  • newegg Military Class The perfect trinity of quality, stability and efficiency all exist at one mainboard to meet end user expectations. The MSI Military Class series products provide the long lifespan, unparalleled quality, extreme performance and ultimate efficiency. Insisting on the best stability, MSI utilizes Hi-c CAPs on Military Class series. Made of the rare element Tantalum, often used on space shuttles and satellites, which sustains very high temperatures and shows an amazingly high electrical conductivity. Compared to the traditional ferrite choke, the Icy Choke provides higher power efficiency and a more stable power supply, which also fulfills power users need for idealized environment with turbo speed and low operating temperatures. For providing the highest quality products, Solid CAPs are built in the entire Military Class series. This not only makes bursting capacitors a non-issue but also ensures a dramatically extended lifetime and ultra-low ESR.
  • newegg OC Genie II – Overclock & Unlock CPU Core in 1 Second OC Genie II, the most powerful and easy overclocking technology is implemented on MSI's AMD 9-Series mainboards.

  • newegg USB 3.0 & SATA III Compared to the 480Mbps provided by traditional USB 2.0, the all-new USB 3.0's 5Gb/s offers 10 times the transfer bandwidth, so transferring a Blu-ray movie takes less than one minute. SATA 6Gb/s provides double the bandwidth of traditional SATA 3Gb/s, and increases the data transfer rate between your mainboard and internal storage devices, such as 7200RPM HDDs, 10000RPM HDDs and SSDs. It’s also the current trend for upcoming high-speed internal storage devices to break the existing bottleneck of a PC’s performance.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat motherboard

Pros: amazing motherboard i haven't found a better one yet. this the mobo in my main pc and the one I'm building now all the others I've tried (7 of them) haven't compared to the ease of this one.

Cons: the only thing i have to say about this is the fact there is no usb 3.0 headers, but it still has some in the back so it doesn't bother me so much.

Other Thoughts: like i said I'm about to buy another on of these, well worth the $100

4 out of 5 eggsSolid Board

Pros: Well built little board. Installed quickly and booted right up with no problems. Ample system fan connectors and back USB ports. Runs solidly with no heat issues and no errors. Surprisingly decent on-board audio was a pleasant surprise.

Cons: The BIOS was severely outdated. By over a year. Expect to be updating the BIOS first thing. Lack of an internal USB 3.0 was annoying, but not unexpected. The BIOS setup screen is awful. In my opinion the new graphical layout takes away functionality while adding nothing useful.

Other Thoughts: Overall I'm extremely happy with the board. It works well and has no issues. It supported all my hardware with no problems.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Motherboard

Pros: I have been an MSI customer for the longest time. This one never disappoints. Its a bang for the buck.

Cons: It could use a USB 3 connector for the board but I'm not complaining since it has built in at the back panel

4 out of 5 eggsWorks okay

Pros: Put it in and fired it up. Took care of some I/O errors that were plaguing the old Gigabyte board in this non-geek user machine.

Cons: No real cons so far.

Other Thoughts: I do not like the BIOS interface. It's not like it has the first mouseable BIOS around, and there are so many things you can't do and tweak any more. I suppose everyone is following Microsoft, Norton etcetera in the don't-let-the-customer-have-access-to-everything-in-the-product-they-bought philosophy.

1 out of 5 eggsConstant overheating issues

Pros: Technically functions as a motherboard

Cons: Constantly overheats when playing games or watching videos even with case open and a fan pointed on it

2 out of 5 eggsNot impressed, returned for refund

Pros: Good price point, 990FX chipset, 'Pretty BIOS' look. Good OC controls.

That's all I can really say about this board that's good

Cons: Died after 3 weeks w/ only *At most* 30 hours of actual use. The M-Flash is a joke, DON'T TRY TO FLASH BIOS EVER AGAIN!!!
Horrible support from MSI.
Also like others have stated, it has a very poor board design.
There are MOSFET heatsink issues, the SB is in the way, VERY odd PCI slot placement and stability issues.

Other Thoughts: I upgraded from an 880FX and I am glad I still have it, I much prefer it to this dud

I will be using my refund to purchase a GB UD3 and save a couple bucks.
*Newegg support is AMAZING!* Love u guys!

5 out of 5 eggsGR8 Motherboard, but ...

Pros: Love the motherboard and the multiple expansion slot it has. Works 24/7 as my media server running Windows 7 Pro.

Rosewill Blackhawk - Original Case
Raidmax 730w Power Supply - Modular

AMD FX 8320E 3.2GHz 8-Core / Corsair H60 H20 Cooler
AMD MSI 990FXA-GD65V2 Motherboard

32GB 4x8GB Crucial 1600MHz Memory

25TB 5x5TB WD WD50EZRX Green Drives (GPT Format)

512GB Apotop SSD - OS/Programs

LG 16x Bluray Burner

EVGA GeForce 730 2GB PCIe Video Card

Cons: Not really a con ... but who puts a chipset or south bridge in the way of a PCIe x1 slot just below the on-board sound ?

I would have put my RAID card there but it wouldn't fit. No worries I put my Wireless AC card there instead.

Other Thoughts: I would definitely buy it again to build another system.

3 out of 5 eggsDoes well for a mid range.

Pros: Solid build,

Cons: It can't handle the ram speeds as advertised. I only have one HyperX Fury Black Series 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 and had to reduce the speed down. Not sure if I even want to add more ram to the board as I'm not getting my money's worth.

Other Thoughts: Would not recommend for gaming, or video editing.
