MSI Z77A-GD65 Review

maximum pc
26 September 2012
  • Summary: If you intend to run an older Sandy Bridge chip, the slot is deactivated, as SNB doesn’t have enough PCIe bandwidth to run it. By sticking with PCIe 2.0 from the peripheral controller hub, the Asus’s third x16 is hot no matter which chip you run. The Z77A-GD65 is a fine board at its price, but yuan for yuan, the Asus and Gigabyte simply outclass it in extra features and specsmanship.
  • Pros: Intel LAN controller; OC Genie works well
  • Cons: Not enough USB 3.0 ports; no DisplayPort

MSI Z77A-GD65 ATX Motherboard Review With Sandy Bridge

22 April 2012
  • Summary: In terms of features, the Z77A-GD65 is pretty lean without any extras outside of their previous OC Genie II. OC Genie II works just well with Sandy Bridge processors and was capable of pushing my Core i7-2600K to 4.2 GHz with the press of the button. SSD caching isn’t unique to the MSI as the feature is native to the Z77 chipset. Like it was on the Z68. The simplicity behind the Z77A-GD65 is reflective in current pricing.
