Military Class 4

Military Class 4 is the next step in high quality components. The Dark Choke and Solid CAP will make sure that your PC runs more stable under extreme gaming conditions.

DARK CHOKE

Dark Choke uses the special core design and allows the Dark Choke to run at a lower temperature with higher capacity and better power efficiency and stability.

DARK CAP

With their aluminum core design, Dark CAP`s has been a staple in high-end design mainboard designs and provides lower Equivalent Series Resistance (ESR) as well as its over-10-year lifespan.

 

ISOLATED AUDIO PCB

With traditional onboard audio the signal is distorted by electromagnetic signals from the rest of the PCB. Acting like a dedicated soundcard by physically isolating the audio circuitry which is separated by a isolating path. Less interference gives you a more clear audio signal.

HIGH QUALITY AUDIO CAPACITORS

With the use of professional Nichicon Japanese capacitors, specially designed for audio purposes, 970A SLI Krait Edition delivers high fidelity crystal clear sound with exceptional acoustics and realism.

In fact the MSI 970A SLI KRAIT Edition is a pretty good value board that we could easily see using in future low cost builds.

The motherboard preformed quite well in all areas and if we had a processor with a higher overclocking margin results would be even better.

Krait Edition — это симпатичные, но в то же время надежные и функциональные материнские платы. Как я уже говорил, конкретно модель 970A SLI Krait Edition примечательна тем, что является первой в мире платой, оснащенной интерфейсом USB 3.1.

Ugyan az MSI 970A Krait AM3+ -os alaplaphoz képest drágának bizonyul a maga 40 000 Forintos árával, ettől függetlenül remek külsője, és egyéb extrái mégis örömet képes szerezni újdonsült tulajdonosának. Biztatás képpen ajánlott díjban részesítjük
