Package and contents

 

MSI toned down the packaging a bit when compared to the previous version of the MPower boards as the bright canary yellow has be replaced with a darker golden reflective yellow against a pure black background. The large “M” has been retained as expected along with MSI “OC” series logo. On the rear side of the box there are quick outlines of some of the prime features included in the X99S MPower.
