Excellent Mobo! 11/8/2017 8:25:32 PM

Pros: Everything worked great, no issues, Fast, responsive and easy to setup with no issues, I can definitely recommend this board.

Cons: None after 1 Year.

Overall Review: I have 8GB of Gskill 2133 memory 2 sticks of x4, I thought about 16GB but the tests I've seen does not show much improvement from 8 to 16 in a computer, unless your really doing extremely intense Gaming or Work, I play games but nothing new and or extreme, so the onboard vid card works great for all my needs, with the Vid card update, it Casts easily to my LG Web Tv, it found it and casts with no issues, no problem with the sound, it's very good, the Network Card seems to be of excellent quality, as my Connection is suppose to be 4mb of speed, I get consistent 4.7 with this card, and i have other systems on my network, does a great job Multitasking, I do a ton of things at once all the time and it runs great, I have an AMD 7400 CPU in it, I wanted a 7600 but didnt have the extra cash at the time, but still may spring for it and sell this chip. but overall this system has given me an excellent build, extremely fast and so far no issues, you must definitely get at least a 480GB SSD drive for the OS, I use that and a 1TB Drive inside and a 2 TB min backup hooked up via USB 3.0 i use my monitor using the HDMI connection and it works great, if you can find this one, buy it and pair it with the AMD 7600 for even faster speed than I'm getting.

Very Good Board 9/7/2016 4:56:54 PM

Pros: - Modern Chipset
- Solid military class capacitors and chokes
- Good futures
- Reliable

Cons: - Installed UEFI BIOS version 6.1 does not support newest Carrizo processors (AMD Athlon X4 845). You need to have some older FM2/2+ processor to upgrade BIOS to version 6.5.
- Bios upgrade process is kinda buggy (MSI problem, not motherboard). Require several steps because MSI provide only windows/DOS exe file. Not complicated if you have some experience but took longer than needed.
- Graphic card in PCI Express x16 will block other PCI port.
- Only two heads for case fans

Overall Review: I like this motherboard a lot. Paired with AMD Athlon X4 845 exceed my needs for home server. Solid capacitors is a big plus! Last board lasted 6 years in server. This one should go beyond this point. 5 eggs for performance despite need for BIOS upgrade and lack of third head for case fan.

Easiest install I can remember 7/19/2016 7:03:55 PM

Pros: Pros - nothing wrong with it. Well laid out board. Didn't come with the M connector doohickey, so I had to spend 90 seconds hooking up the front panel. Darn.

Cons: Cons - board's fine, AMD needs to come out with some new products, though, jeez.

Overall Review: Want a small gaming or workstation board? Here you have it.

Excellent for budget builds 5/20/2016 5:02:13 PM

Pros: The main advantage is not needing a video card since it has HDMI native on the board
Micro atx fits a smaller case
Uses current 1866 ram without overclocking
Choice of a range of A Series AMD chips depending on build cost
Will boot and run non UEFI operating systems

Cons: None that I have found

Overall Review: I hooked up one of these M78 boards via HDMI to a 50 inch TV and it streamed a movie from the DVD drive flawlessly.
My wife's kitchen is a M78 board, A-4 with 8 gig of AMD Entertainer ram. It zips along running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

Cheap board with several flaws 5/10/2016 7:17:36 AM

Pros: On the cheaper end for FM2+ boards

Cons: Many issues with this board -

- BIOS does not correctly display on my TV over HDMI, either with a standard HDMI cable or DVI to HDMI. Had to use a DVI cable hooked up to a monitor to make BIOS changes.

- Board refuses to wake from sleep unless physical power button is pushed, despite tweaking and changing BIOS and OS settings. Using the board in an HTPC, this is a deal breaker.

- SATA ports location in relation to PCI-e means that longer cards cover three of the six ports, making it very challenging to use them.

Overall Review: RMA'd the board after a week and went back to Gigabyte, too many werid quirks to try and work with.

It works. 5/8/2016 8:31:58 AM

Pros: Easy to set up.

Cons: The boot screen is ugly.

Overall Review: Really I have no idea what I'm doing but I managed to put this motherboard in a case and add all the necessary stuff and plug everything in and it works. Set it up for my 3 and 4 year old kids with a clean install of win10. Now hopefully they will leave my laptop and ps4 alone.

I'd say it was easy enough for a novice person like me. If you know how to read and follow instructions or use google then it should be easy for you too.
