Quoted from MSI FM2-A85XA-G65 Reviews:Check out these quotes from MSI FM2-A85XA-G65 reviews & previews
"Overall, I can honestly say that this board has given me mixed feelings, as I simply love the design of it and the feature list is certainly plentiful with the amount of SATA III ports, and the performance we saw with the SATA III and USB 3.0 ports alone. I don’t feel that this board warrants a performance based award or anything focussed on overclocking, but sticking to the board overall, I do feel that it’s quite innovative, especially with the style factor, and therefore it does warrant receiving our Innovation Award."
"As for the FM2-A85XA-G65, since its performance was solid and the price is low for such a full featured board, we have to give it our “Recommended Hardware: Solid Performance” award. This lets you know that if you are in the market for a product this type, you won’t be disappointed."
"The MSI FM2-A85XA-G65 is a solid board with a host of overclocking options at your fingertips. While the base overclock (using OC Genie II) wasn’t as aggressive as I’d have liked, the standard overclock applied to other boards worked perfectly well in this case."
"The FM2-A85XA-G65 does its job well, I found no real faults with it. The problem is that there are lots of other A85 motherboards on the market now that can do the same things as the G65 in the same price range. So really it boils down personal preference and color scheme. If you are looking for a excellent high-performance FM2 motherboard, the MSI G65 will do the job nicely."
"The MSI FM2-A85XA-G65 is simpler than the other three Socket FM2 mainboards we’ve tested recently, so it is also the least expensive of them. The ASRock board costs a little more, next comes Gigabyte, and ASUS is the most expensive one. We guess that we could also split them into two groups: there are good and there are not so good products and the former are substantially more expensive. This categorization isn’t general because ASUS may be criticized for its high power consumption whereas MSI, for example, is good in this respect. But in general, if you need a high-quality problem-free Socket FM2 mainboard then you best bet would most likely be the product from ASUS or, even better, from Gigabyte. The mainboards from ASRock and MSI may be a good alternative only if you are ready to put up with the challenges they pose for the sake of their lower price."
