The F2A75M-D3H is laid out like other AMD microATX motherboards. Most of the connectors are at the edges of the board where they are easily accessed, though the 8-pin EPS12V connector is in the top left corner; if you have a large third party cooler and a case with a top-mounted power supply, it could be a real pain to connect.

There are two full size PCI-E slots though the bottom one runs at only 4x due to chipset limitations, six SATA 6 Gbps ports, an onboard USB 3.0 header, and three 4-pin fan headers.

None of the SATA connectors are on the side though they are far from the main 16x PCI-E so interference is unlikely. Two fan headers are at the center which is perhaps accessible than along the top edge which is the norm.

Cooling the FCH is a small, low profile heatsink attached with the usual pushpins.

By the looks of it, the board utilizes a simple 4 power phase design for voltage regulation. The VRM circuitry is bare with no direct cooling.

Being a budget board, there aren't as many options on the back panel, just the standard fare like HDMI, S/PDIF, and a pair of USB 3.0 ports.
