MSI P67A-GD65 Review

AIDA64

Memory Benchmarks

At stock the GD65 makes use of the performance of the Kingston very well. Although the write speed is a little low generally everything is good and much higher than the reference Intel board.

Overclocked is a different matter though as the memory, even at 2133MHz and with our 4.7 GHz CPU doesn't seem to benefit much from the overclock. Certainly nowhere near as well as the reference Intel or the Gigabyte UD7.

CPU Benchmarks

We find similar things with the CPU benchmarking suite of AIDA64. The GD65 performs very well at stock but the overclocked result doesn't really thrill us quite as we'd hoped. Although the zLib result is far and away the best we've seen rocking 267MB/s.

I am pretty disappointed by the results of this board. I expected it to be a great board at that price level. Well maybe next time MSI.Quote

So perhaps the truly brilliant OC Genie will be the solution to the poor stock performance?

I feel crushed I read in all these other sites about how awesome it was, but after seeing this I feel bitterly disappointed as well as being confused how it fared to badly here.

EDIT: Quite a few people seem to get 4.2GHz clock, so I guess MSI is being extremely conservative, in case someone got a half completed chip or something.Quote
