MSI 790GX-G65 ATX Motherboard ReviewMon, Apr 13, 2009 - 12:00 AM
I originally tested this motherboard using liquid nitrogen but ran into a myriad of problems. AMD’s Phenom II gained a lot of acclaim due to its ability to run at -196 Celsius and colder. However, not all AM2+ and AM3 motherboards are capable of operating at these temperatures. I’m not certain if a BIOS fix will work but this board locks up at -137 Celsius, every single time. So, instead of wasting liquid nitrogen I swapped over to my cascade and found the board to be incredibly stable under the cascade.
Please disregard the cascade, it is currently undergoing tuning and is unfinished.

Editor’s Note: This is the same exact motherboard that Chris used to win second place in the Toms Hardware AMD Virtual Overclocking Contest! This is a great overclocking board as you can tell!
