MSI GeForce GTX 980 GTX 980 GAMING 4G 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support G-SYNC Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Runs any game at max settings. This is my second board for dual SLI.

Cons: Clocks don't match making SLI unusable with board's clocks synced. I have to enter different timings when using Afterburner. Even at stock clocks I have problems and TDR errors.

Other Thoughts: My first board boosts above and beyond while second board just meets advertised boost speed. I am curious to what MSI will do for me or what kind of arguement they will come up with. I shouldn't have to downclock one of my boards to use SLI.

MSI Z97 PC Mate LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: So far so good. It booted right up and has run flawlessly with 1866 Sniper RAM. XMP profile was recognized and entered without issue.

Cons: I/O plate is the cheapest, chintziest looking piece of junk I have ever seen in my life. It is just plain metal with stamped labels. No black finish, no nothing except for a plate.

Other Thoughts: I have worked in engineering firms where the sample I/O plates looked better. No overclock on the G3258 I have installed but CPU temps are low and the board feels solid and well built.

CORSAIR Professional Series CMPSU-850AX/RF 850W ATX12V v2.31 / EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply Factory Refurbished
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Works as advertised. The felt bag is a nice touch. The cables were brand new and the PSU didn't have a scratch on it.

Cons: None at the moment.

Other Thoughts: Worth the extra savings. Gives me power to spare for a Z97 PC Mate from MSI and an Intel G3258. Video board is a EVGA GTX0680 s/c and I have 4 Cougar case fans.
