MSI P67A-GD65 Intel P67 Motherboard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: The MSI P67A-GD65 motherboard brings forth a lot for computer enthusiasts to get excited about, not the least of which are dual PCI Express x16 videocard slots, (4) USB 3.0 ports, (6) SATA 6GB/s ports and specialized tools for seasoned overclockers. For example, if you're one to break out a digital multimeter while overclocking there are handy voltage read points next to the boards' DDR3 memory slots.

MSI leave plenty of space around the CPU socket for big and bulky high performance heatsinks.


LGA1155 CPU socket


Look at all that wonderful space for heatsinks around the CPU socket!

MSI's P67A-GD65 motherboard has a power VRM design built around special solid state High-C capacitors (pictured above). These Tantalum capacitors take up much less room than the solid state aluminum variety and are said to have greater life spans. The CPU VRM MOSFETs are hidden behind two small heatpipe connected passive heatsinks which surround one side of the Intel LGA1155 CPU socket.

There are two NCE D720200F1 USB 3.0 controllers on the MSI P67A-GD65 motherboard which supply the board with four USB 3.0 ports in totall. Two USB 3.0 ports are located at the rear I/O and two are available via the supplied USB 3.0 bracket off a motherboard header.

A USB 3.0 port offers bandwidth up to a whopping 4.8Gb/s, more than enough for today's large mass storage devices.


USB 3.0 bracket.
