I found this http://www.msi.com/product/mb/FM2-A75IA-E53.html but its only on the global site not the
US site. There's also the ASRocks board but it only has 2.5ish stars, not what I would use my money on. SFF seems like it would be the best place for the APUs but no one is making the boards.

ITX boards are traditionally a market dominated by Intel.

They're more power efficient?

A10 5700 65w, same as a SB i3 and almost as good as the IB I3 with better integrated graphics.

Intel has:
*Larger marketshare (this alone is the primary reason as ITX remains a niche market)
*Better performance per watt on the CPU side
*"Good enough" GPU performance for GPU accelerating HD videos and light gaming
*Lower TDP (55W vs 65W)
*Often overrated their TDPs compared to AMD (Intel 55W < AMD 55W)

I'm sorry, but historically there has been a short supply of AMD ITX boards.
