MSI GK-601 Backlit Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

We all know MSI produces some top of the line motherboards and GPUs on the market today. I personally own 2x MSI 660 TI Power Editions as well as an MSI Z77 M-Power motherboard. Today we will be looking at something new from MSI, the GK-601 Back-lit Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. This is also something new to me since I've never used a mechanical keyboard before. This should prove to be a lot of fun. The MSI GK-601 aesthetically matches the MSI M-Power series Z77, the newly released Z87 motherboards and their Lightning series GPUs. With its yellow highlights and yellow back-lit keys you're sure to have a winning combo. The GK-601 offers 128KB on board memory so there is no worry about losing the macros you have created. With five profiles and ten possible macros per profile we get a grand total of 50 dedicated macro keys. Having a braided cord on a keyboard was also a new experience for me, but I can say after seeing this, it's pure genius in my book. The MSI GK-601 comes with dedicated multimedia keys for controlling all your media needs; plus it also comes with dedicated keys for switching between all five profiles. The keyboard I'm using now has been the best keyboard I've ever owned so it's going to be hard to beat it. Let's see if MSI is up to the challenge. Before we get into this review here is a video and a word about MSI!

MSI Intel 8 Series OC

MSI OC on Z87, H87, B85 and H81 Chipsets Z87 the only true Overclocking platform MSI, a leading Motherboard and Graphics Card manufacturer has updated the BIOS for its H87, B85 and H81 based motherboards with Intel’s latest Microcode update. Since the Initial release of this BIOS, it has allowed CPU overclocking on all MSI motherboards with a H87, B85 or H81 chipsets. MSI, as a technology leader had this feature exposed since the initial release of each of the more than 30 models that were announced back in June, such as the H87-G41 PC Mate and the B85-G43. At this time, it was apparant that, in order to offer the highest stability and compatibility, it was not in the interest of our community to announce a “feature” that we knew would be removed after a microcode update. Intel has since then updated the microcode for their 8 series chipsets and we advise everyone to always use the latest BIOS for their motherboard as this allows them to enjoy the highest level of stability and compatibility. It is with great pain that we see other motherboard manufacturers announce this a feature for short-term marketing gain, neglecting to mention that users would use this function in the near future. We want to urge the PC community to only chose Z87 based motherboards if they want to enjoy the benefits of overclocking since Z87 based motherboards, like the Z87 MPOWER are guaranteed to provide a great overclocking exprience now and in the future, regardless of the use ...

MSI Z87A-GD65 Gaming Motherboard Review

Haswell has been on store shelves for a little over two weeks now, and we have seen an abundance of motherboard releases. Choosing the right one for your needs is the challenge.

MSI Z87 MPower Motherboard Review

The introduction of Intel's new "Haswell" line of processors also brought its new 8 series chipset. The introduction of Haswell and its socket and chipset change came as no surprise. We have seen this from Intel with its "Tick Tock" development strategy, including their change to its power delivery management. It makes sense and was crucial for Intel to make these changes. Today, we have a chance to look at one of MSI's flagship motherboards for the new Z87 architecture: the MSI Z87 MPower. MSI's previous products in the Z87 chipset MPower line were typically top performers, and include excellent overclocking and features. Today, as we move forward, we are going to see just how the MSI Z87 MPower measures up to that previous reputation while using the new Haswell 4770k. Before we move forward, let's talk a little about MSI.

AMD A10-6700 & MSI FM2-A85XMA-E35 Motherboard Review

The new AMD Richland processors were released just over a week ago. AMD first launched its A-series processors just over 2 years ago as the Fusion technology with the "Llano" series. During its first launch and introduction to this APU series chip, no one was really sure how well this platform was going to perform. Over the course of a few years, we have seen AMD improve on its one of a kind platform with its first revision "Trinity" and we now have the next release "Richland." During its first revision, Trinity, we saw a change in socket from FM1 to FM2 along with a revision to its chipset. However, with Richland, we are glad to see that AMD decided to stick to its FM2 based socket. Today, we have the AMD A10-6700 processor at hand to put to the test.
