MSI Big Bang-XPower II : Flagship X79 Board Announced
by thebanik 03-01-12





MSI Big Bang-XPower II : Flagship X79 Board announced

Featuring 22-phase PWM design 4-way SLI / CrossFire support

MSI today announced the official release of the Big Bang-XPower II, their flagship mainboard for Intel® X79 Express chipset. Featuring the PCIE Gen 3 standard and 4-way SLI/CF support with 8 slots of Quad-Channel memory, the Big Bang-XPower II mainboard also adapts a 22-phase PWM design with Hybrid Digital Power, and incorporates dual 8-pin CPU and single 6-pin VGA power connectors to reach Xtreme Power Design. With the introduction of MIL-STD-810G certified Military Class III components, the Big Bang-XPower II comes equipped with materials such as the Hi-c CAPs for CPU power supply. In terms of extreme overclocking, the Big Bang-XPower II provides PCI-E CeaseFire for easily turning on/off graphics card slots and maximizing overclocking performance. Several convenient technologies are also provided including V-Check Points, Direct OC and Easy Button 3. With extreme performances in 4 Xtremes, the Big Bang-XPower II does seem to be equipped for enthusiastic overclockers to break world records!


PCI-E CeaseFire, Direct OC, V-Check Points and Esay Button 3
The MSI Big Bang-XPower II adapts many extreme overclocking features. The PCI-E CeaseFire can turn on or off graphics cards through an easy switch without physically removing the cards, providing great convenience especially during multi-GPUs platform tests on LN2 or otherwise. The Direct OC button can fine-tune the CPU BCLK frequency down to an interval of 0.1MHz, which is key to breaking overclocking world records. The convenient V-Check Points allow users to read voltage values directly from CPU/memory/chipset with the use of a multi-meter. The onboard Easy Button 3 can easily turn off power and reset the computer without the need to externally connect any auxiliary devices.

Following on the success of MSI Lightning graphic card series it seems that this board is similarly capable, though we will hold out on our judgement till we check it ourselves or reviews start pouring out.

Re: MSI Big Bang-XPower II : Flagship X79 Board Announced


Beautiful board...but why the damn emphasis on these stupid gun and bullet heatsinks....Giga did it and now MSI. Its not going to go any faster nor game any better with those stupid looking heatsinks...I would buy that board only if I could get another WC block or something, will never run it with that heatsink..

Oh .. so those are bullets? Can hardly make out from the poor image. They look more like golden crayons.

A nice solid copper core heatsink would carry much more respect than any of these weird looking ones... However with the falling size of the circuitry, heat circulation should not be a worry for long..

Actually since there is no separate NB these days, and there is no need of big chunky coolers on the SB, since it does not require much cooling anyways, which is why MB manufacturers are resorting to such gimmicks.

Nevertheless rest of the features are drool worthy for sure and certainly looks to be made for overclockers.
