It was bad and bordered on the unusable side.
MSI Z68A-GD65 B3 Motherboard Review
The other of which is ASUS. Like all its enthusiast boards these days, MSI uses all solid electrolytic capacitors and its "Hi-C capacitors" with solid ferrite chokes. All of these add up to board that seems well built for general use and everything else you can think of including overclocking.
First off, the chipset only has a limited number of PCIe lanes. As long as all the supporting hardware is on the board to support PCIe 3.
To overcome those connectivity limitations, mainly device limits MSI has integrated a bridge chip. Moving forward though, PCIe generation 3. In fact there is no difference in the real world running a 3 or 4-Way SLI setup on an X58 chipset based board and running the same MSI Z68A-GD65 (B3) Marvell SATA 3 on a P67 board with less total PCIe lanes. This makes it pretty hard to get to once the board has been installed in a case, unless, of course, you have pristine cable runs. Although the OC Genie II technology is very good, and the Control Center II software overclocking application is equally impressive, we sorted out the overclocking the old fashioned way.
By delving into the BIOS, we managed a fairly speedy 4.
These top notch Hi-c Caps, Super Ferrite Chokes and Solid Caps all help to keep the board stable, particularly when its being pushed hard when overclocked. Three system fan connectors are also found located right next to the V-check point and one to the left of the 24 pin power connector respectively.

This makes it kind of hard to reach with the board installed in a case. The board features 8 right angles SATA ports.
The extra 6 Gbps ports come from a Marvell 88SE controller. The Z68 chipset lies under a low profile heatsink which should not interfere MSI Z68A-GD65 (B3) Marvell SATA 3 multi-slot GPUs. It would be wise to connect the SATA devices before installing a graphics card. Strangely, when you look on MSI's global website there are seven boards using Z68 but on the UK site there's just this solitary example: It's just as well it's a well-featured board then.
It comes with all the goodies found on MSI's better equipped boards: It has some features on the board that only they could appreciate; for example there is a check point block to take direct measurements of various voltages the board is using via a probe.

Well I got my MSI z68A-GD65 (B3) today. I will get somthing about marvell, and "no hard disk detected" (there is one plugged in without any.
