Recently we took a look at an offering from MSI of a mATX motherboard that utilises all the latest technology as well as having on-board graphics. It was nearly all things to all men and we were very impressed. Today we're looking at the top of the MSI 890 model range, the GD70. Very similar to the G65, nonetheless this is more aimed at those who want a full-sized and fully featured board. It certainly isn't a board that wants for lastability, as with Hi-c CAP with Tantalum cores used around the CPU socket. Ferrite core "Icy" chokes and more normal Aluminium core solid CAPs there definitely shouldn't be any heat or reliability issues in long-term usage. Hopefully all this pukka power circuitry will also ensure lots of stability and better overclocking.
