As is obvious I'm sure, we haven't been tackling motherboards on the site much at all the past while, but things are changing. We have many boards lined-up here and are ruthlessly benchmarking them to see which one rules the roost. To kick things off, we're tackling the first Z77 board we received way back prior to Ivy Bridge's launch, MSI's Z77A-GD55. MSI offers many motherboards based on Intel's latest chipsets, with seven equipped with the enthusiast-grade Z77. The GD55 model we're taking a look at here sits just below the GD65, and aims to be the "whole package", while remaining as affordable as possible - and at ~$165 USD, it's a compelling offering. For starters, the board sports MSI's "Military Class III" features, which includes Hi-c capacitors, "Super" Ferrite chokes and solid capacitors. These components are similar to those used in military equipment, so I believe that means you can either control missiles with this board or that it can withstand being run over by a tank. Or, as a third idea, it could also mean it'll have a long-life, regardless of the stress it endures.
