MSI P55-GD65

In many respects the MSI P55-GD65 is typical of the new crop of P55 motherboards. It has dual PCI Express 2.0 graphics slots that support both CrossFireX and SLI, the Sata connectors are laid down for easy connection, and there is a decent array of expansion slots. In this case, the slots are one x1 slot, one x4 slot and two regular PCI slots.

Not a bird, not a plane, it's... er... SuperPipe

The passive cooling system consists of an isolated cooler on the chipset and two coolers on the power regulation hardware that are linked by an 8mm diameter heatpipe that MSI calls SuperPipe. The result is effective cooling with a sense of space as the board isn’t covered by huge coolers and miles of heatpipes.
