MSI Z68A-GD80-G3 (Intel Z68) Motherboard Review

The MSI Click Bios II really is a stand out software implementation, offering a new level of user interaction and intuitive design. There are six clearly labelled sections, three on either side, to help navigate the user to the correct area. If you have a touch screen panel then you can interact not only with the mouse, but with your hands.

Along the top right is the boot priority section. The first icon on the left will be the first boot device, lowering in priority as it moves to the right. These icons can be dragged in position to suit individual demands. This is one of the best implementations we have seen.

Overclocking the board is extremely easy, and we hit 5ghz with the Core i5 2500k, by increasing the core voltage and a few other voltage settings.

Many users don’t want to mess with bios settings, no matter how straightforward they are, so MSI have a simple means to get a 100% stable overclock. At the bottom of the motherboard is an O.C. Genie button (see image above). Turn the system off, push it in. Reboot.

By simply pressing a physical button on the board, the system gives a healthy overclock of 900 mhz. Simple as that. System validation can be seen over here. This is how we will test the system today, as we know not everyone is a bios guru.
