1 out of 5 eggs MSI not so good... 12/28/2013

This review is from: MSI 890FXA-GD70 AM3+ AMD 890FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Board originally worked very well, aside from randomly freezing when trying to enter BIOS.

Cons: Board died during a BIOS flash using MSI Live Update tool. I had to have the 1.15 BIOS to install my new FX 8350 CPU. RMA'd the board, received a refurbished one a few weeks later.

The refurbished board had the 1.15 BIOS on it, the 8350 would not post at all, although my old PII x4 955BE would fire up just fine. I updated to the MSI 1.16 beta BIOS and still had the same issues.

I have since RMA'd the CPU and am awaiting a new one, as I don't have another board that supports this CPU to verify whether the CPU works or not.

I have also discovered that on this refurb'd board, the analog audio ports on the back panel do not work. I've tested with 3 different sets of speakers. My USB headphones and my monitor plugged up with HDMI both have working audio, the analog ports just do not work.

Other Thoughts: When first contacting MSI about my board being dead, the support agent could only say 2 words. "Clear CMOS". He just kept saying that over and over. Eventually he said to go to MSI website and request RMA. I've thus far had nothing but headaches with the refurb'd board they sent me, and cannot get any help from MSI. You may want to steer clear of MSI products!
