Default MSI X79A-GD65 (8D) Review @ OCC

It seems my 3960X is limited to just under 4.8Ghz and the X79A-GD65 was able to get me there without too much work. Just the same standard for the Sandy Bridge platform: bump the multiplier, tweak the bclock, set the volts, and go! Simple! If that little bit of work is just too much to tweak, there is MSI's fully functional OC Genie II One-touch overclocking tool. On an Intel platform, the OC Genie II is almost too easy to use and is the easiest one-step process to get an overclock out of the system. I found with the headroom available on the 3960X that the OC Genie II was a little conservative when the Turbo-Boosted speeds of the Core i7 3960X are 3.9Ghz. The OC Genie II delivered a solid 4.0GHz overclock, and just like every Intel MSI board I have tried over the past four years has proven perfectly stable under load. It really is a feather in MSI's cap that this tool has been so good for so long.
