I personally think it looks nice. DDR3 2133 OC.. nice.

And, folding anyone?

I will give MSI 1 positive. They sure made that board LOOK good. It does really look good. But that's probably all.

I don't know..

This board looks really well made. And it looks like MSI has taken the time to revamp their appearance. And I'm not just talking about how the board looks.

I wouldn't mind giving this board a shot on a next build, but I've become too much a DFI fanboy.

Hey, you can always RMA if it doesn't go well.


My analogy has always been, "If it looks good, then it must be good."

And it's proven true this far.

It sure is. MSI really did their homework when designing this board.

Or Newegg?


And they can't be much worse than DFI, from what I've heard at least. Hopefully not.

Limited Non-Refundable 30-Day Return Policy.


And they both are about the same. MSI's quality is what lets them down tho.

Ahh, I see what you're point now.

Nonetheless, these boards seem to be a hit or miss. Granted you get a good one, I'm sure it'd be a great board. Heck, I'm sure the same thing could even be said about ECS. But we'd be comparing apples to oranges then.

It is odd though that MSI made it to the Top 20 Taiwain Global Brands.. I would've expected Gigabyte to have been on there.

Yea the funny thing was I had a ECS board and it was decent. So I guess its the luck of the draw. But I tried my luck with MSI over 5 times and each time well you can guess.

thats already out here..someone tested it and it seems same old sh** still OC's weak..its max voltage cannot go up 1.45v in bios..dunno why??they used a Phenom2 x3 720BE and they tried a shot of benchies..and it didn't scaled well we used the same processor on a A7DA-S and it scored much higher..i dunno why??i think we need to wait for the real AM3 chips (AMD8 series) to unleash the true potential of AM3 under ddr3 platform..same as the gd65 is out here

edit:in addition it cannot unlock the 4th core..
