    Default MSI X79A-GD65 8D Motherboard

    With their MSI X79A-GC65 8D, MSI hopes to deliver a board which exceeds anything else in the mainstream market and we will be looking closely at this motherboard to see if we think this board lives up to the lofty goals that MSI has set.

    nice review Kip. i would be interested to see the ssd performance from what i've seen the x79 is not to great with ssd performance. one other thing i would like msi to quit doing is the friggin 90 degree sata cables THEY SUCK I have them and I hate them. but other than that I must say my msi board does kick the hell out of most everyone else. OH yeah ide compatibility mode would be a welcome addition so i dont have to use my asus board to run hdderase

    Good review Kip. I agree with Bill Gates on the 90 degree cables but not a deal breaker. Isn't it time for something different than Military Class(Outdated). Bone the less not bad.

    Thanks guys

    We have a three-way ASUS X79 review coming up shortly. Wont be any military stuff on these three boards at least.

    I use G-parted to internal erase my SSDs and that works great on these X79 boards. Just another tool when you cant go IDE.

    We have 4 more of the new boards waiting in line; just finishing up the images on the UD5 and will mount it tomorrow. It looks like a nice rig and will be fun playing around with it I am sure.

    Good review Kip! By the time the rest of the X79 reviews have been published, we should be starting to receive Z77 boards.

    Good reveiw,..........will wait to see how these boards stack up to all of the others quality wise. It does have a nice feature set, but MSI boards have bitten me in the past, so I'm shy about that brand.
