Get one now and see for yourself!
Dual-Channel DDR3 1333/1066/800 MHz support
The motherboard supports DDR3 memory that features data transfer rates of DDR3 1333/1066/800 MHz to meet the higher bandwidth requirements of the latest 3D graphics, multimedia and Internet applications.
Auto OC Genie
In the past, users needed to adjust settings for CPU and Memory in the BIOS menu to overclock. The relation between these ratios and clock speeds are extremely complicated, taking up to 30 minutes to find the right settings for an optimized PC. Auto OC Genie simplifies it all into one button press. Where high-end CPUs are usually priced around 1000 USD, Auto OC Genie allows you to take a 200 USD CPU (1/5 the price) to reach the same performance. Your C/P ratio rises up 500% immediately for the ultimate value.
Unlock CPU Core
MSI’s Unlock CPU Core technology, exclusive from MSI, can unlock the hidden cores in the CPU by making a few selections from the BIOS. By unlocking a Phenom II X2 CPU into a Phenom II X4 CPU, users can boost the CPU performance over 104%. In Addition, MSI discovers the ability to unlock Phenom II X4 960T to a 6 core CPU through the same BIOS setting.
Lossless 24-bit/192KHz HD Audio
Onboard PC audio gets better! MSI is the first to implement the most high-end HD Audio codecs available. Don’t be fooled by other inferior audio solutions onboard (sometimes you can’t even find the driver!) Only MSI offers the Loss-less 24-bit/192KHz HD Audio function with an incredible 109 SNR dB value to provide the most clear & vivid HD audio quality and support 7.1 channels surround sound playback with a 2-channel independent stereo output (multiple streaming) through the front panel 3.5 inch phone jack.
Compared to the common mainboard which needs extra BIOS chips, MSI’s M-Flash has a double advantage. Firstly it doesn’t need extra components and secondly all your BIOS data will be saved in the USB drive. The stored data does not only have backup and upgrade function, moreover it can also be seen as a portable BIOS chip which is actually able to boot up your PC.
APS (Active Phase Switching)
Active Phase Switching, APS, technology is an intelligent design that helps to save energy on MSI’s mainboards. The underlying idea is to switch off the power supply as soon as no electricity is needed, and when the system needs more resources again, APS will automatically adjust electricity supply accordingly. APS will automatically detect your processor’s loading at any given time and save energy accordingly. This is only possible by means of a very advanced power controlling technology. Other than software-based solutions, APS technology stands out from MSI's own research. The specially developed IC chip can operate automatically depending on the demands of the power supply, which is to reduce the total power usage.
Winki 3 is a free Linux-based O/S which is based on the Linux core. With an ultra-fast booting speed and a multi-language interface, the built-in Winki 3 provides an easy-to-use internet environment that includes the most popular functions such as internet surfing, web mail, instant messaging, picture browsing, and more. It's the most practical way to be online in the shortest time.
Mobile consumer appliances are getting more and more attention in the current day fast moving life style, with smart phones and tablets almost becoming a fashion accessory. However, many ordinary personal computers cannot charge some of these devices, making it difficult to stay connected. The MSI Super Charger is a Windows resident program capable of revising the power supply mode of your USB port to become more powerful. Once your phone or tablet is connected to your USB port, the Super Charger sends a signal to initiate its charging circuit, making it a really smart and convenient charging solution for mobile computing needs.
All Solid Capacitors on PWM
Capacitors are the most important component for electronic product’s power supply. The quality of the capacitors can impact the stability of the entire system and risk of product failure. Currently there are two types of capacitors, electrolytic capacitors and solid capacitors. Compared to electrolytic capacitors, solid capacitors have a longer lifespan, and provide a more stable power under high temperatures. More importantly, solid capacitors do not have any liquid materials inside, and thus will not suffer a leak which would infringe upon the product’s stability.
Live Update 5
MSI Live Update 5 is a powerful and useful application for updating the latest BIOS and Drivers, saving you time and lowers the risk of updating. End-users can install and run the Live Update 5 software on their computers with the companion CD or downloading the app from the MSI website.
