    Default Msi Z77 MPower

    Today, we have another MSI Z77 offering in the lab named the Z77 MPower. The MPower sports MSI’s Military Class components, so we ask, “Will the MSI Z77 Power live up to its Z77 cousin’s prowess”? There is only one way to find out. Let’s get the Z77 MPower on the test bench and see it in action.

    Thats all bull crap. The G.Skill tridents are only $20 more and are 2400MHs modules at cas 9. They try to sucker you in. The tridents will overclock on that board over 2500MHz and thos "MPower" modules won't.

    Jim, lets be honest, you have never tested a kit from from AVEXIR, therefore you have no idea how well this kit overclocks. Thanks for the link James, I just bought 16GBs of them for the ASRock Z77 OC Formula.

    No memory is optimized for a specific board. They use trhe same Z77 chipset and the same IMC in the processor. I will leave it at that but James, the mosule do match the board nicely.

    Stan, 2133MHz memory is usually 1.3 XMP by Jedec specs and willl not overclock over 2400MHz.

    That is a nice board... it's currently in my top 3 choices for when I switch from AMD to Intel. Thanks for the review.
