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

Does well for a mid range.

  • Summary: Would not recommend for gaming, or video editing.
  • Pros: Solid build,
  • Cons: It can't handle the ram speeds as advertised. I only have one HyperX Fury Black Series 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 and had to reduce the speed down. Not sure if I even want to add more ram to the board as I'm not getting my money's worth.

User Review

RUOFAN W., Newegg

  • Pros: It's a very cheap MB using a 990FX chipset. Good quality. Working good.
  • Cons: No front panel USB 3.0. The second PCIE 16x slot is too close to the power supply and you barely can plug your graphic card in. Even if you do so, there is no more room for fan. CF/SLI is impossible.

  • Pros: USB 3.0; SATA 6.0 Gbs
  • Cons: Newegg is advertising on their Youtube overview that the motherboard comes with 2x, Molex to Sata Power Adapter. However, this is NOT TRUE!

No 20 pin header on MB...what?

Johnnie H., Newegg
14 March 2013
  • Summary: I rma'd it and purchased an ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0 AM3+ AMD 990FX, and guess what? IT COMES WITH A 20 PIN HEADER STANDARD!!! Amazing... Also, the PCI express cards don't require an entire 6 pin cable running across the face of the MB to the psu...definate plus there
  • Pros: Good, solid, reliable board; no issues with installation what so ever. Outstanding bios menu, and the led's look very nice inside a case. Military II construction on heat sinks is very nice looking, and gives the board an "industrial" look and feel.
  • Cons: There is absolutely no reason why a MB vendor does not include a 20 pin connector for your front panel USB. This is 2013...any MB vended/manufactured should have this standard. I have no idea why anyone would manufacture or distribute a "new" board with no 20 pin header. How long has usb 3.0 been...

  • Summary: maybe i have a bad mobo or what? works with ssd's wich is nice boot up time from actual press to post takes longer than before i had my ssd
  • Pros: usb3 and its pretty big, has space for everything i need
  • Cons: it has super bright blue leds above the cpu, my case is a haf932 case and its all red, defeats the purpose, wish it has an extra pci slot so when i run cross fire i can actually put a wifi card in there but instead i made a 100ft LAn cable. the thing i hate about it the most is that when i plug i...

Good board, has issues

Mike R., Newegg
31 October 2011
  • Summary: Even though I only had one major issue, this is the first and last time I buy an MSI motherboard because I can go elsewhere without having to jump through hoops to get a really basic setup to work. I should have listened to the reviews.
  • Pros: Very well built board, the workmanship is top notch. FX AM3+ ready, supports up to 32GB DDR3 RAM, backwards compatable to AM3 platform, supports both SLi and Crossfire, UEFI BIOS is the wave of the future, you can even use your mouse
  • Cons: Wacky extra 6-pin power connector for PCIe that you need to plug into the board itself, in addition to the basic power units (4/8pin power, 24 pin power). It would not power my XFX Radeon HD 6970 with a 700W Corsair PSU and it never posted to BIOS, just beeped 3 times, 1 long, 2 short (video syst...

  • Summary: Har inte provat än men kortet har ingen intern usb 3.0 lite surt måste bli bättre på att läsa vad som ingår. Blir att köpa ett usb kort för att få frontpanelens usb 3.0 att funka.

  • Summary: Dålig kylning på NB/SB låg på 90-100°c. CPU throttlade och låg på 60+°c. Säkert ett måndagsexemplar... överlag var det ett hyfsat kort. Men köp Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3, bättre kylning på NB/SB och mer pcie platser.
