MSI Z77A GD65 Motherboard Review
The packaging of the GD65 leans heavily on the Military Class III branding that has accompanied MSI motherboards in one version of another for some time now. The rear of the box emphasises the various technologies included. This is a box designed to grab the eye on a shelf.
Within the box we have the usual selection of manuals and guides, as well as a selection of SATA cables. It's not the plethora of accessories we've seen from other boards, but then this is far more affordable too.
The board itself is well laid out, in the now usual MSI black and blue colour scheme. Everything is where you expect it to be and nothing looks like it's been thrown into whatever space was available.
Let's move on to looking at it a little closer.
