All Solid Capacitors

Capacitors are the most important component for electronic product's power supply. The quality of the capacitors can impact the stability of the entire system and risk of product failure. Currently there are two types of capacitors, electrolytic capacitors and solid capacitors. Compared to electrolytic capacitors, solid capacitors have a longer lifespan and provide a more stable power under high temperatures. More importantly, solid capacitors do not have any liquid materials inside, and thus will not suffer a leak which would infringe upon the product's stability. With such benefits is it no wonder that solid capacitors are very important for product quality's improvement.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat FM2 Board

Pros: - Built with quality
- Very appealing design
- 4 memory slots
- USB 3.0
- O.C. Button and CMOS reset on the board

Cons: - Initial BIOS boot is a bit long, but not too long. (very minor con)

Other Thoughts: I've had this board for roughly 9 months now and it hasn't let me down at all. It has everything I personally look for in a motherboard. I apologize for not going more in-depth with this review, but all I can say is it is worth the buy for your FM2 setup. This board will bring me back to MSI for my future motherboard purchases.

5 out of 5 eggsRock Solid Platform

Pros: Used this mobo in combination with an AMD A10-6800K processor and AMD Performance 1866mhz DDR3 RAM. Was amazed with the performance out of the box without using a discreet graphics card or AMD's Dual Graphics capabilities. Of course, I won't be doing any major gaming with this setup but still I was amazed by it's capabilities, even before enabling any overclocking. The sound quality from the onboard Realtek THX was impressive. The BIOS preloaded on this board when I received it was compatible with the new A10-6800k processor.

Cons: None really.

Other Thoughts: I have used MSI products for the last 10 or so PC's I have built and I have not ran into any problems. Their build quality is top notch! I guess I am either extremely lucky or just successful by using proper techniques and extreme care when building a machine. There are too many videos out there on the web that demonstrate bad build techniques such as mounting the RAM, CPU, and Cooling solution before even mounting the MB into the case or not demonstrating using proper grounding techniques. Not saying that there is a 0 chance of receiving a DOA item from any manufacturer but following correct building practices will help minimize your risk of encountering problems during your build.

5 out of 5 eggsMisinformed due to review here

Pros: It's a great quality motherboard and it quite a looker too. The bios are very friendly and easy to use and it was very easy to install everything. Was done in under 5 minutes.

Cons: If you're looking to upgrade to an APU there really are no cons. This is an amazing board.

Other Thoughts: Might say that the purchase isn't verified, but that's because I received it as a gift from my wife on her account. I wanted to upgrade my system as I haven't upgraded in years and I didn't do much research this time around and I made some big mistakes. Went from a Q9550 to an A8 6600K which wasn't really an improvement and I went with this board because one of the reviewers indicated that it supported SLI. It Does not support SLI!!! Do not make the mistake I did! No where does the product even indicate supporting SLI. I'm very disappointed, but not in the product just my lack of research into the parts I was getting.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Motherboard

Pros: Used this board in a build last tax season, and I am extremely happy with the purchase. Everything about setting it up was easy EXCEPT for updating drivers for windows 8. But this was a windows 8 problem, not the board's fault.

Very simple overclocking (manually at least, i'm not a fan of one touch overclocking via oc genie or similar concepts) Got my A10-5800k up to 4.2ghz right out of the box, easy setup of my 2133mhz G.Skill ram, and dual graphics was as easy as a click of the mouse.

Cons: None that i've found yet.

Other Thoughts: I was originally running the a10-5800k apu with a 6670 discreet card for dual graphics, and it worked well enough. Since then I have gone the way of a more powerful single discreet card, but if you're on a budget this will definitely get you by for gaming, as long as you understand you can't max your settings.

Other Thoughts: MSI has earned a check in my go to book for my next motherboard purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsUpdate to previous review.

Pros: SATA 6.0 GB/s, USB 3.0 & front panel header, ample fan headers, excellent onboard cooling, lots of USB & audio connectors. This board has everything most users will ever need.

Cons: Upgrade to Richmond CPU somewhat of a hassle. Downloaded Live Update 5 and used it to install new BIOS hoping to ensure compatibility. The program updated to the "latest" BIOS of 1.7.

When I installed the new Richmond CPU, the computer gave the message that the BIOS was incompatible. Turns out that 2.4 is the most current BIOS, and 2.x is required to run Richmond or do a BIOS flash. Had to switch back to Trinity, download 2.4, install to flash drive, and run it before the Richmond would work.

The upgrade was completed but at the expense of time in internet research and extra component swapping. And I like to keep handling of components to a minimum as it has its own inherent dangers such as wearing out contacts, ESD, bending pins etc...

Hopefully the board now comes with the latest BIOS, and if it doesn't, then hopefully this review simplifies the process for the reader. If it only has BIOS 1.x, you'll need a Trinity or Llano chip to accomplish the BIOS update, so you will either need to RMA the board and get something different or purchase a cheap CPU.

Other Thoughts: Despite this upgrade hassle, the system is running great and I couldn't be more satisfied with the hardware.
