I'm asking because I am building a SB system and have already purchased 2x4GB 1866 rated patriot viper extreme RAM. Will this be an issue? Any advice would be great.
It supports 1866 in the BIOS. Not sure why it wouldn't say otherwise on the Egg...

hey guys, your club has a new member! i just bought one of these on newegg last night. ive had everything i need for the Sandy build except the mobo, so when i saw them appear on neweggs site, i started reading as much about MSI as i could find. needless to say, i was pleased with what i found, so i bought the GD65. i was waiting for asus and gigabyte to appear on the egg, but 2 things made me change. 1, i couldnt really find anything bad about MSI boards, and 2, if i were to buy the gigabyte or asus board equal to the GD65, i would have spent more then the $180 i did... besides, if im not pleased, i can always return it within 30 days.

Well I like many here will be able to exchange this board for the new B3 stepping in the coming days. Alternately I can exchange it for credit towards another board. Anyone here see anything with similar pricing they like? I'm trying to find one with as few PCI slots as possible. So far only the Asus Maximus seems to have all PCIe slots but it is $200 more. I'll prob just end up keeping this one because it seems to work well and I'm used to it by now, but I will be looking at the others just to see what is out there.

Yeah, while I've been a loyal MSI user for the last eight or so years, I have been debating on giving Gigabyte or Asus a shot to see how they've changed over the years. I just hate having to learn how to decipher each manufacturer's terminology as none of them use the same terms in their BIOS.

I'm going to keep my shiny b3 once I get it though and wait for ivy bridge to come out before I decide to spend anymore money on sb stuff.
