2 out of 5 eggs Great, After Some Effort 11/21/2012

This review is from: MSI P67A-GD80 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Features and design. Performance.

Cons: Does not support Ivy Bridge out of the box. If you get the 4 beeps, then reboot every 5 seconds, then this is your problem. Thankfully I had a Sandy Bridge CPU in another system I could rob for the BIOS update, then switched back in my shiny new i7-3770K. MSI's lazy and condescending tech support will RMA anything, though. Just don't expect to be treated with respect.

Now for the other bad part. The BIOS is impossible to update without Windows Vista or 7 installed on that machine. It cannot be done via the miserable BIOS settings, and Live Update as it is within the BIOS shell does not do it either. The support site doesn't offer the firmware blob for CLI installation, only .exe's for Windows. It's a complete mess all around.

You may want to bump the RAM voltage up a tad over 1.5. Also, if using all four slots, don't expect to get the speed support you were promised.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you peel all those annoying little plastic scratch stickers on all the heatsinks. I do this for everything, but some people may overlook that and burn them up!

HP w2207h Black 22
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Portrait mode tilt, excellent stand. Great resolution for 1 second.

Cons: HP will not admit it, but an early run of these are defective. LOTS of them. Random sleeping to right away sleeping, never waking up - unbelievably poor electrical design.
