Results - PCMark 7

From the overall score of the test, the MSI Gaming board is second and on par with the well balanced Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H-WB WiFi mainstream performance board, easily making it one of the better boards in raw performance so far.



Results - SPECviewperf 9.0

The Z77A-GD65 Gaming's Pro/ENGINEER (proe-04) score was about a mere 0.5 per cent behind some of the leading high-end boards, else their scores would have been identical.

The Good
Consistently good performer across all tests
Very overclockable
Killer Gaming networking controller
The Bad
Lack of bundled Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity which its competitors offer
More PCIe lanes for multi-GPU configuration would have made this the best gaming board
