This review is from: MSI 990FXA-GD80 V2 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Works perfectly now with my FX 8350 OC 4.4GHz (OC Genie)
Cons: Had to RMA the first one, Rebate is only 15 days to submit.
Other Thoughts: MSI, offering a rebate is nice however 15 days to complete it and send it, really? How about 30 days like everyone else next time?
When you have to test and RMA the board, the turn over is more than 15 days, hence I didn't even bothered to send my rebates after 18 days to see it rejected. Really shady practice on your part, shame on you!
So even with the $10 rebate loss, I keep the board as it seems to play well with my other components and seems to perform as it should however my next upgrade will probably go to another brand who offers at least 30 days for rebate.
Pros: My first CPU was DOA, this one works well and passed Prime95 and oveclocked to 4.4GHz with automatic settings on the motherboard.
Cons: Price fluctuates a lot between $189 and $169, sometimes $159...
Other Thoughts: This is my 4th FX 8350, I got to RMA 2, one from TD and one from Newegg.... Not sure was going on but now my CPUs are working as they should. Using my 990FXA-gd80V2 it OC easily to 4.4GHz and is steady!
This chip is fast and I would take it anytime over counterparts.
If you find it on sale, buy it!
Pros: All the features.
Cons: Got a dud. Have to RMA. Newegg doesn't allow refund on CPU.
Other Thoughts: Got the CPU, put it on my motherboard and ran Prime95 right away. After a few seconds workers started to drop and got BSOD. Restarted and done it again, same thing.
Seems like these CPUs are having a lot of issues as it is the second one that I got with the issue at default voltage. And no, it's not the motherboard, my other 8350 works with no issues.
