I'm extremely satisfied. A new mobo with these features is 2x the price.
13 April 2013
Summary: Despite being refurbished, the product is indistinguishable from a new one in every way except not coming in the original box. Mine came with the manufacturer stickers placed on it as if it were a new product, 3 sealed SATA cables, and an SLI connector. No manual, but that can be easily accessed off the MSI website. The price is also fantastic for what this motherboard has to offer.
Summary: If you are looking at the BIOS or whatever advanced setting, the basic interface will bore you. But its still pretty straight forward. This mobo is tough, withstands heat too. Its strong so just go for it. But ofcourse, I always advice to get the later editions.
Summary: I bought this motherboard in April 2011 and still works like the first day I don't have any CONS against the motherboard It has the OC Genius button that it allow you to OC the CPU up 4.2GHZ, so prevent to rookies or lazis to enter in the BIOS and edit the parameters In overall is a good motherboard and good brand
Summary: tons of ports! loads of USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports, even has firewire. also has internal USB 2.0, 3.0 and firewire headers. which it had more USB 2.0 headers. (only has one set of header pins, the front of my case requires 2, will have to find an expansion card.) really nice looking board, functions well. comes with USB 3.0 bracket for internal headers. the box said it supports 16 GB RAM, i emailed MSI and confirmed it does support of to 32 GB RAM.
Summary: So I didn't exactly by this motherboard from Amazon, I probably should have in hindsight. I bought my P67A-GD65 from the number 1 online computer parts store online. I won't name, names. The first board I got was DOA and when I sent it back they said it had bent pins and would not replace it. I wasn't too happy considering that I paid $170 it. Well I RMA'd it with MSI and I shipped it on a Friday and had it back the following Friday. It only spent 1 day in processing.
Summary: MSI is new to me, but I went with this board due to the solid feature set, the high quality components, and the fact that it's very upgradable and provides a great platform for a super fast Sandy Bridge gaming system. I've had no issues with it and have gotten good results from the OC Genie.
Summary: This board has so many features. It's great for me but could be a little overbearing for the typical computer user. It took me a short while to get my system running stable. But, after a few tweaks it runs great. One great feature for those that like to personalize their system is the ability to change the boot screen from the default MSI symbol to a custom symbol.
