post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
i haven't had an MSI board since the socket 478 days so im new to the brand and need advice on this board.

http://cgi.ebay.com/MSI-DKA790GX-Pla...31755006501482

is it any good or junk and do you think i will be able to hit 3GHz on my 9750 with it?


thanks

oh yeah my cpu cooler keeps my CPU 19C idle without cool n quiet and under prime it maxes at 45C, and my asus board is acting up random reboots and bios hangs, and sometimes it wont detect anything till i clear the cmos it does it at stock clocks too. and i think its time i went crossfire with my 4870

MSI skimps on mosfets; even a heatsinked 4+1 on an MSI board (particular focus: 890GXM-G65 + overclocked 1055T - has happened twice now) can blow up or catch fire on a 125W processor, especially an overclocked one. If your 9750 version is a 95W, you're a bit more on the safe side, but you're screwed if it's a 125W since you obviously plan to overclock. What is the part number on the CPU or product box?

I highly recommend an ASUS or Gigabyte board, hopefully with an 8+2 (or 8+1, 6+2, whatever you can find) mosfet system. See if you can find a Gigabyte MA790X-UD4P used, it'd be an excellent choice for you; I own the DDR3 790XT version

my 9750 is the 95 watt version but i want to go for 3Ghz or atleast same clocks i am now which is running 0.03V over 125 Watt stock voltages so its like 135 watts, and this mobo is going to have to last atleast 2 years maybe 3

MSI 790XT-G45 open box is even cheaper. It's $68.55 shipped. Just buy 2 Enzotech MOS-C10 C1100 Forged Copper and the open box mobo. And a Grand Total: $92.03 shipped. I have bought 4 open box mobo and they was fine.
