[H]ard|OCP offers a second opinion on the Socket AM3 motherboard that Josh enjoyed so much, the MSI 890FXA-GD65.  This board differs significantly from other economy class motherboards because MSI redesigned it from the ground up instead of just cutting off pieces from a more expensive model.   

Drop by for a look at [H]'s testing results.

"With LGA1155 boards being all the rage, it’s easy to forget about those who are using the AM3 platform. We rectify that by taking a long [H]ard look at the MSI 890FXA-GD65. A simple and very basic design that makes up for its lack of features in many ways. For around $130 it may be just what the OC Genie ordered."

Is it just me or did Newegg raise the price of the board (or rather decrease the discount to $5 off) after that review went up? I'd think I was just paranoid if they hadn't also changed the entry to reflect that it got the HardOCP gold reward.

On another note why did it get gold there and silver here?

It is possible - Newegg does pay attention to things like that pretty regularly.

As for the gold/silver: we just have different opinions and ratings for things. After all, if we all had the same things to say why would we need more than one review site?
