MSI Z97 XPower Motherboard Review - PCSTATS.com MSI Z97 XPower Motherboard Review
Tue, Jul 15 2014 | 5:02PM | Filed under: Motherboards| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

MSI did a nice job with the XPower board refresh embodied in the Z97 XPower AC motherboard. While the board updates were more subtle than those of other manufacturers, MSI did make some welcome additions to the board to make it a good invested in comparison to the Z87 version board. The most obvious updates are in the CPU VRM heat sink design with the Z97 XPower having an illuminated XPower logo as well as the addition of water barbs to the VRMs. While the VRM heat sink remains disconnected from the chipset heat sink, the ability to integrate the sink into an existing water loop is a welcome addition. Further, the integrated Wi-Fi solution was update to an 802.11ac capable adapter, there is a 10Gbps-capable M.2 port included, and the integrated overclocking controls were improved upon."
