    Very nice looking board. Doesn't look or feel cheap. BIOS is weak because there is no way to dedicate more memory to the APU. Default is 1GB. I have it updated to the latest version and have searched the internets above and beyond to no avail. Grammar in the BIOS and MSI apps is terrible as it was translated from another language without effort. Front panel connectors had to be connected individually in a very cramped area of the board. Board could have come with an additional PWM header. Also, if possible, they should have placed the CPU socket further away from the PCI-E slot. My GPU card gets hot and this ramps up the cooler on my CPU. Solved this issue by installing a liquid cooler.

    from completed build Sophia

    Pros: so many options in one place, fairly smart layout (isolated sound chip), good price to features ratio.

    Cons: on-board wifi cables pass directly by CPU, possibility of mild noise contamination of signal, but I was getting 80 mb/s withOUT the antennae connected, so probably not much to worry about. Would like SATA headers at lower right, in a perfect world.

    Quick take: A very, very solid board for anyone who's only using 2 sticks of memory.

    Obv choice for ITX builds that need built in wifi. so far all is well and the wifi is very fast.
