MSI X99S SLI Plus LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Inexpensive and good write up. Initially powered on in quad mode RAM using Gskill RipJaws.

Cons: After a week of running the board wouldn't POST. Found that DIMM slot 3 was bad. All my RAM booted fine except when this slot was populated. I'll be sending it back on RMA since it is past the 30 day window for Newegg return. I see now the same board is $50 more so I went with an Asus X99-A. When this comes back from RMA it will be a spare.

MSI X99S SLI Plus LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Great price and review... I was so happy to get this up and running With Gskill RAM and a Xeon 1.6 GHz processor LGA 2011-v3. Said military grade components...

Cons: One week after running I powered on the system and it wouldn't pass POST. No text on the video. A blue LED on the motherboard labeled ABIOS1 was solid on. No speaker beep so it is failing somewhere for the power on self test. The fans and lights on the board and video card all come up. Without text on the monitor or a PCIe POST card I can't see where in the process it is failing. CPU, then RAM, then Video, then peripherals. A successful POST usually lets out 1 beep on the speaker. Going to have to calm tech support

Other Thoughts: I hope MSI will back this product... it has been my first build since 2011 and the Crosshair V board

OCZ Vector 150 Series VTR150-25SAT3-120G 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Installation simple, very fast.

Cons: Comes with activation key for Acronis True Image 2013. The 2013 version is no longer available and key does not work with the current True Image version. I have a registered copy of Acronis 2013 from 2 years ago for another machine I downloaded from my registered products list and this key won't work on that copy either. I took one egg off for this.

Other Thoughts: Please... don't offer free software if you cannot fulfill the obligation. Typing in a 50 character product key in multiple times just to find the activation fails is no fun... just trying to save the next user coming behind me of the trouble.
