MSI 890GXM-G65 AM3 AMD 890GX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent mATX motherboard for the money 03/19/2011

This review is from: MSI 890GXM-G65 AM3 AMD 890GX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: This is an excellent board for the money. Hexacore support, OCing headroom, SATA III, USB 3.0, two PCI-E x8/x8 slots for multi-GPU setups, and 4 DDR3 DIMM slots makes for a great enthusiast board in a small package.

I've been running my board for months and it's in excellent working condition still. It's been running my 1055t stable at 3.4 GHz under the stock cooler.

Cons: 4+1 power phase, but that's to be expected with a mATX motherboard.

Other Thoughts: Something to be noted is that while this board supports 125W TDP CPUs, the 4+1 power phase severely limits the OCing headroom. This means with the Phenom II x6 (the only PIIs with a 125W TDP rating), you need to keep the VCore under 1.4V or else the MOSFETs will blow. It's a problem resulting from running too much current from overstressed, undercooled MOSFETs.

This however is not a problem with PII x2s and PII x4s. So long as you watch your VCore, you should be fine. I've been running my x6 at 1.33V for months and have had absolutely no issues.

SilverStone SUGO SG02-BF Black ABS / SECC Steel MicroATX Desktop Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Shuttle Form Factor
-Relatively cheap
-Fits GTX 260
-Keeps Q9550 and GTX 260 in acceptable temperatures
-Well built for money

Cons: -Cluttered, even with modular PSU
-Managed to cut myself on a sharp edge somewhere
-Stock fan noisy

Other Thoughts: Keeps my OCed Q9550 (3.0 GHz) and GTX 260 (680Core/2400Mem) @ 65C and 75C peak, respectively. Very excellent case for the money, would highly recommend to someone looking for a Shuttle Form Factor case. My only complaint is that it's hard to mount a 3.5" card reader into this case, but after some effort it went in securely. A bit of cable clutter even with a modular PSU, but that's to be expected from a small case.

Q9550 @ 3.0 GHz, 2x2GB G.Skill DDR2-800 @ 1066 MHz, GTX 260 216SP @ 680Core/2400Mem, Creative X-Fi Fatal1ty Titanium, WD 1TB Caviar Black, Asus Wireless PCI Card

ASUS VK246H Black 24

Pros: -

Cons: -

Other Thoughts: yguittard, please read the product info carefully before giving it low reviews. Nowhere does it state that the monitor has a microphone. Would you also like to give it a low rating for not being a 30" monitor as well?

Please think before you give negative reviews again.
