MSI P67 and H67 series mainboards

MSI, the world class manufacturer of mainboards and graphics cards, officially launched its latest mainboards equipped with Intel’s P67 and H67 chipsets. MSI has focussed on delivering the best quality components and best performance that the P67 and H67 platforms can deliver. With Military Class II Components and OC Genie II MSI’s mainboards will satisfy the needs of entry-level users, gamers and overclockers alike. MSI’s dedication to component and feature quality are delivering the best P67 and H67 mainboards on the market.

MSI Military Class II Components

Hi-c CAP
A Military Class Hi-c CAP is the ultimate capacitor. The core component of a Hi-c CAP is the rare element Tantalum which is known for its numerous benefits: Hi-c CAPs are extremely small, ensuring you have enough freedom around your socket when placing a new cooler or preparing for even more extreme overclocking. The unique self-healing construction of MSI’s Military Class Hi-c CAP ensures successful operation under extreme temperatures and Military Class Hi-c CAPs have extreme low current leakage, this means a really high efficiency.

Super Ferrite Chokes
MSI’s new Super Ferrite Chokes (SFC) that enhance all attributes of their electrical characteristics: SFC’s have a 10% higher power efficiency when compared to traditional chokes and SFC’s have a 30% higher current capacity for extreme overclocks. Military Class SFC’s have the perfect balance between better overclocking capability and higher efficiency.

Solid CAP
Solid CAPs are the mainstay of high end overclocking mainboards. Military Class Solid CAPs have a lifetime over 12 years under extreme conditions, like temperatures over 80°C. Because of the increased efficiency and up to 50% lower resistance, solid CAPs operate at much lower temperatures and the Aluminium core of an Military Class Solid CAP ensures no risk of explosions.

OC Genie II

OC Genie II is available on all MSI P67 and H67 mainboards. This simply means everyone, whether you’re a veteran overclocker or a first-time PC builder, can overclock with the simple push of a button. OC Genie II allows 900 MHz higher CPU clock speeds after a second or class changing graphics performance after that single click. OC Genie truly allows you to get the best performance out of your P67 or H67 platform.


MSI is the pioneer in usage of DrMOS. For years DrMOS has featured on MSI mainboards and it has proven to be the most power saving solution. DrMOS replaces the traditional MOSFET setup with a 3-in-1 solution. MSI’s DrMOS is space saving, power efficient and can handle up to 400% more power than a traditional MOSFET setup.

MSI Instant OC – Control Center II Overclocking

With MSI’s InstantOC finely detailed overclocking takes a new direction. No longer does a user need to shut down their system and go into the BIOS of a system to minutely adjust settings of their mainboard because InstantOC allows detailed OC settings straight from Windows. A feature that benefits anyone who ever wants to adjust some small overclocking settings.


MSI is an industry leader in the usage of the UEFI BIOS standard. Over 3 years various MSI products have carried a UEFI BIOS, from the P35 EFINITY to MSI’s notebook line-up. Click BIOS gives an easy to navigate full featured graphical user interface to the traditional BIOS features. Supporting the latest hardware like 3TB hard drives and a wide range of languages Click BIOS ensures the user friendliness across the entire line-up.

MSI Super Charger

Super Charger says goodbye to long smartphone charge times. With MSI’s mainboards with Super Charger you can enjoy unrivalled charge times to make every minute spent Super Charging means you’ll benefit for three.

Winki 3
