David Merchant, Amazon
21 July 2014
  • Summary: Board appears to be high quality construction (but I'm not an expert in that. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars is it is kinda pricey and there is a problem with 16 Gb memory. In bootup mode, it shows the full 16 Gb but in the UEFI (or whatever the software BIOS is called) AND finally in the OS (Linux,) only 8 Gb is found. Difficult to find the solution to this.

MSI Motherboard

NiteHawk, Amazon

  • Summary: I always liked the MSI motherboards. The first one they sent me had a bad usb3 port, they replaced the board with no problem. Once installed into the case, it fired up with no problems. I haven't tried overclocking yet, but this board is simple to do so. I've left my computer on for a month, and had no problem. I did had to changed out one of my older HD since this board only handle the SATA HD.

Good board, but

akolt, TigerDirect.com
31 October 2013
  • Summary: Stable and comparable performance under linux, no issues finding drivers. Not able to update bios to a newer version. Even MSI site for GD80 v2 stops at bios v11.9, which is more then a year old. Also I had some strange performance issue with Samsung SSD 830 256g - was really slow, under linux only and 256g ssd only. It was gone after slight overclocking of CPU and memory.

good motherboard, no major issues.

Patrick A., Newegg

  • Summary: Sound card sounds perfect when run with pulse audio in SUSE Linux 12.1 x64, proving its a driver issue.
  • Pros: No major issues, system is very stable.
  • Cons: Sound card has lots of crackling issues when minimizing and maximizing windows in windows xp.

MSI 990FX GD80

David879, Amazon
21 February 2012
  • Summary: Out of the box and into the case. Plugged in the AMD 8 core 8150 and Boom, it was ALIVE, Oh not to mention FAST with 16gig of Mem. Only gripe I have is it seems MSI is real picky on their rebate information as they rejected a copy of my Order/Invoice I printed from Amazon and stuffed in the envelope with my rebate form and said it was not with the required information ? That's why I took off 1 star. I contacted them but no response yet.

Motherboard review

Jaycee, Amazon
19 November 2011
  • Summary: I decided to give this board a try because I am normally an Asus or Gigabyte user. I liked the overclocking features of the board and some other features fit the build I wanted to do. I have done some builds in the past but I still made a mistake when assembling. I forgot that both the 24pin and the 8 pin power had to be connected to the board. Yeah, dummy, I know.

Great Motherboard after bios flash

Troy A. Harrell "kotipelto", Amazon
7 November 2011
  • Summary: So far so good after i flashed the bios. I clocked the my girlfriends 955 cpu in it at 3.8 with a 250 fsb and some 1600 g.skill x memory at 1666 and a coolit systems eco cpu cooler. The bios is quit different than the asus chfv so it took a little time to figure out how to do it. Its been a great board so far and once i got used to the updated bios it was alot easier to to get stable at 250fsb than the asus board.

  • Summary: Viel Zubehör dabei wie immer bei msi sli verbindungsbrücken in 3 Längen was auch erforderlich ist da die Grafikkarten sehr weit ausanander liegen - Punkt leider keine crossfire Bridge für ati karten dabei obwohl das Bord beide warianten kann.
