Intel’s Sandy Bridge launch was a huge success and a great way to start 2011. Within a few weeks though a chipset error was found on every single P67 motherboard. The error could have degraded SATA 3Gbps performance over time, putting you at risk of data loss and even total drive failures. Users may have never experienced this issue but it needed to be fixed. Intel was quick to rectify this situation with B3 stepping silicon. All new P67 motherboards with the new fix will be called “B3”. Today we will be taking a look at a new gaming / enthusiast motherboard from MSI with this B3 fix. The motherboard is the P67A-GD80 (B3) and features a 12-Phase DrMOS Digital VRM, MSI’s Military Class II components, the new ClickBIOS and 10 USB 3.0 ports.
Today we get the chance to check out a full featured motherboard without all of the bloat. The MSI 890FXA-GD65 motherboard with AMD’s 890FX chipset offers a whopping 10 USB ports, 2 of which are USB 3.0. It also includes support for SATA 6GB/s and is AM3+ ready, for those looking to buy the processors coming out later this year. This affordable motherboard is easy to overclock with the provided software and will surely give you your money’s worth. Read on further to get the fully detailed review.
