Good value, may be couple of years old but not showing its age

Ebay
25 April 2011
  • Summary: Right off the bat, I have to say this is an excellent board. Supports crossfire, the latest am3 processors and has plenty of room for expansion. The colored ram sockets are pretty awesome, too. The pcb scheme doesn't match the green lighting of my case, but it doesn't make a big difference anyways.

Would have bought it but . . .

  • Summary: I didn't buy this MB despite having used MSI Main Boards in my home-built personal computers for years. The problem is there's a discrepancy between the title and the technical details. The title says this is MSI 790GX-G65, meaning that the North Bridge is supposedly populated with the AMD 790GX chipset. However, the technical details say it's using 790FX. A small matter, perhaps, but as they say, "Caveat emptor!

Wish someone would have told me this

D. Tennimon, Amazon
19 October 2009
  • Summary: This mobo is awesome! Yes it has the feature to unlock cores on am3 processor that has them locked (example phenom x2) so that it can be a quad core. I ended up buying the athlon x4, which dont get me wrong still is a quad and still is fast, but for the same price I could have gotten the phenom and unlocked it. It would have been equivelent to a $200 quad. Only negative I had to manual set my ram speed to 1600. It auto clocked my 1600 ram to 1333.

Fine MB, only needs a minor update to work with 6 core processors

Ivan, Amazon
19 October 2009
  • Summary: Fine MB, indeed. Even it doesn't recognize the AMD Thuban 6 core processor when started, after updating its BIOS it worked truly good! BIOS updating can be done after the OS has been installed, but it would be better if you do it before. System runs very well with that processor, Corsair 2GB RAM couple, and Western Digital 1 Terabyte HD. MB's ATI integrated graphics is outstanding, but I added an ATI 5700 series graphic card and an ASUS 24" LCD monitor to the combo.

Solid overclocker

Ajiron, Amazon

  • Summary: No problems getting my Black Edition AMD CPU to its highest clock on air... a 400 Mhz jump. Would recommend to anybody, even if not an OC'er, it has all you could need even Crossfire x2.

A wonderful motherboard for non-gamers.

Linguaphile, Amazon
19 October 2009
  • Summary: Quick review: Solid motherboard, great value for the money, quick and easy installation, power and reset buttons on the board, tons of overclocking options, wonderful capabilities. The perfect motherboard for everyday computer usage and even some gaming. It saves you money by having onboard graphics, and is capable of playing HD videos and basically doing everything that you expect from a powerful budget computer. Detailed review: I am not a gamer.
