MSI 890GXM-G65 Motherboard


, all while packaged in a small Micro-ATX shell

The onboard Radeon 4290 means this board has a plethora of video connection possibilities right out of the box. It won't be maxing out Crysis any time soon, but should work for some light gaming. With the small form factor and the various video...

MSI 890GXM-G65 Review


The AMD 890GX chipset was released just over a month ago and since that time we here at OCC have managed to get our hands on the majority of these newly released boards, with the exception of just a few. So, to close that gap, the good folks over at...

MSI 890GXM-G65 Motherboard Review


The MSI 890GXM-G65 is an interesting board in that it has the features to be among the best in the business with the support for both USB 3.0 and SATA 6Gbps. The bundle is rather lackluster as I would like to have seen at least two SATA Data cables,...

MSI 890GXM-G65 review


MSI has crammed plenty of features on to this AM3 microATX motherboard, including USB3 and a full complement of five SATA III ports. The BIOS supports the latest hexacore AMD Phenom II processors as well as providing a full complement of overclocking...

With USB3 and SATA3, this outstanding microATX motherboard combines a great range of features and plenty of flexible options for overclocking.

Examining chipset performance, Hybrid CrossFire included.

Anyway, let's see whether the today's motherboard, MSI 890GXM-G65, can compete with full-size products in terms of functionality.

MSI 890GXM-G65 micro-ATX Motherboard Review


gave us far more in terms of a maximum HyperTransport bus speed. This is mostly because the MSI lacks lower CPU-NB multipliers to cope with a very high HTT. The lowest multiplier offered is 8x, meaning that the CPU-NB (the memory controller of the CPU)...

MSI 890GXM-G65


I shopped extensively for a motherboard and found this to be the only one that was just right. However, I had a full size case and the microATX looks a little silly in it.

Great board. Never had a problem with it. I was an ASUS guy forever, but after going through three of their boards in three years, I gave MSI a try. Coundn't be happier

Decent Gaming Board


I wish we could start seeing internal usb 3.0 connections. Given that this is (or was) and industry standard I'm ok with re-wiring the front usb 3.0 port through the back.

I went with this motherboard for my first gaming pc build. I am thus far happy with it. The onboard graphics are enough to impress you for basic computing (word processing, internet browsing, etc.) but don't expect high performance once you start any...

Excellent Platform for a Micro build


This board has been in service for the entire 18 months since I bought it. MSI has been very pro-active about maintaining the BIOS to keep up with changing environment. Excellent Micro build platform with rarely seen dual PCIe x16 slots AND 4 DIMM...

Beautiful layout, rare Dual PCIe x16 uATX board, solid performance, super reliable, solid capacitors, beautiful black PCB, nice heat sinks on the critical components, excellent BIOS control for the tweakers, BIOS backup

2 Dual slot video cards make the only PCI slot and the PCI 1x slot unusable. It is a uATX board after all. If you want it all, buy an ATX and a big tower

Second time around_OK


Newegg is great to handle DOA's without pain. Firest MOBO had a bad memory slot. Would not post. Second one is a winner all the way

If one is coming down the pike I don't see it
