All Solid Capacitors
Capacitors are the most important component for electronic product's power supply. The quality of the capacitors can impact the stability of the entire system and risk of product failure. Currently there are two types of capacitors, electrolytic capacitors and solid capacitors. Compared to electrolytic capacitors, solid capacitors have a longer lifespan, and provide a more stable power under high temperatures. More importantly, solid capacitors do not have any liquid materials inside, and thus will not suffer a leak which would infringe upon the product’s stability. With such benefits is it no wonder that solid capacitors are very important for product quality's improvement.

Some very nice features for a budget board, used with the A10 5800k and no issues, everything works as it should. The BIOS UEFI works perfectly although you can't do as much manual tweaking in some areas, but that's to be expected on a budget board I suppose. Still, all in all a solid product and priced right.
Honestly I'm surprised I haven't had a single major issue with this board. The plentiful SATA3 ports along with a USB3 header is nice on such a budget board, as are the many video output options. I've heard tale of the UEFI refusing to accept changes or crashing, but I've seen nothing of the sort.
Had some bios issues out of the box. After making changes to the settings in the uefi "bios", the system would freeze and not allow any changes to be saved. Basically I had to hit the computer's reset button thereby discarding any changes. After a couple of attempts, I decided to reset the bios and everything worked after that.
My previous build used an Asrock FM2A75M-DGS motherboard which was almost an inch shorter than the MSI motherboard. One feature from the Asrock board that I missed was the "goodnight LED" which allows you to turn off the power LED a few seconds upon turning the system on. Naturally, you could just either unplug the LED from the mobo or cover the LED itself with dark tape but either solution is less elegant than a motherboard controlled feature.
