MSI FM2-A85XA-G65 Mainboard Review. Page 8
[04/20/2013 10:38 AM | Mainboards]
MSI mainboards look great, have very convenient layout and use only high-quality components. These boards are energy-efficient, fast and work well with default settings. However, there are quite a few things in their BIOS that could use some extra work and the boards do not keep the power-saving technologies up and running during overclocking. Everything we have just said is true for the main hero of our today’s review.
In our overclocking tests we reached the same CPU, integrated graphics core and memory clock rates with each mainboard, so we can expect them to deliver similar performance again.
Indeed, the mainboards are close to each other, yet the MSI FM2-A85XA-G65 is slower than average in such applications as 7-Zip, 3DMark11 and games. It is similar to the Gigabyte mainboard which has slowdowns in the same tests. The difference from the other mainboards isn’t large to be taken seriously, though.
