MSI Big Bang XPower II Motherboard Review

[H] Enthusiast
9 April 2012
  • Summary: The Big Bang XPower II is easily the nicest X79 board I’ve tested so far in a lot of ways. It is without a doubt one of the best boards I’ve seen from MSI in a long time. The build quality and stability were nothing short of exceptional. While there are some boards that may have some advantages here and there, I’ve enjoyed working with this one the most out of all the LGA2011 boards I've used up to this point.

26 March 2012
  • Summary: Extremely large size of this mainboard makes it incompatible with many system cases out there. However, it doesn’t really matter, because it is not intended for everyday work, but rather for extreme overclocking experiments and setting overclocking records, and in this case standard dimensions, nominal modes and power-saving technologies aren’t necessary.

  • Excerpt: It's been a while since we've looked at a motherboard and since that one it was a while before then we looked at one as well. Like how we went on this massive run of X79 motherboards towards the end of last year, this year has been dominated by video cards.

  • Conclusion: Moving along, we have a front bracket which has two USB 3.0 ports and a back panel eSATA bracket. Then there are eight SATA cables, three SLI cables for a 4-way SLI setup and a CrossFireX cable. Finally, there are the V-Check point connectors for reading voltage of various components.

  • Excerpt: Каждый производитель пытается выделить свою продукцию среди однотипных решений конкурентов. Ведет серьезные исследования в области влияния цветовой гаммы элементов материнской платы на конечного потребителя. Перебирает комбинации дополнительных аксессуаров в комплекте и т.д. Но самое главное во всем этом — правильно назвать «материнку», желательно магическим именем, смысл которого понятен лишь самому разработчику. И чем больше загадки, тем интереснее выходит продукт.
