One of the best boards I’ve seen so far, it’s on a M-ATX (small) form factor and comes with a host of great features.
Comes with MSI’s signature heatsink.
Supports CrossfireX configuration with dual PCI-E x16 slots.
I love how they placed they 2nd PCI-E slot further away from the edge, leaving room for you to use the other IO connectors. On some boards, the 2nd card would be so low that you can’t use those additional features, like say front-access USB and front-access audio connectors.
I love the SATA slot placements as well. 4 forwarding, and 2 upward facing. All 6 are SATA3.
4 DIMM slots, ample room for expansion.
Love the back panel IO as well, 3 types of video output with 6 USB slots in which 2 of them are USB 3.0
If that’s not enough, the board comes with additional USB 3.0 expansion.

The board has been stable and have not given any headaches. As you can see, it’s feature rich for a board that retails at RM 350. Nothing to post about performance as the board just provides video output while the GPU is on the processor itself, refer to the AMD A8-3850 review.
It’s a great board to start with if you’re going on the FM1 direction.
