Today we are going to introduce to you one of the top MSI mainboards based on Intel Z77 Express chipset. As usual, we will talk about the packaging and accessories, PCB layout and features, BIOS functionality. We will also touch upon MSI’s proprietary software bundle, check out the mainboard’s performance and power consumption in nominal mode as well as during overclocking.
We can’t be too optimistic about the performance during overclocking either, because it failed to overclock our processor to the same heights as other mainboards did. The obtained results are summed up in the following table:
According to the table above we could expect MSI Z77A-GD65 and Gigabyte G1.Sniper 3 to be very close, because they did similarly during overclocking. However, Gigabyte’s mainboard is almost always faster than MSI’s, and the difference is always quite substantial. MSI Z77A-GD65 outperforms the Gigabyte board only in a few gaming tests.
