Experience: 4 Months


One of the only AM3+ Micro ATX boards with two PCIe 2.0 slots for Xfire. Fairly priced. Some simplistic overclocking features
None at the moment
GrizzlyPC.com endorses this product.

Experience: 90 Days


very good build, easy bios controls and update  function. LOVE the standard sata III 6 GBS and usb 3.0 options at a reasonable price, haven't tried crossfire yet but very easy stable overclocks.
no room for wider video cards like direct cu II but with this being an mATX only a minor complaint. Also the positioning of the front panel power, led connectors is difficult in some cases to work with because it is not marked on the mobo and you have ot use the manual to connect the jumpers. also one sata connection is placed facing up and would be impossible to use if useing a crossfire configuration. solid board great for a simple to mid build.
Extremely versatile application, I have this installed in my htpc with a gtx 580 and an 1100t stable at over 3.8 ghz with stock cooling.

Experience: 5 Days


It have crossfire, support 6 core cpu, 4 DIMM, mATX and good placement.
Dual Channel with Kingston 1600 memory not working, trying to repair that with MSI support online
Bought this since Bulldozer is not getting out, AM3+ mobo are not crossfire 8x/8x and there is no 990FX mATX mobo. Since the x4 925 was only 70$ and memory price dropped I bought everything for a new machine and decided to use this mobo since there's not a lot of crossfire mATX board for AM3 socket. Good board but dual channel is not working (4GB out of 8 detected).

Experience: 60 Days


loaded with features for a mATX, 6gb/s SATA, USB 3.0, crossfireX
none really, there are cheaper AM3 boards but this one I feel is a good value if on sale and after MIR
I bought this board because I wanted to build a mATX system. I knew my choices is already reduced due to the smaller form factor but this board had all the features I wanted and some extras such USB 3.0 and 8x/8x Crossfire which I don't currently use but may need in the future. I decided for this mobo over the ASUS Maximums Gene III because it is cheaper, especially when you factor in the value of an (unlockable) AMD CPU. I don't use the integrated graphics for this chipset so I cannot comment on that.

Experience: 14 Days


Exactly as presented. Good documentation, well packaged, great arrangement of headers and ports.
Nothing about this board has bothered me yet.
The 890GXM-G65 went in as expected, and has performed well right out of the box. I haven't updated BIOS or drivers and no issues.

My first go with an AMD system (Phenom II x6 1055t).

It just works. Strong recommendation - two thumbs up.

Experience: 1 Weeks


Probably the best micro ATX board on the market
AMD 6 core ready out of the box
Bios a bit confusing (user's manual not great)
A great micro ATX board and works with AMD's 6 core processor out of the box. CrossfireX capable and lots of memory slots.

Experience: 10 Days


Well constructed, onboard video memory, HDMI port onboard
I've always liked MSI boards and this one does not disappoint. I was looking for a 890-based board and there were not too many around but this one works just fine for my needs. I also like the fact that it has onboard HDMI port. A great value all around.

Experience: 30 Days


Newest, fastest AMD chipset, nice slot layout, 4 onboard USB headers.
None so far
This is the best AMD board I've bought in a while. I like the layout and placement of components, heatsinks and features. It also seems to be more stable as a HTPC platform then the 785G boards I used previously.

Comment: The MSI 890GXM-G65 is a very impressive motherboard that, even with its small size, managed to perform neck and neck with the enthusiast grade Asus M4A79T motherboard.
