MSI MSI Gaming 990FXA-GAMING AM3+/ AM3 AMD 990FX & SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Looks nice. Color scheme is mostly black
Plenty of fan pinouts
UEFI BIOS is fairly intuitive. Gives you access to everything you would need to manage

Cons: The fan profile page within BIOS works well for the CPU fan pinout. However, it does not work for the Sysfan pinouts. They do not respond to any profile you set it to and run at full speed regardless. This has been tested with multiple PWM fans and I saw no change in fan speeds.

It also will not support 2133Mhz RAM, even from a supposed compatible RAM. I had to lower it to 1866Mhz in order to maintain stability. I have verified that I have the latest BIOS update, and still the issue occurs.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I would still recommend this board as a decent AM3+ board. It has many features and lots of options within BIOS. If MSI would fix the issues with RAM compatibility and the Fan profile settings within BIOS. It would be a great choice for most users.

Pros: Installed fine.
Card ran at proper speed.
Fan was quiet under load.

Cons: If anything could be a con, I guess it would be that the voltage is locked.

4 out of 5 eggs Decent 08/28/2013

This review is from: SUNBEAMTECH PMTK PSU Modding Tool Kit

Pros: Work well for their purpose.

Cons: Can be seen as cheaply made compared to others.

Other Thoughts: These work just fine if used properly. The only way you'll be breaking these is if you're not using it how it was intended, or getting too rough. You cannot man-handle these, it takes finesse.

Remember that when purchasing this product. Use with care.
