MSI Unveils New ECO Series Motherboards

MSI, world leader in motherboard technology, is proud to announce its groundbreaking new Intel based ECO Series motherboards. MSI ECO Series motherboards are the pinnacle of technical ingenuity through revolutionary PCB and software design, resulting in less use of power than a light bulb! Introducing 3 new models with the MSI H97M ECO, B85M ECO and H81M ECO motherboard.

The new MSI ECO Series motherboards offer an unmatched efficiency with power saving up top 40% while delivering 100% performance and 100% compatibility with all 4th generation Intel CPUs and high speed DDR3 memory. With reliable and fast Gigabit LAN from Intel, SATA 6Gb/s and USB 3.0 providing fast storage options and much more, the MSI ECO Series motherboards offer a wide selection of features.

Leaked BIOS Enables Pentium Anniversary Edition OC on Some MSI H97 Boards

A set of leaked BIOS'es surfaced on the web, which apparently enable overclocking of Intel's Pentium Anniversary Edition unlocked dual-core chips, on three of MSI's motherboards based on Intel's H97 Express chipset (which is not supposed to support CPU overclocking). Among these motherboards are the H97M-G43, H97 Guard-Pro, and H97 PC-Mate. All three boards are apparently able to overclock the 3.20 GHz chip all the way up to 4.50 GHz, with a simple crank of the BClk multiplier up to 45.0x. Such a BIOS making it to the web is interesting, because the company released statements in the past, opposing overclocking on H87 and B85 chipset-based motherboards, when the likes of ASRock, ASUS, and Gigabyte released beta BIOSes to support it, before Intel cracked down on them. Given that MSI uses common PCB designs across some 8-series and 9-series chipset motherboards (eg: MS-7850), it will be interesting to see how MSI plugs the leak. For the time being, we've hosted the BIOSes for you, to use at your own risk.

ECS Shows off the Z97I-DRONE and H97I-DRONE

ECS showed off its newest mini-ITX socket LGA1150 motherboards based on Intel's 9-series chipset, and branded in its 1337 series, the Z97I-DRONE and H97I-DRONE.

MSI Goes Black and Green with its ECO Line of Motherboards

It what may look like MSI paying GIGABYTE back in its own coin (of copying color scheme and nomenclature), but is actually a completely different target market the company is going after; the new ECO line of motherboards by MSI offer essential feature-set to mainstream desktop builders, while cutting down greatly on redundant components, costly dyes, and over-the-top packaging materials. The boards also feature energy-efficient VRM designs, to cut power consumption down as much as the platform can allow. MSI unveiled three ECO products, the H81M ECO, the B85M ECO, and the H97M ECO.

Intel Finalizes Feature-sets of the First Wave of 9-series Chipsets

Here's what the first wave of Intel 9-series chipsets will look like. It will consist of upper-mainstream chipsets for the LGA1150 platform, and the sole chipset for the LGA2011-3 HEDT platform. LGA1150 will get two new chipsets based on a common silicon, the Z97 Express, and the H97 Express. The Z97 will be the next top-end chipset for the platform, supporting current Core "Haswell" and upcoming "Haswell refresh" and "Devil's Canyon" processors. Motherboards based on the Z97 chipset, like the ones based on the Z87 and Z77, will feature up to three PCI-Express 3.0 slots wired to the CPU, in configurations of x16/NC/NC, x8/x8/NC, and x8/x4/x4. It will support overclocking, something its sibling the H97 Express will lack. The H97 will also lack the PCIe configurations that the Z97 supports.

Both Z97 and H97 will introduce support for PCI-Express M.2 storage, which offers 66.6% higher bandwidth than SATA 6 Gb/s, and the same bandwidth as SATA-Express. Its introduction will spur up development and launches of a new generation of high-performance client SSDs in 2014-15. Apart from M.2, the two chipsets offer six SATA 6 Gb/s ports with AHCI and RAID support. Rapid Storage Technology (RST) and Smart Response Technology (SRT) are common for both chips, however, the Z97 also features Dynamic Storage Accelerator (DST), something the H97 will lack. H97 will exclusively offer Small Business Advantage (SBA), instead. Both chips will feature 8-lane PCI-Express gen 2.0 root complexes to drive onboard devices, and 14 USB ports, including six USB 3.0 SuperSpeed ports.
