RADAX Thermal Design

The new MSI RADAX fan is the first true hybrid Radial/Axial fan and can be found on our mini-ITX GAMING models. It combines the best characteristics of these fan types in one single fan and allows the best cooling balance in the tiny form factor of mini-ITX. The inside of the fan, based on propeller blade technology takes care of high airflow onto the heatsink. The outside of the fan scoops up additional air and ensures that air speeds up through the heat-sink and is exhausted outward. This allows the mini-ITX GAMING graphics cards to stay cool even when you’re gaming hard on your small form factor PC.

USB Audio Power

The USB audio power design, which powers the USB port independently, offers more stable power and audio signals. The whole new design results in much clearer sound effects with reduced noise along with stable voltage for improved stability for the users’ extra devices, enjoying an enriched sound presentation.

MSI Guard-Pro is the next step in motherboard stability with advanced levels of protection and reduced power consumption characteristics. ECO Power reduces your motherboard’s power consumption up to 29%, Circuit Protection, ESD Protection and EMI Protection all reduce interference and disruptions of surface.

USB Steel Power

Most motherboards will be unable to deliver a strong 5V power signal to all USB ports. Only MSI USB Steel Power continuously delivers a stable 5V to all USB ports on motherboards through a dedicated extra PWM to avoid any performance loss or failing USB devices.

OC Engine

Thanks to an integrated clock generator, MSI Z97 OVERCLOCKING motherboards support more flexible BCLK adjustments, from 100 / 125 / 167 MHz straps. Using these straps prevents system crashing while overclocking on the edge and opens doors to achieve the absolute maximum.

Twin Frozr V
