A full featured board for your Trinity APU.
The ATX sized MSI FM2-A85XA-G65 comes with a dark blue and black theme that’s been predominant on previous motherboards with Military Class III components. The CPU in particular is very impressive thanks to large and rather slick looking heatsinks. The plates spreading out in multiple layers with individual fins extending out ensures great heat dissipation across the VRMs, keeping the voltage supply to the APU cool.
Moving down we see two PCIe Gen 2.0 x16 slots, along with three and two more PCIe and PCI slots respectively, for further expansions.
Move to the right and you’ll see the A85X chipset covered in the same type of heatsink as the CPU area, with the eight SATA III ports on the far right.
Come back top and we’ll see the rear I/O panel which has 4x USB 2.0 and 2x USB 3.0 ports. Visual connection is provided by HDMI, DisplayPort, VGA and DVI ports. The PS/2 port, LAN, Optical Out and 6-channel audio ports complete the package.
