The MSI 890FXA-GD65 packaging has the same theme that you’ll find on your boot screen; an orange fiery slanted G interlacing with a white background. The front of the packaging goes over some of the features which include a 3 year warranty, Military Class components, Auto OC Genie, and uses the AMD 890FX Chipset. The back of the box goes into a better explanation of the features and also includes the specifications and the I/O overview so you can see exactly what connections are on the motherboard.
Inside of the box you’ll find a plain cardboard separator between the parts and the motherboard. Some parts that are included are the I/O plate, User Guide, Software CD, four white SATA cables, Molex to SATA power adapters, USB expansion panel and some other handy adapters for the motherboard.
