Nice compact case works great


Definitely would buy and build more, especially for friends and family. Conroe processors up to E6700 only.

Great deal on a compact barebone that is generally well-designed. Various internal harnesses have a cool factor not often found on an entry level product. Vertical or horizontal configuration makes this a great build for family and friends who may...

There are a few points of design that could be improved, such as slightly tricky way to open the case (I had to look at the manual each time, because it's not clear which screws need to come off, and then how to separate the cover from the chassis)....

Nice Barebone


I wouldn't buy one of these again but I'm not a barebone enthusiast so I won't buy any barebone again. I prefer to configure my PCs from the ground up when I build them for me or my customers. Someone will buy this one though once I get the new one...

Nice barebone and not overly expensive. I didn't buy this one from the Egg. Bought it on clearance from a small computer shop that was going out of business. Mine is V.2 and I installed a E6300 Conroe and it started right up. The manual had V 1.x on it...

Onboard video was DOA. I installed a low profile NVIDA GeForce 7300 in it and I got video. Guess I'm going to have to RMA this one back to MSI.

love it


Slight cpu fan noise for me. Replaced with larger fan by tapping into the top plastic of the cpu heat sink.

Great HTPC. Installed behind 52" LCD TV.Saves in shelf space. 8800GT, XP, VLC streaming from server Quieter than P4 Shuttle

MSI Hetis 965 Black Intel Core 2 Quad / Core 2 Duo / P4 / Celeron 400 Intel Socket T(LGA775) Intel G965 Intel GMA X3000 Barebone


It works and I won't ever buy another Shuttle again. :)

It works. I had to RMA 3 Shuttle barebones PCs to Newegg (thanks guys!)... did more research and bought this. Worked the first time out of the box. Plopped in a Core2Duo E6400 and 2 sticks of OCZ 2gb ram, Windows XP SP2 and it rocks. Nuff said

The built-in graphics won't amaze you for game play. I installed a PCI-E x16 NVIDIA card and that works great. NOTE - the space you have for the graphics card is limited by the CPU fan height... 170mm PCB length or shorter or you'll be in trouble

Quality, Stability forever


not much at all, right of the box, love the user friendly style.

built 5 of these bad boys. superb quality, excellent snap-in-on hardware, easy to setup and fast right out of the box. been using 3 of them for over a year. clients used the other 2 for 8 months now, flawless. super super super

wish it had a full height PCI-E slot for the better graphics cards

Good Case, Very Reliable


Good system with very quiet fans.

Very Quiet easy to use case. Riser card includes a PCI and PCIX slot with room for 2 full height cards. Worked with the 945 and 865 cases before this, and they were both constructed in a similar fashion. I've had some 865's out there for more than 2...

Large vents make spill hazards possible. Had someone accidentally spill water in one and kill it. No DVI port on the 965, but it was present on the 945 and 865 (full version)... although I never used it, it was a nice selling point

MSI Hetis 965 Black Intel Core 2 Quad / Core 2 Duo / P4 / Celeron 400 Intel Socket T(LGA775) Intel G965 Intel GMA X3000 Barebone


Bought it for a small gaming rig, added a Q6600 and a "short" Apollo 3850. A person wont be able to add a graphics card over 190mm in length.

It is very easy to work in and is a very well built case. Msi did a very good job of cooling it. Also it is quiet

Wish it came with a 300W power supply, wish there was room in the front to add two 60mm fans. Wish bigger graphics cards would fit

Definately will purchase again!


This is the best bang for your buck IMHO. You definately get more than what you pay for with this barebones box.

This is a great little box! I was suprised with the quality when I opened it up. It is a gorgeous little Media Center PC as well as a functional Gamer rig. I fitted it with a Core 2 e6300 with 2GB of corsair memory and the add in card for a graphix...

No support. The instructions that came with it was a single sheet of paper that looks like it is a copy of a copy of a copy about a million times.

Not Linux Compatible


Would have prefered to purchase the Hetis 800 (what I used in the past without problems), ordered the 900 without thinking it would be an issue.

Looks great.

Not Linux compatible.
