AMD FX-6100 Zambezi 6-Core 3.3GHz Socket AM3+ 95W Desktop Processor FD6100WMGUSBX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Purchased Oct 2012 and about to hit the 2 year mark and still running solid.

Cons: Memory Controller integrated and seems to be limiting my memory. I have 32gm of ram but not allowing more than 16gb to be usable. I believe this is an issue with the memory controller after many many hours spent researching. I could be wrong but this is the only conclusion I can come to.

Other Thoughts: MSI 990FXA-GD80 V2 Motherboard
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 1600
AMD FX-6100 Zambezi

Logitech M310 Peacock Blue 3 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB RF Wireless Laser Mouse
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Works great!

Cons: Sells for $10 cheaper at the store.

5 out of 5 eggs 1 Year Later Still Great!!!! 08/20/2013

This review is from: MSI 990FXA-GD80 V2 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Excellent stability never crashes runs smoothly excellent features.

Cons: Makes loud noise for 2 seconds when shutting off but hardly a con with how great this board is.

Other Thoughts: I'm writing this follow up review a year later because Im seriously thinking about buying another one since my old (2nd) pc has died (5 year old Foxconn mobo). I have enojoyed this mobo so much and it works so great I wouldnt mind having another one.

Set up:
MSI 99FXA-GD80 Mobo
32GB G.Skill Ripjaws X Series DDR3 1600 (4x8gb)
Rosewill HIVE Series HIVE-650 80 Plus Bronze PSU
AMD FX6100 Zambezi 3.3GHz 95w 6 Core CPU
EVGA GeForce GTX 550 Ti 1GB 192 bit id Card

Main game I play is Perfect World International and I can run 5-6 clients with 0 issues. I imagine I could run more but havent tried, plus against rules to run over 2.
I have yet to have any issues with any game Ive played on this set up.

I may be a proud owner of another one of these Motherboards in the near future. Maybe same set up except 16gb ram and maybe next vid card up GeForce 6XX
