Blue screen first day and after replacement MSI mobo, AMD A8 and gSkill 8 gig ripjaws memory

Rogers A., Newegg
20 July 2012
  • Summary: I would like to return it to Newegg but it has taken me nearly a year to get to this point being retired and living in Guadalajara Mexico. Getting parts shipped back cost $50/ea for the mobo and cpu. Waited to pick them up on trips to the USA. !@#$!
  • Pros: Newegg had good price for what I thought was a fast system, hdmi, USB3, etc. Nice case.
  • Cons: Memory check sum errors, other errors causing blue screens. Got replacements for MSI A75MA-G55, the AMD A8, and the (2) 4 gig gSkill ripjaws memory. Still have same problem.

Died in a week. replacement bad as well.

Dale N., Newegg
3 November 2011
  • Summary: Hardware isn't perfect. I can accept that some will fail. Returning, while it took them a long time, was relatively painless. I would have given 4 eggs if the replacement worked. It did not. This leads me to believe it is a systemic problem in the fab process...
  • Pros: Worked well for a week. USB3.0 and many USB2.0 ports.
  • Cons: It died within a week. Getting an RMA was no problem; however, it took them 2.5 weeks to get a replacement back to me. The replacement was bad as well (straight out of the box, I couldn't even get a beep code to troubleshoot). The manual is fairly useless (except for hooking things up) - there is...

Northbridge is on fire.

Adaemman, Amazon
22 August 2011
  • Summary: I'm always afraid the northdbridge on this thing is going to explode. Even after redoing the paste on it I can't get it below 80C. It looks like this is a known issue and the only way you could correct this is to throw a bigger heatsink on the north bridge.
