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

 

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

Excellent Motherboard

 

I bought 3 (only 1 from Newegg) of the 890GXM-G65's almost 2 years ago and have not had a single issue with any of them. One of the 3 MBs didn't recognize the AMD Phenom X6 1055Ts, but after a quick bios flash everything was fine

Decent hardware, awful software

 

A motherboard is only as good as its weakest component. This is my eighth build so far and I have never struggled with documentation directly contradicting how hardware/software works. Arguably the most confusing component I have tangled with before.

This board puts a lot of ports on a small form factor ; MSI's proprietary BIOS/driver update utility has so far been the saving grace for otherwise mid-1990s update requirements

The documentation has no reference on how to flash the BIOS for Windows Vista or 7. The DOS utility for flashing the BIOS requires a series of switches not mentioned or explained in the documentation ; The SATA ports are done "stacked" on top of one...
