The MSI Z87 MPOWER Max motherboard is equipped with all the necessary features to make sure you get the most out of your system. From the Enhanced PWM and Thermal Design that give you the best stability, to all the easy features that ensure that you don't have to perform a lot of tricks to get great stability in your quest for performance. It is OC certified and can survive any overclocking situation. OC Certified is a military-class burn-in test for motherboards. Running Prime95 for over 24 hours with a highly overclocked CPU is already a stressing endeavor, but removing all airflow from the motherboard ensures that only the best motherboards survive. The MSI Z87 MPOWER Max motherboard is one of the best motherboards.
Unleash overclocking potential
The MSI Z87 MPOWER Max comes with an OC PCB with increased number of PCB layers, increased humidity resistance, tight weave fiberglass PCB and increased ESD protection. DigitALL Power digitally steers and receives feedback through a DigitALL PWM controller for pinpoint voltage delivery and lower power consumption. With the switch from analog feedback to digital feedback, you also have the opportunity to implement Load Line Calibration. The MPOWER Thermal Design is optimized to work in low-airflow situations. It is the ideal cooling to use with your liquid cooling setup. With extreme OC socket design, normal coolers can easily be installed and the motherboard can easily be insulated for extreme cooling solutions. MSI Overclocking motherboards are equipped with advanced overclocking software tools to finetune even the smallest OC settings without requiring extra power from your PC. The software tools include Intel Extreme Tuning utility, MSI Command Center LITE and RAMDisk. A small set of tools are also included to allow you to keep your complete system in check and allow for simple management.
MILITARY CLASS 4 COMPONENTS
Military Class 4 is the next step in high quality components. The Hi-c Cap, Super Ferrite Choke and Solid CAPs will make sure that your PC runs more stable under extreme conditions.
A Hi-c CAP is a very small, but super-efficient capacitor. Besides ensuring enough spacing around a CPU socket to install large coolers, it also allows for 93% energy efficiency. Thanks to Hi-c CAP`s MSI motherboards are the most energy efficient in the market.
With their aluminum core design, Dark CAP's have been a staple in high-end motherboard design and provides lower Equivalent Series Resistance (ESR) as well as its over-ten-year lifespan.
SUPER FERRITE CHOKE
Super Ferrite Choke uses a Ferrite core that is Super-Permeable. This allows the Super Ferrite Choke to run at a 35 degree Celsius lower temperature, have a 30% higher current capacity, a 20% improvement in power efficiency and better overclocking power stability.
MILITARY CLASS ESSENTIALS
The core of Military Class 4 is based on the essentials which increase your stability in the toughest conditions. The humidity protection and high temperature protection ensure your system can survive each environment, no matter how harsh. The new structure of the PCB limits EMI radiation. On top of that, all the connectors have ESD protection in order to prevent short circuit.
CLICK BIOS 4
The MSI Click BIOS 4 is the latest UEFI BIOS with optimizations for Windows 8. Not only that, it also reacts faster, runs smoother and has better mouse support. And this all comes with many cool features such as hardware monitor, board explorer and OC profiles preview.
SUPPORTS DDR3-3000 MEMORY
If you want to achieve overclocking records, you also need fast memory. The MPOWER not only supports the new T-Topology architecture, it also works with the latest DDR3-3000 standards. This way you are ensured of the best memory performance.
OPTIMIZED FOR MULTIPLE GRAPHICS CARDS
MSI Overclocking motherboards feature one or more PCI-Express 3.0 slots, perfectly aligned and with enough space for an optimal airflow when using multiple graphics cards. Enjoy the best graphics jumping off from your monitor when running a NVIDIA SLI or AMD Crossfire gaming setup. Lucid Virtu MVP 2.0 is the latest GPU Virtualization technology allowing you to utilize your CPU's integrated Intel HD graphics cores in combination with a powerful discrete graphics card to get more gaming performance! Virtual V-Sync is the most important feature for gamers as it allows you to run at a smooth fixed framerate, without compromising in mouse responsiveness, which is the biggest drawback of traditional V-Sync.
Reward your ears with true quality. Get ready for ear-drum-shattering sound, with MSI Audio Boost! Because the complete audio circuitry is isolated from other features, you'll enjoy less interference and more stability. The built-in headphone amplifier allows you to use studio-grade headgear and get the most amazing sound quality out of your gaming PC.
Studio-level integrated 600Ω headphone amplifier
Golden audio jacks for pure audio signals
EMI-shielded audio codec
High-quality audio capacitors
Illuminated audio PCB separation
INTEL WI-FI. BLUETOOTH. INTEL WIDI.
The overclocking motherboards come with an easily unpluggable Intel Wi-Fi / Bluetooth module which also supports Intel WiDi. This way you can easy connect to other wireless devices in your home. The support of 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0 ensures that you have the fastest available transfer speed. With Intel WiDi (stands for Wireless Display) and a WiDi receiver (not included), you can watch movies on your TV without the need for any cables.
