The MSI FM2-A85XA-GD65 only brings the basic features provided by the A85X chipset. These features, however, are more than enough for the average user, with eight SATA-600 ports, four USB 3.0 ports, and two PCI Express 2.0 x16 slots. The highlight of this motherboard is the military-grade components on the voltage regulator circuit, which set it apart from most of its competitors.
Overclocking wasn’t overlooked, and as of this writing, this motherboard holds the world record for overclocking: 7.38 GHz with an A10-5800K processor.
This motherboard is more than enough for the average user, but if you need more features and/or a better audio codec, you will need to look for a competing product or wait until MSI comes out with a high-end model for the FM2 platform.
