Highlights and features of MSI motherboard
The most powerful and easy overclocking technology is being implemented on MSI’s AMD 9-Series motherboards and it automatically overclocks & unlocks hidden CPU core in 1 second thereby boosting the system performance up to 248%.
MSI Click BIOS II provides user interface both in the UEFI BIOS and in Windows, providing full system control, including overclocking, security and information. The motherboard uses solid capacitors. Compared to electrolytic capacitors, solid capacitors have a longer lifespan, and provide a more stable power under high temperatures. It is a highlight that all-new USB 3.0 ports with 5 GB/s speed, offer 10 times higher transfer bandwidth and hence Blu-ray movie can be transferred in less than 1 minute. SATA 6Gb/s ports are present in motherboard provides double the bandwidth of traditional SATA 3Gb/s and it unleashes the true performance of new HDDs/SSDs. AMD Cool and Quiet Technology reduces heat and noise and it automatically adjusts processor ratio in order to increase CPU speed with 4 modes.
