Default MSI DKA790GX Platinum Review

This board was a pleasure to work with. It was very stable and overclocks very easily with either the dip switches, via the BIOS, or using the AMD overclocking utility. The scores speak for themselves this board was built for gamers in mind. The 790GX and SB750 combination provide the power needed to run any system and MSI takes that combination and puts it in a very solid platform for your computing pleasure. The Circu-Pipe heatsink design keeps the DKA790GX Platinum at safe operating temperatures even while overclocked as far as I had it. Not once did it get too hot or did I need to add extra fans to cool it down. Having the memory on the outside slots also helped keep the air flowing well. I was kind of scratching my head as to why they place four of the SATA ports at 90 degree angles and not the fifth one. With large video cards this could pose a problem. This board is a very stable platform for any gamer or power user and with a great chipset you could not go wrong.
