Pros
-UEFI Bios Interface looks and functions awesome.
-Great color combination
-Blue LEDS give nice accent lighting
-Tons of functions and features
-Super fast post and boot
Cons
-Ram slots are close to the CPU. I installed a NH-U12P and had to adjust the fans because they rest right on top of the ram modules. I had to offset the fans a 1/4".

Summary
Overall this motherboard looks and performs as stated. I was always a ASUS guy since years ago a MSI board wiped out my entire computer. RAM, CPU and Motherboard all fried. They left a bad taste in my mouth.

The build quality is top notch, and this board packs a punch loaded with features and easily customizable. Glad i gave MSI another shot this board is awesome i paired it with a i5 3570K

Not a real complaint just wish they would have not included a VGA port and instead gave more USB ports. Does anyone even use VGA anymore?

Pros
- Looks very nice (blue and black theme).
- OC Genie II (works great for me).
- Overall a great motherboard for gaming.
Cons
- No CMOS jumper (ready summary).
Summary
What can I say? It's a great motherboard.

I've noticed a number of people having trouble with OC Genie II. Immediately after I put together my rig, I tried it out and everything ran perfectly fine. My i5 2500K got tuned to a nice 4.2GHz and remained stable during a couple of stress tests.

Also, I'm not sure why people complain about only having 2 SATA 6GB/s ports. I mean, didn't anyone read the specifications? Why complain about a detail you were fully aware of before purchasing? It would only be a con of neither worked...

Another small thing I like about this motherboard is the USB 3.0 header. It's positioned flat, as in, if you plug in your USB 3.0 cable/adapter, it's not sticking OUT of the motherboard, but rather sideways, off the edge of the board, which in my case makes for great cable management.

The one thing I'd have to mention is that there's no CMOS jumper included (unless I somehow lost it during the unboxing). I once tried some manual CPU overclocking and the system crashed on me. I couldn't get into the BIOS whatsoever. It would freeze on the flash screen (so hitting delete  to get into BIOS wouldn't do anything). I had to borrow another motherboard's jumper to reset the whole thing. Luckily I had a spare one, otherwise I'd be sitting with a bricked motherboard.

Pros
Well-built, quality components
Excellent UEFI bios
Easy to use for overclocking newbies with OCGenieII
Cons
Only 2 SATA III ports
The gun barrel style heatsink is dumb
Summary
Very well-built and designed motherboard which includes some excellent software and a very easy to navigate bios. Got it for a nice price after PM, so I'm fairly happy.

Pros
- Plenty and almost too much bios settings to customize!
- Most high-tech bios I ever seen!
- Extremly huge VRM heatsinks, this thing won't overheat for sure!
- Really nice look and good mobo layout.
Cons
- Quite a bit expensive so really not worth it if you ain't gonna overclock.
- "OC Genie" doesn't work so far, I'll have to find out why soon.
- It's a plus to have many settings in the bios but it seems to be 2-3x harder to understand and customize than my (MSI P67A) :/
Summary
It just sucks that the sale price dropped from 145$ to 135$ like one day after I made this order but anyway it was for a friend. It's exactly the new version of my really awesome (MSI P67A) motherboard so I knew I couldn't go wrong with it. There's just so many more features that I was bit lost when I first configurated it but better have more things to choose from than less. Other than the OC Genie not working, I'm happy with the board.

Pros
- Stylish
- Great performance
- Got almost everything you need for a gaming rig
Cons
- The heatsink on the top of the motherboard is a little too big, it block my Corsair H100 watercooling, with the Corsair 300R carbide windowed edition.
- Only 2x SATA3
Summary
In overall, this motherboard is very nice for a gaming value build : very cheap price for everything you need for performance. Build with a i7 3770k processor, MSI Radeon HD 7770 power edition, Corsair GS800 powersupply. Everything works well.

- Manufacturer updates
- OC interface was well designed
- Epic boot times! (with an ssd)
- Good warranty
- Runs really cool (32C under full load, with proc. u 4.3 ghz)

Summary
I bought this board and the 3570k as an upgrade from a p4 i 3.2 and a 5 year intel board.. All i have to say is just WOW! Managed to OC the processor, memory, and video card with such ease, my 9 year old brother would have been capable of doing it lol! The board has a professional feel and look, while sustaining a solid construction. Overall very happy with this board, will buy again!

- MSI Z77A-GD55
- Intel 3570k i 4.3 ghz
- Corsair Vengeance 8gb i 1866 mhz (each stick)

Pros
Great board
Cheap price
Easy to use
Nice OC GenieIII
Loads of features
Sexy splash screen and BIOS
Cons
no wifi
sound adapter is weird and doesn't work too well
Summary
For people for only have one GPU, and a very mid range set-up this is fine. The motherboard doesn't have a PCI slot which was depressing to see, but it works and I have no big complaints with this board yet. It comes with a nice military class III certificate that you can hang up on a wall or something. Overall it's not bad.

Pros
- UEFI Bios Interface is very easy to work with & looks great
- everything worked perfectly fine out of the box
- aethetically pleasing.. just love those those military blue accents
- the whole board looks clean - no useless slot connectors, heatsinks are not too big
- very cheap for a military class board
- capable of gen3 pcie sli/crossfire
- overclocks well; oc genie takes the 3770k to 4.2 which is good enough for a daily hard work
- WHEN IT BOOTS, YOU'RE ONLY GOING TO SEE THE MSI LOGO & then TO WINDOWS.. no other texts postings of some sort.. so quick!
Cons
none that I can think of
Summary
I built my buddy a gaming rig, & I was literally speechless of how awesome this mobo is. I never had any problems with it or its bios, or any of its included softwares & utilities - everything just work flawlessly.

This is how crazy it is, I bought a Gigabyte G1.Sniper 2 which cost me around $360 (yah that expensive). This board is only around $150 and yet in my testing this board beats the Sniper 2 in every way. Just think, this board is not even the highest of the GD series from MSI.

I paired it with OCZ Agility 4, and when the system boots up to windows it takes about 10 secs.. yah crazy fast. Part of the reason why it boots so quickly is bcuz this board only posts its logo and then directly to windows, no other text or any of that junk.

This is my first time using an MSI board and I have no disappointments at all, none what so ever.

The MSI Z77A-GD55 is definitely a mobo that I recommend for a budget gamer & overclocker. Love this mobo!
