MSI 890FXA-GD70 AM3+ AMD 890FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs BIOS issues and poor support 02/18/2014

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

Pros: I would say the board is full featured. The OC dial is nice, as well as easy power option for testing scenarios. Was an amazing board, sometimes.

Cons: FIrst call was about a year into ownership. I was recieving blue screens across a number of games and narrowed it down to the motherboard after switching out parts one by one. The BIOS was clearly incompatable. Called MSI, they referred me to the developer of the game. Narrowed it down again, not game issue BIOS issue, call again, denied, third call got to someone helpful and recieved a custom BIOS. The msi BIOS that came with it hardly supported FX series processors, though they advertise it.

Second issue came about 2 years into owning the MB that has a three year warranty. Not posting, Tested all parts again, no post. CPU socket has failed, call in, RMA is only option. Okay thats fine. I am expected to pay for all shipping. so a failing part, within warranty, will cost you all shipping, handling and insuring the package delivery. Perhapes this is "standard" though I've only seen it with MSI, anyone else sends a box.

Other Thoughts: Okay board, bad for FX series processors, MSI support is a terrible experience andd shows a lack of concern for customers. very cold, no empathy.
