MSI Z87 Mpower MAX Motherboard Detailed

MSI Z87 Mpower MAX Motherboard

The Z87 MPower MAX would feature 20 (8+12) VRMs further boosting the overclocking capabilities of the board. Along with these, MSI Z87 MPower would use Hi-C Caps, Super Ferrite Chokes, Digital PWM, Enhanced
Dual BIOS and the OC essential features which include Clear CMOS switch
near at the I/O plate, Debug LED, Easy button 3, Multi BIOS II, V-Check
Points and more. Overclockers can add additional power to the processor
with Dual 8-Pin connectors which is the same scheme as their XPower Z87 motherboard.
The electrical components are well hidden beneath the large U-shaped
heatsink block referred to as “M” cool design. The Z77 MPower used
heatpipe cooling system which ran through a set of heatsink, it could be
possible that a similar cooling mechanism is featured on the new Z87
MPower motherboard. The motherboard does retain its black and yellow
design scheme. Another heatsink would be allocated to the PCH that comes
with a striking half “M” design scheme that looks nice.
Expansion slots include three PCI-e 3.0 x16 and a few PCI-e x1 3.0
slots along with the addition of an MPCIe slot to support MSATA SSDs or
WiFi modules. A total of eight SATA 6 GB/s ports offer storage while a
PEG connector is located near them. OC Switches and buttons are located
near the bottom of the board, Voltage measurement points are located
near the DIMM slots. The Z87 MPower MAX comes with the latest Audio
Boost chip from MSI that offers high quality audio and is also used on
the Z87 Gaming lineup
from MSI. MSI bundles the board with a tiny WiFI/Bluetooth module that
can be equipped to the MPCIe slot offering wireless connectivity. The
MSI Z87 MPower goes on retail in the first week of June, pricing has not
been detailed yet but expect a premium range for this board.
