I hear ya there --- I heard good things about the board, read some reviews - got a really positive feel about the whole thing. A lot of my "oh man gotta get the highest everything even if you use 5% of your power" friends said "get the 890FXA-GD70" instead. Frankly, I can say with absolutely certainty, I will never run more than 2 graphics card in my system. Ever. I can say with relatively strong confidence I will never have 2 cards in my system (about 70% certainly). For this reason, the higher end board (890FXA-GD70) seemed like I was paying 50 additional dollars for extra PCI-E channels / slots I will never use.

Hindsight however is much more in focus - in my case not quite 20/20 though I can only dream of that level of vision~ - and I now think I, at the very least, I could have benefited from a bit more research before the purchase. This, to me, is the honest truth.

Saying this, and I wish there was a way to drop a [please read previous statement a second time and pause to imply consideration and deep thought on it] I think I still, if I were to do it again,would make the same decision.
Even with the odd "voltage jumps on CPU above what its set at for some reason and tons of web searching shows not only do others have this issue, no one seems to have a way to fix it - its repeatable on other boards AND unsolvable" - I still think its a good board overall, and I'm fairly happy with the purchase.

Reasons that get points in the "do it again" category: Great Chipset (with the 990 out now and being nearly identical though- might not be a bonus anymore) - Two full PCI-E 16x slots (that, btw, can support PCI-E 4x and 1x cards too - good factoid that not too many in my life seem to remember / know) - Great placement of things on board, including the FAN headers and the SATA slots... really love where these are~ - and lastly (and perhaps most important) - the Price-to-what-you-get-Ratio. The board was cheap for what is basically a top-tier board. Its not god-tier with only 2x graphics card slots, but definitely top-tier.


Issues that made it worth considering a different board: This voltage issue - "Better" (basically newer) chipset is now out - the hate MSI seems to get in many circles reference their motherboards. I seem to recall there's a whole giant club here that are devoted to nothing else other than bashing MSI boards...

The voltage issue is important to a lot of people though... so that might be the single thing to consider. It seems, based on my semi limited research, that this issue is literally UNIVERSAL... no one with this board that I have either read posts from / talked to who overclock and monitor voltages (which is honestly a small percentage of owners in general - most people set and forget / trust motherboard settings and not look in HWMonitor) -are excluded from this issue.

---- Apologies for the long winded post... but hopefully its written in a clear way that expresses my thoughts on if or if not you should reconsider the board. To completely round off the thoughts - I'll close with the classic "I'm still happy with this purchase" comment restated - but also I'll drop a little subnote down here at the end. If a comparable / 'better' board were to become available for the same price from someone like ASUS - I would definitely give that some thought... and this is double true now that the 900 series is to market, and it seems to be a equal / improvement in every way, without any downside Ive heard about / scene.

Whatever you decide - good luck and best wishes~

To just add something to continue the OP's overclocking discussion / issues:

Try the settings being suggested here, but don't be too surprised if they either aren't "Prime-Stable" or even if they won't boot for you - all the while they work flawlessly for the individuals posting them. Even though chips are mass produced - there is still a great deal of variance between them, and what works for one chip may, or may not, work for yours. It really is a lot of patience and trial and error. Good luck though with everyone's suggestions and feel free to update us all on your successes / attempts with these various settings. I, for one, definitely want to hear how it goes!

Lol my computer dosent even start with 3000mhz NB

as for the CPU-NB vdd ive tryed that, the NB is very hot when i place my hand on it and i crash alot from what i can tell i tryed CPU-NB 1.2 i seem to crash less so i dont think turning it up will help.

btw at 1.4 CPU-V core i crash alot at 4.0 anyways seems to low.

Guys,just because your PC freezes does not mean your CPU OC is unstable.Could very well be,but what he described does sound like GPU OC.You have to use a process of elimination.Drop the GPU down to stock then test the CPU OC.Then drop the CPU down and test the GPU OC.Same withthe NB and RAM. Then you have the rest of the system to do also.Your CPU temps might be fine,but you could be overheating the VRM's or the NB or whatever.You have to use a systematic approach,always monitor your whole system temps.You could even have a NB heatsink not seated causing this.There is no reason what-so-ever that board won't do it-it is up to you to figure it out...with our help of course.

Iv'e been overclocking for years,and I've just figured out how to get the best speed on my current system after having it for 2 months.It takes time and patience.

look at my topic: http://www.overclock.net/amd-cpus/10...p-1090t-3.html

also can not stabilize too I think it's manufacturing ... me and you are unlucky

It's the fact you have a cheap board-don't lump every CPU/Board with your results.
