Hi. I had planned of buying the mobo p55 gd65. In the review of this board on anandtech, it has been given that it doesn't work with a few PSUs. Is that right?
Which PSU do you use with that board?

Can't you link to any articles or discussions about the PSU problems?

I can't find any myself and can't imagine why it would have a selective problem with certain PSU's. It's an ATX board so it's supposed to conform to specific ATX standards meaning any ATX PSU should be fine.

It's on the last page of review of this board at anandtech.

They seem to be having a server problem at the moment.

Can you recall what they said?

EDIT: Managed to find the cached comments of the article.
The motherboard seems to be incompatible with Channel Well manufactured PSU's.

Does this board too have socket burning problem? Does this board too carry foxconn socket?

I own one and it is a great board. I am using a Corsair 850W power supply. No issues at all. If you don't need a modular power supply the 850W is a good value.

Have you overclocked your processor?
Haven't you experienced any socket burning problem?

Vinay- I don't have the GD65, but I have the GD80 which has the same Foxconn socket at the GD65 and have had no problems. As far as I can tell, as long as you are not going to be extreme overclocking with really high voltages, you should be ok. I would suggest seating your CPU and locking it down, then removing it again and checking the pads on the CPU. If you can see a clear dimple on each pad where the pin of the socket pressed into it, you should have a good connection and a fine board. My socket makes good and clear contact on every pad and I've overclocked my i5 all the way to 4.0 GHz with zero problems, and I'm running it 24/7 at 3.6 GHz with no issues. These MSI Boards are fantastic and I think, a very good buy and great value (especially the GD65).

I wouldn't worry too much about MSI- their latest lines of boards (especially the P55 line) is really a great set of boards. My P55-GD80 has been running absolutely ROCK SOLID OCed for a couple months now, with me cranking everything I've got at it.
