MSI Z77A-GD65 Gamming

sogrey, Amazon
9 August 2013
  • Summary: This board is as advertised. 2 Intel SATA 6.0, 2 SB 3.0. So what if you have a pair of SATA 6 hard drives you want to run in RAID and an SSD? You are out of luck. Set the SATA 6 in intel 1 & 2, and put your SSD in SATA 3. Raid will be grayed out in bios otherwise.

  • Summary: If you are into overclocking do not get this board, It does not support offset voltage which means you will have to run at a fixed voltage and frequency.

MSI partial failure

Practicedummy "Pinball playing freak", Amazon
12 June 2013
  • Summary: Why would MSI make a board and gear it for gamers and yet put in INTEGRATED graphics chip on the board? Self respecting pc gamers don't use integrated graphics to play games with.

Great motherboard, mediocre follow-through

ccc, Amazon

  • Summary: There's no denying that the hardware here is great. For such a great motherboard, though, it's disappointing to see little attention paid to the packaging and software. First, the "military-class" stuff is way over the top. It just looks ridiculous.

Good while it lasted

Shane, Amazon

  • Summary: I loved this board while it lasted. Cons: Quality issues. Last week I did an RMA/return of my second MSI Z77A-GD65. First one was DOA. Second one lasted 5 months and then died. It wouldn't POST. My guess was a memory controller issue. Pros: -The board layout is quite good.

Well featured but DOES NOT SUPPORT 2x SLI when a pci-e souncard or similar is used

Boffinboy, Amazon
1 February 2013
  • Summary: Decent motherboard but be aware that installing any card in the third pcie slot e.g. a soundcard disables SLI on the main 2 slots. This is because the MSI board uses the chipset to provide bandwidth for all 3 pcie slots, other manufacturers only use the chipset pcie lanes for two slots and a...

  • Excerpt: купил сей девайс с памятью Kingston KHX24C11T1K2 что работает на 2400 МГц, но по каким-то причинам второй синий слот держит максимум 2200 МГц, пришлось ставить в два черных слота, в них все нормально.
  • Pros: качественная элементарная база, или если проще хорошие кандеры и катушки индуктивности.
  • Cons: смотри в комментариях
