  • Conclusion: Overclockability With the Phenom II 965 BE in the 890FXA, I couldn’t leave it at its stock clocks for long. I jumped into the bios with a crazy look in my eye and wasted no time finding the CPU multiplier and bumping the clock up to a healthy 3.8 Ghz without touching any voltage.

9 September 2010
  • Excerpt: It’s almost impossible to drop a processor into MSI’s 890FXA-GD70 motherboard without overclocking it. The reason has nothing to do with MSI not letting you run a chip at stock speeds—it does—but the temptation to goose your processor presents itself at every turn.
  • Pros: OC Genie rocks; thoughtful layout; SATA placement.
  • Cons: Performance slightly trails the competition.

4 July 2010
  • Summary: The AMD 890FX chipset itself is already string at mere baseline settings. We like the added bandwidth available on the PCIe slots, the sheer tweak-ability, the embedded gigabit NIC and sure, the integration of the SATA 6G controller.

MSI 890FXA-GD70 Motherboard Review

27 April 2010
  • Conclusion: The MSI 890FXA-GD70 has a good layout with some great features – we’re always happy to see DrMOS because it works well , and the POST readout and clean layout are also boons.
