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.

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
