5 out of 5 eggs Good board for SLI'ing 12/15/2011

This review is from: MSI 990FXA-GD80 AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros:

There is enough slots for a couple extra cards even though those two GeForce 580s I have in there take up two slots. Have HDTV board in the PCIE x1 above the video, and a SCSI controller in the PCI slot. The video boards each take up two slots, so you so loose a couple of slots.

Cons:

I dual boot in OpenSuse 12.1 64 bit and Windows 7. The built in Realtek LAN works great in Windows 7, but I can't turn it on in OpenSuse 12.1 because it uses the new 3.1 kernel. To counter that, I had to put a LAN card in the PCIE x16 slot just below the top video Geforce 580 to get on the internet in Linux 12.1.

Other Thoughts:

I suppose either a Linux developer or Realtek will come up with a driver that will turn on the built in LAN in Linux that uses the 3.1 kernel and above. The old 2.4 and 2.6 kernels are going to be a thing of the past.
