Core Cell

Core Cell is MSI's new catch phrase and it has a number of features, including; decreasing overall system noise, power saving functions, prolonging the life of system components, and even overclocking, apparently.


Dynamic Overclocking Technology is the automatic overclocking function. It is designed to detect the load balance of CPU while running programs, and to adjust the best CPU frequency automatically.

Core Center

The all-in-one hardware console is an advanced combination of the popular PC alert and Fuzzy logic applications. It offers powerful functions such as hardware monitor, system alert, and instinctive overclocking UI.


This program is a kind of control center for the motherboard. DigiCell has its own tools for monitoring network connections. And it has an integrated Power On Agent utility that can start up and shut down the computer according to a schedule.

Cell Menu

The Cell Menu provides overclocking function with detailed voltage adjustment.
