Best mainstream Sandy Bridge motherboard?

Good: Great stock performance, Easy overclocking, Decent features
Bad: Nothing
Price: AED 750
* The price is the Suggested Retail Price at the time of review. Please call a retailer to confirm the latest price for this product.

Let’s move on to the benchmarks then. The MSI P67A-GD55 has an Intel Core i7-2600K along with 4GB of Kingmax DDR3-2200 ram stuck on. Furthermore there’s a Zotac GTX 580 AMP! Edition along with a Kingston V-Series 64GB SSD with Windows 7 Ultimate; all of which is powered by a 1200W Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold PSU. I have added our resident testbed motherboard, the Gigabyte P67A-UD7 along with the MSI P67A-GD65 for comparisons.

As you can see that the P67A-GD55 performs on par or better than the GD65 and even manages to hold its own against the Gigabyte motherboard which costs twice as much ($320).

From auditing to editing, I now test and analyze the latest gadgets and games instead of the latest financial statements. Both jobs are equally intense and rewarding. When I'm not burning up hardware in the name of science, you'll find me nuking in DOTA 2 or engineering in TF2.

    Thanks for the review, man. I’ve been looking for a replacement for a crappy Gigabyte P67A-UD3-B3 motherboard. This one looks like it will perform quite a bit better! :)
