Like MSI Q965MDO this motherboard also supports Core 2 Duo, Pentium 4,
Pentium D, Celeron D and Quad Core processors. It is different from MSI Q965MDO
in a way that it supports Intel Viiv, which is meant for digital entertainment.
Though, it does not support Intel vPro or Intel’s Active Management Technology,
as in MSI Q965MDO. This one also does not support OS installation on the hard
drive through the provided IDE port. It has AHCI controller with SATA RAID 0, 1,
5 and 10. It also has inbuilt 7.1 high definition audio. It was tested with 1 GB
of RAM, 120 GB HDD, Intel Core 2 Duo 1.8GHz and Nvidia GeForce 6600 GT, under
Windows XP environment. After running different benchmarks to test its 
performance, the result that showed up in 3D Mark was 3497 3DMarks; in PC Mark
it ticked 4599 PCMarks. Well, for the performance of a single core we ran
CINEBENCH 9.5 and the result was 209 CB-CPU, and for the dual core, it scored
271 CB-CPU. In POV Ray, it scored 107.92 PPS and with Doom3 it showed up with
the result of 6.9 FPS. As compared to MSI Q965MDH, the score showed up were
slightly good. But considering the price factor, MSI Q965MDH is the better
option to go for.

Bottom Line: Average performance, but good enough for home
entertainment. Overall, a costly buy.
