MSI P67A-GD65 Motherboard Review
PC Mark Vantage and CineBench

PC Mark Vantage
The short answer seems to be yes. It's so frustrating that even though the GD65 doesn't overclock as well, it's not even very good at stock. Although the overclock helps it only just about reaches the levels of the i5-2500K at stock on the Intel reference board.
It's not very surprising to see that CineBench suffers equally with the sluggish performance of the MSI GD65. Rendering is so dependant upon every ounce of processing power that even the slightest lapse has heavy consequences and so it proves.

So perhaps the truly brilliant OC Genie will be the solution to the poor stock performance?
If it works as good as it does on my P55-GD65 then weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
I finally thought MSI was going good in the mobo section yet this is pretty disappointing to me
EDIT i must be fair i also hear people using it and its perfectly fine,
i guess my luck comes in again....Quote
EDIT: Quite a few people seem to get 4.2GHz clock, so I guess MSI is being extremely conservative, in case someone got a half completed chip or something.Quote
