MSI A88X-G43 FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: I just purchased this MB, so this review is in response to Sara's issue with the pcie3 and pcie4 slots. Per MSI's website - ** Only PCI_E3 is available, if PCI_E3 and PCI_E4 had been installed. This is on the detailed product specs for their top of the line A88X-G45 Gaming. With this in mind the A88X-G43 will have the same issue.

Cons: Other than the fact that I can't get it instantaneously, I will update when I receive the MB.

Pros: I have not purchased these so this review is a response to Daniel L.'s review of this RAM. If you are going to try to use this with an AMD Trinity A Series processor you need to take into consideration that the memory controller embedded in the processor can only handle 1866 RAM.

Cons: You will be able to reach 2133 with an OC of the APU, as a word of caution in doing this you WILL NEED a better cooling solution than the stock HSF. I recommend slapping a water cooler in place of air if planning on doing any OC with this APU as it runs hot to begin with.
