MSI P67A-GD65 Intel Socket 1155 Motherboard Performance Review

The MSI P67A-GD65 is the next motherboard to come across the Legit Reviews Intel Sandy Bridge test bench. Our first article featured the ASUS P8P67 Deluxe as well as the ASUS P8P67. Both of these boards did a bang up job and set the bar high. This will give the MSI P67A-GD65 P67 based motherboard something to strive for. Will the MSI P67A-GD65 meet that challenge or will it crash and burn? Read on to find out!

Whether you are an experienced overclocker or just getting into overclocking, the MSI P67A-GD65 should satisfy your urges for speed. Starting out with the OC Genie, which will overclock your system in only one second, we had a system that was overclocked to 4.2GHz, and was rock solid. Nothing like a little free performance with zero work. When I first started overclocking manually I was running an older version of the BIOS. With this version I was able to hit the same overclock with the Intel Core I5 2500K as we were able to previously in the ASUS P8P67 Deluxe article. Our previous best was 4824MHz on both of the ASUS boards that we have tested. Since then a new feature has been added within the BIOS for both the ASUS boards as well as for the MSI P67A-GD65. You can now have the Internal PLL Voltage either enabled or disabled. Once we enabled it within the MSI P67A-GD65 BIOS, things started to get just a little more interesting.
