Its performance in our tests was fair, with an Overall score of 171.

MSI Media Live Diva TrustedReviews 6/2009 - Using the AMD Maui design, MSI's Media Live Diva 5.1 is a home theatre PC motherboard unlike any other. Built around the M780G chipset, it is the inclusion of a second audio chip, the D2Audio DAE-3 usually found in HDTVs that marks its unconventional status. Review details: Single Test. One motherboard was reviewed and rated on features and layout, performance, and value.

MSI 790GX-G65 TrustedReviews 5/2009 - New model numbering codes are the first noticeable improvement in MSI's 790GX-G65 motherboard, making identification far simpler, though still not entirely coherent.

MSI Big Bang Fuzion: Pulling The Covers Off Of Lucid's Hydra Tech : It Began With A Bang! Tom's Hardware 1/2010 - I’ve never designed, marketed, and then tried to sell my own product before, but I’d like to imagine that if I did, I’d start by considering the number of potential customers who’d line up to pay me for what I was offering. Perhaps that’s why I’m so amazed to see a technology I first saw in action more than a year ago ... productized in MSI’s Big Bang Fuzion motherboard.

MSI P55 GD65 Bit Tech 9/2009 - MSI's GD65 might not be the all feature encompassing GD80, but this performance P55 board still has the right mix of sexy looks and features to get all but the most hardcore overclocker really engaged. It still manages to carve a niche of hardware and design, yet remains distinct from its cheaper offerings unlike Gigabyte and Asus whose design is uniform from top to bottom. Review details: Single Test. One motherboard was reviewed and rated on features, performance and value.

MSI 790GX-G65 Computer Shopper 7/2009 - MSI's 790GX-G65 is the first AM3 motherboard to pass through Computer Shopper's reviews. The big change is support for DDR3 memory, though while it runs faster, its higher latencies diminish this advantage.

MSI 790GX-G65 PC Pro 4/2009 - Another arrival in the AM3 motherboard field with support for AMD's Phenom II is MSI's 790GX-G65 with DDR3 at up to 1,600MHz. Switches for overclocking, onboard power, reset and Clear CMOS are finishing touches on this well-specced board.

MSI X48 Platinum TrustedReviews 12/2007 - We've only just reviewed the MSI X38 Diamond but it's already in danger of being replaced by the X48 Platinum. That sounds utterly ridiculous so what the heck's going on? The problem stems from Intel's roadmaps which rely on a steady release of products so we get 65nm Core 2 processors on a 1,066MHz front side bus, followed by 65nm on a 1,333MHz front side bus, then 45nm on 1,333MHz and next year the 45nm Penryn will move to a 1,600MHz front side bus.

MSI G965MDH Computer Shopper 6/2007 - Working with any Intel LGA775 processor, and with GMA X3000 graphics on board, the MSI MSI's G95MDH could be a solid choice of motherboard if you're not worried about games and don't want an external sound card.
