation was easy - all the screws fit properly, the shield snapped into place, the components fit properly. Except for the 24-pin connector, which I had to really muscle to connect right; however, that could be the fault of the PSU, and not the motherboard.

Cons: - Minus 1 egg because it does not have an LED light or a speaker. I didn't bother to make sure that this was included because I assumed that all motherboards have one or the other or both. One or both of these would have been helpful during troubleshooting
- Minus 1 egg for not working properly on initial startup. I received a "cannot find required map name" message that I traced back to an MSI motherboard related issue after a few web searches. I tried all applicable troubleshooting steps on various forums, to no avail.
- Minus 1 egg for MSI tech support not being able to help me. I described my issue and they had me try a few steps to resolve the issue, but in the end they suggested that I return the motherboard to whomever I bought it from.
- Minus 1 egg for MSI tech support being rude. I didn't appreciate being interrupted when trying to explain that I already tried some of the steps suggested, or the curt nature of the representative when I asked them to slow down and walk me through the steps they suggested I try. Finally, the representative flat out hung up on me. I even heard the click of his phone as he put his handset down.

Other Thoughts: I explained my situation to Newegg and they are accepting my request for a refund. I am returning this motherboard and purchasing an ASUS motherboard instead. Although the issue could have been an anomaly and may be resolved by additional troubleshooting or even an identical, working motherboard, my experience with MSI's technical support was a huge turn off and I don't want to give them any more money.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Little Board

Pros: Sata III, USB 3.0.
This board is a good value. Paired with an A10-5800K and Team Vulcan Gold 2x8 DDR3 2133, the computer is fast and responsive. When enabling XMP, the memory was detected correctly.

Cons: The board came with an older bios that will not update via the internet in the bios setup. I had to download the latest bios from MSI and flash it from a jump drive.

Other Thoughts: Very satisfied with this board so far. The computer is used for multimedia, casual gaming, photo and video editing.
System Specs:
MSI FM2-A75MA-P33 FM2
AMD A10-5800k
16GB Team Vulcan Gold DDR3 2133

4 out of 5 eggsGood value for USB 3.0

Pros: A good value board with USB 3.0 ports and SATA III capability.

Cons: Took me a while to figure out why the board kept BSOD upon booting using either version of Windows I had on two separate hard drives. It turns out the bios defaults to a RAID setting (JBOD) which my drives were not setup for. Changing this fixed the issue.

Other Thoughts: There's no IDE connections so make sure your DVD/CD drives are SATA !
