Looks like M-DTX form factor. If you use a dual-slot card with the alternate layout, you require a case with three slots. For anything more than a basic word processing or web browsing system, I would highly recommend a graphics card to be used. Awesome power in a small space with the right CPU , and a good price. Also optional is HDMI onboard. The board is brown, instead of black, but overall it feels like a solid board. A little disappointing but it is to be expected on a board of this price bracket.

The design has space for two expansion slots. Of course the major feature here is the CPU socket.
Also optional is HDMI onboard. Looks like M-DTX form factor. When using a dual-slot graphics card, the layout of the AM-MV means that you lose the use of the x1 slot. The smallest boards we usually see FX processors on is M-ATX, which is small, but not as small a960m-,v some of us would like. This takes my W processor down to 95w.

Please refer to the latest Memory support list for details. Many M-DTX boards feature the same expansion slot selection, but with the locations reversed. As you can see, the board features four SATA ports.
As you can see from the bottom of the board, the PCB is more of a brown than a black. If you were to run a single-slot graphics card, either layout is usable.
I would advise undervolting your CPU if you wish to use this board. In reality though, this port is connected to the onboard AMD G chipset, so you are stuck with the rather old Radeon graphics chipset.
While M-DTX is supposed to measure mm wide by mm long, this board is mm wide by mm long. M-DTX is believed by some to be the ideal small form factor board.
The board supports up to w processors, including the venerable FX Build quality is appropriate for this price bracket — outside of the CPU power delivery, all capacitors are of the non-solid variety. However, the power delivery for the CPU socket does not have a heatsink attached, which is an oversight.

Depending on your use case, this could be a positive or a negative. The board is brown, instead of black, but overall it feels like a solid board.
While this may be a budget board, it does offer quite a few things to the Aa960m-mv enthusiast. As you may also notice, the CPU cooler bracket does not come with a backplate — which does restrict the use of heavier coolers that use the stock AMD clip system. If you use a dual-slot card with the alternate layout, you require a case with three slots.
