MSI Z77 MPower Review

PC Mark Vantage

Our first big surprise comes courtesy of PC Mark Vantage. The Memory and Gaming benchmarks are around the level we'd expect to see, but the Productivity score is the highest we've ever obtained from this set of components. Excellent.


PC Mark 7

PC Mark 7 is an improvement upon Vantage, with a better ability to make the most of threading and similar technologies that have crept into the PC market. The stock result of the MPower is still hugely impressive and stands up against any other motherboard you care to choose. It is only when we overclock that the difference between the MPower and the pricier motherboards becomes clear, but even then it's not disgraced by any means.

Was expecting it to be more than £150, definitely a bargain at that price though.
I was going to buy this board but my GPU is dying, so I need to replace that first

after the GD65 review.. i was ready to plunk down the cash, until i heard of the
Power. the lil bells went off in my head and waited (not long) till MPower was
available. call me vain, but the MPower is worth the lil extra for the color scheme
over the GD65. the actual specs are user necessities. no extra frills, just needed
parameters to have. soon as i thin the inventories down, MPower, you are MINE!

Great motherboard! I'd pick one up with an i5 straight away if I'd have the cash Quote
