1 out of 5 eggsAvoid

Pros: None

Cons: The board I received had 3 issues. 1 Random reboots, USB 3 header didn't work, and the BIOS showed the APU temperature at 128C at all times, even when doing a completely cold boot.

Flashed the BIOS which had no effect!

Other Thoughts: Sadly, I was in a hurry and didn't read all of the negative reviews. Shame on me.

1 out of 5 eggsthis garbage keeps rebooting without warning

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Lets see...
Random restarts constantly without warnings, sometimes just loses display and freezes computer, I tried my psu with another mb and same with my graphics card they worked perfect for hours and hours without any problems. However once I use them with this mb, my computer continues to do random restarts and it annoys the hell out of me. I pretty much consider this mb to be dead, im def buying a far better one.

2 out of 5 eggsExtremely problematic

Pros: Is a motherboard

Cons: - 1 Case Fan Connector

- Extremely tiny. If you insert a GPU and a heat sink, you will BARELY have any room. I had to nearly break my finger against my GPU to install the ram.

-WHO PUTS THE CMOS BATTERY UNDER THE GPU?SERIOUSLY

Other Thoughts: You can get a MUCH better board at this price.

3 out of 5 eggsRead Carefully

Pros: 6 x SATA 3 6Gbs, USB 3.0, PCI-E x16 3.0, decent layout.

Cons: can not get the voltage to regulate for nothing, it jumps more than my 9 year old boys. I got this in a bundle for a HTPC. It came with AMD A8 5600k Trinity. This motherboard hates that APU. They say it supports it. But MSI says it does not.

Other Thoughts: Be careful before you purchase anything. Read, Read, and Read about the product you intend to buy. Good Luck

5 out of 5 eggsi like "MSI"

Pros: this board handles "A10 7850K" processor with no problem... i put this processor in a different brand named board that continuously ran very high temps... the "MSI" board runs the same processor 20 degrees cooler... that's with stardard cooling... so... for you guys that are running around buying water coolers and such...
"before you buy... give "MSI" a try"...

Cons: none...

Other Thoughts: i have had only one "MSI" board that failed... (1 out of 8)... and that was purely my fault... and i'll just this about that... be very careful when fooling around with bios update... and that holds true w/most motherboards...

4 out of 5 eggsGreat HTPC or home server board

Pros: Great little board for an inexpensive HTPC, light duty machine, or server build. Has all the display ports and USB 2.0/3.0 options one should need. Stable.

Cons: None really. It suited my needs for two separate builds.
