MSI Z77A GD65 Review

Unigine Heaven

If things were inseparable in 3D Mark then Unigine definitely gives the nod to the GD65. It's worth remembering that the D3H and below were tested using a HD7970 rather than the HD7950 we used on the Sniper 3 and today's review.



Finally we return to our fairly usual split of results in wPrime95, with the stock performance somewhat poor and the overclocked result being up there with the very best.

MSI's z77 offerings have become a really popular suggestion for new builds on these forums. I'm glad that the official OC3D reviews agree!

Thanks for the review Bryan.Quote

Yup, MSI have really hit jackpot with Z77, and for good reason.
A very good review - glad I made the right choice, and thanks to SieB for recommending the '65 to me!Quote

i took a punt on msi whilst building my new rig, never having used one before.

all i can say is, despite the bewildering options on the uefi (i really wish they'd agree on standardised namings across different uefi's) the board is godly and i'm glad my gamble paid offQuote
