MSI X99S SLI Plus LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

1 out of 5 eggs Warranty is meaningless 09/12/2016

This review is from: MSI X99S SLI Plus LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: After working with the motherboard for about a week, everything works as advertised. Very happy so far, board is heavy and well built with many bells and whistles. I have had excellent performance so far.
My new rig:
MSI X99S MPOWER LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99
Intel Core i7-5930K @ 3.50GHz
Cooler Master Hyper D92
CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 16GB (4 x 4GB) 2800
SanDisk Ultra II SDSSDHII-480G-G25
2 MSI GeForce GTX 970's in SLI

Cons: If you are going to run SLI or Crossfire, understand that you must use the top two PCIe 3.0 slots to 16 lanes for each card and it is tight, so one card stays hotter than the other because of airflow issues. Also don't freak out when you plug in high speed dd4 memory and it auto configs at 2133, you have to enable xms profile in BIOS for it to run at what ever speed advertised.

Other Thoughts: Board completely died before warranty expired. Does not even POST. Called MSI tech support to try to setup a RMA, rude guy says RMA must be setup at the website, will not do RMA over the phone. Guy said 6 to 8 weeks minimum, so ordered a ASUS board to replace the bad MSI board, not going to sit around with no computer for 8 weeks waiting for repair. I installed ASUS board and computer is working now, so I go online and submit RMA on 3 separate occasions, but no response ????. Now what, if they don't respond to your RMA request how can you get a RMA to have it repaired, what a garbage company. I hope screwing me on this one motherboard is worth losing my business for life.

5 out of 5 eggs Nice Video Card 09/29/2015

This review is from: MSI GeForce GTX 980 Ti GAMING 6G

Pros: Sold my 2 GTX 970 cards in SLI and replaced them with GTX 980ti. SLI 970's were in PCIe 3.0 x 16 slot and x8 slot, so was not getting x16 performance. Now have single x16 card, also less heat in case and less power needed for a better performance. Card runs around 165 F under heavy graphics load. Card fans are very quit, happy so far.

Cons: did not get a free game with it????

How about sending me a steam code for the new Batman ???

5 out of 5 eggs Nice Flash Drive 09/29/2015

This review is from: Silicon Power 64GB Jewel J80 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (SP064GBUF3J80V1T)

Pros: Needed a USB 3.0 64GB drive for work. This one is very rugged (Titanium), nice and small. Use it as a WinPE bootable drive for all sorts of things, so far so good.

Cons: none
