With USB3 and SATA3, this outstanding microATX motherboard combines a great range of features and plenty of flexible options for overclocking....

A broad range of features on a compact microATX board – but you’ll pay for it...

Sometimes conclusions come easily. A product has a certain market, or has one particular feature that springs to mind, and the words just flow. Other times I can sit for a while mulling over what to say.Today is one such time. But not for a moment...

The MSI 890GXM-G65 is an interesting board in that it has the features to be among the best in the business with the support for both USB 3.0 and SATA 6Gbps and Active Phase Switching in both Linux as well as Windows. The bundle is rather lackluster...

The slightly upgraded integrated GPU, the USB 3 ports and SATA 6Gbps support are the most significant differences of the MSI 890GXM-G65 over the previous . However, losing the ability to unlock disabled CPU cores (which the 785G range has, but we were...

The MSI 890GXM-E65 board is on sale for about €109,97 while ASRock 890GX Extreme 3 will set you back €99,44. If you want to spare some bucks you can go for the ASRock 880G Extreme 3 board with a 880G Chipset, which clocks 140MHz slower at 560MHz but has...

While our testing of the MSI 890GXM-G65 is not yet complete, so far we are enjoying this motherboard and it is working well with Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. This microATX motherboard sports AMD's high-end 890GX + SB850 Chipset with USB 3.0, Serial ATA 6GB/s,...

It’s not very often that we come across a product that has quite the versatility of the 890GXM-G65. MSI has created a motherboard that fills two separate niches, the HTPC market and the portable gaming rig market. The SATA 6Gbps and USB 3.0 ports...

Groundbreaking? No. Unprecedented? Not even close. A nice increase in performance all the while pushing prices down? Definitely. Things can get a bit crowded on a m-ATX motherboard with full size video cards. AMD is milking the Athlon...

The AMD 890GX chipset was released just over a month ago and since that time we here at OCC have managed to get our hands on the majority of these newly released boards, with the exception of just a few. So, to close that gap, the good folks over at...

The MSI 890GXM-G65 was one of the first motherboard to market using the 890GX chipset. And a lot of times when a motherboard is first to release something to market it is usually not the best and often have to go through a lot of trials. This is not...

MSI released a definitely interesting motherboard. Consider it, if you have no prejudice towards microATX form factor, and if you're going to use as few expansion cards as possible. With this motherboard you can build a variety of PCs, including...

No award? Not for the board or the chipset or the this particular model? First of all, in contrary to some other hardware reviewing websites, we prefer to only hand out awards when a product really stands out against the competition. And for that to...

sSince we’re looking at a new chipset for the first time, and a new motherboard, I’ll split the conclusion up:The 890GX ChipsetTry as they might, AMD is not going to convince me that this chipset is a replacement for the 790GX. The model...

The 890GXM-G65 marks the first motherboard from MSI using AMD's new 890GX model chipset, codenamed RS880D. While the chipset shares the same HD4200-series RV620 integrated graphics as last year's 785G motherboards, the core operating frequency...

We think it’s a little humorous that all three motherboards provide HDMI display output, but not DisplayPort, since this AMD-backed interface is found on so many Intel-based motherboards. Yet, this particular board will likely...

Final Words & Conclusion The AMD 890GX chipset is an interesting new addition to their current line of available AMD chipsets. When looking at overall performance in both the default baseline and overclocking you will however not see any difference...

International Review By Hartware.net on 75

Das MSI 890GXM-G65 überzeugt mit einem fairen Preis. Die Ausstattung kann sich sehen lassen, praktisch alle aktuellen Schnittstellen sind vorhanden. Ob USB 3.0, eSATA mit bis zu 6 Gbit/s oder HDMI, man muss auf nichts verzichten. Bedingt durch das...

MSI har med deres 890GXM-G65 formået at pakke en fuldblods Leon platform ned i m-ATX størrelse. Bundkortets kasse indeholder meget lidt tilbehør, men manglen på en manual vil ikke være det store problem for erfarende PC byggere,...

Das MSI 890GXM-G65 ist ein wirklich gutes Mainboard. Die Hardware-Ausstattung kann sich sehen lassen und macht sowohl für private als auch für gewerbliche Kunden Sinn. Mit dieser Platine gelingt der Bau eines leistungsstarken und kompakten...
