Following their success with their P55 series of boards, can MSI continue that brilliance with the P67s?

I am pretty disappointed by the results of this board. I expected it to be a great board at that price level. Well maybe next time MSI.

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....

I feel crushed I read in all these other sites about how awesome it was, but after seeing this I feel bitterly disappointed as well as being confused how it fared to badly here.

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.

Speaking personally rather than as an OC3D Reviewer, MSI were my manufacturer of last year. Their AM3 and 1156 boards were insanely good so trust me when I say I'm as disappointed as you all were.

We have to review as we find, and it was just a bit.. meh.

The point in auto clicking is it is meant to work out the best clock for your chip not just stick everything at the same clock

The board isnt 'bad' just that it isnt a great as it should have been.

Thanks for another great review.

Real dissapointment on the results, I had this at top of my list for my new system. Gues i'm gonna have to wait untill another midrange board gets a good (overclock)review.

Or untill MSI can make the 28 GHZ work

just to play devils advocate here, was you expecting greatness as standard on all msi boards based on last years findings?

its a lower end board so lesser results are to be expected vs some of the others. im happy you was honest and open about your findings but i got the feeling as i read it you was harsh on it because you expected more.

imo (and thats all it is) is i think people are wanting ocing to get too easy, it used to be about soldering bits on to pcb and fiddling with jumpers, then it all went into the bios and now we have fancy gui and 1 button ocing. pfft kids today dont know they are born xD

also, long live pci!! my xfi still kicks arse
