MSI has taken a different path to the over-the-top builds of GIGABYTE, ASUS and ASRock. With the top-end GD80 more in line with the low cost ethos of the AMD FX processor, it's packed in a number of nice features but managed to keep the price tag...

The big difference between this 990FXA-GD80 and MSI's much cheaper 970A-GD45 (besides the befuddling array of characters) is the chipset. The 990FX chipset will let you play with multiple graphics cards, whether they're Nvidia or AMD-flavoured....

The 990FXA-GD80 was limited in the overclocking department but compensated with a high CPU frequency. The resulting speed wasn’t amazing compared with the competition, but it was enough to secure a solid position. The most disappointing aspect of...

Back in early June the AMD 990FX chipset release took us a little off-guard, I mean here we have this all new motherboard series yet are lacking the Bulldozer FX processors to show off the (hopefully) true muscle power. Meanwhile all reviews and...

The MSI 990FXA-GD80 motherboard proved to be a solid performing platform, but it really needs AMD's upcoming Zambezi processors to really show what it can do and those aren't out yet!...

Et lækkert bundkort med mange features. Det understøtter de nyeste AMD cpuer og på til 3 grafikkort. Desværre falder bundkortet igennem når man skal til at overclocke det og generelle ydelse er ikke i toppen i forhold til andre...

Van de geteste 990FX-moederborden is de ASUS Crosshair V duidelijk het compleetst. 6x USB 3.0, Intel LAN, een Realtek ALC889 met X-Fi drivers, een grafische EFI-BIOS, de hoogste voltages, 8 PWM-aansluitingen en ROG Connect is een combinatie van...
