Review:
Quite highend at bargain price


This review will also be available in German shortly.



With Sandy Bridge just around the corner, it's time to get some bargains. Manufactures will sell off the "old" stuff and if you are interesting in overclocking the current line-up from Intel is the last chance to do so. The new CPUs will be drastically limited and you would need unlocked editions which will cost you an arm and a leg. Today we take a look at the MSI H55M-ED55, which sports the H55 chipset for current LGA 1156 CPUs.
