MSI has been displaying its latest Ivy Bridge motherboards at CeBit 2012. These motherboards include high-end Z77 chipset: Z77A-GD80, Z77A-GD65, Z77A-GD55, Z77A-G45 and Z77MA-G45; mid-end H77 chipset: ZH77-G43; entry-level B75 chipset: B75A-G43. With the adaptation of Military Class III components on MSI 7 series chipset motherboards, Military Class III components provide enthusiasts the highest quality and stability 1. MSI’s Military Class III components have passed seven rigorous tests, conducted by third party laboratories; the tests include extreme temperature, humidity, pressure, vibration and dropping among other things, the components received the MIL-STD-810G Military Class Certification.
In addition, the motherboards are equipped with several of MSI’s exclusive technologies: OC Genie II, ClickBIOS II and MultiBIOS II. At CeBIT, MSI will also display the Big Bang-XPower II and X79 series motherboards that have beaten the highest core clock speed and FSB frequency records.
MIL-STD-810G certified Military Class III components
Continuing MSI’s commitment to the product’s stability and durability, MSI’s 7 series motherboards also imported Military Class III components. In addition to importing Highly-conductive Polymerized Capacitors (Hi-c CAP), Super Ferrite Choke (SFC) and Solid Capacitors (Solid CAP), there is also the next generation DrMOS – DrMOS II. It is embedded with fully automatic dual-thermal protection; when the operating temperature reaches to about 115℃, an indicator on the motherboard will light up, warning the enthusiast to check MOSFET’s cooling status; if the operating temperature reaches to about 130℃, the system will automatically power off, ensuring the motherboard will not be damaged from high temperature! These components all passed rigorous testing conducted by third party laboratories: extreme temperature, humidity, pressure, vibration and dropping; and have received the MIL-STD-810G Military Class certification, making MSI’s Military Class III components the synonym for the highest quality and stability.
The easiest one second overclocking technology – OC Genie II
MSI’s exclusive OC Genie II technology only requires one second to generate amazing performance increase, and also release the CPU, iGPU and memory performance at the same time, maximizing under the most stable situation and considerably saving enthusiast’s time for system adjustment. Once enthusiasts have activated the OC Genie function on MSI’s motherboard, it allows the iGPU’s performance to increase by over 36%! This allows enthusiasts to easily enjoy the performance explosion brought by overclocking.
Exclusively developed dual-interface integrated UEFI BIOS system tool – Click BIOS II
This is the world’s first system tool that integrated UEFI BIOS and Windows application programs; it allows you to adjust system settings under different environments through the mouse or even the LCD touch panel. Click BIOS II is also the world’s first BIOS that allows overclocking settings to be saved onto USB flash drives, and even allows overclocking enthusiasts to upload it to the internet and share it for other enthusiasts to use. It supports as many as 15 languages and is optimized for dozens of commercially available gaming mouse models. Such convenient and thoughtful functions are new technologies developed for MSI motherboards based on enthusiast needs.
Double bandwidth PCI Express Gen 3
MSI’s Z77/H77/B75 series motherboards not only support the newest PCE Express Gen 3 specification, which is able to provide amazing 32GB/s bandwidth that has doubled compared to the previous generation, they also support the next generation 22nm process CPUs, allowing enthusiasts to use the newest specifications to gain the best usage experience.
