Pros: I have the original V8 & this GTS mounted on twin MSI 990FXA-GD80 Motherboards with the same FX 8350 CPU's & the temp difference is 10 degrees cooler using the GTS. I like that.
Cons: It's huge & for full tower case's only.

This review is from: MSI 990FXA-GD80 V2 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: I like the click Bios & the idea you can get into it in windows. High quality parts, great socket layout.
Quad SLI & Crossfire ready.
Cons: PCIE 2.0 only.. It should have been Gen 3 PCIE 3.0.
Other Thoughts: With the AMD FX 8350 & Bios 13.5 My configuration is running flawless. 8GB of Gskill Rampage Ram @ 1866Mhz, 2 Raptor HDD's in Raid 0 Array, 2 Geforce GTX 260's 448 bit MI in SLI mode, my system performance rating is 6.4. Not bad for what it is. The first time I've ever gotten above a 5.9 rating. My next step will be to get 2133 Mhz Ram & get 2 SSD's in Raid 0, or Put the OS on 1 SSD & keep the Raptors in Raid 0.
Overall, I think this is a great Mobo
