5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Seems to be a good board. It gets the job done and it seems to have a decent amount of features. I haven't tried updating the bios but I'm not sure I want to. The msi update utility is really grey to use too.

Cons: None

3 out of 5 eggsSeems a bit flaky

Pros: Prior MSI boards have been great.

This board has 8 SATA ports, I have set up a pair of SSDs for the boot drive, a pair of Raptors for fast storage and a pair of Barracuda drives for large storage all in mirrored raid.

Windows experience is 7.9 for storage and memory, with 7.8 for graphics.

Cons: Randomly blue screens, using default settings with overclocking turned off. I am not sure if it is a bad board, bad memory or bad drivers. Ran memtest for 48+ hours with no errors though.

Other Thoughts: Really want to like this board, installed windows quickly, installed programs on it with no problem, but when I went to copy files over from the old computer's drive using an external USB drive, it started to blue screen. Running games on it will blue screen. Running a load test to max out the 4/8 cores for 8 hours will get the temp up to 54C so it doesn't seem to be a heat problem. Upgrading the bios using the MSI update procedure bricked one of the two selectable bioses.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

We apologize for the issues that you are having with this product.
May we suggest that you try Prime95 in the OS to stress the CPU/RAM to verify system stability?
Additionally, please make sure BIOS and ME are both updated when M-Flash is used inside of UEFI BIOS setup.

If you have any questions, please kindly get in touch with our tech support team directly at 626.271.1004 for assistance during regular business hours from M to F, 6am to 6pm Pacific Time, or you can email us at usreview@msi.com.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for new z87 board this should be near the top of your list.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: First PC build since 2006, figured I needed to finally upgrade from my old XP box. MOBO worked great, installed in my old Cyberpower ATX case.
I do wish the BIOS was a bit easier to navigate, I think this is my ignorance more than anything.

Cons: None so far, PC works great

Other Thoughts: MB - MSI Z87-GD65 Gaming

5 out of 5 eggsGreat gaming board!

Pros: Easy install, plenty of ports, powerful, flawless overall.

Cons: The BIOS is a bit...clunky? A little difficult to operate. USB3.0 internal port is flat with the bottom of the board, made installing the USB 3.0 cable for the case USB ports a nightmare. Much swearing and re-bending of the prongs in the USB3.0 input ensued.

1 out of 5 eggsWas excited.. But it's not working.

Pros: Looks good.

Cons: Not working...I went to a specialized PC shop to build the pc with the parts i bought on newegg (For like 2300$)

No monitor ,display, no beep sound even with the ram-sticks out, it simply not working. I've tried everything but it won't work.

I paid high price and can't even use it... I hope MSI will do something about this or even newegg customers service.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Vast set of features almost to the point of excess, well laid out, good BIOS and support. Advanced features have an ease of use that makes it easier for those with less experience to get into them.

Cons: That darn dragon is a real threat to my credibility.

4 out of 5 eggsDo your research

Pros: -It is or was much cheaper than other mobos I was comparing
- Very workable layout
- Dual Bios
- Goto Bios
-cmos reset button
- debug led

- it wasn't doa
- easy to oc

Cons: - It went up in price because its shiny and has a dragon on it

Other Thoughts: Things you should know when buying this board.

Update the bios immediately it will save you alot of frustration

I know that there are alot of boards out there who stress the importance of military class capacitors and components and a fist full of features that can be useful in very niche situations but its very unnecessary for most. After alot of coffee, reading, and nail biting I came across an interesting bit of info. Most of what you here is just predatory marketing. Why would you need a board to run for 20 years when most are getting a new rig every 3-5. I drank the coolaid as well for a long time. Most of these are made up of Foxconn components in different arrangements. Im not talking about just this board. I am talking about all of them. There is no point in brand loyalty with your components.

When I purchased this mobo it was only 150.00us.
It looks cool
It works
and before you panic.... update your bios and smile because you have a new shiny toy.

At the end of the day you have a mobo that works well. If you would like to find the cheapest prices for your components check out pcpartpicker.com they even have a compatibility filter.

I hope this helps :). If not read more and happy hunting!

Peace
