MSI X79 mainboards with Military Class III components have unanimously proven to be the fastest X79 based mainboards in the world. American overclocker Turn&Burn succesfully overclocked an Intel Core i7 3930K processor to a stunning record of 5.83 GigaHertz on a MSI X79A-GD65 (8D). The 182% overclocking value is the highest for Intel’s “Sandy Bridge-E” processors. Meanwhile renowned Taiwanese overclocker Toppc used a MSI Big Bang-XPower II and Intel Core i7 3960X Processor to set a new record high baseclock 170.33 MHz. These records were made possible through MSI’s exclusive use of Military Class III components on the MSI X79 Series mainboards.
Military Class III components
All MSI X79 Mainboards are equiped with Military Class III components. consisten of the new DrMOS II next-generation MOSFET with double thermal protection ensure safety while providing the highest efficiency and power output. Hi-c CAPs have very high efficiency and small form factor, ideal over overclocking or oversized CPU cooling. Super Ferrite Chokes (SFC) are more powerful and more efficient than Chokes employed on other mainboards and the all-solid capactors are the backbone of any long-lifetime product.
