This review is from: MSI 990FXA-GD65V2 Desktop Motherboard - AMD 990FX Chipset - Socket AM3+
Pros: This MB has everything I need. well laid out. 2 X16 slot spaced for keeping 2 vid cards cool.
Cons: none as of this writing
Other Thoughts: I got this MB for SLI. It has 1.5 slot separation for the extra space needed to keep the heat off the top video card in my AIR cooled system. It is 10C to 15C cooler that the one slot spacing of the 990FXA-GD80.
2XGTX660Ti @ 51c & 53C maxed out.
This review is from: MSI 990FXA-GD80 V2 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Feature rich platform and AMD 8 core ready. Fits my case and two GTX660 Ti.
Cons: PCIE X16 slot #2 does not provide the power needed for the graphics card to reach DEFAULT clocks. SLI does not work as the #2 cards lack of power causes extreme screen lag. The PCIE X16 Slot issue was cause for an RMA.
Other Thoughts: If the eggs were for MSI, they would get 3 for the QA. I have an RMA from MSI so 5eggs for CS.
newegg delivers what the manufactures sell. all my eggs are for them.
Pros: My initial review and RMA was premature. There was a bios issue with my ASUS mainboard that caused the card to fail. Too bad for me as I missed out on a great card.
newegg and MSI have been kind to me, gladly refunding the purchase price.
Cons: this video card has been discontinued. darn shame
Other Thoughts: room for a GTX 690 in the future. I bought a pair of GTX 660 Ti PE for now!READ FULL REVIEW
