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. These will be covered later in more detail.
Compared to some of the more mainstream products, the X99S MPower has a generous amount of items included. Common items include Quick install Guide, driver disc, Software & Applications User Guide, MPower User guide, door hanger, cable labels and MSI OC series badge. Accessories included are six black SATA3 cables, two SLI flexible bridges, M-Connectors and a black and yellow I/O shield.
There is also an MSI Intel X99 platform Overclocking Guide. The Overclocking Guide offers detailed explanations of X99 OC abilities, key Bios items and much more helpful information that will aide in achieving a successful overclock
