Up Close with the MSI P67A-GD65 Motherboard


Clearance is good around the CPU socket.

When it comes time to overclocking the Intel Sandy Bridge processor, you'll be thankful you read this line and bought one of the unlocked Intel K-series chips. An unlocked socket 1155 processor coupled with MSI OC Genie II will enable automatic overclocking at the push of a button.


The CMOS reset button is located on the rear I/O. Here are the power/reset buttons and the OC Genie II automatic overclocking button. The board also features dual BIOS's in case something goes wrong during a flash.

Just two USB 3.0 ports on the MSI P67A-GD65 motherboard's rear I/O. Good for now, but down the road you'll be thankful the board ships with a bracket offering two more USB 3.0 ports.

While USB 2.0's 480Mb/s maximum bandwidth was enough for many years, USB 3.0 (above in blue) expands the bandwidth to a whopping 4.8Gb/s (4800Mb/s) which is more appropriate for today's large mass storage devices. Much of this speed improvement is due to USB 3.0 being a bi-directional bus, meaning it can transfer information to a device and to a host computer simultaneously.
