Default Trinity Review

No HWC Trinity review?

It's a very interesting product that I think merits some good discussion...

There will be one. There were serious motherboard issues throughout testing which pushed things back by about a week.

We prefer to publish a full review rather than push out a half-assed one in order to meet a launch deadline.

Of course & from what I read in others so far there where other reviewers with the same issues.

Hence why there were so many half-assed reviews at launch...

LN2? Would have been cool if 7GHZ was on plain water. Forgive my pun.

It was an MSI board but I have heard of issues with almost every FM2 motherboard out there. Just make sure you update the BIOS the SECOND you get it.
