Features:

DrMOS

  • Excellent energy-saving capability and offers high-computing performance.
  • In full loading system, DrMOS drops the surface temperature by 16 degrees.
  • Provide superior energy-saving function and maintain an ultimate low temperature operation.
  • Comes with three incredible features.

All Solid Capacitors

  • Longer lifespan than electrolytic capacitors
  • Endurable to operation under higher frequency & temperature
  • Avoid exploding capacitors to cause mainboards failure

All Shielded Choke

  • A choke is an inductor responsible for storing power and regulates the current.
  • All shielded choke could reduce core power loss, lower EMI interference.
  • Store energy longer at higher frequency, achieving higher efficiency.

Circu-Pipe 2

  • Equipped with 5 heat-pipe
  • Trapezoid plate - Best heat transfer
  • Max expansion in limit space - fit with giant CPU cooler
  • Exclusive Circu-Pipe2 offers high quality extreme cooling

2-phase Power

  • 2-phase Power on Memory/Northbridge
  • Power Efficient!
  • Lower Temperature
  • Max voltage Control

VGA Booster

  • Both graphic channel are from Northbridge(MCH), no more bottleneck issue
  • Native PCI Express 2.0
  • Auto detect & switch in 1 x16 / 2 x8 (CF-X) mode
  • VGA Booster push the 3D performance up to a new level

OC Jumper

  • RapidBoost - OC Jumper
  • OC Jumper gives MSI mainboards more tolerance to achieve OC limit
  • Make overclocking easier for end-users

M-Connectors

  • Easy connect to front panel & chassis cable
  • 2x USB, IEEE 1394, front panel (JFP1/2)& audio(JAUD1) M-connector in the package
  •  Easy to tell the definition of each pin

User Friendly Design

  • Functions designed with button to be easy use.
  • Help power-users tweaking process in-chasis enviornment
  • Onboard SATA ports are stacked on the mainboard to avoid mechanical issue with giant graphic cards like 8800 Ultra.

CrossFireX Support

  • Equip with 2 or more PCIe x16 slots, ATI CrossFire Ready.
  • The ultimate multi-GPU performance gaming platform.
  • Provides 2.7x faster performance than single graphic card solution.

Green Power Design

  • With Multi-phase PWM IC, which lead to better power converting, reducing noise and expand the lifespan and stability.

MSI Advanced Live Update Online

  • The MSI Live Update online is designed to automatically download and update the BIOS and driver when there’s a new version online. It helps reduce the risk of getting the wrong file and minimize the trouble of searching the files from MSI website.
    Dual Core Center
  •  Key components status hardware monitor.
  • Monitor the Dual Core CPU each unit status.
  • Optimize System status define.
  •  Auto speed up with system loading change.
  • live_update_3 standard: Live Update 3 is a single utility software that automatically checks BIOS, driver and utility updates and installs for you , which can save your time for searching and lower the risk while updating.
