MSI X99 Motherboards




MSI has really stepped up their game the past few years, putting out some pretty solid products with nice designs. Most noteworthy is their entire black motherboard, the X99S-SLI Plus, which certain users had been asking for. Their Gaming series is also pretty abundant, featuring upgraded audio.




MSI's VRM highlights, they are also using integrated power stages, perhaps IR, either way they should be formidable. MSI does well when it comes to high-end VRM design, their X79 Big Bang XPower 2 featured a VRM heat sink with a Gatling gun, for X99 they have gone more compact, which is a good move.




MSI's audio solution for their Gaming series.




MSI also is paying special attention to the CPU socket, however, this time they are providing a shim to hold down a de-lidded CPU - it should be interesting to see how many users de-lid their CPUs.




MSI is also featuring the Ultra M.2 with four PCI-E 3.0 lanes with up to an impressive 32Gb/s of bandwidth.
