MSI NF980-G65 AM3 NVIDIA nForce 980a SLI HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Not for the faint of heart 01/28/2011

This review is from: MSI NF980-G65 AM3 NVIDIA nForce 980a SLI HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: It's pretty

Cons: It HATES stock memory timings. DDR3 1600 is automatically underclocked to 1333. Bios update is risky. My board is a brick now due to the latest update. IF you can get it to run at all it does hybrid sli but be prepared for random freezes and bluescreens. I have tried everything except outright replacement to no avail. MSI could you please put out an sli enabled board without making it a minefield please?

Other Thoughts: If your looking for a simple "plug and play" board look elsewhere. This board is the worst I've ever tried to use. I've never had this many problems on a board that is supposed to be of the quality they claim this to be.

Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 ST3500418AS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I bought it for a budget build and it worked great. No problems.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I don't usually buy Seagate drives but I took a chance on this one and it has yet to fail. I wish my luck was as good with previous seagate drives.

Mushkin Enhanced Silverline 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model 996527
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Installed without a hitch. I have yet to get a bad stick from Mushkin and I have used it in many different builds with the same results. Other manufacturers have had occasional problems but not Mushkin.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I am a loyal Mushkin user and as long as they continue making excellent products with excellent support I will continue to use them.
