|MSI OC on Z87, H87, B85 and H81 Chipsets
Z87 the only true Overclocking platform
MSI, a leading Motherboard and Graphics Card manufacturer has updated the BIOS for its H87, B85 and H81 based motherboards with Intel’s latest Microcode update. Since the Initial release of this BIOS, it has allowed CPU overclocking on all MSI motherboards with a H87, B85 or H81 chipsets. MSI, as a technology leader had this feature exposed since the initial release of each of the more than 30 models that were announced back in June, such as the H87-G41 PC Mate and the B85-G43. At this time, it was apparant that, in order to offer the highest stability and compatibility, it was not in the interest of our community to announce a “feature” that we knew would be removed after a microcode update. Intel has since then updated the microcode for their 8 series chipsets and we advise everyone to always use the latest BIOS for their motherboard as this allows them to enjoy the highest level of stability and compatibility. It is with great pain that we see other motherboard manufacturers announce this a feature for short-term marketing gain, neglecting to mention that users would use this function in the near future. We want to urge the PC community to only chose Z87 based motherboards if they want to enjoy the benefits of overclocking since Z87 based motherboards, like the Z87 MPOWER are guaranteed to provide a great overclocking exprience now and in the future, regardless of the use of special BIOS revisions or “features”.
