The MSI Z77A-GD65 is a sharp looking board. I wouldn't base a purchase on the look, but the blue and black color combination is sharp. The all black look is overdone lately, and while red and black looks good. The blue and black color combination is much more subtle and less contrasting, but still looks great. The overall layout of the MSI Z77A-GD65 is quite good. The Easy Button 3 onboard buttons are out in the open and easy to access even inside a PC case, the SATA ports and SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports all come out parallel to the PCB so it will make cable management a breeze.

Loving the black and blue that's exactly what I'm looking for in my next build. Will have to see how it performs next month!

Looks nice, decent PCI-E layout too, something I hated on the MSI P67 boards.
