Msi worries me.
He only wants $65. I won't overclock much.

Still think this was the best option for your needs in mATX.

What CPU were you using? Were you running prime95 or IBT overclocked?

Sure there are some issues with some MSI VRM's,but I believe for the most part most failures were X6 CPU's (140w+) or highly overclocked X4's running IBT or Prime,which loads the CPU farther than it will ever see in real usage. For stock usage I have no worries running a MSI motherboard with an approved CPU. I have an 890FX GD65 running a 1100T X6 @3.8 GHz for the last 19 months and going strong,not one BSOD. I also had a 970 G45 which I overclocked an X3 450 to 4.5GHz @1.6v daily,never overheated the VRM's.
