Key Features
Military Class II
The perfect trinity of quality, stability and efficiency all exist at one mainboard to meet end user expectations. The MSI Military Class II series products provide the long lifespan, unparalleled quality, extreme performance and ultimate efficiency.

Hi-c CAP
8X Lifespan than solid Capacitor!!
Insisting on the best stability, MSI utilizes Hi-c CAPs on Military Class series. Made of the rare element Tantalum, often used on space shuttles and satellites, which sustains very high temperatures and shows an amazingly high electrical conductivity.

SFC
SFC(Super Ferrite Choke).The super Ferrite Chokes use a Ferrite core that is Super-Permeable. Compare with traditional choke, the Super Ferrite Chokes run at a 35 degree Celsius lower temperature. The lower working temperature will enhance mainboard stability.

Solid CAP
10 years long lifespan
For providing the highest quality products, we built-in Solid CAP in the entire Military Class series. This not only makes bursting capacitors a non-issue but also ensures a dramatically extended lifetime and ultra-low ESR.

all in all this is a gret motherboard but the sound on the board isnt the best i had to install a soundcard a really cheap one aswell to get rid of coil wine from my gcard this could be just a problam with my gcard and the mboard conflicting but its really annoying

great board

First of all the OC Genie II is rubbish overvolting my ram to 1.65V for no reason whatsoever and getting a silly 3.05Ghz overclock from 2.5Ghz
I had to go manual and gt 3.9Ghz on 1.44V vcore
I did not set any other voltage the rest is on auto except ddr 3 speed HT ans South bridge
Did not have a chance to test stability but my old board could get me 3.4Ghz

For the moment this is a keeper
