The front of the MSI A75MA-G55 APU motherboard retail packaging is rather nondescript. So much so that it leaves out the detail that it is designed for AMD's new APU's. The only give away is in the name, the A75 of the A75MA-G55 depicts the chipset. Despite that minor detail there is a solid amount of information, including the Military Class II components and Super Speed USB 3.0 and SATA III 6Gbps.
The back of the A75MA-G55 packaging goes into greater detail about the Hi-c Capacitors, Super Ferite Chokes and the solid caps, all of which are part of the Military Class II components.
Once we open up the retail packaging for the MSI A75MA-G55 the bundle is a bit of a mess, though the A75MA-G55 is well protected beneath a layer of cardboard. Included in the bundle accompanying the MSI A75MA-G55 is a pair of SATA cables, rear I/O shield, 4pin Molex to SATA power cable, Super Speed USB 3.0 expansion bracket, manuals, driver disc and quick connectors for the front panel connections.
Once we remove the protective layer of cardboard, we can catch a glimpse of the MSI A75MA-G55, though our view is obscured by the anti-static bag that protects the motherboard from ESD.
