APS (Active Phase Switching)
Active Phase Switching, APS, technology is an intelligent design that helps to save energy on MSI’s mainboards. The underlying idea is to switch off the power supply as soon as no electricity is needed, and when the system needs more resources again, APS will automatically adjust electricity supply accordingly. APS will automatically detect your processor’s loading at any given time and save energy accordingly. This is only possible by means of a very advanced power controlling technology. Other than software-based solutions, APS technology stands out from MSI's own research. The specially developed IC chip can operate automatically depending on the demands of the power supply, which is to reduce the total power usage.
Compared to common mainboard which need extra BIOS chips, MSI’s M-Flash has a double advantage which doesn’t need extra components and secondly, all your BIOS data will be saved in the USB drive.

MSI packed the P67A-GD65 with several high-end features that cater to a variety of users ranging from novice overclockers to hardcore enthusiasts looking for the best components at a competitive price. The B3 version of this board is fixed squarely under the $200 ceiling and includes highly-conducti
he MSI P67-GD65 is thus far the lowest price P67 board that we've tested; not bad for a board that was on par, and in some cases leading, our test results. The board is a great cornerstone to any build, and more than enough to tackle the most stressful titles that the gaming genre has to offer.

J'adore cette carte, Je l'ai achetai avec un 2600k, quand j'utilise le bouton pour overclock je passe de 3.4 à 4.4 ghz ! Par la suite je l'ai overclocker à 5 ghz assez aisément avec le control center qui permet l'overclock direment à partir de windows !!
I picked this board as soon as the B3's started showing up on NCIX because it had everything I wanted, even ieee 1394. Installation was easy (yes, no screws, but that's minor). The BIOS was a change, but easy to navigate. OC Genie is amazing! my 2500K is running at 4.2GHz with temps only a few degrees about ambient and stable as a rock.
Despite the fact that they didn't ship with screws (luckily I had extra otherwise I'd be mad)this motherboard is awesome. The UI looks awesome, overclocking is extremely easy and for those who are uncomfortable with OCing, the OC Genie will OC from your Sandy Bridge from 3.3Ghz to 4.2Ghz just by pressing 1 button.
