MSI's MPower Max is designed to go head to head against the likes of ASUS' Z87 Deluxe and Gigabyte's UD7 series but with a massive feature set, it has the capability to outstrip both.

Did I miss a comment on the mSata port other than the fact that it uses the same resources as one of the standard Sata ports? Maybe I'm out of the loop on intel boards these days... is it common practice now to include a mSata port?

I have the predecessor MPower Z77 Military Class and I have not been disappointed in the least.

Some people like the 'clean' look and have as much on the board as possible. Other use it so that they can tear out the hdd cage and use the area for water cooling. Its not all THAT common...but it is becoming more common.

This board is a beast. I have been using it for the past 3 months and it has been rock stable. So much so that I have put it in my own testbed and expect it to stay there for a long time. Highly recommend it. :thumb:

Nice review. :thumb:

I wonder if MSI's latest C2 chipset boards are in the wild yet? I noticed the one in review was a C1 revision.

Did you have the review board long?
