MSI P67rB3 Big Bang Marshal Review

PC Mark Vantage

Futuremark's excellent PC Mark benchmarking suite, here in 64-bit guise, tests every aspect of your system to ensure that all of your daily tasks can be performed as efficiently as possible. For the purposes of brevity although we run every test we don't graph them all. The Big Bang Marshal definitely wont be found wanting no matter what you decide to throw at it, with great scores in both stock and overclocked tests.

 

CineBench

Lastly before we move to the 3D Mark testing, Maxon's CineBench R11.5. Rendering always pushes a processor to its limit and it's ably testing by one of the industry standards. At stock it's pretty middling to be honest, not quite as good here as our reference board. Once overclocked though we get the highest CPU score we've seen with our Core i5-2500K.

Great review Bryan and a stunning motherboard arguably MSI's finest aesthetically at least. Only issue i have with the thing is the bloody size i realize its getting more popular but there still isn't that many cases able to accommodate it. One thing that did confuse me though Bryan is you mentioned using a Nvidia 590 and AMD 6990 together in Lucid. I might be wrong but to the best of my knowledge Hydra Lucid does not support Lucid X Mode with dual GPU cards.Quote

Excellent review as always.

Anyway that's an amazing board, one thing with the technical specs, it says it can't run 3 way SLI, so if you want to fill up all the slots you're pretty much stuck with AMD?Quote
