MSI 990FXA-GD65V2 Desktop Motherboard - AMD 990FX Chipset - Socket AM3+
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Nice BIOS menu
Control Center works really nice for Fan Controls.
Really fast
Fixed all my LAG and Blue screen issues.
Overclocking is very easy.
Only cost me $59.99 after 30 dollar MIR.
Easy Setup
6 Sata 3 connections
USB 3.0 Front and Back

Cons: none, hasn't had one issue since i bought it. Fixed all my computer's issues

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace my Gigabyte UD3 that has been acting up. (Getting warrantied atm) I immediately noticed a huge increase in speed and responsiveness. Fixed all the issues I was having.
I am running inline with:
FX 8350
Corsair 16GB 4x4GB

AMD A8-6600K Richland Quad-Core 3.9GHz Socket FM2 100W AD660KWOHLBOX Desktop Processor - Black Edition AMD Radeon HD 8570D
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It has been a very solid CPU so far. With close to 4ghz and a quad core this can handle about anything.
The built on video will handle most games at medium (No AA) which is plenty for most people.
Can either pair with a 2nd medium GPU or just get a high end GPU later on.
the price of $100.00 makes it a lot easier on a budget build

Cons: The stock CPU Cooler isn't enough. Mine was running at 52 with a medium load.

Other Thoughts: Would recommend getting a liquid cooler or a better air cooler. (I used the one that came with my FX 8350 to save on cost)
This CPU is a great option for those on a budget that want to do gaming.
You can always add a high end video card to the computer for high end gaming.

MSI A78M-E45 FM2+ / FM2 AMD A78 (Bolton D3) HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works well with 6000 series APU.
Worked well right out of the box, the UEFI bios works well.
Recognized my 1866 ram seeds right away.
3 year warranty is a nice touch for a sub $100.00 board
Didn't notice a difference between this or the 88 chipset version with what I use it for.
Temps stay cool.
Very stable

Cons: none so far.

Other Thoughts: I paired this with an AMD A8-6600K and 8 gigs of Kingston HyperX Fury. It ran right off the bat with very little tweaking needed.
