MSI 990FXA-GD80 V2 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: The options it is supposed to have...

Cons: Worked alright out of the box. Took a little bit to get the hard drives recognized properly through the bios... and it would randomly cut in and out with one of the hard drives for a couple weeks. Around month three, I begin getting post code FF. I tried a different power supply, various memory and hard drive configurations, and even reseated the CPU. I unplugged everything and plugged it all back in again with a different video card. Post code FF still.

I RMA'd the original I had, just to receive another dud. This time one of the fan slots on the RMA'd board lit up, sparked, and burnt out before I had a chance to get the power unplugged... it also had a post code FF and this was just a very bare bones test boot.

So here I am with a second board that was supposed to be working. I have never had this much trouble with a motherboard and I thought I liked MSI products. I may try to RMA this board again, but I shouldn't have to try out three boards when apparently the one that was "swapped" wasn't tested. I wish I could just get my money back. It has already cost me 2-3 months without a desktop and now I have to move across the country next week due to military obligations, so I won't be able to actually send the parts off since I won't have a solid address for a couple months.

1 out of 5 eggs Worked Great... for awhile. 04/01/2013

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

Pros: USB ports, AM3+, features I bought it for...

Cons: Worked alright out of the box. Took a little bit to get the hard drives recognized properly through the bios... and it would randomly cut in and out with one of the hard drives for a couple weeks. Around month three, I begin getting post code FF. I tried a different power supply, various memory and hard drive configurations, and even reseated the CPU. I unplugged everything and plugged it all back in again with a different video card. Post code FF still.

Other Thoughts: All-in-all I'm pretty disappointed with it since obviously it isn't working for me. I can't seem to win with computer products.
