The MSI Z87 MPOWER 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.

Military Class 4 components
Military cass 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.

Hi-c CAP
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.

Dark CAP
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-10-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 structure of the PCB limits EMI radiation.

The OC PCB used for the MSI Overclocking motherboards is a completely design where 50% more layers are used. This allows you to optimize all traces for overclocking. Power and signal traces are isolated, resulting in higher efficiency and performance and more features can be installed relatively close to each other without causing interference.

DigitALL power PWM
DigitALL power digitally steers and receives feedback through a DigitALL PWM controller. This allows 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.

Thermal design
Besides inspiring visual awe the MPOWER thermal design was developed to deliver the highest cooling potential in the worst situation. Because it is optimized to work in low-airflow situations, it is the ideal cooling to use with your liquid cooling setup.

Extreme OC socket design
What is more frustrating than not being able to properly fit your cooling solution on your motherboard? Through the use of Military Class 4 components MSI can ensure that normal coolers can easily be installed and the motherboard can easily be insulated for extreme cooling solutions.

MSI command center lite
This lightweight overclocking tool doesn't need installation and doesn't occupy unnecessary system resources lowering system benchmark score. With a single mouse click you have access to the most important overclocking features.

Hardware monitor
Hardware monitor allows you to take control of your system through Total Fan and check your primary system characteristics in an easy graphical interface.

Supports DDR3-3000 memory
If you want to achieve overclocking records you also need fast memory. The MPOWER not only supports the T-Topology architecture, it also works with the 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. That way, you will never have to worry about an overheating PC, while you are enjoying the best graphics jumping off from your monitor when running a NVIDIA SLI or AMD Crossfire gaming setup.

Audio Boost
Reward your ears with true quality. Get ready for ear-drum shattering sound, with MSI Audio Boost! With Audio Boost MSI's delivering the highest audio quality so you can enjoy crystal clear sound and music in games. Because the complete audio circuitry is isolated from other features, you'll enjoy less interference and more stability.

Intel Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Intel WiDi
The overclocking motherboards come with an easily un-pluggable 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.
