May 31, 2013 Update: Still running strong, changed it from a 4 star review to a 5 star just because of how trouble free it has been. Bluetooth is still working great. Only slightly irritating thing again is the voltage control, but I'm still able to run a slight (304 FSB) overclock which makes up for this downside. (305 FSB with turbo turned off hit some errors during stress test, 304 looks good as long as I have RAM at 1.65V)

Original Review:

This motherboard is quite stable with my current setup.

Windows 7
A10-5700
Scythe Kozuti
2 x Noctua 80mm Case Fans
MSI FM2-A75IA-E53 Mini ITX Motherboard
G.SKILL Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1866 MHz 9 CAS
Realan E-I7 + 150W external PSU
Intel 330, 180gb SSD

Due to this board being so new there are going to be bios updates, keep an eye out on the MSI website for something.

Wireless: Atheros AR9271, getting ~2-3MB/s (16-24Mb/s, multiply by 8 for Bits >> bytes) with my wireless setup (Netgear N900). They also give you an optional antennae extender that has little magnets on it you can stick to things.

Bluetooth: Hooked up to my Wiimotes no problem with Dolphin, took a few days before the connection felt solid. I have my computer sitting on top of my entertainment center so there isn't much interference.

BIOS Software: There is some click BIOS software you can use in your operating system, after changing your settings just click save then reboot and you're good to go.

IGP Ram: Useful option in BIOS, you have to first set your Integrated Graphics Devices to "Dual Graphics", this then opens the option to change your shared memory.

I purchased this nearly one month ago for a mini-itx htpc build. My system components are:

A6-5400k cpu
8gb Samsung Low Profile DDR3-1600 RAM
Noctua NH-L9a Heatsink
Realan E-i7 case
Three 80x25 case fans
DVD drive

SO far so good. System does exactly what I'd hoped. Perfect for hd viewing, tv over hdhomerun prime, etc. My only complaints are (i) Live Update (their drive/bios updater) does not work properly, had to install all drivers/updates manually -- they say there are working on a new release and (ii) wish there was a second pwm slot for case fans (just to be clear, there is one pwm slot for case fans -- i wish there were two).

I just purchased this board and the AMD A10-6800k processor. I expected to have to update the BIOS however in order to do that you have to have a Trinity based apu installed. Given that this is a new build and I don't have an extra apu sitting around I had to order a $50 chip in order to use the new A10. I'll update when I am able to install the new apu.

This motherboard is absolutely amazing. The board has built in WiFi (Non-Windows users will be happy to hear it is an Atheros chipset), bluetooth, lan, and the APU has decent video. If you want to create a great small gaming box you have the ability to add a PCIEx GPU. I personally used this board in order to make a NAS (built on FreeNAS). With A8-5500 AMD APU the system has run like an absolute dream.

I will be buying another one of these boards and an A10 to make a small (but very powerful) desktop. You will not find better hardware for the price. While Intel based systems do have slightly better performance vs the AMD systems; AMD still wins the performance vs. price war and MSI has made an absolutely wonderful board to accommodate the AMD line of APUs.

Seriously worth it.

After reading a zillion (ok, not that many), it seemed that no one had a clear "best motherboard brand" or a valid explanation why. So, I decided to opt for MSI. To be completely honest, there aren't many Mini-ITX Mobos out there to choose from, so my options were definitely limited. I knew I wanted AMD APU support and USB 3.0 support. This was one of the even fewer mobo's that checked both of those boxes.

Then, add in the fact that it has built-n WIFI & Bluetooth card, which normally may run about $30, and this board really stood out to me.

A few months after my build, I'm still pretty happy with it with a few exceptions. Some of my gripes are:
1) Richland APU support didn't come around until Bios V2.0 (I believe 2.0, but may have been 2.2). In order to update the Bios, you need a last-generation Trinity APU. Seems silly and pointless. You'd think that MSI could have found a better way of doing that, knowing that most of us don't have random APU's laying around.
2) The Bios doesn't display properly using HDMI. All you're able to see is the upper left corner of the MSI logo and a few selections in their left column. You simply don't have enough viewable surface to make any changes in the Bios. Contacted MSI, and they confirmed that this was a bug present in Bios V2.0 and up. I suppose it's a non-issue for people who use the VGA output, but they have to know that a huge percentage of the people that buy Mini-ITX boards are using them at media PCs connected via HDMI. Duuuuumb.
3) Price. I've literally seen dozens of motherboards with the same exact specs, and sometimes better specs, for half the cost. I'm guessing this is due to the unique size of this MOBO, and that all Mini-ITX boards are like that, but double the price just seems excessive.
