Vicious dragon on the box - tick. Sharp red shield logo printed firmly across all panels - tick. "Just Game!" slogan on the side? Yep, tick - this must be MSI's next generation of gaming grade motherboards.
Hey, this is Jeremy from SYF GAMING, and today we're looking at not one, but two of MSI's next generation Gaming G Series of motherboards. When these two siblings turned up on our doorstep lined in their shiny boxes of newly clad armour, I couldn't wait to break them out and put the pair through their paces to see what we as gamers could get out of them.
Design and hardware:
Whilst most motherboards at the end of the day do get locked up behind towering steel and plastic PC cases, MSI's Z87 Gaming series motherboards are certainly one you'll be proud of and want to have upfront on display. To call it gorgeous is almost an understatement. Both boards feature prominent blood red dragon insignia's, stark black contours and a CPU bay encircled with dragon face heatspreads.
The look is one that'll turn heads of anyone interested in PC hardware, and as a gamer, I couldn't be more impressed with the design work MSI has put into practice. We first saw it with the MSI's Z77 range, and I'm glad it's back in full force with these Z87 boards. Little details like the red coated Killer E2205 Ethernet jack work well to blend with the styling's of the board. However, in contrast I was a little surprised to see the LED's from the onboard Sound Blaster Cinema Audio Boost chip glow pink.
The sheer attention to detail on both the Z87-G45 and Z87-GD65 motherboards is remarkable. Placement of system inputs it well thought-out, easy to access, and is comfortable to build with. MSI's graded the specifications and build of components to what they label "Military Class 4" - basically what this boils down to is stringent quality assurance. From our testing and play throughs with both of the boards, I can attest to this.
A quick look at the next generation of Gaming Series Motherboards from MSI.
Based on Intel's future4th gen Intel® Core™ processors with Intel 8 series chipset; the MSI Z87- GD65 Gaming motherboard will feature robust overclocking capabilities for performance enthusiasts and gamers.
Multi-GPU capabilities make it possible to intelligently scale graphics performance by combining two or more compatible GPU's and unlock game-dominating power.
I finally had a bit of time to recover, sit down, and write at my keyboard.
It's pretty hard to figure out where to start, with such a well received and exciting event as this - so I'll just roll through the thoughts swirling in my head. I've got many people to thank, and many more who I'm probably going to forget to mention that deserve just as much credit for their hard work and efforts over the course of the last few months.

Almost 5 months ago saw the origins of what we as a community have experienced and enjoyed over the past week or so. After running consecutive online competition events for Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, SYF GAMING was tapped lightly on the shoulder by a few friendly faces at Team eXile5. This is where the rabbit hole started, and in following such led us on a wonderful journey to where we are today.
The concept was simple; how to best cater to a well matured community of competitive gamers, who've seen years of battle in a game that many think is showing it's age. Six years ago Call of Duty 4 was released, who would have thought we'd still be playing it today?
After a drought of major competitions, a fellow by the name of Craig 'Arseynimz' Nimmo truly stepped up to the plate. A great man brought with him incredible offerings for a community begging for a reason to continue to play. With the pounding of his mechanical keyboard and mobile phone going off the hook, last year saw back to back National titles for the game - the eSports community responded with unprecedented support.
It was obvious, smacking us hard in the face as a wake up call. The Australian and New Zealand community for Call of Duty 4 is phenomenal, and deserves proper support as a major staple of eSport competition in this country.
