MSI Z77A GD65 Review

PC Mark Vantage

In Vantage the stock results drop off a bit from what we saw in our rendering tests. Across the range of tests the GD65 just hasn't quite got the same levels of performance that we have obtained on other setups. Of course the overclock score retains its position at the top of the tree, and it's a two horse race between this and the Sniper 3. 


PC Mark 7

We see more evidence of this slightly schizophrenic performance in PC Mark 7. The stock results are fairly disappointing and yet the overclocked result is the highest we've yet seen.

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
