MSI has announced the availability of the MSI Z77 MPOWER, its first OC Certified motherboard.
OC Certified is MSI’s overclocking testing procedure where motherboards are tested for stability with a 24-hour stress test. All OC Certified tests are run at 4.6 GHz CPU speed, in a high-temperature room (30°C) without airflow from a CPU cooler. Better power stability is tested by running Prime95 for 24 hours in these conditions.
The MSI Z77 MPOWER supports socket LGA1155 processors, features four DDR3 sockets, three PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots, four PCI Express 2.0 x1 slots, two SATA-600 ports (with RAID support), four SATA-300 ports (with RAID support), six USB 3.0 ports on the rear panel, two USB 2.0 ports on the rear panel, one Gigabit Ethernet port (Realtek 8111E), eight-channel audio (Realtek ALC898), Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0+HS, one DisplayPort, and one HDMI video output.
The board has military-class components, and several of MSI’s proprietary technologies, including Click BIOS II and OC Genie II.
MSI did not say the motherboard’s price.
