Features:

  • Green Power Design: With Multi-phase PWM IC, dual-channel PWM design and Hi-c CAP, which lead to better power converting, reducing noise and expand the lifespan and stability. Hi-c CAP can bring 100x faster electrical conductivity than solid capacitor and less power loss. PWM brings more power efficiency, thus lowering the real power use.
  • EPP Memory: EPP (Enhanced Profile Protocol) memory is a standard launched by NVIDIA®, which is an extra level of detail over the standard SPD included in the RAM.  It brings 1.5x more performance than standard memory, and also brings more room for overclocking. Besides, it is an open standard.  Bundled with SLI technology, it will creative the amazing performance than you ever thought.
  • 3-way SLI Technology: NVIDIA 3-way SLI® Technology build the fastest gaming solution available with NVIDIA nForce® chipsets and three NVIDIA® GeForce® high-end graphics cards. (*Note: For Windows Vista Only.)   Compared with single graphic card solution, it brings 2.8x faster performance.
  • X-Fi Audio: Make MP3 music sound better than CDs, transform to surround sound (speakers/headphone) from stereo audio source. EAX ADVANCED HD 4.0 provides the fidelity of gaming audio effect. World’s First PCI-E interface X-Fi audio card
  • User Friendly Design: Functions designed with button to be easy use. Help power-users tweaking process in-chassis environment, onboard SATA ports are stacked on the mainboard to avoid mechanical issue with giant graphic cards like 8800 Ultra.
  • ESA Ready: The ESA (Enthusiast System Architecture) is the industry’s first open-standard PC monitoring and control protocol, which brings bi-directional, real-time communication and control of system thermal, electrical, acoustic and operating characteristics. ESA-certified components and applications allow power users to diagnose component-specific issues and tune their systems to meet their individual needs—whether it be unleashing hidden performance of PC or modifying for a whisper-quiet home theater operation.
  • 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.
  • 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. 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.
