Military Class 4: The Most Stable Military Class Components
MSI uses award-winning Military Class 4 components. Military Class 4 is the next step in high quality components. Hi-C CAPs, Solid CAPs, Dark CAPs, together with SFC and Dark Chokes ensure your PC runs stable under extreme conditions. These key components have all passed military testing ensuring stable operation in the harshest environments.

Military Class Essentials
The core of Military Class 4 is based on the essential elements which increase your stability in the worst conditions. Humidity protection and high temperature protection ensure system stability in each environment, no matter what. The new structure of the PCB limits EMI emission. On top of that, all connectors have ESD protection in order to prevent short-circuiting.

NO need for either for another 2-3 years at least.
Not if your system uses SSDs (SATA 3) or external NAND storage (USB3).

@Jorge - No need for USB3, are you serious? Do you actually plug any storage into USB?

Lack of SATA 6Gb/s and USB3.0 is a limitation of the chipset. The A58 chipset doesn't have native SATA 6Gb/s and USB3.0 support.

It also isn't really necessary for this class of board. If you want SATA 6Gb/s and USB3.0 get an A78/A88 board, both have native SATA 6Gb/s and USB3.0 support.

I know that. The lack of these features limits the boards' potential. You'd be better off spending another $10-15 on an A78 or A85 board.
