MSI MSI Gaming 990FXA-GAMING AM3+/ AM3 AMD 990FX & SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Great Mobo.

Cons: Important info left out of Book.

Other Thoughts: The book has instructions for how to install 1 GPU in Slot PCIE-2, & does not have any info about where to install another GPU to get SLI to work & settings to appear in Nvidia or Geforce driver Software. I had to call MSI to find out "install the 2nd GPU in Slot PCIE-5 to get X16 + X16 & for the settings to appear in the Software. The check boxes you should see to Enable or Disable SLI & other Modes did not appear for me when I installed the 2nd GPU in Slot PCIE-4, not knowing it would not work.
For 2 GPU's it's slot PCIE-2 & 5 to get SLI to work & get settings to appear in the Software, otherwise the settings will not appear.

MSI 990FXA-GD80 V2 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I have a review here already & I love the features on this Mobo.
I just wanted to add that I'd love to see a new Mobo just like this one, with the same features for AMD+ FX CPU compliant for use with DDR 4 :)

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I'm waiting for MSI to have a new Mobo with the same features as this one for AMD FX CPU's & DDR 4 compliance.

5 out of 5 eggs Great Motherboard for me. 05/01/2015

This review is from: MSI 990FXA-GD80 V2 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Used an FX 8350 CPU with my build Air cooled with a Cooler Master V8 v2 Heatsink. Gskill Rampage Ram @ 1866 Mhz.
2 GTX 970 GPU's in SLI mode. 2 1TB Raptor HD's in Raid 0 Array.
Ultra 1200 W PSU

Cons: The only Con I've read about is this Mobo does not have many OC options. I never OC anything, so it don't matter to me.
My config runs great

Other Thoughts: I don't understand why this Mobo seems hidden from mainstream advertising. Perhaps because it don't have enough or hardly any OC options,, But it does have OC Genie. I never enabled it.
My system really runs great without any overclocking done & my System rating is 6.4
