We explore the phenomenology of the full General Gauge Mediation parameter space in the MSSM focusing on the consequences of having a fundamental Higgs around 125 GeV. Assuming GUT-complete structure of the hidden sector, we allow for deviations from the strict definition of gauge mediated SUSY-breaking coming from mild violations of messenger-parity and from extra couplings between the Higgs multiplets and the hidden sector. Relaxing the GUT assumption, our parameter space is defined by the property of having vanishing A-terms at the messenger scale. In this extended setup we focus on the possibility of splitting the SU(3) mass parameters of GGM. In all these scenarios we investigate the possible spectra, discussing to what extent having an Higgs mass around 125 GeV is constraining the GGM parameter space and what are the possible signatures at LHC.
