So far, so great! Works with my AMD FX-9590 8-core
17 March 2015
Summary: Some reviewers said that this does not work with an AMD FX processor. MSI may have done updates to this board since then--my AMD FX-9590 Eight-Core 5.0Ghz Processor works great, so far. I have only had it about a week or two, but WOW, what a MOBO!
Summary: This is an awesome board. I am on about my 5th. They OC like a dream if you don't use cheap memory and have some inclination of what your doing. In W7 my performance numbers are at 7.9 all the way down and in W8 i am at 8.1 to 8.4 all the way down.
Summary: Got this motherboard about a year ago when it was the cheapest one to support 220W Cpu's and it is still working well with no signs of stopping. Paired it with an FX 9370 and a Corsair h100i and easily overclocked to 5ghz.
Summary: Couldn't be happier with this motherboard. I upgraded to replace a burned out processor from an older MSI board, and am extremely pleased with everything to do with this board. The whole board runs cool, thanks to the heatsinks everywhere, and is really well designed.
Summary: AWESOME Motherboard came as described. I am also a big fan of all MSI Motherboards and Video Cards. I think I think MSI puts just as much time and quality into their Computer components as ASUS does. I also like the fact that MSI sticks with one color scheme like ASUS does.
