27 July 2010
  • Summary: MSI's newest offering supporting AMD's line of processors comes in the form of the 890FXA-GD70. This board could potentially be a P55 killer, with its balance of features and performance prowess. How does it do in the HardOCP gauntlet and better yet, how well does it overclock?

MSI 890FXA-GD70 AM3 Motherboard

OverClock Intelligence Agency
16 July 2010
  • Summary: With the release of the Thuban processors earlier this year, AMD has brought six core CPUs into the realm of affordable desktop machines. And their latest 800-series chipsets are designed to fully support them. Of course the new chips are also backwards compatible (with a BIOS update) to older 700-series AM3 and even some AM2+ boards. But to realize the full functionality of the Turbo Core and other features, the newer chipsets must be used.

  • Conclusion: MSI’s 890FXA-GD70 is a fantastic premium board at a very reasonable price. For $169 USD (w/ $20 rebate) you get Phenom II X6 support out of the box, Quad CrossFireX support, a usable PCI slot when using CrossFire, a Crosshair IV contender, and appealing aesthetics that complete the package.

MSI 890FXA GD70 Motherboard review

  • Excerpt: 1 Flares 1 Flares × MSI have a reputation for making great motherboards and their previous 790FX GD70 board received much critical acclaim. Not willing to rest on their laurels however, they went back to the drawing board and made some changes with the 890FXA GD70 in regards to board layout. With the new AMD 890FX chipset and SB850 Southbridge complimenting the USB 3.0 and SATA 6gbps ports this board looks to be fully locked n’ loaded.

MSI 890FXA-GD70 Review

Overclock3D

  • Conclusion: As we've only recently reviewed the mATX 890GXM-G65, this is more of a companion piece than a standalone review. We found that the £110 G65 was a great motherboard. A pocket powerhouse. Costing substantially more (around £165) this GD70 has to offer plenty to make it worth purchasing. So does it? To paraphrase the Simpsons Reverend Lovejoy, the short answer is no with a but, and the long answer is yes with an if. Let's take those in order for simplicities sake.
  • Pros: High Bus Speed, Good Cooling, Lots of features
