MSI X79A-GD65 (8D) LGA 2011 ATX Motherboard Review

PC Perspective
6 March 2012
  • Excerpt: My first Sandy Bridge-E motherboard review of 2012 showcases the talents of Intel's latest i7-3820 3.6GHz quad-core processor and MSI's X79A-GD65 (8D) ATX motherboard. The enhancements included in the LGA 2011 platform combined with MSI's unique optimizations to the board's overclocking, gaming, and power management capabilities should make for an exciting testing experience.

MSI X79A-GD65 (8D) LGA2011 Motherboard Review

[H] Enthusiast
17 February 2012
  • Summary: We had some problems with the X79A-GD65 from the very beginning. There were some issues with the BIOS that came with the board. It would simply not scale past 1.2GHz with the CPU ratio manually set. I also experienced a BSOD during the OS installation. After getting the OS setup I had issues concerning random BSOD’s. This happened to me seemingly at random and multiple times. This was resolved quickly by MSI in the form of a BIOS update.

MSI X79A-GD65 8D Review

19 December 2011
  • Conclusion: When testing the MSI X79A-GD65 (8D) we figured it would be a nice board, but didn’t have strong hopes for it to run with the much higher priced overclocking-based boards. We were (pleasantly) surprised. The GD65 surpassed the best OC boards in a few cases, which is saying a lot for a board that is much lower cost than the others in the comparison.
  • Pros: Excellent overclocking, Outstanding price/performance ratio, 3-Way SLI Capable, Performance mirroring the bigger players, Excellent UEFI, Winki 3 quick linux
  • Cons: No 4-Way SLI
