All Solid Capacitors

Capacitors are the most important component for electronic product's power supply. The quality of the capacitors can impact the stability of the entire system and risk of product failure. Currently there are two types of capacitors, electrolytic capacitors and solid capacitors. Compared to electrolytic capacitors, solid capacitors have a longer lifespan, and provide a more stable power under high temperatures. More importantly, solid capacitors do not have any liquid materials inside, and thus will not suffer a leak which would infringe upon the product’s stability. With such benefits is it no wonder that solid capacitors are very important for product quality's improvement.

APS (Active Phase Switching)

Active Phase Switching, APS, technology is an intelligent design that helps to save energy on MSI’s motherboards. The underlying idea is to switch off the power supply as soon as no electricity is needed, and when the system needs more resources again, APS will automatically adjust electricity supply accordingly. APS will automatically detect your processor’s loading at any given time and save energy accordingly. This is only possible by means of a very advanced power controlling technology. Other than software-based solutions, APS technology stands out from MSI's own research. The specially developed IC chip can operate automatically depending on the demands of the power supply, which is to reduce the total power usage.

Unlock CPU Core

MSI’s Unlock CPU Core technology, exclusive from MSI, can unlock the hidden cores in the CPU by making a few selections from the BIOS. By unlocking a Phenom II X2 CPU into a Phenom II X4 CPU, users can boost the CPU performance over 104%. In Addition, MSI discovers the ability to unlock Phenom II X4 960T to a 6 core CPU through the same BIOS setting. At same time, MSI was the first who could unlock a 4-core AMD CPU to a 6-core because MSI does not use any "unlock" chip on our motherboards. MSI engineers developed a BIOS technology to unlock cores which can be easy upgraded via new BIOS. Because of this flexible BIOS core unlock feature, MSI can today announce that it made BIOS unlocking easy and accessible for the audience who doesn’t know their way around the BIOS. This new MSI software tool allows users to unlock CPU cores from Windows with just a few simple clicks, no need to enter the BIOS.

Easy OC Switch

Every user desires more performance.  MSI has special Easy OC Switches to provide that accessibility to all users. This great technology makes it easier to tweak the core clock settings. There's no need to have a detailed understanding; with just a few simple steps, everyone is able to get the most out of their motherboards. With a single click, the whole system will increase by 5%-20% performance, making overclocking a very easy thing to do.

MAX FSB

In order to allow the average user to easily enjoy the fun and performance of overclocking, MSI provides the MAX FSB easy overclocking technology. Users only need to make the appropriate selection in this BIOS menu, reset the system and in 10-15 seconds time, viola! The processor will be overclocked to its highest possible FSB and the user doesn’t have to fret about understanding any complicated technical information. Simply set, sit back, and enjoy.

Super Charger

Mobile consumer appliances are getting more and more attention in current day fast moving life style, with smart phones and tablets almost becoming a fashion accessory. However, many ordinary personal computers cannot charge some of these devices, making it difficult to stay connected. The MSI Super Charger is a Windows resident program capable of revising the power supply mode of your USB port to become more powerful. Once your phone or tablet is connected to your USB port, the Super Charger sends a signal to initiate its charging circuit, making it a really smart and convenient charging solution for mobile computing needs.

Note: Only front red USB ports support charger function after system off

All Shielded Choke

A choke is an inductor responsible for storing power and regulates the current. All shielded choke could reduce core power loss, lower EMI interference, and store energy longer at higher frequency, achieving higher efficiency. It also offer a special centralized structural design that can effectively reduce the production of noise, provide secure stability and has no high frequency buzz noise-fully meeting the multiple demands low temperature/low noise and stable high performance.

Sideport Memory

Sideport memory is memory dedicated to the onboard GPU. It aims to give the onboard GPU its own memory, reducing the amount of system memory needed to be allocated to the onboard GPU. Its performance is faster than using system RAM. Sideport memory equipped additional 1Gbit (128MB) DDR3 1333MHz IGP memory to accelerate onboard VGA 3D performance up to 15%. Independent IGP memory can reduce the consumption of system memory.
