MSI A78M-E35 FM2+ / FM2 AMD A78 (Bolton D3) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Inexpensive, easy for mild overclocks, plenty of features for budget build, decent layout

Cons: No option for adjusting CPU voltage will hold back more aggressive OC'ing. Sound drivers on disc didn't work, had to download, and haven't gotten audio pinouts for front jack to work yet. A second legacy PCI slot would be nice for TV cards and such.

Other Thoughts: Would like more flexibility in overclocking settings, but for an under sixty board I can't complain too much. BIOS GUI is kinda nice but getting to DRAM timings is a little too hard. Documentation is so-so but a big improvement compared to MSI boards of years ago. Stability seems to be OK. Haven't tested Tech support yet. MSI support used to be Chinese abysmal but is probably better these days.
Would buy again for a budget build.
