We start another week here at ThinkComputers and we have an awesome review! We have another P67 board on our test bench, this time it is the MSI P67A-GD80 (B3). It has a ton of features and I would definitely recommend it for your next Sandy Bridge setup!

“Intel’s Sandy Bridge launch was a huge success and a great way to start 2011. Within a few weeks though a chipset error was found on every single P67 motherboard. The error could have degraded SATA 3Gbps performance over time, putting you at risk of data loss and even total drive failures. Users may have never experienced this issue but it needed to be fixed.
