This review is from: MSI 785GM-E65 AM3 AMD 785G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Nice layout (except SATA ports), and nice features for the price. Runs Win7-64 and Fedora Core 12-64 with no issues, and quite speedy for a budget build. Overall, board seems like higher quality than some others I've used in the same price range. Would have given 5 eggs were it not for...
Cons: The CPU heatsink retention bracket on the board only has one "catch" per side rather than the typical 3 for AMD CPU's. I used an Arctic cooler Freezer 7 Pro, which is quite large. Worked great until I shipped to a relative who was the ultimate owner of the box. The cooler popped off in shipping, taking the CPU chip with it. In the process, it broke 10-12 pins off the chip, so now the chip is an expensive paper-weight. Partially my fault for not removing the cooler during shipment, so I only deducted on egg. Thought about deducting 2, but I should have known better.
Other Thoughts: Great board for the price, but MSI, please give us back the more substantial CPU retention bracket.READ FULL REVIEW
