MSI's Intel 7 series mainboards are truly one of the most well-rounded mainboards ever created and will surely find its way in many PC builds.
Military Class III Power and power saving
MSI's exemplary Military Class III Components honor the "Top Quality and Stability" slogan. DrMOS II (DriverMOSFET) is the latest edition to the Military Class family and enhances efficiency, reduces temperatures and provides Thermal Protection for extreme overclocking scenarios. The Hi-C CAP is an extremely efficient Tantalum based capacitor with a Nobel-prize winning automatic recovery function and Super Ferrite Choke (SFC) provides 30% more power at 10% higher efficiency compared to chokes used on other brand motherboards. The Japanese made Solid Capacitors provide a long lifetime under gaming loads compared to older liquid capacitors. All MSI Military Class III mainboard components have passed the stringent tests of the U.S. Department of Defense MIL-STD-810G deserving its name Military Class III components.
Smoothest system experience
MSI OC Genie II is world's easiest overclocking technique and allows a complete performance overhaul with a simple push of a button. On the MSI's Z77, H77 and B75 series mainboards this leads to the ultimate performance experience. Pushing the OC Genie Button will push the CPU to 4.2 GHz for 18% better performance, overlock the system memory to 1866 MHz, speed ups hard-disk performance up to 4,5 times in combination with Intel ISRT SSD Caching Technology and now exclusively upgrades the performance of your Graphics card! My OC Genie is a new feature that allows end-users to customize their OC Genie II experience through MSI's unique ClickBIOS II interface. ClickBIOS II has received unanimous praise from worldwide media for its intuitive interface, design and availability as both an UEFI BIOS interface and Windows application. With the forward looking ClickBIOS II interface, MSI is ready for Windows 8 Certification.
