This review is from: MSI 990FXA-GD80 V2 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Board layout is pretty nice. Lots of fan headers! Tons of space around the CPU terminal. Bios setup quick and simple. Board posted on initial startup, and I have had no issues.
Cons: The new generation graphics cards are huge dual slot monsters. The fan/heat-sink shrouds on these cards are also huge. When cross-firing on this board, the lower card's shroud contacts the header pins on the lower portion of the board. The power/reset/oc buttons as well as the lcd display are completely covered. I had to shave 1/8" of shroud to clear the pins. Cannot take an egg off. We builders do what we have to.
Other Thoughts: Thank you Newegg and MicroStar! I have been purchasing from you both for at least 14 years. I have never received a doa product from either. Both companies have exceeded my expectations for years, and I have never had an issue w/ either company's Tech Support. Keep up the good work. Hey MSI Devs, can you make the ATX boards 1/2" longer on the southern edge? :)READ FULL REVIEW
