[Vortez] MSI AMD 9-Series Mainboards - Page 4  

post #31 of 39
Wow, the GD65 looks almost "naked". Between the the 2 PCI Ex16, there's lots of space there. Also the CPU power pin is located on the bottom, which I kind of find it odd. Hmm...so let's see here...

ASUS Crosshair V, Sabretooth, GD80, Gigabyte UD3, UD5 and UD7. Mmmmm...so many choices to choose from! Can't wait.

That's not a CPU power connector, it's an auxiliary PCI-E power connector for when your cards need more juice. The CPU power is still up in the spot it's normally at.

Here's a better image:

I also like the ASROCK board
Will keep an open mind to MSI assuming the boards no longer catch fire
Anything but Asus this time around for me

Ehh...thanks for clearing that. But when you view the board like that, don't you think its "bare"? I mean its almost as if there's so much empty spaces around.

atleast these 8+2 boards shouldn't catch on fire with a heafty pc...
I don't mind msi, they just got a bad rep last round with lack of vrm's, good to see them taking it up a notch.
The GD70 is stupidly 4+1, but the GD65 (only two PCI-E x16 slots) is 8+2. Still, I'd wait to see what any of their future boards can do before investing in MSI again.

I still miss DFI... I'll probably go Gigabyte this time.

Another listing with the RAM stated to run at 1333 MHz... the standard for AM3+ boards is 1866 MHz... can't these websites get the specs right?

Makes the board look tacky.
I agree with this, but otherwise it's a very good looking board.
