Summary: Love it. The PSI-E slots are rather close, and you'll hardly need 5...but ya...lol, I was originally wanting to do bitmining and worldcommunitygrid on this cpu, but actually made it my gaming powerhouse (I can handle a lot).
Great motherboard - Poor customer service knowledge

Summary: I got this board on sell for probably half the price here which makes it a better deal. I picked this one over others for multiple reasons: 1) It has 5 PCI Express slots (x16, x16, x8, x8, x4) 2) The spacing between PCI Express X16 is enough (PCIE_1 and PCIE_5) for breathing when crossfire 3) I can...
Summary: I got this because I needed a motherboard with 4 PCI express 16 and this board fit the bill. At first I thought all of the extra features were going to be a waste of time, but now I dont know how I lived without them.
Summary: The 890FX MSI MOBO was easy to install. When mated to an AMD PhenomII 3.5 ghz , you can EASILY overclock to 4.1 ghz with stability. Corsair Vengeance 8 gigs is stable with timings of 8-9-8-21 AWESOME! This mobo kicks butt.!! NO QUESTION ABOUT IT!.. WHAT ERRORS?? NONE!
Summary: I like Micro-Star International (MSI) Motherboards, and most of their products, I have never had one fail on me yet, but the 3 year warrenty on their motherboard is like insurance incase anything does happen.
Summary: The MSI 890FXA-GD70 is the ideal MB for those who like to push the performance of their systems. It is designed to enable you to push your processor to its limits! I was surprised at how easy MSI made it to overclock the entire system with a dial and LED indicators built into the board.
