I'm planning on upgrading to a 2500k soon, and I found a deal on Craigslist for a 2500k + P67A-GD65 for $300, however I was planning on getting a P8P67 as I know that it's a great mobo. MSI has a poor track record with failures on AM3 mobos, but I don't know if that carries over to LGA1155.

So, should I wait and pick up the P8P67 + 2500k new for $400, or take this 2500k + P67A-GD65 for $300?

I do plan on overclocking, hoping to hit at least 4.4ish but will be going as high as possible.

I'm running a MSI P67a-GD65 mobo and 2600k... My setup has been solid so far and I'm running 4.7 ghz 24/7 (only limited by my cooler). But this board has its own set if quirks... it doesnt support offset voltage overclocking and I never managed to run my 2133 ram at its rated speed beacuse my mobo refuses to boot (on any version of UEFI).

So in the end the board is solid and overclocks nicely but some UEFI bugs make the ASUS option look really attractive


Thats my own opinion tho so take a look a look around OCN threads to get some different ones

I really like my board. The only drawback is that I can't have Crossfire and a PCIe Soundcard. I've gotten my chip to 4.7ghz stable on this board (Didn't try higher with a CM Hyper 212+).

I love my MSI P67-GD65. Also running a 4.7Ghz but @ 1.344v, with a SLI GTX 580 setup, and 16GB of 1866Mhz RAM.

I use this for all of my Memory and Video card reviews and it runs like a champ.

I have run everything from Mushkin 1600Mhz 7-8-7-24, to Mushkin 2133Mhz 9-10-11-28 with no errors.

When I first got it I did notice that it had problem with my Razer Deathadder inputs being backwards within UEFI though. That has since been fixed.

For $300 I would say go for it though.
