The H61M-P31/W8 LGA 1155 Intel H61 Intel Motherboard from MSI supports 3rd Gen Intel Core i7/Core i5/Core i3/Pentium/Celeron processors for the LGA 1155 socket. It features Click (UEFI) BIOS, PCIe Gen 3, OC Genie II, and M-Flash. This motherboard comes with all solid capacitors which provide stable power under high temperatures. It also has Live Update 5, which automatically detects the BIOS/Driver/VGA/Utility Update and supports Microsoft Windows XP/Vista/7 32/64-bit.
OC Genie II
Just press the OC Genie button or enable the OC Genie II function in BIOS menu. The CPU performance (P67 series) or the 3D performance of iGPU (H67/H61 series) will be highly improved.
Whether you want to watch a high bit-rate HD movie or go online gaming, both can be enjoyed with image performance that is smoother and lag-free.
Exclusive OC Genie detects hardware configuration.
Intelligently auto-set clock/voltage of CPU and memory or iGPU.
Increase overall system performance in a second.
All Solid Capacitors
Capacitors are the most important components for an electronic product's power supply. The quality of the capacitors can impact the stability of the entire system and risk of product failure. Currently, there are two types of capacitors: electrolytic capacitors and solid capacitors. Compared to electrolytic capacitors, solid capacitors have a longer lifespan, and provide a more stable power under high temperatures. More importantly, solid capacitors do not have any liquid materials inside, and thus will not suffer a leak which would infringe upon the product's stability. With such benefits is it no wonder that solid capacitors are very important for improvement in product quality.
Click BIOS Concept
Click BIOS Concept is based on the UEFI technology which supports faster booting and large hard drives with a capacity of over 3TB.
Click BIOS can be controlled with both a keyboard and a mouse, which simplifies navigating and manipulating system settings.
B3 Stepping Ready
MSI implements the Intel B3 Stepping 6 Series chipset on its Z68/P67/H67 motherboards for fixing SATA problems in the Intel Series 6 chipsets. The MSI B3 Stepping Ready logo helps consumers to identify the MSI Z68/P67/H67 motherboards equipped with the Intel B3 Stepping chipset. This provides a more confident way to identify the next generation P67/H67 motherboard.
PCIe Gen 3 Motherboard
With ultra-high 32GB/s transfer bandwidth, PCIe Gen 3 provides 2X faster transfer rate than the previous generation, thus delivering amazing capabilities for true next generation extreme gaming.
Provides increased efficiency and compatibility with 2X bandwidth.
Delivers extreme performance for current and next generation PCIe cards.
Intel 22nm CPU Ready
The motherboard is designed to be compatible with 3rd Gen Intel Core i7/Core i5/Core i3/Pentium/Celeron processors for the LGA 1155 socket
Super Charger
The MSI Super Charger is a Windows resident program capable of revising the power supply mode of the USB port to become more powerful. Once your phone or tablet is connected to the USB port of your PC, the Super Charger sends a signal to initiate its charging circuit, making it a really smart and convenient charging solution for mobile computing needs. 1
Live Update 5
MSI Live Update 5 is a powerful and useful application for updating the BIOS and drivers, saving you time and lowering the risk of updating. End-users can install and run the Live Update 5 software on their computers with the companion CD or downloading the app from the MSI website.
Automatically detects the BIOS/Driver/VGA/Utility Update.
Supports Microsoft Windows XP/Vista/7 32/64-bit.
Compared to common motherboards which require extra BIOS chips, MSI's M-Flash has a double advantage: firstly, it does not need extra components and secondly, all your BIOS data will be saved in the USB drive. The stored data does not only have backup and upgrade functions, but can also be seen as a portable BIOS chip which is actually able to boot up your PC.
Backup/restore your BIOS to/from any USB Flash Disk.
Avoid unnecessary repair due to accident failures during the upgrading process.
Increase BIOS lifespan by reducing unnecessary rewriting process.
Winki 3
Winki 3 is a free Linux-based operating system which is based on the Linux core. With an ultra-fast booting speed and a multi-language interface, the built-in Winki 3 provides an easy-to-use Internet environment that includes the most popular functions such as Internet surfing, web mail, instant messaging, picture browsing, and more. It's the most practical way to be online in a short time.
It has user-friendly and totally free applications with multi-language interface support.
Power on to run applications in 25 seconds.
