MSi 870-G45


$75.00 Released July, 2010

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Surprisingly decent integrated sound card (supports up to 8 channels). OC Genie makes overclocking really easy, even for the unexperienced. Runs efficiently and cooly even with multiple overclocked components.

The Cons:SATA port orientation makes them almost inaccessible in smaller cases. 2nd PCI-E 2.0 slot only operates at x4 in CrossFire. The stock BIOS is a little flaky/unstable (a bit more stable when updated, however).

The MSi 870-G45 is a chipset based motherboard with military class components that supports the 64bit AMD Phenom II X6/X4/X3/X2, Athlon II X4/X3/X2, and Sempron CPU. It has a HyperTransport 3.0 supporting speed up to 5200MT/s, and features the AMD 770 and SB710 chipsets.
