This review is from: MSI P67A-GD55 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Installed parts put ram in 2 and 4 slots.Pressed power button and installed win 7.Good stable board B3 rev. Works exceptional with Coolermaster HAf 22. All CPU cores at 27 to 28 centigrade at idle with stock intel cooler for I2500k and Arctic Silver 5. And that's great.
G-Skill Ripjaw1600 mem works well. But memory slots are much to close to the CPU. Could not get Cooler Master Hyper 212+ to work without touching ram even on the #2 slot. Ripjaw ram is however tall.I do not want to cover my ram slots even if i could find smaller ram.I'll keep it for another build.I would be at a approx. 50% loss to return the cooler to Newegg.
I like this board.It has some inconsistantcies as all boards do.This UEFI in my opinion is no better than a normal bios.The mouse pointer is in the UEFI is inconsistant.could cause problems.Use the keyboard till'MSI get's a real fix.I'm really disappointed that I bought and paid extra for a board and cpu for overclocking and ended up not really having those capabilities with the stock cooler. It's a hassle to try and find a cooler that will work at this stage of the game.But with my XFX 6870 black edition GPU all my games are at there highest settings even at 1980.
