MSI X79A-GD65 (8D) Motherboard

There is a review of the MSI X79A-GD65 (8D) motherboard posted at Overclockers Club today that is certainly work checking out.

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.
