MSI has distinguished themselves as having three major motherboard lines. The Classic Series which focuses on the mainstream, the Gaming Series which is geared towards gamers and the Overclocking Series which is made for overclockers and enthusiasts. We are very familiar with the Overclocking Series here at ThinkComputers as we reviewed the MSI Z97 MPower motherboard not that long ago. Today we will be looking at the X99 version of that motherboard the X99S MPower, which sits as the entry-level motherboard in MSI’s X99 Overclocking Series. This motherboard features overclocking specific features like going through MSI’s OC Certification process, MSI’s OC Engine, voltage check points, and of course MSI’s Military Class 4 components. On top of that you have great features like an Ultra M.2 slot with speeds up to 32 GB/s, DDR4 support, MSI’s Audio Boost chip and so much more.
