MSI Slips In 770-C35 AM3 Motherboard

With its new 790FX-GD70 receiving good reviews at the high-end AMD segment, MSI is quietly filling up its AM3 socket lineup. Its newest entry is the 770-C35. The board is MSI's first AM3 offering based on the RX780 (AMD 770) chipset. It is paired with the SB710 southbridge, that retains most of the SB750's feature-set except some RAID modes. Advanced Clock Calibration is supported. Four DDR3 DIMM slots support DDR3 memory at speeds of up to 1600 MHz. A single PCI-Express 2.0 x16, two PCI-E x1, and three PCI slots provide expansion. The SB710 southbridge provides support for six SATA devices. The 770-C35 should release soon, at a sub-$100 price-point.

Very good to see some mid range boards with DDR3. I hope to see some 740G or 780G maybe so I can get my server to go DDR3 too!

Think I found my next board! I was about to complain about the lack of crossfire, but then I realized I'm probably never likely to bother with a crossfire setup ever. :p

Aye, but I'll take better features and support over xfire anyday.

On second day, I notice this board has no MOSFET cooling. :ohwell:
