MSI P67A-GD55 1155 Motherboard

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
This review is a work in progress. As I test more CPUs and more graphics cards, I'll be adding more and more results. First, how about some pictures. All of these were taken with my iPhone. I did the best I could, but quality could probably be a bit better. I'm more interested in the test results though. See a picture of the included accessories here. I haven't seen a ton of results on this board, so feel free to post your own experience!

Thanks to MSI for making this review possible.

Other hardware I'm testing with this motherboard:
RAM: 2x2GB ADATA DDR3 (thanks rdrash)
Cooling: Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme Rev.3, and a single stage phase change cooler.
Graphics cards: HD 6970 Lightning , GTX 580 (2x) , GTX 480 (2x) , GTX 295 , 8800 GTX (2x) , 7800 GTX , 7600 GTX , HD 4870 X2 (2x)
*Almost all of these cards are volt modded by me, and will be run at sub-ambient temeratures.




The first CPU I tested: L045B021.



Both of the second two maxed the same, and both were L051B138.



I played with some GTX 295 a little with this CPU so far:





New chips, L050A853. One does 5.4ghz, one is over 5.5ghz.

So here's a quick and dirty GTX 580 run.



And some HD 4870 X2 runs. I'll freeze these GPUs and throw some real clocks on the CPU soon enough.











Some quick testing with a good 5.5ghz chip on air. I didn't want to take it any higher yet without proper cooling.

Was that 5.4GHz OC achieved using the Thermalright 120 or the single stage phase change cooler?

All of them have been on air cooling so far. I have to replace the compressor on my single stage first, which is why I only ran Super Pi at that speed.

Sure thing, on some of the next runs I'll start monitoring temps

Loving this board, added some more benchmark runs.
