It Died.

Caleb D., Newegg
10 March 2016
  • Summary: Would I recommend this piece...Not so much. Buyer beware.
  • Pros: Worked great while it worked.
  • Cons: Day 7 of up and running, the motherboard took up a bad habit on me, and started smoking. Burned place on the back of the motherboard, behind the Military Class piece (what I would assume is a resistor/capacity piece.) Bought the motherboard from a friend of mine, still in the box after he'd decid...

Great motherboard with minor flaws

Michael B., Newegg
6 March 2016
  • Summary: I would recommend this motherboard to a friend if its on sale. However for the price (129.99) I feel you should choose another motherboard.
  • Pros: I've been using this motherboard for almost 24 hours a day since I got it in December 2014 and it has been working flawlessly. I was worried when I bought it because it didn't say it supported an FX-8350 but thanks to other reviews I took the gamble and it worked fine. I have a stable overclock u...
  • Cons: There is significant VDroop with this motherboard where the CPU Vcore voltage spikes and drops causing minor instability in higher overclocks. Over volting to 1.480 Voltage solved it for the most part. It became apparent when stress testing that you can't overclock an FX-8350 very high with this ...

No USB 3.0 Connection

Ron H., Newegg
1 January 2016
  • Summary: I ordered this as part of a kit that included tower. Tower had a 3.0 that needs to connect to a 16 pin slot. You would think the Newegg people would provide you know if the tower comes with a USB 3.0 it should have a connection point.
  • Pros: Works well
  • Cons: No 16 pin USB 3.0 Connection to board

Not good for windows ten and can get better one.

Anonymous, Newegg
16 September 2015
  • Summary: Not good enough
  • Pros: It works... This mother is not for anyone who wants to push there computer or for extreme gaming... There are rarely any drivers out for this product and it already seems to be aging not very well. If you were still to get a 990FXA-GD65, then get the gaming version. AMD mother boards aren't that ...

great motherboard

William E., Newegg
19 August 2015
  • Summary: like i said I'm about to buy another on of these, well worth the $100
  • Pros: amazing motherboard i haven't found a better one yet. this the mobo in my main pc and the one I'm building now all the others I've tried (7 of them) haven't compared to the ease of this one.
  • Cons: the only thing i have to say about this is the fact there is no usb 3.0 headers, but it still has some in the back so it doesn't bother me so much.

Solid Board

Michael T., Newegg
7 August 2015
  • Summary: Overall I'm extremely happy with the board. It works well and has no issues. It supported all my hardware with no problems.
  • Pros: Well built little board. Installed quickly and booted right up with no problems. Ample system fan connectors and back USB ports. Runs solidly with no heat issues and no errors. Surprisingly decent on-board audio was a pleasant surprise.
  • Cons: The BIOS was severely outdated. By over a year. Expect to be updating the BIOS first thing. Lack of an internal USB 3.0 was annoying, but not unexpected. The BIOS setup screen is awful. In my opinion the new graphical layout takes away functionality while adding nothing useful.

Awesome Motherboard

Irish D., Newegg
13 July 2015
  • Pros: I have been an MSI customer for the longest time. This one never disappoints. Its a bang for the buck.
  • Cons: It could use a USB 3 connector for the board but I'm not complaining since it has built in at the back panel
